Great, Honest, Timely Dialogue
The first episode is really riveting and honest conversation between Stephanie and Kendra. It was encouraging to hear how frank Kendra’s experience was and how social media played a factor in it. It’s something that all of us go through in this day and age. Subscribed and looking forward to more great dialogue.
Enjoyed this immensely.
I enjoyed listening to this podcast. I especially liked that Kendra said some things that I have heard before or thought myself but she used different language which I found very helpful. I thought several very good points were made on some very difficult subjects. Thank you so much for this.
The podcast with Kendra was really good and very powerful.
