I really love this podcast

Like legit I wait for it to drop in my downloads every Wednesday! But also, I’m from London and I use the Underground every day and these trains are old, and I can’t hear the podcast over the train tracks so maybe it’s worth checking the sound levels? Not questioning the production at all, this is still my ride or die podcast, I tell everyone to listen to it. Ira and Louis are literally who I wanna be when I grow up!
