GREAT PODCAST

I love this podcast.
It’s funny and informative.

Also a great group of guests. These guys are creating really cool things brand-wise and content wise.

My fav podcast

Here for the brands, banter, and bops at the end!

Funny and Poignant

Great content. Wide scope, but not too wide to disappoint. Not exactly erotic, but fairly scintillating. I’ve heard Kev can deadlift 666 lbs.
