    This was a great one Erika…so refreshing in these times listening to girls talking about wanting to be taken seriously and not sexualized.

    R. U. M. B. LE. Strip! GO!!!!!! Thanks for another great show. I was wondering if you had gone mad, but then I listened, and was reassured, once again, that you are genius, Erica Heilman. We don’t have cheerleading in Australia, certainly not in Tasmania, so my idea of cheerleading and cheerleaders comes from the worst kind of American Movies With Cheerleaders.
    But this show, I was pepped, I was so motivated, I wanted to go out there and give it all I had! Go team.

    Also, the Honey Road Sponsorship; I like it a lot. If it wasn’t 5000 miles away, I’d eat there for sure purely on your recommendation.
    By contrast I recently tried to listen to ‘Dr Death’ (I know, what was I thinking), a podcast about a super-intelligent PhD who turns out to be the world’s worst neurosurgeon, and the ads on that were like ear-torture – cruel and unusual and insulting. My one star review on iTunes says I will never engage with any of the companies mentioned.

    Greetings, I’ve been a fan for over a year and have enjoyed nearly all your podcasts, not only because I live in Montpelier. You generally have interesting topics and 100% professional production. This episode is among my favorites, great work in portraying teen girls in such a positive and affirming way. Keep up the great work.
