    Don’t Mess with Aisha Tyler’s Dad

And as a kid who loved to get lost in science books, there was no greater foil than her dad: a motorcycle-riding “juggernaut” named Jim. Aisha talks to Ruthie and Rory about how her upbringing shaped her incredible career, including her recent pivot to making artisanal booze. Bottom line: Jim Tyler ain’t nuthin’ to f**k with.

Just here for Rory

I wanted to love this, idc about Dad stuff, I just know Rory is incredibly funny as a stand up comedian. Unfortunately the chemistry between him and Ruthie fails, it seems like she’s trying too hard and is uncomfortable or just isn’t a good fit as a co-host on a comedy podcast.

Can’t wait for more

I love this podcast. I started listening because I like Rory but i actually really love the talk about dads - such a good topic with so many different perspectives and experiences. It’s been funny and interesting so far.

Rory is hilarious as always, but I love seeing a more intimate side. The co-host is great as well, she always has amazing points to add. Just binged all the episodes! Looking forward to more
