Emmyao ,

Smart AND vulgar humor is the best

These two have a truly intelligent sense of humor and proving that smart and so vulgar is the perfect comedy combination. I’ve been listening for years and have reviewed in the past too, but still listening and still can’t wait for this show to be released.
