Jon Reep, the neighbor next door.

Jon really makes you feel like your listening to your favorite next door neighbor. Such a fresh feel in a podcast these days. Really invites you into his life of comedy and his beloved Hickory.

Country-ish Review

Jon,

I just recently started listening to podcasts and found you on here. I work for Penske Racing on the midnight shift and your podcast keeps me entertained all night. I started with a few Fried pods then went to the Country-ish when you changed it. I’m still on the episodes in 2020 but I’m up to September and absolutely love it. I knew you from the Dodge commercials and then you did the Penske Racing Christmas Party in 2017 in Mooresville, NC where I work and hilarious isn’t the word for it. You were great. So happy I started listening to podcast and found yours. Keep on reeping on and I hope popsicle and mimosa are well. Oh and by the way I’m a ginger and 6’3” of twisted steel and sex appeal😂 keep up the good work and oh I drive a Dodge Ram and that thing has a hemi in it. Bicycle.
