This is dope as heck
Been jamming MC Lars since forever and I’m super excited to see him enter the podcast arena. Amazing guests so far and looking forward to hearing The King of Maine AKA Peter Sparker AKA Maine Gretzky!
Mc Lars is awesome. From his music to his guests to everything he does. I'm a huge fan and he never disappoints.
