Subtly Hilarious and Wickedly Informative

I can't get enough of this show, Sean and Co. provide so much information through their interviews and presentation of material -- plus half the time I'm laughing at the snark 🙌

MY DAILY WARMUP! 20/10!

I love love love this show! I listen to it every morning while getting ready for work and it gives me a GREAT slice of info to start my day and also puts me in a good mood (you guys make me literally lol sometimes). But most importantly, I think you guys pick and choose the BEST guests and experts to interview and they always give a well-rounded, well-informed opinion on serious topics that I couldn’t wrap my head around before. Anyway, love your show, I’d love to come to a live taping one day in DC!
