I love the show and the dynamic of the 3
I’m not sure what is the deal with all the Ash hate. I think the three of you have such good chemistry together and I truly enjoy the show. And I do feel like it’s always been better when there is a female perspective as a counterbalance. Ashley you are doing great keep up the awesome work. F*ck all those haters!
Haven’t listened in a year or more, finally unsubscribed. When I did try again I couldn’t get past 5 minutes. They’re all really annoying in how cool/smart they think they are.
Figured out your problem. Big D is a tiresome caricature. Getting rid of him would make your cast much more listenable. Your best casts exclude his swearing and fake stories. -America
