More Corbin Smith!

Every episode is entertaining and educational but I found Corbin Smith hilarious on today’s episode, Novax Djokovic. “Dog Nut Juice?” You can’t do better than that.

Keep it up, Sean and co.

PS I loved the 2021 song!

LppCo ,

LOVE the 2021 Song!!

I didn’t think a review of 2021 possibly be enjoyable, but you did it!! Great song, consistently excellent podcast, thank you!!

jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay n ,

Commercials are...the infuriating kind 😏

I’m actually so tired of the commercials they choose to add?? I understand they’re necessary and I’m not complaining abt free podcasts...however do they all need to be abt Therapy or Rape? Why every 3 minutes do I need to here the same commercial for a podcast about assault it’s abrasive and weird.
