This is my go-to podcast for a belly laugh.

Perfect podcast

Nick and Leah are just too funny. I find myself laughing out loud on the subway on my commute. I’m sure that’s an etiquette violation but hopefully they’ll forgive me. Highly recommend this delightful and informative podcast!

Absolutely love these two! I’m a teacher and I have morning crossing duty—meaning I have to stand on the street corner for thirty minutes before school starts helping kids cross the street. Was incredibly boring until I discovered my new friends Leah and Nick! Now I’m happily entertained. And I always learn something!
