This has been my favorite podcast for a long time. It’s a joy to hear people laugh and have fun, with very wholesome advice from John & Jesse. It’s truly a tonic for all the bad news out there.
After listening for a long time, it’s clear to me that John Hodgman is the star, he takes the show to the next level. Sadly it would be much better with a different bailiff though. The regular bailiff is just not fun to listen to.
Great stuff! Seriously funny
