A good entertainment

I like listening to this show on a weekly basis. It’s nice to just hear two string personality coming along and voice their opinions. I like the sense of humor that each host brings in.

Stephanie was just too loud. I had to pause after 5 minutes and skip the show. She has very clear opinions which is nice but she needs to calm down

Entertaining and informative!

Like Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner, The laughs are never far when these two get together.I also find the exploring of media, tech, politics, and business to be very informative.These are two brilliant people, but they don’t hit you over the head with their intelligence; they just roll along with their jibes at each other, and we get to come along for the ride!

Love love love!

I’ve recently begun listening and now can’t go a day without it. They blend politics and technology brilliantly. I love that Scott and Kara don’t agree on everything but both have great insight to provide. The two of them together make this show. Keep doing what you’re doing. Thank you!
