I love love love you guys!!!
I am a 66yr young woman who has lived my life with severe PTSD. I was physically and emotionally abused as a young girl and living a “so called” normal life was just not realistic. I have always felt different but I am now more aware of why, thanks to inner child work💞I have, had three siblings, my youngest brother died from a drug overdose. I am not close to my living brother, he is very closed off to having any relationship. My sister and I are just now trying ro get to know each other. We all lived in an abusive home , so I understand. You guys and your open, vulnerable relationship makes me feel sane and somewhat normal. Love you so much and I look forward to every episode. You guys are so fun !!! Stay beautiful Oliver, you are a precious man. Katie, your laugh makes me laugh. You both are open and always trying to be better humans. We all need to be kind and love, sometimes from afar but Kindness and love is the answer to living with peace. I love getting to know you two. We are all human, we CAN live a life with forgiveness, love and kindness without judgement. Enjoy your life with each other. Life is to short for anything else!!!
Hit or miss
Some episodes are worth while and of benefit if just for the guest contribution. There definitely is a sense of Hollywood insecurity from the hosts. As someone who needs total authenticity I do struggle with aspects of the show but since I find myself continuing to listen I think I owe it a 5star rating.
This would be my favorite if...
there was any consistency to episodes being released. Sometimes it’s once a week... sometimes every few weeks?
