Worked for me

As a mom of two gays and a nongay, with early indoctrination as conservative Christian, and subsequently being raised by the 12 step program, Dan and James and all their ups and downs and all over the places, along with their exceptional guests, have helped me laugh, gain perspective and make sense of it all. THANKS.

Inclusive

I appreciate listening to this podcast. It is great how they enjoy talking with each other. And they don’t take themselves too seriously.

Jillybrews ,

Wonderful dynamic

I love listening to these guys basically fighting with each other. It always makes me laugh or smile.
