esteemudge ,

I am a pickyyyyy podcast listener

I can only listen to morbid and TGOG but I’m caught up on both so I decided to try this one and omgggg say hello to my 3rd favorite pod!!!! I seriously laugh out loud with them. Their giggles are so contagious. I crack up every time they say “oh my gwod”. Their relationship is adorable and I’m so glad I gave it a try!!!

Music<3rr ,

Hilariously dark

This is a great new podcast- these two have excellent chemistry and have me laughing every time I tune in. I learn something new, I have enjoyed hearing new cases and macabre stories. I feel like they are well versed In related terminology and have done their homework! Thank you for a new kind of podcast in my favorite genre!
