I love this podcast but these last few episodes have been like an emotional breakthrough for me! Very entertaining and super relatable!

What We All Need Right Now

Love, love LOVE this podcast! It is indeed the perfect blend of “Ratchet and Respectable” that is just what we need right now. I’m glad to hear that you will continue doing the podcast while you’re in Ghana because I have become addicted to your sighs and “n-what?”
Keep on doing what you’re doing and we’ll keep listening.

It’s The Deep Sigh For Me

I love the show! Just started listening this week and have been binge listening to past episodes. When you do that deep sigh, I feel it in the deep recesses of my soul! I completely understand!!
