To those who are 9-10 writing critical comments about this podcast, I think you should let an adult decide if this is kid friendly or not. Sure there are some inappropriate things in the podcast, but I myself loved it and I think that there are MUCH worse things out there than the inappropriate parts of this podcast. If your parents don’t approve of the podcast I think you should simply stop listening to is and not scribble angry comments all over the comment section.

Please read if you are a kid: or a parent whose kid wants to listen to this.

I am still 9, but I decided to give this podcast one more chance
Because personally I actually LOVED IT and I listen and I think
Maybye this isn’t so bad after all and I mean sure there are a couple not-so-kid-appropriate-episodes but if you are a parent
Try Reading this hear me out all you have to do is look for the E in a grey box that means there is swearing 🤬 if it has no E read the description if it sounds okay you can try a bit alone if it is still
Okay try showing it to your child(ren) I think if you pick the right episode this can be a AMAZING, FUNNY, WIERD, AND WHY DO I LOVE THIS SO MUCH? Podcast so parents I know I am only 9,
But trust me I am smart. Parents let you’re kid read this part:
This is an amazing podcast!😀😀😀😀😀😀😀
