Hickory native makes it big in comedy

Just made my morning at 2:30 am to find your podcasts. As many others riding this Covid wave we all need to laugh out loud much more these days.

Humor and Substance

This show has thoughtful substance (not powdery white) woven through stories of humor and life. Real people gathered around social media and recording equipment ...just like our ancestors.

Great Podcast

Been a fan of Jon’s since the Hemi commercials. I think it was a ginger thing. I started at the first episode and listened to all of then and rewatched Rodney and forgot how much I loved the show. Great segments, really enjoy “Member Me!?!” I’d call in with my yearbooks but all I have are old AOL Instant Messenger Screen names. The Alan Jackson is a gentlemen, Stamos bring the looks, Elliot and Isaiah bring the class, and Sebastians funny but his long forearms kinda freak me out!
Keep up the great work!
