Such great banter!!

I’ve been listen to Katie and liv for a few episodes now and I have to admit that im officially hooked! The two hosts have great chemistry with one another along insightful and passionate views on Canadian culture and history. What ive come to enjoy is their interactions with guests on their podcast, from actors such as Dalmar Abuzeid to athletes like Sami Jo Small their variety of guests keep me coming back for more.
