    When friendships change

    When friendships change

    Friends come and go –– but these connections can be just as impactful as familial or romantic relationships. In this episode of Thick & Thin, I talk about the potential hardships of maintaining adult friendships when we are all navigating different phases in life.

    Am I the exception or the rule?

    Am I the exception or the rule?

    Maybe it's time to break the rules. In this episode of Thick & Thin, I decide to catch up with a guy from the past and hope to either uncover some answers or reignite the flame.

    The dangers of future-tripping

    The dangers of future-tripping

    Cheers to the present! We will never be able to tell the future, so why spend the energy worrying about it? In this episode of Thick & Thin, my goal to stop wasting my time trying to control the narrative, but sometimes the anticipatory anxiety and endless what-ifs win.

    Having a bad day?

    Having a bad day?

    In this episode of Thick & Thin, I share two tales. The first describes a genuinely considerate man in love. While the latter details a woman's ability to cheat death, not once but twice in one day.

Katy's Podcasts are so relatable ❤️

One thing I like about Katy's podcast is that they are so relatable and that's what I like. I also like that she focuses more on the content and she has some very interesting trivia at times. Keep up the good work! I give this one a 5/5.

A wordsmith, a poet, a true role model

Can only say amazing things. Talk about someone who is constantly open to growth & inspires me to ask tough questions interpersonally. This girl is a WORDSMITH. truly such a queen 🤍🌙✨

Needs improvement!

I used to be obsessed with this podcast but I find myself getting lost when ads interrupt the story.

I wish the ad placements were a bit more separated whether it was saying “shoutout to the sponsors that make this podcast possible” before ad reads or separating it with tunes like other podcasts do.

I also really miss when you talk about what you’re reading and watching I find that super helpful and a sweet and way to connect with your listeners!
