Honestly some of their topics aren’t even relevant to my life (no kids here) but they are honestly the best podcast speakers and interviewers I’ve ever listened to. I love your dynamic, you both have such soothing voices and ask thoughtful questions, and insert your own experiences without sounding self-centered like some other celebrity hosts can be! Love your mental health and wellness talks. Keep it up!
