Easy five stars

I’ve only been listening to WGG for a day now and I’m already hooked! I’ve listened to three podcasts and I love how long it actually takes for you guys to actually start talking about the topic lol! I hate listening to music and podcast usually bore me but this is my only exception! Easiest five stars ever!!!

Bognibbly ,

Must listen podcast for only the coolest people.

I’ve been listening to WGG since day one and every week you remind me how important reviews are and every week I don’t take your advice and leave a review. Well i can now proudly say I have left my review. Only the coolest people listen to the coolest podcast around made by the coolest ladies in the biz.

Annoyingly insipid

The hosts tend to go on about themselves versus the hames itself. Such a turn off. Skip.
