Smooth show titles and segues

It’s not everyday that you get to hear tech in the same convo as 90s deep dives, Taylor Swift, and manic random ADHD tangents. Brett and Christina, along with the occasional guest, bring you along for a relaxing and strange conversation. Sit back, preferably tired, and enjoy the ride 👍🏼

Feels like home

I look forward to Overtired every week because listening to Brett and Christina makes my ADHD brain feel it's at peace because the podcast sounds like my brain. It is absolutely the most comfortable I feel each week.
