My all time fav podcast

Mitch’s hand is the last one me and my wife shook before Coronavirus ended hand shaking forever. Great live show in Vancouver, we got Wolly & Irma and Dream Mitchy shirts too! Also too, Wigez intros have taught me countless dumb facts. Five forks!

5 forks!

The perfect balance of humour and sincerity, this podcast has been going strong for years without dropping in quality and freshness. Munch Madness 2020 has been keeping me sane!

It’s good!

I can’t explain this show but 3 episodes and you’re hooked.
