Love these guys
This podcast is amazing. Laugh-out-loud hilarious with great verbal chemistry between the hosts, and at the end of the day, very heartfelt and genuine. It made my day better.
Great chemistry, love their spontaneity & banter. When they laugh you can’t help but laugh yourself. A half an hour of fun!
These guys are a hoot. They complete each other with how well they collaborate. I LOVE the 90's nostalgia. That is my generation. If you're from the 90's, then you'll get a kick out of this. Pogs, lived for TGIF, Disney concerts, Doug, loved rocko's modern life, totally forgot about bewitched, and I did watch 80's Dallas. Their show is funny, and charming, and exactly what it says it is, a necessary distraction. Lovely. Really lovely.
