Missing You!

I miss listening to Amanda and Heather on my long commute to work. It felt like a conversation among friends with similar interests to my own. A rare find, indeed!

First time woo

Thanks ladies!

So real

Amanda and Heather are so much fun to listen to. They play off of each other so well. Although this they're talking about their own experiences, it's still so relatable. Definitely worth a listen.
