So glad I found this podcast!
Love the concept that Maria and Tyler have come up with. (And it doesn’t hurt that their authentic conversational style is fun to listen to!) I have a feeling this is going to be my go-to podcast when I’m looking for inspiration and motivation. I’m a high school teacher, and I know that this is a podcast that has the potential to generate meaningful and powerful conversations in the classroom, too. Looking forward to future episodes!
An inspiring conversation among friends
Maria and Tyler make you feel like they're introducing you to their cool friends who are doing amazing things in the world. Their fun, conversational style opens the door to discuss topics that can be tough to talk about.
A necessary and refreshing podcast!
Maria and Tyler approach these delicate topics from a very deferential and respectful standpoint. They offer wonderful and helpful resources for people yearning to get active in their community while giving a voice to those that may not have a podium. I am really looking forward to future episodes!
