Hooked on this Podcast!

This podcast always brightens my mood and I literally count down the days until the next episode is released because it’s THAT fun and engaging to listen to. We need to hear her message- that we aren’t alone in our insecurities and that self-love is the most important form of love ❤️

Relatable AF

I came across Linda on Instagram and then found her podcast. I am OBSESSED. It isn’t always easy to find fat-centered conversation or content so I am beyond happy I found Plus 1. I love real conversations about real people and that’s exactly what Plus 1 offers. I’ll be a lifelong listener 💞
