Easy Listening with LOLS
OMG! Twitter Caryn and Rabbit Rebecca are friends and made a podcast!
I didn’t listen till yesterday for homesick nostalgic reasons, but really enjoyed it.
The guests are everything with some great recommendations mixed with good conversations.
Well done Caryn and Rebecca!
A friendly chat you want to be part of
The passion for the content is clearly visible in these joyful, insightful conversations. I very much want to chime in even though I can’t LOL!
