When people ask me to recommend a podcast I usually mention Serial or Malcolm Gladwell’s to make myself sound smart... but I’m realizing now how selfish it is to keep this podcast a secret! Grace and Becca have educated me on all the new products I need to buy, which instagram accounts I need to peruse, and the books to read that are good for the soul.
Dangerous to listen to at the gym
Grace and Becca are so hilarious. I typically listen to podcasts instead of music at the gym, but I’ve had to switch away from BoP when doing some overhead lifting because I start to break out laughing.
That aside, it’s been good motivation to make myself go to the gym on Wednesdays because I want to listen to this so much.
Love these girls!
I stumbled on their podcast at the very beginning and they are the best way to start my Tuesday at I drink my coffee and get ready. They are my "clean and wholesome" podcast friends and I look forward to their giggly banter and highs & lows each week. Keep them coming! Its nice to hear guests, but you two are the main event!
