Michele Rocks!

One of the MANY reasons why I love this podcast is Michele creates a relaxed environment to talk about something that should be at the forefront of all our conversations. Therapy! She takes the stigma out of mental health, creating a safe space for her guests to open up, and the listeners to laugh, learn, and enjoy. Plus she’s hilarious! Keep um coming’ Michele, I’m all ears!

Consent to Vent Approved!

What a creative platform for comedy and therapy. I was thoroughly entertained and especially enjoyed Kelly and Amanda as guests; they were hilarious and relatable. I really loved the format and found the roulette portion exciting!!! Would recommend 10/10, can’t wait for next weeks episode!!!
