Great chemistry for a friendly homework show.

Hosts Mark and Jon check in with each other and at the end of each episode assign homework for them to do that week, like take an improv class or make sourdough bread or finish coding a website.

It’s a great reminder and encouragement to get through the little things that make life better.

They also crack jokes in their beautiful British accents. So. Winning.
