Awkward

I’m almost reluctant to listen to this on my commute because I’m constantly laughing and making other people on the train uncomfortable

Perfect timing

You guys are great! However recently two of your shows have struck a nerve. In August 2020 I cut off half of my left index finger, off-off, no cooler would’ve saved it. It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster. But just recently I’ve been less horrified and somewhat able to laugh about it. Then TWO of your episode of Conan needs a fan went into great detail about cut off fingers!! Had this been 6 months ago I probably would’ve burst into tears but now, I find myself laughing about it! So I guess.. thank you?
