Great Show, More In-Depth Podcast
While the TV show of the same name is very well-produced and full of jokes, this podcast companion examines the issues, giving them a little more time to breathe. Putting this on Maximum Fun makes a ton of sense, given the smart sincerity of all parties involved. Really looking forward to more of this podcast.
A favorite show of mine makes an even better podcast!
I'm a huge fan of Adam Ruins Everything, so I was super excited to hear that it was coming to MaximumFun. And I was not disappointed! It's everything I love about the show in a format that's just as engaging and easier to take in on-the-go.
Love the TV show, love the extended interviews
Really enjoyed the first episode, can't wait for more expanded conversation on the topics they use on the tv show.
