Wonderful!

I am always laughing so hard at these. This is my current depression medicine (I use comedy to manage along with therapy), and I listen all the time. I also love the not so funny stories lightly dispersed within. This show makes me want to move to Canada (sorry Canadians, you knew we’d all want to move there after Trump). Keep up the amazing work, and thank you so much!
