Two brilliant friends talking about the maddest stuff imaginable

This podcast absolutely makes my week and Mondays don’t feel right without these two delving into the weirdest, most wonderfully bizarre things possible. Sacred and profane, JoAG had covered so many topics in an informative, sensitive and progressive way that I’ve cried with laughter and …the sad way (?)too. Instantly likeable, can’t recommend it enough

Good dirty fun

These two are great hosts. They are still learning and it’s great to see them evolve from episode 1 to date…

I love a podcast with personality which the two hosts have, a wide range of topics are covered and equally they someone’s go off topic which is also a lot of fun.

If you need something entertaining to listen to for an hour you can’t really go wrong here!
