Very funny stories about life!
This podcast always has me laughing. Theresa tells us a story about her life - whether that is carrying around a toilet seat in public or canning over 1,000 jars in one summer - in a way that is sure to have you laughing. I like that it is family friendly too, so I can listen with my kid. As of this review, she has 28 episodes. My favorite so far is Episode 18, Turn off that Pressure Cooker and Get a Life!
