Millrose Podcast is about thoughtful conversation with friends. It’s a safe place to process what you’re thinking about, what’s happening in life, or bounce ideas off each other. It’s where you can laugh, maybe sometimes cry, but it all nurtures the relationships with those you trust and helps build new ones with those you’re getting to know.
