Love, love, love! Do yourself a favor and subscribe to this podcast! The hosts are incredibly passionate and time flies while listening! Can’t wait for more!
Entertaining, but a the hosts are not qualified to comment on law and crime
Two armchair politicians repeating fake news liberal media, obviously they’ve never dealt with offenders and the system. Actually deal with crime and criminals then maybe you’re qualified to talk about it.
I love this concept, but love the chemistry between Matt and Enn even more. I could listen to them talk about literally anything and would laugh my head off.
