Hilarious, Insightful, and Fun

I love listening to this podcast. I always end up laughing so hard and have to be careful to take drinks only during their breaks. In the midst of their hilarity they provide insight and wisdom to a variety of topics. I love that I can let my kiddos listen in and not worry about what they will hear. We have fun checking out some of the games and shows they talk about on the show and it’s just overall been a great addition to our family life.

Feels like I'm sitting in the car with a couple friends.

I've been listening for a few months now and this show usually finds its way into my queue as I'm picking up my kids from school. They are so personable and it's a bonus that it's clean and I don't have to put headphones in when the kids hop in the car. Thanks for loving nerds well!
