A True Delight

I love everything about this show. The concept of people talking in depth about the people they appreciate, and why, is wholesome and uplifting in a way I don't think I realized I needed. This is one of my go-to shows when I need to bask in something positive.

A Happy Place

Honey Roast is one of the few podcasts out there where you're guranteed to find joy and love and good vibes. Each episode is one person talking about the respect and love and warmth they feel for another artist - be they writer, actor, or other - and it is just so enjoyable to listen to. Tess, creator and host of the show, then turns it around and "honey roasts" the guest on the show talking about how much they love and respect their work. It's a show I look forward to with every episode, not just for discovering new shows, but just to hear people say wonderful things about others. It just puts a big smile on my face every time!

Amazing!!!!!!!

This show is super good, and is one of my go-to hope punk shows for when I need a good pick me up, or a good happy cry. A+, 10/10, would recommend
