I love this show!

I’ve been listening for over a year and I can’t believe I didn’t write a review yet! I love this show. Laurie always poses questions and topics that force me to step back and critically think about the world around me. At the same time, she lifts me up and encourages me to put my self first. Laurie is the bomb. 😄
