I love this podcast! Just got out of an 8 year relationship so I NEED advice 😂 I actually love the episodes when they don’t have a guest on best. (I wish they’d stop talking politics since I disagree with them on everything) but I still love their advice like my older sisters ❤️

I’ve been listening to the pod for a couple of years now, and as a young married woman, I’ve enjoyed the balance of this show. Big sister advice meets heartfelt reflection meets quality humor, there’s always something fantastic with each episode. I also enjoy how Laura and Angela break up the podcast, making the varied topics easy to listen to and enjoy. Laura and Angela give timely attention to research for each episode, and add in their personal flair along the way with their unique personalities. Long overdue review, but heck, it’s here now! LOVE from Kauai. PS just listened to the Laura + Nic love after baby episode. Love it as I’ve been married for 5 years and can relate to some of the long term topics. Also I was LOLing the whole way every time Nic was laughing at the Parents magazine advice etc. I love to hear yalls natural conversation On the podcast, it’s fun.
