Keep asking Tig!!

This podcast is so much fun. Thanks Tig for the laughs and also the actual care you put into answering listeners questions. You never shame them or make it sound dumb. You and your guest host engage and have a good time doing so. It’s the perfect mix of both. I’m listening!

I Stalk Tig

I’m so happy to find this podcast. I literally stalk tag with my DVR every week and check out anything and everything that she may be on. This podcast is laugh out loud funny

Bix the cat ,

Tig is my spirit animal

No other creature on God’s green Earth makes me laugh as hard as Tig. But I would never ask her for advice.
