Highlight of my week

PUTJ is truly a highlight of my week! Love Miel, Rob Moose, and all the other lovely guests. I love how hilarious Miel is in addition to her musical background. 10/10

Also Miel’s new album is *chef’s kiss*

Used to be the best

Before Demi left I loved this podcast. I’d wake up early Thursdays so excited to listen. Since he left, I can’t help but feel Miel isn’t that into it, which makes it less fun to listen to. Chris seems like he doesn’t like the concept of the podcast and uses any excuse to get off topic and not talk about the songs. Maybe it’s time to stop, develop another podcast idea you can be more passionate about
