So refreshing!

Such a warm, easy-to-listen-to podcast. Sarah makes for a kind, interesting interviewer who does not speak just to hear her own voice. :)

Mmmmm

I am thoroughly enjoying these small windows into Madeleine’s life and legacy. Sarah is a thoughtful host and interviewer who is not only a MLE fan but also a wise voice in her own right. Each episode has felt like a conversation with the best kind of friend. I loved A Light So Lovely, and listening to this podcast has felt like sitting in the warm light just a bit longer. But in a way that makes me want to write and live with vibrancy and intention—to show up for my life just as Madeleine showed up for hers. Thank you, Sarah for your beautiful work!
