WINDOW CHATS with ROBYN

WINDOW CHATS with ROBYN

The Instagram Live Podcast where Robyn Deverett sits by her window, and chats with very interesting people! Why the name, “Window Chats” you ask? Well I don’t have a balcony, hence my window, and a “chat” seemed less intimidating than “interrogation” 😛⁣⁣⠀ What can you expect? Random conversation/technical glitches/awkward silences and lot of laughs with various guests 🥰⠀
