Amazing

clicked for Penn, stayed for Nava, Sophie, the amazing conversations and how obviously kind and good-hearted all three hosts are! I love the genuine conversations and the moments when everybody breaks out into laughter. They have a good time, I have a good time. I also appreciate them making people that seem out of reach seem so unbelievably human and approachable. All in all, great podcast!
