Love hearing the perspectives and the marriage of my two favorite things, music and comedy. These two categories of life have gotten me through some rough times and I enjoy their friendly banter and their unique vantage points. Love it!
Why did you stop
I really enjoyed your show the guests were very good. You guys got better aa
Mixes two of my favorite subjects
Happy to stumble upon a podcast that combines two of my favorite things - music and stand up comedy. I wasn’t familiar with Raelynn’s music (cool upbeat country with sort of a 90’s alternative rock feel) until I saw her on The Honeydew with Ryan Sickler - one of my other favorite storytelling podcasts. She and J.B. are both knowledgeable and relatable, and have a nice laid back vibe. Would love to see Theo Von, Ali Macofsky, Jeremiah Watkins, Bobby Lee, or Ron Funches appear at some point.
