Can’t be beat

This is absolutely the most hilarious and fantastic podcast. This is my go to when I need a pick me up. I Love Laci.

Misstnw ,

Caricature-ish

I tried to get and stay interested in this podcast after it was highly recommended by a well known instagram account. I found it difficult to stay interested and listen as the host and guests seemed to be putting on and very caricature-ish and exaggerated. It was just too much and felt inauthentic.

Information madding ,

So Funny!

Lacey somehow makes this show fun every episode. She brings out the best in her guests, cuts to the quick of all these wild cons, and always brings the comedy. Plus, somehow teaches about how to not be a mark.
