GroovyPie ,

Wonderfully Funny

Glad it’s back. I missed it.

Kyle Francis Clarke ,

Terrific fun and escapism

What started off as something I had a casual interest in has not got me fully invested in the characters. I was initially skeptical about the amount of material but each episode flies by and often has me laughing out loud as it accompanies me on my runs

YGN_oz ,

Hilarious and probably accurate

Found this the other day, can’t stop listening.
