An absolute knock out

I first heard Moxies calm and lovely voice guest hosting with the guys on Hysteria 51 Podcast, her wit and knowledge wowed me enough to listen to the very same podcast again! I’ve been a steady listener since then. Moxie mixes wonderfully researched facts and information together in a soothing slurry that is sure to captivate. And to top it all off, if you enjoy humor delivered intelligently, this is your podcast. Thanks again for hosting such a great podcast!

I’m just another fan. Love as you read your book. Love falling asleep to the facts. Admitting to that, I always replay most of the episodes. lol
