Great show. Great hosts! Fun conversation! Great advice!

Team Fran! All day!

by LivingLightlyLifestyle on Jul 28, 2017
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I showed up for Fran and left because I wasn't getting enough of her here. The jokes and laughed are cool but maybe I'm just too old for all that in the morning. Fran's wellness sections are everything. She should have her own show for the "mature" crowd and leave this show for the younger folks. I give her 5 stars but her cohosts aren't my favorite.

Love Ya'll!

I love this podcast! Sometimes it gets frustrating when Fran is trying to make a good point and may be teetering in seriousness, but Asante KEEPS INTERRUPTING with that little voice. I think it's funny most times but it's so frustrating when he doesn't know when to quit. Overall great show and I love the topics!

The friend zone podcast is near and dear to me. Listening to Fran Dustin and Assante is like having a conversation with friends. And I find myself talking with my real life friends about Fran Dustin and Assante like they're my friends IRL. I particularly love the advice segment because they each have different perspectives but have so much respect and admiration for one another.

I swear this podcast has changed a lot of my view on people. It's a serious discussion created by Fran but Dustin's comedic timing makes it lighter. Plus, Assante's Relatability is all you can ask for. It's amazing.

I love the chemistry that the hosts have. They balance and compliment each other. The content is always helpful with the mix of fun and laughter. I've also enjoyed supporting independent businesses that I was introduced to because of being highlighted on the show.

I've been listening to the friend zone for a couple of years now. And I listen on Spotify, SoundCloud and just found out 2 weeks ago that that the podcast was on iTunes. Keep doing your thang. This podcast has gotten me through quit a bit. This podcast is my weekly deodorant because I would hate for my brain to be musty. Peace and blessings.

I won't when I started the show about 5 months ago and at first I didn't quite get the insiders but I kept listening and I absolutely love it and listen to it all the time. The friend zone has introduced me to so much and has actually change the way I feel and think and act. I am internally grateful. I love it because it's relatable.. it's self care with a ratchet flare.. you can listen to love & hip hop & also discuss politics & health! Love this podcast! Currently listening to the 1st year wind up.

The Friend Zone has helped me in so many way. When I thought I was alone in my thoughts and feelings, I was wrong. Loves how Fran does her research for each weekly topic. Also, Assante and Dustin's introductions are a great way to start the show. Definitely can see the growth of everyone from the podcast. Love to see them doing great things. ❤️❤️❤️

Get into them so you keep your brain from being musty

Total shift

by Firelakie on Jun 21, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

This had potential to be innovative and unique when it first launched. Billed as "health and wellness" with "who wants a musty brain", TFZ was not informative or enlightening. HeyFranHey showed laziness(I suspect) in literally Googling topics right before taping. Black Girl in Om she is not. Her discussion is best for very introductory, shallow exploration into pop culture health. The other two are good at what the podcast wants to be: The Read lite. Discussing the RHOA and LAHH has nothing to do with wellness. Dustin and Asante exhibit unwillingness to be open to growth. REBRAND YOURSELVES. Stay out of the pop health and wellness lane and go be The Read's mini show. I was their biggest fan so it's disappointing.

You Are Among Friends

This show is just as it sounds, it is a zone where you feel like your listening to the stories of all your friends. Dustin and Assante will leave you on the floor with their jokes and Fran's advice will help you get your life together. This show is so honest and I live for the advice they give and the fun they have doing it. It really makes you feel like you are amoung friends, the good kind of friends that make you laugh but also push you to do more for yourself and be the best you can be. This show saves me every week and I love it!

This podcast just works. There are enough gossip rag podcasts, this is a nice balance. I never heard of Dustin and Assante before this, but remember Fran from the natural hair movement. They work well together. My least favorite parts are the reality show recaps..they just take too long.

I thoroughly enjoy listening to y'all on Wednesdays! Every week, y'all are right on time with the gem for which I've been praying. It's amazing. The relationship that Dustin and Assanté have reminds me a lot of my relationship with my sister: absolutely hilarious! I love experiencing this side of Fran! She's so much more relatable in this environment. Keep doing what you're doing! You're blessing so many of us!With love and positive vibes,Anastasia

I love this podcast. A friend of mines introduced me to this podcast because I'm try to use all natural products and eat well. She ask me if I've heard of hey Fran hey and I'm like who or what is that. After listening to a few episodes I fell in love with the show. It's been about 6 months since I've been listening and I can't wait for each episodes. You guys are doing a great job. Stay black and protect your magic. Xoxo
