Made my commute super awesome

I watched the fictional show (sort of autobiographical of Mae Martin)Feel Good recently, and it was cool. Decided to listen to this and it was amazing. I'm a social worker that treats substance use disorders and I'm considering playing some of this for patients. Or at least highly recommending it. All other parts were also amazing and in line with some of my thoughts on sexuality.

Fantastic!!!

I loved it! You won't want to stop listening. I can't wait to listen again with my girlfriend. Highly recommended! Inspiring, insightful, transparent, and hysterical. I'm left with a lot to think about. You are the best "bath water". Keep it up! You never disappoint!

love Mae Martin

Lovely, hilarious, and charmingly awkward Mae Martin gives us a funny look into sexuality and gender from her own experiences. Through the lens of comedic story telling we hear what it was like to grow up with hippy liberal parents, how she's been misgendered and her sexuality assumed. She's always a delight to listen to. Thanks for the laughs, Mae!
