Comedian does comedy

Funny enough I even listen to the adds.

Still haven’t seen the special, it won’t fit in a Munchy Mug.

Funny & Relatable

All of the funny and not so funny family stories Dustin and Mel talk about in these episodes are both so relatable and make me feel better about our own family. February is for fighting has been a favorites series of mine again because it makes me feel better about our own fights and I can totally relate specifically to Mel. I think Mel needs to bring out some stories of how Dustin was the one to blame in a fight to help even things out lol. My husband and I have enjoyed listening to several episodes together. Thanks for the laughs! I recommend this podcast to everyone, especially families :)
