HIGHLY RECOMMEND

The dynamic between Michelle and Sarah couldn’t be any better. Michelle’s extensive knowledge makes the podcast insightful and Sarah asks the follow-up questions that any active online dating millennial wants the answer to. Extremely enjoyable and insightful. Love to listen to this!!
