Hilarious and so well done!

I LOVE this show! I was literally laughing out loud in my car this morning. Andrew and Genevieve are #couplegoals and their chemistry and conversation is riveting. The quality is awesome - I view commercials in a totally different light since listening to this show and it makes commercials actually enjoyable!

Love their relationship and relatability as much or more than the actual content — though I like that too. I’d probably listen to them talk about anything Keep it up!!!

This show is a gift and a delight. I can’t think of a episode that hasn’t made me laugh at least once. Thank you, Genevieve and Andrew!
