‘tis good stuff.

Davidddddddddddddddddd ,

Great show

Can’t believe I haven’t rated before but always a pleasure to have these guys in my ears!

TimmyDubya ,

Just 'wow'.

Awesome to hear some smart people talking about some occasionally serious topics, supported by a wealth of pop-knowledge, with some tunes thrown in for measure.
I just listened to the 'heavy' episode; amazing language used to clarify and share some topics that should be closer (in conversation) to all of us. Keep it up, guys!
