Best new 'cast!
I love this show!! I'm so excited to have it in my life now, wish it came out more often! Loving Danddlistens and all the music, Aliya is an amazing host.
I love the Lido Pimienta interview, and the diversity of topics you choose.
You have a habit of not naming interview subjects on the show though - you might want to think about that. I still don't know who any of the people in the Drake episode were.
Best podcast of all time! Just the right amount of B4-4!
