Love your podcast!!!
No matter how deep or shallow the conversation is iam always hooked. Thank you! we need all the distraction we can get after the traumatic last year we had. Thanks guys ⭐️👏🙏💙
This show was recommended to me so I gave it a listen .
The hosts ( of that’s what you can call them ) are veritably ingenuine towards their guests .
Quite uncomfortable to listen to the awkwardness .
I have to acknowledge my nonplussed by then having advertisers .
