holapeopleeee ,

Very insightful

These podcasts provided a lot of insight that I never considered before. I was able to obtain a lot of useful advice while listening to her interviews.

Isthatyourhorse ,

Disappointing

Not what I thought it was. I’d rather just listen to the guests without the host

coachwagon ,

Questionable population

I don’t feel that the host nor the majority of guests are an accurate representation of the eating disorder community. For that reason, I cannot recommend this.
