I discovered this podcast TODAY

It’s the funniest most amazing podcast ever. Favorite so far is “plenty of fish” and “dude poet society” Crying of laughter!

Just want to feel better

This is the show I sent to all my clients for situations when they want to feel better. I always feel better when I’m here. Thank you.

Helping me get through depression

There is something so cathartic about this show, knowing that we are all so strange. As they say at the end of every episode: “We are freaks, we are fragile, and we all survived.” I listen to this for hours on end and it makes me laugh like nothing else. Thank you for bringing joy into my life!
