Fun and Super-Informative Podcast

I’ve been listening to the SPA Girls for a while now and am always excited when a new episode shows up on my list. The girls are so much fun, but don’t let that fool you. Together they have decades of experience and they often invite other experts to shake things up a bit. It’s mind-boggling how they always know what I need to hear at any given moment…
