It’s just perfect
I’ve been listening to this podcast for I don’t know how many years, since the Mom on Pop days. Ironically it’s the only podcast my Mom and I can agree on to listen together. Their humor and report is truly unique.
Fun podcast. Not super serious, but they podcasters are smart.
Better than homemade Chex Mix!
I always whisper "Yesssss!" to myself when I see a new episode of Pop Mom appear in my podcast feed. Why? Because I know I'm going to laugh, and I know I'm going to learn something new when I listen. John and Bonney have such amazing podcast chemistry, and I especially love it when he teases her by twisting her words around and she reacts. It's hilarious! This podcast is A++ in my book!
