Just Keeps Getting Better

Quarantine can’t stop these guys. They’ve re-invented themselves and now re-re-invented themselves — and they’re better than ever. Zach and Jess are your luminous stars of the show. Special shout outs go to the Family Band and especially Brett on the fret and the killer musical production. Thank you all for an amazing show!

Dang Dang Dang I Know...How Good This Podcast Is

Zach and Jess bring pure and genuine joy, not to mention impression comedic and improvisational chops, to every single episode. Moreover, they bring humanity to every single episode. This is obviously important when you're improvising a whole musical from scratch. But it's doubly impressive how they draw the best quality out of some guests who might not be the best improvisers or singers. They are human to the very core, and it make the comedy that much funnier and each episode much more enjoyable. I don't know how long they'll be willing to do this podcast, but I hope it's forever.

The World needs Woodbert merch

Loving the reinvented format while in quarantine. But the real question is: when will we see the Woodbert, the Wooden Frog shirt (presented by “What Sound does the Wooden Frog Make?”)?

Also I know have Jess to thank for my recent obsession with watching Gourmet Makes.
