Light-hearted and interesting
I listened to this while I cleaned house and felt like I was having a yak with my girlfriends. Very enjoyable. Love how serious are addressed (with stats and all) as well as light-hearted stuff. I also love the obviously close friendship of the hosts. Can't wait for the next episode.
I listened to the first episode while finishing up some work one night and loved it! Reminds me so much of the conversations I used to have with my best friend growing up!
This podcast is a stellar way to lighten up your day when every other thing I listen to is screaming that the world is on fire. (Which it is!) this is a much needed break. While still tackling important issues, it manages to be funny, insightful & well worth a listen!
