Big fan of Wisecrack, delighted to find this podcast

Two episodes deep on one car ride as I am flying through podcasts. Really happy to get more insightful commentary from the people who make some of my favorite Youtube videos. The lens in which things are explained is extremely well done and I am eager to listen to more. I would highly recommend this podcast.
