Iggy's Awkward ,

Thank you so so much

First of all I love the podcast

I get stressed extremely easily and find it difficult to unwind and finally relax. These podcasts and the short stuff podcasts are one of the rare times that I can forget about life. I really appreciate the work that you guys put in. Also I’m an artist and I need a specific type of stimulus for background noise. I can’t say how thankful I am.

Thanks😊

2 Unprepared guys sharing imprecise info

Very little preparation on the hosts part, and they don’t have enough knowledge even to explain the topics with to a very basic level. In many cases the information is half-correct/imprecise or just blatantly wrong.
