I'm sure it's fine.
The absolute GOAT in the crowded marketplace of intersectional conservative pop-culture nerdcasts, now let off the leash. Gene presents a plot synopsis better than even Mike and Jay. I hope he gets out of custody soon.
Here for the segues
I realized I hadn’t rated this podcast since the demise of T** W***** S********** <extended bleeped cursing from JVL>. But today when I heard Vic’s “powerful heroine” transition, I knew I had to give it 5 stars. I’m sure it’s fun!
Best podcast ever
I love it.
