Great to see you back.
Glad to see you are back. Very entertaining as always, well, when you stay away from the politics, which is most of the time. Hoping for a quick recovery on all this as I would love to see one of the live shows. Hang in there.
Love these guys!
Funny in so many different ways.
This podcast is awesome! It has great banter and tangents and feels so much like a conversation I’d have with friends. It was awesome that they have included a few small scenes as a part of this since, unfortunately, I have never been able to make a U.R. live show. I look forward to more and am excited for wherever this podcast is headed.
