Gift Horse rules

Such a perfect and simple concept for a show, and executed so well—Mike and Tracy are funny and fun to listen to, and there’s a sweetness running through every episode that’s quite infectious. I only recently started listening and am hooked. Also, the theme song is fire.

Deceptively brilliant premise

How else do you know if you know someone/something? This is a sweet and entertaining show. It’s also funny.
