What a show!!!
I was tuned on to this podcast by a friend and was hooked after episode 1. The soothing calm demeanor of J whole discussing topics ranging from comedy to tragedy is amazing. I binged to catch up and listened to the 26 episodes in about 3 weeks. I can say I enjoyed some episodes more than others but it was solely based on subject matter and my personal interests. I can also say I have learned more in the last 3 weeks than in the last 3 years. Thank you to J, his crew and each and every guest he has had on. I can't wait to hear what is coming next!!
My new favorite podcast!!!
Absolutely fantastic podcast!!! Amazing guests and J is wonderful to listen to! I definitely recommend!
