Hunter Nigro/ Greenidge ,

hehe

i’m the guy in the start of the last video good job

Dannerzz ,

Amazing

This is literally the podcast I was hoping would exist after watching Mrs America!!!!

todd9999999 ,

Know Kaitlyn from her writing, and apparently she’s a great radio host as well

A high-quality pod about a show my partner and I are enjoying a lot. It’s a good program to be broken down, there’s a lot of worthwhile tangents to get into. Anyway I definitely recommend this one. Pumped for next ep!
