    Go fig… it’s Kristen Wiig!

Welcome to SmartWiig; now go fill your pool with Skittles.

Jenny Slate

This episode was truly the funniest one so far.

Haters Gon’ Hate

People criticizing the hosts haven’t considered that this is just solid chemistry between three friends that turned into a podcast. People criticizing their guest choices haven’t realized that not everyone can say yes to being there. (Plus how in touch do you think three middle aged white guys are with a younger generations’ desired guest list?) Regardless, each host offers a fun role that effortlessly balances the others. You can feel their love for each other while laughing along the same way you do when you riff with your friends.

Show Should Be Called Smartasses…I LOVE IT!

This show is so great and probably the best podcast out there!!! These three guys are so funny and make me laugh throughout each and every episode. They cheer me up when they poke (good) fun at each other, but you can tell they are really great buds with true friendships. Thank you all for making a tired worn out attorney chuckle on the regular.

Here’s an idea…do an episode with your SOs (significant others). I think it would be a hoot.

Love you boys!
