Customer ReviewsSee All
I enjoy this podcast. Yes there is lack of research but I enjoy listening to it because reminds me of my friends and I just chatting about something. They’re funny and have good chemistry.
Could be so much better
I appreciate the effort a podcast takes ,so thank you for doing this, but a little more research would be awesome.
Your personalities are great - the info was a little shaky in a few episodes.
Topics they choose are interesting but the delivery is below mediocre. The majority of their podcast is focused on them and not the subject matter. When on topic a lack of research is obvious.
