Playful and droll

The writing and narration in this podcast is amazing. It's quirky, violent, funny, and full of great twists and absurd plots. I was so incredibly excited when a new season popped up on my feed, and I can't wait until they release more! I made myself wait a week between listening to savor them. Excellent podcast!!

Best podcast ever.

I actually mean that. So entertaining, so funny, yet so true!!!!!
Each episode is a gem. And very easily consumed, I don’t think any are even 30 minutes long.
To the creators: I assume you have other, surely better paying, jobs. But PLEASE make a season 3! (And 4, and 5.....)
This is one of the (few) things that the Internet has made possible which makes life more enjoyable. Please don’t stop.
