Honest and real and funny

I really enjoy this podcast. The guests are so honest and real and brave and sometimes I cringe with them and for them.

Brianne Knocks It Out Of The Park

Brianne Davis-Gantt is a treasure. Seriously. Her episodes are revealing, but not exploitative.

The overarching theme of this podcast is You’re Not Alone... and it’s time to let go of the shame and guilt so that you can live your best life.

This is yet another home run for Brianne. Keep the episodes coming!
