Honest, Funny, Healing

There is so much healing in both laughter and tears and this podcast brings those two things together. Our most painful moments in life are the ones that truly shape us and they often go untalked about, this podcast approaches those moments with humor and understanding - give it a listen!!

More like the BEST thing amirite?

Maria is the best person in general, but specifically to deal with bad things, and even more specifically the WORST thing, hence the name of her podcast. So good name for the good podcast about bad things. Speaking of bad things: iTunes reviews. I'm part of the problem.

So real and so funny

The Worst Thing with Maria Heinegg is the reason why I started listening to podcast in general. I didn’t expect that I would cry listening to podcast but that happened, and ended with laughter. She shares lots of stories of hardships in lives with her guests who are comedians. Maria’s stories with guests wash away your sadness, negativity and put you in a great mood. Highly recommended. For real.
