Five stars 💗

This is such a wonderful and wholesome podcast. The ‘wonder twins’ of podcasting could not be cuter, funnier, nor more honest in telling the community and onlookers about the lives of minorities and people who don’t have a voice in the USA right now. I love and recommend this podcast to any and everyone who loves comedy, honesty, and pop-culture.
