Some good stuff!
Amazing episode with Dr Karen Dr Karen Dr Karen, but Yoni live once was such a let down. Poor sound quality and not buying into there’s a ‘special invisible channel from the heart to the womb.’ More real life concrete discussions, get back to the stuff you do well!
Ps. Where’s Cherry?!?
Brilliant, brilliant show hosted by three very brave and very open women. I look forward to listening in to many more. Bravo ladies of the hotbed x
