You’ll Be Surprised

Scanning through episode titles, I initially cherry-picked episodes that caught my interest. They were so good, that I’m now going through the backlog sequentially, and to my amazement, even the most mundane topics are fascinating and amusing when presented by these 2 erudite, hilarious and personable women. Who would’ve thought that time zones could be fascinating and humorous? And now I have a mnemonic for the 7 wonders of the ancient world—fabulous! And please keep gagging-it’s a riot every time.

Best Podcast Ever

I tell everyone about this podcast! This podcast is like sharing a glass of wine with your hilarious friends as they discuss topics. J&L are intelligent, witty and charming. They have made my commutes actually enjoyable (although I still listen to them every week now that don’t have to commute). I often find myself laughing in the car by myself. I can also say that I have frequently used the information I learned on here at trivia nights! I hope they come back soon. They are the highlight of the week!!
