HT Cubes ,

this is my favourite podcast

you dont upload too often but when you do i always love the episode there isn’t any episodes that i dont like

Da funny guy ,

I love this podcast!

I was already a huge fan of colourful pockets, but when I found out about the podcast I had to listen to it! It’s hilarious but at the same time informative! Can you talk about Derpy Cuber’s 5.49 squan wr?
