Northern Sask listener
So far so great! I feel like I’m right there having coffee with you guys, laughing and enjoying the stories. This is one of the first podcasts I’ve cared to listen to and I’m glad I did. Your mother is definitely a warrior and quite the character you can tell she’s had an interesting life, I’m glad you took the time to record these stories to share.
Coffee with Ma
This is podcast reminds me of the kitchen table conversations I’d overheard in my youth. It feels familiar, intimate, educational, funny as hell, honesty and unruly! I wish more of us thought to do this... record the stories of our loved ones! I couldn’t love Ma more!! She’s such a beautiful example of being a woman into yourself💕
