I’ve enjoyed listening to this podcast since its inception & have always been particularly entertained by the dynamic b/t Zack & Hailey, however — the show has changed dramatically & not for the better. Basically since moving to the studio. Zack, honestly you’ve always been my reason for listening but over the the past weeks you have become progressively more & more annoying & in today’s episode you were literally so over-the-top obnoxious I had to stop listening. You were much more likable when you were just a regular funny guy opposed to now, so desperately portraying yourself as some standup comedian. And also, Hailey, you’ve ALWAYS tried way too & cared too much & now with this podcast & the other podcast & mom & dad have coffee & cocktails & nothing but sponsored content, oh my god & a patreon account now, IT’s TOO MUCH.
Love Mom and Dad!
I love Hailey and Zach and their podcast - I look forward to listening every week! They are just the cutest family and have such a great dynamic. I follow their Instagram as well and can’t get enough! They’re the best!
Hi! I've been a fan of you guys for a while - both podcast actually! That's for always answering my questions in the podcast and keeping me focused at work. Not sure how that works but it does!
-Jamie Hanna (like Hannah but no h at the end) (; Thanks Hailey!
P.S. Zack said he'd ordain my wedding and I'm actually getting married in April so... let's talk dates.
