I like podcasts and am a fan of Alex

I’ve been reading Alex’s work for years. She’s a great writer. And now I can hear she’s also well spoken. As for this podcast, hmm. It’s really just two friends chit chatting. And that’s ok. Note to Alex, I wanna purchase your checklist book but would like to know what’s in it first. Can you put a table of contents preview on Amazon for it or somewhere I can view it. Also, would love you to talk about Hilo. Do you like living there? Are you so obsessed with it? 😀 My family and I are planning to move there over the next year or so. I’m doing so much research but would be nice to hear your experience. Thanks.

Pop culture obsessed

If you like Alex and Melissa’s other ventures, this glimpse behind the scenes at their friendship is a must listen. Best listened to in a binge! Sure to put a smile on your face. ( I would note it took me 2 episodes to catch the rhythm of who’s voice is whose.)
PS - And Alex, pineapples are the symbol of hospitality.
