My Go-To Podcast

I LOVE this podcast. This is my go-to podcast whenever I'm doing something and want to drive away my boredom. I can relisten to episodes endlessly too! It just feels like friends around all the time and I love the crackhead energy haha. I love all the guests Nicole chooses because the chemistry is (usually) super on point. It doesn't feel preachy or trying to give advice, just two people discussing love and relationships and I'm all for it!

Edit: I loooove some of the guest hosts that just vibe with Nicole. There are some that don't super vibe w her or some that try to outshine. The vibing ones make the podcast truly enjoyable. The latest one was Kevin Porter.

What a treat

I listen to three of Nicole’s podcasts regularly, and I am embarrassed to admit I sometimes forget that she is a true professional. In addition to being hilarious, Nicole handles difficult interviews so astonishingly well. I almost had to turn off the JB Smoove episode because I found it/him to be so awful, but I listened because I was so impressed with how Nicole handled it. Daddy O Brien owes her BIG TIME for making her go through with that booking. Woof. I appreciate that she goes out of her way to educate listeners about sex worker rights and activism as well as shining a spotlight on social justice issues that are underrepresented in much of mainstream media. I rarely leave reviews (just rate and subscribe), but I feel weirdly and genuinely invested in Nicole’s continuing success. I hope that soon when she becomes (even more of) a household name she still has time to podcast!
