First Time Listener

And I love y’all! The podcast was great. I’m so discouraged in people that like spread visceral and hate. No one should be attacked personally. Who are they??? GOD??? You guys are awesome and since I just found you, I can binge all weekend then sign up for you on Patreon! Keep up the great work and keep your accents and fresh attitudes, y’all got it going on!!!
