Anastasia Violet Lipske ,

Love the Variety of Guests on this Show!

Really enjoying Nan's podcast! The women she's interviewed have been powerful and inspirational. What incredibly diverse lives her guests have lived and to have them sharing their journeys are both interesting and empowering.

And for those special men, she interviews as well...I like that too! I greatly enjoyed hearing Colin Gray of Alitu.com talk about podcasting!
