So amazing

This podcast is amazing!! I came across this podcast on tiktok and I have not stopped listening. I love the history lessons, speaking up for ALL humans and human rights, your voice, and advice. This podcast motivates me to be more positive, to journal, everything. I love it.

disappointed 😿

love this pod but PLEASE stop partying during pandemics, it’s not okay. millions of people around the world are dying and by staying at your house you can save lives. ily and this isn’t meant to be rude in any way, we all need to look after each other during these times, i don’t want anything bad to happen to you!! stay in your home <33
