I've been a fan of this podcast since before it was even born, so I was thrilled to listen to their debut. It has everything a lover of MDI could want, primarily insider info of all kinds. Five stars, minus one for sound quality, but I suspect these super stars will have that small wrinkle ironed out by episode 2.
Smart, witty and fun!
Lean in to the way life should be. The pace is perfect, the banter smart. I look forward to the next episode!!
Love podcasts, love MDI, love the combo! Thanks ladies, keep up the good work I will keep listening :-)
