    After 10,000 years, Han and Matt have finally wrapped the show. To watch the episode with our lovely mugs and our disruptive kitties (which was recorded live on Facebook!), check it out here if you're able: https://www.facebook.com/groups/hanandmattknowitall/permalink/585309755619000/
    Here's loosely what we discussed:
    Reminiscing about the history of the show! 2019 personal/life updates for us and the cats Updates on questions and things from listeners like you! A summary of our various Facebook spin-off groups (join them!) 10 Tips for a Successful Marriage What's next From the Facebook Event:
    "Hello, lovely Hamkittens of the world! Han and I have decided that our long-awaited final episode of Han and Matt Know It All will be a LIVE Facebook event so that we can collectively and symbolically hand-off the spirit of the show to its new rightful owners: ALL OF YOU AMAZING PEOPLE! ♥

    Seriously, y'all never cease to amaze me with your dedication to kindness and the work you've done fostering (so many!) safe communities. I'm a proud cat dad(dy) indeed. It's so immeasurably gratifying to see what y'all have done with the place since Han and I ghosted—err, since we've unexpectedly parted ways with you."
    From the bottom of our hearts: thank you so much for being a part of this with us. Given the chance, we would do it all again in heartbeat.
    Love,
    Han & Matt

New Listener Loving It

I’ve recently subscribed to Han & Matt know it all and it quickly became one if the podcasts I listen to whenever a new episode drops. Respectful, funny, kind and progressive. What more can you ask for from an advice podcast?

Jane Hakanson ,

Han and Matt advice to remember!

Just discovered this podcast via captainawkward, and I adore it. Super useful advice, trying and succeeding at being aware of all people and problems. Thanks so much for the transferable skills that I can put to work with my own problems. Also you’re adorable.
