Truth and Dare is a podcast brought to you by Allie Van Fossen & Carly Talbott, that’s dedicated to female empowerment through living our truth and daring to change. Get excited because you’re joining a community that’s committed to breaking down barriers, living authentically, and supporting one another while we do it.

At Truth and Dare, we want to get real.

Real about what scares us, what moves us, and how to navigate everything in between. We’re about having the conversations that matter. So, whether its relationships, spirituality, anger & frustrations or cooking classes, nothing is off limits. Being a woman can be confusing, we get it. But, when we share our experiences, mistakes, and lessons learned, we can help each other grow into the strong badass women that you, me, and the world needs!

Thank you for joining the conversation, because while it’s  great just the two of us…

It’s so much better when we’re in it together.
