    What. A. Day. We share our feelings on Amanda Gorman, JLo, the anti-Biden camp, and the President himself. We talk about wanting to pop the champagne while also keeping a close eye on those who have threatened more violence. We're going in the right direction, but there is so much work to do.  In the words of Snap! form 1990, "It's gettin, it's gettin, it's gettin kinda heavy."

These two are EVERYTHING!

I am new to podcasts and have to say that I’ve become a bit spoiled listening to these two fabulous ladies. I always end up laughing and crying every episode. All of the topics are timely and while most are serious.... Amy and Sarah know how to lighten the mood with their incredible sense of humor. I like that this podcast has the feel of a conversation between friends. I appreciate the honesty and candor that these ladies bring to every episode.

You won’t be disappointed.

Gaslighting

Everything you guys talked about I was like yeeeeeeaaasssss! It all hit close to home and I really enjoyed it! I have tried all kinds of podcast to keep my attention and they never do. When I listened to this podcast I never checked once how much longer it was, I always do that when listening to podcast. I enjoyed it so much, it made me feel understood even though I was listening to someone else speaking their truth, if that makes sense.
