I have cried so much

I got hooked on this podcast with the episode of the Islamic women and Jewish women coming together and realizing the sisterhood that they shared. I have cried so many times while listening to the stories on With Friends Like These. My children were In an extremely diverse school district. I feel blessed that my sons were friends with young people from all over the world including some DACA youth. I love the honest and vulnerable heart of this podcast. Thank you!

Relatable

I originally disliked this podcast for a number of reasons, but mostly I found Ana annoying. I continued to give the show chances because I liked the content, and I’ve been known to judge too quickly. Now I love the show. I realized that many of the things I found annoying about Ana are really just things I find annoying about myself. Most of all, her talk about addiction (though my struggles are on a much smaller scale) is incredibly helpful and relatable. Even when I find myself failing to be my best, her show helps me pick myself back up. Thanks Ana.

Depth

I appreciate the depth of discussions w/o getting too deep in the weeds.
