The best.

The most relatable, hilarious podcast. I spend a lot of time laughing out loud at Shane & Alex’s banter (and Shane’s jokes).

tlold ,

Great listen

Their conversations make you think but it’s an easy listen at the same time. Love following this family on Instagram and through their podcast.

The BEST podcast for a new mom !

Alex and Shane are the most genuine humans ever and it shows in their podcast. It’s real, hilarious and educational at the same time. As a new mom, their unreal guests provide me a lot of value and the conversations are definitely worth listening too - it’s always feels like a natural convo between best friends. I look forward to the new episode every single week. Love you both and keep those episodes coming !! Xo CSA
