Give it a listen

These guys have a chat about a variety of topics and their prospectives are interesting. If you like making give this pod a try. I promise Grant will keep you entertained.

Since Morley has to read in my New Jersey accent I can almost guarantee he will screw up the accent and do some over done tv style Jersey accent that is clearly Staten Island but let’s see how he does. Would be funny to hear Grant and Adam give their version of the accents, but it would only let me leave a 5 star review so I’ll add the other two here. ⭐️⭐️. Anyway good luck, and keep up the good work.

Always a good listen

Great podcast! Information, interesting and relevant! I always enjoy the weekly topics, and especially the clampamendations! Please read this review on the show in a Midwestern Ohio accent!

Brent Jarvis ,

Don’t get fooled

These guys are freakin hilarious and if you’re expecting to have adult relations with them right off the bat… give it 12 months! Don’t be fooled that you’re not going to be entertained. They speak the words that so many of us are trying to say but just can’t get it out in words. I’m so happy I was able to find this podcast and if you’re wondering if it worth a listen do not hesitate. I’m impressed and the entertainment is enough to become a Patreon for them. Money well spent on hours of entertainment and they really do take time out of their lives to brig this podcast to us. Keep up the amazing work guys!
