Love it even late to the party

You two are a good mix of smart and into interesting topics without being above some good royal family gossip.

I am a huge Challenge fan (and a huge fan of Sarah and her approach to the challenge and miss the good ‘ol days). So this is a nice mix of relevant topics and am loving dipping back into the archive episodes to hear about the challenge back in the day.
