Love this, love the show!

It’s great listening to all the behind the scenes stories episode by episode— though I do recommend that a new listener finish watching the show if they haven’t already before starting the podcast ! I’m only half way through the existing episodes, but I’m excited to catch up and get to hear NEW content (the proposal episode especially!)

Great theme song!

Fun podcast with a hilarious theme song. So fitting to the series!

Light and Fun!

I loved Rob and Alan AND I love Greg and Jim! This podcast has been delightful to listen to while I’m up in the wee hours feeding my newborn baby! I love the insight from the guests and I love revisiting each episode with Jim and Greg’s added nuggets. I’m a huge fan.
