Night time pod
You guys make the list! Love the pod!
Great job guys, keep up the good work!
Hilarious and easy going banter
I don’t really know anything about sports and don’t really care for them but this pod makes me laugh and is genuinely interesting so I don’t even skip through the parts about basketball (and it gives me something to impress my boyfriend with). Topics are always “current” and keep ya in the loop about what’s happening. I’ve even come to prefer the no-interview random babble pods. Highly recommend!
