Yo! #Novascotiastrong twice in a row! 🦞🦞 First we take over the First Take review post, next we take over the world! Wahaha

Love the show

Always great to have an advocate for our community but you over play your hand. If I find it annoying, the folks you’re trying to reach must find it nauseating. Stop being a character, and go back to being the ambassador we know you to be with character.

Some feedback

I love listening to the podcast…. Don’t really like to hear Max though. Props to First Take Her Take but I don’t want to listen to the things that those ladies are talking about. I just want to hear sports not their personal lives etc. These ladies should have their own show and not joined with First Take.
