MmmHmmBacon ,

Great fun!

KKN is breezy, informative and entertaining. Alex and Anthony have a great conversational authenticity and their production values are first-rate. Great stuff, guys. Subbed👍

BenKilloy ,

Love it

Had the opportunity to meet them in person on a bus back from a party and they were so engaging and thoughtful in the conversation and love this idea and what they bring.

DigitalSquirrel ,

It's become part of my weekly routine...

Most weekends I find myself listening to the weeks podcast in the car. It's the perfect length for my drive to work and a nice entertaining way to occupy the time. A bonus that often time my teenagers are in the car with me and I find them enjoying it as much as I do.
