Great podcast, needs better editing

I enjoyed this podcast, but there were times where the audio delay between Sam and Ricky caused them to talk at the same time and it was hard to make out what they were saying. For season 2 please use communication designed for low latency and use Sam’s usual podcast editors. They do a fantastic job on Making Sense.

Are eps still being uploaded?

I’ve been waiting for nearly a month now for more episodes and there’s been no sign of certainty from Ricky and Sam on social media. Cmon mates, Podcast Progressives (if that’s a thing) like me wanna hear more!! Absolutely died with laughter from the first ep when Ricky broke down the concept of comedy couldn’t agree more.
