Even though the holidays are supposed to be merry and bright, they can often be the most stressful when it comes to dealing with our families.

Refreshing, engaging and downright enjoyable ways to improve your life. Free! What more could you ask?
Amy and Mr Smith provide love and life advice you can really take to the bank. I tune in to every pod, even if I don't think it's directly relevant to me. Nine times out of ten, I learn something new, or have some new insight, that gives me a shove in the right direction. Plus, it's always so much fun. These guys love to laugh, and make their listeners laugh, too.
When it comes to the life coaching part, don't expect hand holding or baby steps. Amy tells it to you straight. Reeeeeeeally straight. But only in the way that your best friend would. That's what the pod is like - screwing up your courage to talk to two great friends about your inner worries, and then realising it's not so bad after all and heck, you can even do something about those worries.
Every episode is a joy to listen to. Trust The Joy Junkie.
