Jessica and John will discuss the issues of the day in a brutally honest and not politically correct format. We could discuss politics, religion, pop culture, or sports. But this is not a political, religious, pop culture, or sports podcast. We discuss what you are thinking, and what you want to say out loud, but that fear of political correctness stops you. We might even throw in a story or two from “Back in the Day.” WARNING: This podcast is not for the easily offended.

Two Funny Peeps That Always Make Me Giggle
I know both and Jess and John and find them hillarious. Jess will talk about ANYTHING, and John will catch you off guard with his sly, low-key commentary that has me laughing. Take a break from information overload and enjoy the fun that is off in the weeds.
Stumbled upon this podcast via Twitter and I thoroughly enjoy it. Great chemistry between the hosts, great rhythm and interesting topics. It’s a must listen!!!
The fun aunt and uncle I've always wanted
Great commentary on everything from pop culture, current trends, people in the news and general topics. No matter where the weeds take them, their opinions are always fresh and well-backed.
John and Jess are the "crazy" aunt and uncle I want to invite to my stereotypical WASPy family's holiday gatherings so the conversation could turn from passive-aggressive chit-chat about the weather or how dry the turkey is to a full-on discussion or entertaining debate, like if Miley Cyrus brings more value to the world than Kim Kardashian.
These two are a hoot to listen to, and I hope they continue to grow!
