My favorite Holiday
It’s one thing to hear you on the radio and connect with you, it’s another to speak to you over the phone and have an even deeper connection, then to soak in your podcast and feel so much more...amazing. You are awkward and funny. You are a real person with the dream job and it’s easy to see that you are thankful and that you deserve it. I have never listened to any other podcast and I truly don’t plan on listening to any other podcast. Again, you are my favorite Holiday Meg.
