Domani Balliamo ,

I love this podcast.

How many of you are familiar with “laughing therapy?” I cannot remember if it is simply a Southern European therapy that my aunt used to practice on me and my sisters, to make us laugh, or a neglected global therapy that costs nothing to practice.

It worked like this: my zia Antonietta, definitely not my zia Angelina, would begin to laugh like a mad woman and before you knew it was contagious: me and my sisters would start laughing, with tears in our eyes, without really understanding why.

While I would never suggest that the hosts of this podcast are mad, never, what I would suggest is that this podcast is so funny while being entertaining and educating that is worth a look. 😜

It’s a lot of fun!

I enjoy this podcast a lot! The hosts are a lot of fun and often outright hilarious! The anecdotes they share about their lives sometimes just leave me rolling on the floor! They are obviously wonderful, long-time friends and truly care for each other.
The movies and books they have seen and and read have opened my eyes to new genres and classics I knew nothing about before. I’ve had great fun exploring the movies and books they recommend (or not)!
My only wish is that Melanie would give Edward more time to speak. She’s funny, smart and energetic, but sometimes, Ed can’t get a word in!
For nerds like me, I’m in heaven every time I listen. It’s fun, engaging and a delightful time.

Like cocktails with friends

Thanks for letting us eavesdrop on your weekly fun! The best conversations are about the personal and their writing. It is a fun hour.
