Totes my fave!
This podcast is incredibly entertaining and wonderfully produced! Brandon, Deepu, and Zara are great hosts. I love the format and can't wait to hear the other things they rank!
"Totes Favs" gets my "Fast Votes" for GOOD PODCAST
(It’s an anagram) Anyway, Brandon, Zara and Deepu are great hosts and I love that they’ll each stick to their guns over things as subjective as personal fears. TF is super fun, super funny and one day future historians will appreciate that they’ve meticulously catalogued the best things in the universe.
No one cares about The Jersey Devil
There once was a podcast called Totes Favs,
Of which all the critics gave big raves,
Except for one thing,
Brandon thinks he is king,
And aggressively over-argues for his entries as if any of the listeners actually care whose choices win, rather than simply wanting to be entertained!
