As always, Mike and Dave are on point with humor, wit, and fascinating insight. As a fan of War Machine vs War Horse (Mike’s other show) and Pop Culture Case Study (Dave’s) I was thrilled to hear two of my best podcasting friends team up on the reg.
Dave and Mike are a match made in heaven. Or hell. I’m not sure which, but I love it. Their chemistry and banter leave little to be desired. I’m just waiting for the raw sexual magnetism to eventually explode through my ear buds. I will be there for that day and you should too.
I love this show. The guys are hysterical and super fun to listen to.
