I’m sorta alright

This show is always incredible. So many episodes I go back to and listen to again and again. The I’m alright episode helped my brain tremendously today. Thank you.

The sweetness we need

This show is a sweet place to be, and a relief in an onslaught of hard news. Thanks for telling these stories that show how diverse and delightful and heartbreaking love can be. The recent episode of the lady scientists and the mars rovers was a tearjerker 🥹
