For a good time…

Great, relatable group of guys giving their daily opinions and thoughts on current events and more. Funny, smart and a great departure from the daily depressing politics. Found Hard Factor on IG a while back and have been hooked ever since. Highly recommend sending in the car on their Patreon for the extra content. Good stuff that you should check out.
HAGFD!

Love this pod.

And Half a Pack with Wes is still the best show on the internet, but I wish Mark would upgrade his gross studio setup.
