the impersonation was the BEST THING EVER
Bring back Travis
I’m sorry, this was once my favorite podcast. I have even been to two live tapings. However, it’s gotten unbearably twee, self-referential, and frankly, insufferable.
The “characters” on the show are categorically bad, aside from the dude who does the Bernie Sanders impression.
Left Wing propaganda pervades our society’s soul, and these liberal bigots take it too far.
