Truly uplifting fun podcast

Joy!

Beautiful and funny voices coming from beautiful and funny people! That last part I can’t confirm cuz it’s a podcast coming from my phone, I am not sure what actually generates these voices. It could be two beautiful and funny slices of lactose intolerant Chicago style deep-dish pizzas. I don’t know. If there’s a pizza episode, I haven’t gotten there yet. Still, I wasn’t a podcast person before, and now I’m listening a lil every day, catching up on my favorite topics. Thanks for the giggles and fun and connection, Josh and Paula!
