This show is funny and emotionally comforting

It’s also smart. But, I’m only saying that for the people who make it because it matters to them.

What’s special to me is the ecosystem of dignity, respect, and fun comprising the network, the listeners, the podcast team, and all the nuances between them.

Listen for their relationships; it’s why you listen to podcasts.

Delight!

John Hodgman and Jesse Thorn have such a great chemistry and play off each others wit perfectly. If you’re into NY/New England references, good west coast food and clothing advice, and who is TECHNICALLY right, this is the podcast for you!

No to Linda Holmes.

Linda Holmes is a super opinionated individual that I can’t stand. She is so set in her opinions. She is the reason I quit listening to Pop Culture Happy Hour. She is a snot.
