Wonderful conversations every week!

This is my favorite pod from Crooked Media - I love the Crooked guys and their smart, funny takes on politics - but Ana Marie quiets everything down for a bit, in a sensitive, reflective way to talk to fascinating guests about deep and sometimes difficult issues. I’ve learned that if I start up feel uncomfortable, it means I need to keep listening-because the conversation is hitting close to home and inviting me to reflect. Most of all, I love Ana’s advice to all of us at the end of every show: Take Care of Yourself.

Take Care of Yourself

Love. Love. Love. I love the challenging thoughts and the deep conversations that With Friends Like These has with both political ideologies but also social and many other ideas. When I listen to Anna she feels like a dear friend who I have known for years, one who is comfortable telling you what they really think. I have laughed, cried and cried some more with this podcast and every week when she tells the audience to take care of themselves I repeat it to myself and set that intention.

Great discussions with very interesting guests. I love the reminders to be kind and take care of yourself. Like hanging out with long time best friend.
