A space to talk about what we really think

I love that Allyson and Tiffany talk about religion and social issue and politics because they are all intertwined. I love that they shine a spotlight on other amazing women. This podcast helps keep me sane because it reminds me I am not alone in my struggles and visions for what could be with all of these areas. I love their humor and humanity. If RS was like this more would attend and we would all benefit from the conversations had.

They Feel Like Friends

I feel like I’m listening to 2 good friends who share the same struggles both in and out of the church setting. It’s an enjoyable hour, thought provoking, validity inducing, and learning opportunity. I’m so glad Tiffany and Allyson put so much time and effort into creating this safe space for us women to unite in. 🩵

Love the new format

I love this podcast and I love the new format. The short segments are easy to pause and pick back up with when I’m listening during a busy day. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and uplifting women in the church.
