I’m “normal”!

Dear one, Fearne…thank you for this incredible series of podcasts! I discovered Happy Place mid March 2020 when a friend recommended the recent episode with Russel Brand - awesome. I'm hooked and now getting caught up on all of your old podcasts from the beginning as I garden - thank you, thank you, thank you for this beautiful, transparent, real, honest, relatable, incredible, etc show. I’m a 59 yo California-ian and LOVE you and every guest you have interviewed. Each podcast has spoken to me deeply and helped me to realize my weird stuff is "normal"! Much appreciated.

It’s been a week since the Bay Area of California was ordered to Shelter-in while we try to gain control over Covid-19. I went on a journey looking for ways to use my time that wouldn’t be completely mindless. That’s when I can across Ferns Happy Podcast. I have thoroughly enjoyed the positivity, knowledge and energy that I receive when listening to Fern and her guests! Excellent and varied content. Such a gift especially during this time of uncertainty. Cheers, Fern!
