Good vibes!

Atheer and Amamah are great co-hosts. I love their chemistry.
Loved the Aston Womack episode. The Nation Of Islam is a fascinating homegrown cult. I love cults!
And their dating advice and asides about mediation where inspiring. Going to take it up again. I lapsed for the past few months. Anyway, keep going!
