Brilliant & Honest
This show is outstanding. Compelling conversation about interesting and creative people, hosted by one of the best interviewers in the country.
Also, I NEED that And The Lights remix intro music. Please, I gotta get it somehow. . .
smart idea, well executed
this show proves why weed is worth thinking and talking about in a deliberate way. lammer is a great host and interviewer. this show could easily become a parody of itself, but it is not. listen and enjoy.
Great conversation, great content
Finally! A show where people talk about weed in a way that doesn’t force my eyeballs to get stuck from rolling them so hard. Aaron’s a fantastic interviewer, always conversational, yet deep. Looking forward to hearing this show evolve.
