I’ve been binging this podcast since I came across it a few months ago. I started with the current episodes and enjoyed it so much that now I’m going back and listening to the older ones. I have a really long commute and spend 3+ hours in the car some days, but now that I’ve found this podcast I actually look forward to that time because I get to listen to two, sometimes three episodes a day and I literally never get tired of it. I love how the topics are always discusses in such a real and honest way, and I feel like I learn something from every single episode. I’ve found myself making positive changes in my life because of it. Plus, Kelsey, Delanie, and Taylor are hilarious and I often find myself laughing out loud in my car alone, looking like a crazy person while stuck in traffic. I’m truly not sure what I’m going to do when I run out of old episodes to catch up on.

From Monica, not Vivian, I’m poor and I share my moms Apple account

I started listening during quarantine as something to fill my time (like the rest of the world) and have since fallen in love. I kept telling myself I would just listen to some and then found myself saying, “but just one more” and am now on a binge streak. I love how you guys touch on so many topics, whether it is directly pertinent to your lives or not, and talk about them with such genuine curiosity and openness (which this world needs more of). And actually thanks to your episode on raising a child with a disability (I’m a pediatric physical therapist) I had a light bulb moment of realizing the diagnosis of a kid I was treating. Also thanks to you all, I am realizing more and more how much my anxiety effects my life and that I’m not crazy or alone. But anyway, thanks for the laughs and discussions. Keep up the good work ladies!

Needs a Refresh

I used to LOVE this podcast- but the ladies may need to refresh it a little post-Taylor. The episode on random facts wasn’t great and it shows they may need a real thought process on how to proceed. I get they’re busy, but I have been a loyal listener for about 4 years and the listeners deserve better than repeating random facts.
