Like Waiting for Godot if it was funny.

If you like surreal, slow burning, dark comedy with excellent production values then this podcast is worth your time. The two main performers have great chemistry and world building skills. I can always rely on them to transport me to someplace weird and entertaining. Keep these episodes coming!
