I’m here this niche

I am only just finding this!!! What they do is incredible. I love their chemistry, wit, intelligence, and unhinged ability to bring joy in this specific unique way. It takes a lot of knowledge and hard work to do what they do effortlessly.

I wish I knew about pod this years ago

This podcast is such a gem. I have a good time every time. Even though I only found Zach and Jess (and Scott and Dana and Brett) recently boy howdy do I have a backlog full of joy and fun guests to work through with this pod!
While they’re not releasing every week like they did 2017-2023 we still get plenty of new content at less regular intervals that I’m eagerly looking forward to (particularly the live shows!).
I’m a new(ish) sleepy baby (anyone wondering why I’m a sleepy baby - it’s from Episode 10 with Will Hines) and I hope anyone who reads this review and isn’t already a fan becomes a sleepy baby real soon!

Tons of fun

Zach, Jess and Scott are absolute treasures. Every episode has been a blast so far (on episode 48).
