This is Joy and Claire is an evolution of the weekly podcast Girls Gone WOD(R), which we created back in June 2013. Since then we have released over 400 weekly episodes and bonus features and created an amazing community of supportive listeners around the world. We are so excited to bring years of podcasting experience to this new project, with honesty, humor, and insights on everything from mental health, wellness, marriage, and parenting, to all the other random things that you’d talk to your friends about.

New episodes are available every Thursday, wherever you get your podcasts.
