Fun podcast!

This is a fun podcast featuring two fascinating women with opinions on just about everything from wine to movies to language to daily happenings in their lives in Mallorca. I only docked them one star because they need to be a bit closer to their microphone when recording their episodes. But content wise it is spot on and fun to listen to.
