Really enjoy this podcast
The hosts are knowledgeable and funny, and cover interesting topics. I enjoy listening to them, and it is really fascinating.
Makes my week!
These girls make my week! I love being able to learn about more then murder and ghosts. But actual factual information! They always keep it so interesting!
Love The Dirt!
I enthusiastically recommend this podcast! These women are clever, highly educated, brilliant communicators, and very funny!
The information conveyed is fascinating, and explained in a way that makes me feel like a colleague (not the durdur that I probably am in comparison). Their nerdy, witty humor is right up my alley, and I laugh out loud often. Love The Dirt!
