True soul, gentle wit

This is the podcast The Gilmore Girls would have made if that’d been a thing in the Nineties. Courtney and Bailey have a wonderful mother-daughter dynamic and a lovely perspective on adopting simplicity. I love how they start each episode with their current favorites; I get concrete value from their honest recommendations on food, books, shows, movies, etc. And the topics they choose to elaborate on in the main segments are useful and thoughtfully presented. I especially appreciate that they both have strong opinions and clear voices, but never come across as dogmatic or judging. This is my go-to podcast for self-improvement and slowing down to savor life.

Weirdly materialistic

They seem nice enough, but I’ve listened to 5 episodes so far and all I hear is several product ads thrown at you the entire time, even though they aren’t “sponsored” ads

My favorite podcast

It’s always so inspiring. It sort of feels like your listening in to someone’s conversation at a coffee shop. Just two people chatting and giving out advice on how to live a better more fulfilling life.
