More like the BEST thing amirite?
Maria is the best person in general, but specifically to deal with bad things, and even more specifically the WORST thing, hence the name of her podcast. So good name for the good podcast about bad things. Speaking of bad things: iTunes reviews. I'm part of the problem.
So real and so funny
The Worst Thing with Maria Heinegg is the reason why I started listening to podcast in general. I didn’t expect that I would cry listening to podcast but that happened, and ended with laughter. She shares lots of stories of hardships in lives with her guests who are comedians. Maria’s stories with guests wash away your sadness, negativity and put you in a great mood. Highly recommended. For real.
the pdcast is good
Maria has created a very engaging podcast experience, like listening intently to two friends at a coffee shop, lounge, or other relaxed and intimate environment. the background laughter and conveyed body language add to the feeling of warm warmth. i would recommend this podcast to anyone who enjoys a good story from a feeling human being.
