Fills an important niche
The podcast helps both young people in a transition period and parents (and aunts and uncles) of young adults applying to college, getting used to college, moving into the work world, exploring alternatives. This is such a rich time of life, and listening in on how people handle it is inspiring.
I began to understand what authenticity, integrity, and courage meant to me when I went out on my own in college. But I really wish I had someone like Annmarie to coach me through how to embody them in my life. I would've loved listening to this while in college. Annmarie highlights important lessons for all of us as human beings, and she does it in a compassionate and insightful way.
I fell in love with this podcast! I was lost in my world before this podcast and it changed the direction in my life! I cannot be more thankful for this podcast!!
