ADHD comedian Blaire Postman then joins the pod for a hilarious and insightful conversation about getting an adult ADHD diagnosis, starting to pursue her dreams "later in life," and capitalism's standards for "work success." Finally, what makes a good gift giver and what counts as a good gift? Plus, Melisa wants her goddamn Easter bunny!

Love them

Always so much fun to listen to with wonderful insights. I’ve listened to these two for years and it’s become my favourite podcast. Lots of different views and ideas as well as some heart pulling stories. 10/10 will always recommend (whenever I travel to live somewhere else in Canada I like to gave people sit down and listen to an episode, they love it every time)

Hard episode to listen to

Love the podcast and have been following you 2 for years. However, the latest episode with Cameron Esposito was difficult to listen to as it felt like Gaby was being interviewed instead of interviewing Cameron. There were many times that I felt like Cameron was just there hanging around, not being interacted with. I was very interested to hear Cameron speak and instead it turned into Gaby using everything they (Cameron) said as a jumping off point for their (Gaby’s) own problems and views. Why invite a guest on if you are only going to speak about yourself in reference to their life rather than listen to their story.

Best podcast of all time

I downloaded Apple podcasts just to leave this review, I have literally never reviewed another podcast. I don’t know what to do with myself now that I’m caught up on all podcast episodes. I did a solo trip in Mexico where I listened to these two the ENTIRE time, that was the most fun I’ve had by myself. The dynamic is unparalleled, the content is incredible, I am laughing out loud and learning so much. Just LOVE!!!! ❤️
