I used to enjoy it, but over time Jolenta's voice and attitude just got to be too much.

Entertaining podcast, I like how they break down self-help books into actionable parts. Only fault is there's a lot of filler episodes. Epilogues, with the husbands, recap, review, etc, etc. Not a biggie since I usually skip those episodes.
