This podcast is essential for all smashers wether you are very competitive, not very competitive or not at all competitive. It is “funny and informative” I love this podcast. Keep making it and goodbye!

Amazing show, and here’s why you should watch it

This show is great, and there are 5 star reviews but here’s why I and so many others love it. The audio quality is on point and they talk about very interesting topics. The pacing could be a little faster in my opinion but I do love their personality and it doesn’t bother me too much. Look at the catalogue and choose a topic that interests you, there are tons of episode and tons of seasons.
