This is about me!

Wow, this happens everywhere and happens way too often. I've never been compelled to rate a podcast until now

cassondrap ,

Finally a binge worthy podcast!

I absolutely love this podcast show! As someone who has a very specific taste in podcasts, I often struggle to find shows that have me fully engaged. I can't wait to see more episodes and hear more women's stories similar to hers. The 3.9 rating is completely baffling to me, as many other shows with higher ratings don't even come close to the quality of this one. Keep up the great work!

Waste of time

First episode caught my attention and then it evolved into this persons life story which was boring and drawn out. I couldn’t get past episode 4.
