Whether you’re just waking up, commuting to work or taking a stroll to the grocer, a good podcast can be just the dialogue you need for company.

The Melissa Ambrosini Show
With one hell of a strong core message — “love is sexy, healthy is liberating and wealthy isn’t a dirty word” self-help guru and motivational speaker Melissa Ambrosini inspires by acknowledging and embracing the fact that everyone’s best life must be lived on their own terms, and encourages listeners to find out exactly what that means for them. With topics covered ranging from meditation to childbirth to healing through food choices, it’s evident Ambrosini leaves no room for negativity, and focuses on lifting spirits in every way possible.
