What an awesome duo!

Just found out your podcast, I already follow you on YouTube and I’m super excited to know that you have a podcast too. So cool to get to know more about you.

Your content is super interesting and you two together… #goal. What a genuine, fun, loving, relationship you have. Keep it up.

Love sent from your French neighbour in QC.

The Perfect Balance

I love this podcast! The subjects are incredibly interesting and the hosts make it such a delight to listen to! I think it’s one of only 3 or 4 podcasts that I have listened to in its entirety from its conception to its latest. Excellent production quality and Greg and Mitch are INCREDIBLY talented all around!

The Monarchy Episode

So why make an episode about something that you guys know very little about and all the jokes being that Greg knows nothing about the subject, has strong opinions about things he’s uninformed about and talk about a dramatized show. Like if you have an opinion about Republicanism in Canada or the Constitution or even the sociocultural aspect that might have been useful but just a full segment about willfully ignorant tangents made for your worst episode
