My New Favorite 😄
These guys are hilarious! Truly a brilliant podcast that has me laughing every minute. Intelligent banter and unique perspectives.
I’ve already binged through everything and I can’t wait for more! Great job guys. You’ve left me wanting more 😊
5 stars or nothing
I listened to this podcast over the last 2 months
My only negative feedback is that in episode 10 there was a discussion of Ethan Hawke. While I agree he is not relevant and was good in the movie Boyhood, the show host failed to name his Best work which was “Dead Poets Society”
I leave this review knowing how much the guys love pointless Trivia
Nice work guys! Show is really good!!
If Big Donut is your favorite track, you probably like this podcast.
The guys are easy to listen to, and have good chemistry. They riff off each other constantly, always moving the bit forward, but also a little bit to the right. Like a never ending right hand turn.
These guys manage to poke fun at pop culture while keeping themselves grounded, and relatable. I could easily see myself hearing this kind of banter at a week night bar outing with my buds. Keep up the good work, excited to hear more!
