Episode 138 outro

Long time listener (actually, just a few months). Have no idea what they talk about sometimes but I busted a gut laughing at Jonathan sing out of this episode. Deserves all the stars.

∞ STICKS!

Thanks for the podcast.

I know a lot of people said that, by it’s really ACTUALLY much nicer to relax while listening to informal rumblings about life with some real gold bars of insight in between than to to boring, formal, politcorrect crap that feels like a class in college or something (Yeah, hate that InVision podcast 😅).

You are in my top 3 podcasts, and I actually listen to 25 regularly. :0

Also, loved the #buysprint :)
