Firsthand

Love the creativity involved in this podcast! I am laughing out loud on my morning walks with Firsthand.

Very funny

I love when I find new podcasts that you can re-listen to over and over again. Hosts are great and guests are hilarious. Only wish it came out year round!!

Funnier than it is historical!

This podcast sounds like what I, as a high school student, hoped my favorite teachers talked like when they drank together. Now that I am a high school teacher I know better and still wish my colleagues sounded like this when they got drunk.
