I am so thrilled I found this podcast! It shines the light on completely loving your true self, cooking from joy, and serving others with an authentic heart! Thank you for the Truth you deliver.
Wonderful Season One!
I am so incredibly impressed with this first season, and can’t wait for more! The interviews are thoughtful, and honestly - I’m here writing this because I absolutely LOVED the bonus Oxo episode. My instinct when I saw the title was ‘oye, commercial episode’ (unfair snap judgment on my part) but it was just as amazing of an interview as all the others, and ‘you need to build to solve’ is going to stick with me for life, honestly. Thank you Julia, I love this podcast so much!
Truly love this podcast
I really look forward to listening to this every week. Julia has such a knack for making me feel like I’m hanging out with whomever she is interviewing, and I love the listener questions section with Grace at the end. It would be 6 stars if there were such a rating.
