YoAdro ,

Like having drinks with your (very interesting) best friends

Review from a longtime listener: I think the reason, besides their sparkling personalities & sharp wit - is the fact that I actually LEARN something every time I listen. It's the fact that they’re curious people on top of everything else that makes their podcast so great. A leader I worked with a long time ago said this and I think it's true of Megan & Michelle : people who are *interested* are *interesting.* You’ll want to talk about episodes with your friends, and want to be friends with Megan & Michelle IRL.

I needed this

I love the energy, vulnerability and relatable laughs that are generated through these beautifully organic conversations. When a podcast makes you laugh so hard and unexpectedly that you THINK you may have peed your pants…priceless.

Thanks for making me pee my pants. Cheers!

The best!

These ladies are the best! Great to listen to when you are missing your girls!
