Hilarious Show

This podcast always makes me laugh and brings a smile to my face. Highly recommend. My favorite comedy show. I love when they play different board games, and the conversations about food are delightful.

Great show!

There was a medieval sword, still sharp, found recently in a sewer in The Netherlands. There can be only one!

Chill and Fun

The conversations are hilarious. The topics are nerdy but respectful. At the end of the day this show provides a lot of low key chill fun. A great escape from all the drama of politics.
