The podcast we all need
If you possess a body—especially a body with a vagina—stop what you’re doing and listen to this. Here’s what will happen in your head when you do: “I thought that was just me.” “I never knew about that.” “Women are magical, superhuman powerhouses.” “Whoa, me too.” This podcast is a love letter to all women still reeling and exhausted since November 2016. It’s reported with warmth and compassion. A much needed breath of fresh air..go listen now!!
So glad to have Allison back!!!
Allison is such a joy. I absolutely loved her first “intern” stint and now this. I am not a women but I am a feminist and love this show. I tell everyone about it and not always get a welcome reception because many guys are still stuck ... but it takes one guy at a time to change millions. Keep up doing a good job Allison! Everyone else - just go with it and listen. You will learn lots!!! And the podcast is well done and edited.
Allison has done it again with another amazing and compelling podcast that leaves me wanting more. This time with a more personal twist! Any guy out there should be tuning in and learning how we can be more informed and empathetic humans. This podcast is a fun, entertaining and exciting way to do it!
