Hi Smooches! We have a very cool guest on the podcast today. We spoke with Madeline Thatcher, who is @missmadiejean on TikTok. After the success of documenting her “Summer of Joy,” Madie has a new challenge for herself, and she’s taking us along. Madie wants to become the main character of her story. And she’s doing it amid the backdrop of seven weddings this year.
Madie is so honest about the journey to embracing the desire for love. We talked about her favorite romance media, and then played a game to let Madie take us through a hypothetical dream rom-com. Someone get Shonda on the phone, stat!
