Who doesn't want to hear other people's awkward texts?
Hilarious concept. I can't resist these awkward train wrecks of text conversations. And the hosts banter back and forth make it like your reading them over with your most witty set of friends.
I can’t get enough, it’s a total guilty pleasure listening to private text message convos within the awkward world of dating Anthony ad Ian are sometimes more entertaining than the actual (cringeworthy) text convo and they both offer up real life advice, which most of us could benefit from.
Just absolutely the most ridiculous
These guys make me laugh like a bastard. The concept is good but the way they analyze everything is great.
