One of the Awesomes!

My favorite podcast! I have learned so much from this podcast- from grocery pickup to about anxiety. I have listened to every episode. I love the girlfriend chat on every single topic you can think of.

Too Much Loud Laughing

Had to unsubscribe. Loud, obnoxious laughing after every statement. It hurts to listen. The content might be fine but I can’t get it.

LOVE Sorta Awesome

I just want to say THANK YOU to Meg Tietz and the Sorta Awesome crew for 1) interviewing Krystle Cobran, and 2) re-airing during this crucial time.
That interview so helpful to me, and addressed and validated a lot of my feeling and concerns around talking about race. It’s hard and scary for everyone, but it has to be done.
Thank you, thank you. So glad I found your podcast and Facebook group because it always gives me what I’m looking for, whether it’s light-hearted and fun or meaningful and thought-provoking.
