Fun podcast!!

I have met April through social media, she is awesome! Then I found out she had a podcast with her husband Darryll... I am a podcast junkie so had to listen! They make you laugh and discuss real stuff all in the same episode! 10/10 for sure! #powercouple

New favorite!

I listen to a lot of podcasts. I recently got into self development podcasts, and this one has already been so helpful! I see so much potential in both hosts and love hearing their jokes and small talk in between all the serious stuff. I can't wait to hear more and I look forward to getting to know them through the show! Try it! You won't be disappointed!
