The Friend Zone

Reviews For The Friend Zone

I've been listening for a while now - - these three have incredible chemistry and they bring so much value, especially when it comes to self reflection and accountability. So grateful for all the entertainment and great ideas these three explore.
Fran has an annoying voice and overbearing talk-time. This isn’t The Fran Zone, yet I timed it, and often in episodes she talks the most and the wellness segment is the longest.
Love, love, love! A must listen!
May I ask that you incorporate the artists in the normal layout of the show?
They give me life every week! I’ve learned so much about myself
such a great podcast . balanced and full of energy
Dustin, Assante, and Fran offer such a great balance of comedy and self-awareness. I love listening to them concurrently with The Read. I started binge listening to them in June and have a hearty cackle and self-reflection every episode!
I love you guys I feel like you are all perfect mixture of who I am great job guys
I listen every wednesday morning at work like clockwork. 3 distinct personalities that offer a refreshing take on mental,physical, and social health. Its definitley worth a listen.
The episode about mother-daughter relationships had me in my feelings because I thought I was the only one without the answers. Love this podcast. Been a listener since day one!
When I started listening a little over a year ago it came at the right time. I’ve been a lot more conscious of my mental state from day to day life. Also love being able to broadening my musical taste and the pure comedy that comes along with the show.
Just want y’all to know I was hella sad & couldn’t get out of it & I put on this show and now I’m all giggly. It’s not all jokes either! This show is healing w a sense of humor. 👏🏽


You mentioned “integrity”...that b$&@? has none. Anyway, love the show!!!
They can do no wrong in my eyes.
Shoutout to my homegirl Nashae for putting me on to this podcast about a year ago. Between gaining a new perspective & laughing every Wednesday, I over love The Friends Zone. 💕
LOVE this podcast!!! Always entertaining!!
Love the three of these beautiful souls. I look forward to listening to the podcast every week. There is always something to take away from the conversation.
Dustin tells the truth. That is all.
The first episode will have you thinking about how your childhood shaped who you are today. Relationships are the foundation to who we are... I love how this is such a deep conversation that I can completely relate to. I appreciate how introspective and transparent Assante, Fran and Dustin are. My only regret is that I did not listen sooner!
Love the wellness segment, the music man, dustin’s tv segment, black business suggestions. Everyting!
Subpar. Fran sounds like she has a lisp and a mouth full of spit on every podcast. I’ll pass.
I can’t get enough!!!!! Seriously my fave podcast!!!!!!
Hands down. Drops mic
I love y’all! Thank you so much for y’all energy so infectious! ❤️
Since listening to The Friend Zone, I’ve began therapy, I found target jeans that fit (hey Fran!), and I’ve just gotten my entire life all around lol. I love this. These are my REAL friends 😂☺️ ✨
Each of them fill the void in which I’m seeking within friendship. Unfortunately I don’t have a circle of friends that speak about things that are motivating ,inspirational or deep so it’s refreshing to hear them speak. My mind set has changed so it’s a matter of time until my surroundings do as well you know “your vibe attracts your tribe” as they say.
You get music, pop culture, finances, relationship advice, self care tips, literally everything you could want and more!
Fran, Assante and Dustin are the perfect trio. They make my morning commute to work so much better! Thank you!
Love love love the friend zone podcast. Fran, Dustin and Assante are everything I needed in a podcast! ♥️
You should check out tyreke and Nate video compelations see what you think about that


“All things mental health, mental wealth, and mental hygiene” Honestly, I love this podcast! It’s such a good mix of personalities that you can’t help but love! I saw them recently in Atlanta and I’ve featured this podcast on my blog - total Stan. Don’t question it, just do it - subscribe, listen, and prepare to fall in love.
Good day family! This show has proven to be my favorite podcast. I consider myself guru of fine content and this is the epicenter for quality material. Obviously the overall life improvement tips are a necessity in our community and adding comedy to the mix makes it easy to consume. I look forward to the weekly shows and Dustin is my absolute favorite. He says the most outrageous one liners in the game! Preciate you all and keep changing the world with that immensely bright light! 💥 - jetset_peedy
So, I’ve never been into podcasts, never listened to one. And I’m in love 🤷🏾‍♂️. New subscriber here.
Dustin please have a seat sir. On your throne. The Queen is DEAD!!! 🤣😂😂😂😂
These three really know how to mix a positive message with comic relief. If you're looking to laugh as well as get great advice on life tune in!
I’ve been subscribed for awhile and listen when I can. I stumbled upon ‘Missing Pillars’ and needed to hear this episode! Think of self-Help for a millennial and cooler lol
I Love the Friend Zone sooo freaking much!!! Every topic hits on something I am going through in my own life. They are my NEW religion. I feel Like GOD is using them for a very important work. I want tpo be a part of it. That is why I am doing this review. They RISE, damnit I SHALL RISE as well. I love You Fran,Assante' and Dustin. YOU ARE MY FRIENDZ and I ahve my ticket. I could not get VIP, but I hope I can get a hug.
Thank you all for the amazing vibes. You make me smile at all the right times. From a thankful Bronx Dominican afro Latina :-)
This has definitely become one of my top favorite podcast, I saw they were suggested on instagram and so of course “everything black” I do support and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them all, so relatable and easy going and funny as hell. Segments are always on point! Stay dope. Peace & Love
I absolutely love this podcast with all of my heart. Assanté, Fran and Dustin deliver entertaining, thought-provoking and spiritually insightful content. Commutes are a big part of my day, and starting my Wednesdays with TFZ sets vibe to a dope frequency. Thank you Assanté, Fran and Dustin for showing up in the EXCELLENT way that y'all do. Love y'all so much!! I highly recommend this podcast 100%.
I love the dynamic between Fran, Dustin, and Assante and I enjoy binge listening to them when I can. 😊💗
