I listen every week

Love this podcast. Might want to add a caveat that the deceased man’s name is George Floyd, not Greg

Wood Woody ,

Okay!

I’ve been listening to a couple of her podcasts and all she’s talking about is Tramp & Obama. Like, oh my GOSH! Alright! We know you love Obama we all do.. & we know you despise Trump, we all do. What other topics can you grace us with?

Jessica hearts reviews! ,
