Pitch-Perfect Podcast

Ashley Nicole Black is the most masterful, natural and charismatic host and she elevates the already well-chosen guests and topics to a whole new level. This podcast is informative, broadening, fun and easy-listening. Without question, Sip On This is my favorite podcast.

Thank you.

Please don’t have Robin Thede back on. You were awesome. I found myself longing to hear your voice or even ask a question. I didn’t appreciate how many times you were interrupted by Robin and how many times she just repeated exactly what you were saying only louder. You are a natural, you are wicked funny, supremely wise. Thank you.

Ashley is so smart, wise, and funny!

Loved the episode with Ashley’s mom. Black parenting excellence. Also loved the episode with Sam Bee who seems very down to earth and considerate as a boss.

Great advice pod from someone who actually gives inspired advice.
