It’s been too long!

I figured, since I’m already on the page looking at the date of the latest drop, I can drop a review. This is one of my favorite podcasts, it delivered me through the pandemic and some truly terrible overnight shifts. I got my best friend listening as well, and we would compare notes about the latest episodes as well as on our own lives and mental health. I especially miss Ollie’s understated sense of humor, but Geoff is good, too. Please come back soon— but take your time and NO PRESSURE!

Much love from a niche podcast aficionado.

The best boys

George and Ollie always make me laugh, but most importantly they remind me that it’s okay to openly discuss my struggles with mental health with friends and family. I appreciate how vulnerable they both get with a mix of always bringing the vibes way back up.
