Never miss a show!

Pre-pandemic, during pandemic, post-pandemic- hearing the familiar doorbell and pleasant banter and decidedly positive voices of (especially)Ophira and Jonathon is absolutely what I look forward to as my end-of-the-workweek treat. Thank you for being a constant in an inconstant time.
