"Hi, just came across your podcast with Brent Sanders and just wanted to say how glad I am that I listened.
I’ve always had discussions like these with my girlfriends, but it is so refreshing to 1. Listen to men talk about/sympathise with it and 2. Have everything I think but can’t always explain, in a format such as this podcast to be able to share around.
As unfortunate as it is that not enough people have this knowledge (I know I would have loved to know this stuff in high school), very appreciative you’ve used your platform to educate like this. Loved it! 💕"
