Fresh and thoughtful
Only one episode in and I'm already hooked. Estée provides thoughtful insight and a clear voice, while still being incredibly charming and fun to listen to. I loved her take on the idea of protest and it's importance in our current political climate, and I was shocked by vulnerability she showed by sharing her personal story about attending an anti-abortion protest. Everything felt natural, yet well crafted. This American Life meets Women of the Hour meets Fresh Air. I can't wait to hear more.
I love Estee's voice (stylistically and literally) and I really appreciate her deep dive into important topics. I'm looking forward to hearing much more from her!
There are quite a few influencers that have podcasts that mimic their blogs/YouTube channel, etc. This is NOT a blogger podcast. It has depth and the quality, in both subject and editing, is outstanding! This is my favorite thing you've done yet, Estee! I can't wait to hear more.
