Insane and Fabulous

I love it - I love that you take it to the edge of the cliff and go right over.

I love when at the end of your show you offer some sort of apology for possibly taking it a bit too far but knowing that you will continue to do so.

I am so happy that I found your podcast. Guys thank you sincerely.
