Humorous yet Authentic
I wouldn’t have thought that a conversation between two people, totally unedited, could be so much fun to listen to! I SUPER enjoyed listening to humorous yet totally authentic conversations between acquainted people reconnecting.
A MUST listen!
For anyone looking to get a sense of the world-- what people are *really* doing and thinking; look no further! TalkMeg is a genuine, funny, surprising, and intimate look into the lives and thoughts of a variety of people. Rather that curating a show around a specific theme, Margaret talks to anyone and everyone and we as listeners get to enjoy and empathize with each guest and the ups and downs of everyday life. Listening to this podcast has broadened my perspective on people and the world and at the same time has helped me to realize how similar we can be. I highly recommend it for anyone and everyone!
