Love it

Love this podcast. Heard about it through MFM and am not disappointed. It’s so interesting to hear what people are actually going through.

Real, daw, genuine, emotional, terrifying, beautiful, true.

It’s so hard for me to find podcasts I love. I binged every episode in like a week lol. I’m constantly checking for a new video. This podcast is special, because it’s authentic. It’s genuine, raw, real, sometimes terrifying and sometimes beautiful. These stories make me feel so grateful for what I have, they help me to not feel so alone, they teach me a lot about life in general, and their all around just entertaining. 100% my favorite podcast by far.
