Customer Reviews

GaryJohnSenior ,

Can’t stop Wizzing and/or Bruising.

I am finally leaving a review... I love this podcast. Simple. Having rinsed LPOTL episodes several times of the years it was time to try something new. Jake and Holden give great attention to detail and bring a wonderful sense of humour to the proceedings. Everything in nerd culture is covered and I have been guided to new things thanks to their show. Love it and love you. x

Such an easy listen

I've listened to LPOTL for a while now and when they gave this show a shout out I thought I'd check it out. I now cant wait for each new episode to come out and love listening on my way to work, at work, at home just everywhere! This is definitely the one podcast I've recommended the most to friends as it's so easy to pick a topic you like and then you're hooked. Even topics I'm not as interested in I'll still tune in as the hosts could make anything both interesting and hilarious!

Would definitely strongly recommend!
