I love Sarah

And I could listen to her for hours. Her podcasts are always fascinating and peppered with interesting insights, and she and her guests always have such a good time that I feel welcomed in as a listener.

Love this!

Appreciate the wide range of topics, including a number that I would never have considered. Plus the humor, and the terrible jokes. Thanks, sarah!

Thank you Sarah Wendell!

I can’t begin to count the ways listening to Sarah & her guests each week have made my life better. I started listening for book recommendations as I tiptoed back into reading romance, but it’s become so much more. Sarah has legitimized so many thoughts & feelings about being a woman in this time and this country. Plus she ends every episode with a terrible joke that always makes me laugh!
