I can’t imagine life the way Leah lives it. It sure is fun to listen to her interpretation of it though.
These girls tell the best stories and one of them (Amanda?!) has a really funny laugh. Reminds me of hanging with my old friends from high school (I also grew up in Greenville). Hysterical, pee-your-pants-funny and so so honest.
These ladies are FUNNY
If you're looking for a female-led podcast that's relatable and will make you burst out laughing, look no further. These two have awesome chemistry, and these first episodes make me want MORE! Honest, hysterical and full of heart. Don't miss!!
