The Prosiest Podcast by Sarah Rose

By Sarah R McMahon
Welcome to The Prosiest! An online space where weirdness is celebrated and storytelling is paramount. We are both fun and serious; cheeky but thoughtful. We enjoy a warm zebra print snuggie and a cold Moscow mule. We despise t-shirt quotes. We embrace the Oxford Comma. Inspirational sports movies make our eyelids quiver with dread. "Nothing is off-limits, yet everything is sacred," said Socrates (maybe).

We discuss: Running | Eating Disorders | Relationships | Writing | Mental Health | Life
