So happy about this Podcast!

Kristin and Steven reuniting is everything. They made Laguna Beach the fire show that it was and still is. So nostalgic hearing the two of them talk about the old times and still have that fun banter they always had. ❤️

Great minus the Ads

My inner teenager is dying of excitement from the nostalgia. The podcast content is great but the ads are WAY to long - I feel like it’s 60% content and 40% ads which is just not right.

Also I love that Kristin is so honest and refreshing. I wish Stephen would stop trying to defend his actions so much - like ON EVERY EPISODE. You stated your case already that you weren’t this player that MTV made you out to be. We get it. We don’t need to spend 5 mins in each episode going over it again. Especially when the episode is already so short after ads.

Other than the ad length and defensive Stephen, everything else is SO MUCH FUN! I genuinely wait the whole week for the next episode. Can’t wait for next weeks Cabo episode :)

Fun and interesting

What a great throwback! So fun to listen to, but when they try to use ‘clutch’ it’s cringy.
