It Cleanses My Soul

So refereshing to listen to a “relatively normal” albeit famous couple deal with ordinary life occurrences. Steve’s story about “removing the boulder that would not flush” was hilarious. I celebrate you and your families normality and I routinely find my weekly “quiet space” when I listen to you guys. Please keep doing this show.
