Like Super Nice

Loving it so far. Format is working a treat for me, and glad to see that the pair of you don’t agree on stuff, both having valid points to express. 🌺 Don't ever drop the wheather report, it's all part of my weekly update on life.

Good show, but Frederique

It's a good show. However, I deducted stars since Frederique swears way too much. I don't mind the occasional profanity, but she usually goes overboard every episode. Please consider bringing it down a few notches.

Loving the Show / Ready for "Chapter 2"

I'm only 2 episodes in, but I love the podcast so far. I noticed the new episodes and reference to a format change, but I'm catching up first. Keep up the good work Owen!
