Learning so much! ,

Keep it up!

Larry, you are such a great host! Thank you for being such an incredible ally.

Hunter X Chelsea ,

I love this podcast <3

I’m a person who really can’t stand gender stereotypes. I really hope you guys don’t get too much criticism for being straight cis white men. I don’t think that should matter. I love that you are using your privilege to point out and address the different issues in our society and giving a platform for people who do struggle with these issues a place to speak.
Thank you
