Behold

The purest distillation of podcast essence. Jo masterfully rides the line between chuckle-worthy absurdity and pure mind-boggling chaos while Manolo provides the perfect counterbalance to her efforts. Meanwhile, the callers know the score and are down to get dirty. If you haven’t listened to this podcast then be warned that what you are about to witness will leave you changed forever. And before you thank me for the recommendation, no you thank you.

Fun but Manolo makes way too many body sounds

When they play good games it’s fun when they slog through the terrible games, there is little enthusiasm and I can’t even tell if I’m still awake or alive. So yeah I listen every week but wish the terrible games were rejected.

Let me be clear, I do not dislike Manolo.

Manolo takes drinks and you hear him swallow. It’s not nice to hear but is it as bad as hearing someone’s stomach growl? I keep hearing it.

He’s also bad at playing the games on the show.

Funny & Wholesome

I discovered this show recently and I’ve been listening to every episode from the beginning. It’s funny, wholesome, and it never fails to make me smile. Jo and Manolo are hilarious together, and I enjoy the way they engage with their guests. This is one of my favorite podcasts!
