Great podcast

Long time listener and primo.

I love Katie and Jesse

I love the great repartee between Katie and Jesse. It almost doesn’t matter what they’re talking about, they make every subject interesting and fun.

Don’t waste your time.

I live in Oak Park and someone suggested the recent episode so I listened. I’ve now lost respect for that someone.

If you dig people who think they AREN’T racist and think they ARE funny but are wrong about both, this is the podcast for you.

I wish cancel culture existed so someone could put these two out of their self-absorbed misery.
