Amazing! Highly reccommend
First, Kye's voice is so soothing and their thoughts are always engaging and interesting. Honestly, I started listening because my friend Steph was on an episode and I just got hooked! It's so refreshing to listen to an HONEST podcast that goes into all the things society says we shouldn't talk about. You will definitely find yourself nodding along or wanting to add to the conversation. Seriously do yourself a favour and check it out, awesome awesome awesome!
comforting and angelic
kye is doing the world a great service with this podcast. they’re easy to listen to, comforting, funny, engaging, great at getting guests to feel totally ok with being super vulnerable as they talk about the weird feelings that plague them (and plague us all!!!!).

my favorite podcast. i highly recommend it for all people to help you understand yourself better, as well as other people and world.
