On the podcast, we talk about happiness, SLP lesson fails, easy (lazy) lessons, new habits we are trying to create, and tips and tricks for maintaining more SLP calm.

Feels like listening to a friend
I love the laughter and honest conversations about being an SLP. As a new SLP, Its been crucial to hear those reminders that I am still learning (and that’s okay) and others going through the same thing. I come to this podcast for inspiration and encouragement. You both are genuine and feel like I’m listening to a friend who truest gets it when it comes to being an SLP.
I’m a SLPA in Early Intervention and love listening to your podcast while I drive from house to house. Sarah’s so voice is so calming. I feel it’s relaxing from a possible stressful session, like beginning meditation. Lol They’re both very insightful and as I go back to school I like to hear about how Suri’s adventure has ended. It gives me courage to go through and get my C’s.
A great new podcast
I am truly enjoying your insight into an SLPs life and giving us a way to creep out from the paperwork and remember the reason why we got into this profession in the first place. It’s nice to receive a positive perspective while acknowledging the realities of our career.
