Love love love
This is my #1 favorite podcast! It’s absolutely fab. I can relate to it so much and it makes me feel like I’m not alone in this crazy 20-something time of my life. Not only is it relatable, it’s extremely educational and I deeply appreciate Oenone for being a beautiful human and bringing light to certain topics and issues that need to be discussed. Can’t wait until the new episodes come out. xo
Relatable, relevant and challenging
I’ve only listened to a few episodes so far, but as a 19 year old who’s passionate about lifestyle and wider social issues alike, I’d say this podcast is brilliant. It acknowledges hard truths and while it’s not necessarily the easiest subject matter to digest, it’s stimulating and tackles important/relevant issues in a relatable way that’s still relatively light hearted.
Love this podcast so much
I absolutely love Oenone and her adulting pod. She’s so brilliant and intellectual, and presents opinions and ideas in such a tasteful and mature way. She always has on great guests and inspires me in so many ways. I can’t wait to see where oenone goes with this podcast!
