Love your show!!

Your podcast is a breath of fresh air in a zany world. Always informative, educational and very often amusing. I enjoy appearances by your wonderful parents, and I look forward to the funny homemade singing commercials you guys do. Thanks for helping to make my day more enjoyable.

Thrilled

I have recently discovered podcasts as a pleasant way to spend time cutting the lawn and pushing snow. That being said I was thrilled to stumble upon your podcast. I have been a strong believer in your work, your “Dirty Jobs” series was and is my favourite television show. I listen to your podcasts and I laugh and think and I am genuinely grateful for your insight and compassion for others. Thank you for sharing.
