Love the back and forth

I really enjoyed the first few episodes. It is so fun to hear Jeff with his love of pop and Richie with his love of musicals go back and forth on different performances and entertainers. Their differing views and shared enthusiasm keep the episodes fun and entertaining. I can’t wait to listen to more!
