Much love for Dr. Judy!

Listen to this podcast and you will feel supercharged, I swear! I often feel the opposite of that bc of my chronic mental health disorders. After a few years of following Dr. Judy Ho’s career as an expert panelist on tv talk shows, her forensic commentary on true crime documentaries and her book on self-sabotage, I am thrilled with this podcast. Her knowledge and passion for her profession are demonstrated in every episode in a very authentic, approachable format with great variety of topics/guests.

The conversations are super approachable and practical! I am really enjoying the variety of guests and how they all come from such different backgrounds and fields! I highly recommend it!!
