  • Welcome to a special BONUS episode of Beyond the Bump! We can't believe it's been almost four incredible years since we embarked on this podcasting journey, and we're beyond thrilled to celebrate over 6 million downloads with you, our amazing listeners.

    In this episode, we're answering some of the questions you've sent in. How did we meet? Why did we decide to start a podcast? Are we besties? Plus, we'll explore whether envy ever creeps into our relationship? And if we have any regrets or things we'd do differently if we could turn back time?

    To wrap things up, we'll take a trip down memory lane by revisiting some of our first episodes, where the audio quality was... let's say, less than ideal.

    Most importantly, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you who've stuck with us for these four incredible years. Your support means the world to us, and we couldn't have done it without you. We love you Bumpies!!!!
