    It’s the big turkey feast week here in the United States, and we are more than happy to keep you company while you drive, cook, or go for a long walk to escape all the family TOGETHERNESS! Meg and Kyle have some thoughts on what you could watch, read, listen to, and find delightful in lifestyle in the week ahead. From Netflix rom-coms to Adele’s 30 to a possible snore-stopper and an introduction to Kum & Go, they’ve got all kinds of silliness to keep you distracted (and maybe inspired?).

Awesome girlfriend chat podcast!

Meg and her rotating cast of amazing co-hosts talk about their awesome of the week, and then might talk about a certain theme or topic. It’s like a girlfriend chat show, but you feel like you’re right there, and you definitely do not feel left out. They are like the friends I wish I had during the pandemic! Shameless unsolicited plug- I love the extras and “overflow “ episodes in the Sorta Awesome Patreon.

Can’t listen with Kyle

I am long time listener, but cannot handle the episodes with Kyle. I like the content (watch, read, listen) but cannot stand how much he is interrupts and his attempt to be funny.

Kgirl857 ,

Just Meg please

I was a regular listener before Kyle started. Please go back. Kyle may be a great husband but he is distracting and adds nothing good to the show. Not awesome at all.
