My “go to” always 💕

The Brain Candy podcast was the first podcast I actually ever started listening too, and after years of listening to podcasts since it is the one I most religiously follow. These ladies have “been there” in my car or in my home on some of my best and worst days. They make me laugh until I cry, and can give you some great stories that I often bring up with friends and family. Especially the current COVID situation- I have noticed that they are one of my only sources of entertainment that is not consistently talking about the virus. It is SO refreshing. They are truly “doing the lord’s work” in this “bonkers” world. ✌️❤️🧬🍭

My girls! My besties from afar!

I cannot thank you ladies enough for giving me something entertaining to listen to. I discovered your podcast a year and a half ago and I binge listened to every episode you had in less then a week (thank you boring office job!) It fills all my needs! From the poop stories to random science facts I LIVE for the braincandy podcast. I was a patreon a for a couple months last year but had to cancel when my husband found out. 😂😂 I will be getting some braincandy merch though!!! I love you ladies!!!!
