The Friends You You Didn’t Know You Had

This group of humans are something special. I’m not too big of a podcast guy but this one is IT. They know what they’re doing and you won’t regret hitting play.

You are engulfed in a convo/topic that makes you think and wonder. Ross and his guests, despite being in a studio probably far from where you are listening from, have this dynamic that make you feel like you’re there with them.

I like to listen to them on a nice walk and before you you know, you’ve walked miles.

Please give them a listen, a follow, and a review

A podcast you can talk to

I like the podcast… I also like if you listen to it while drunk and message then your thoughts then they always answer…. That’s what I look for in a podcast

Re Cretino ,

Great discussions about randomness

I subscribe to/follow quite a few podcasts to get me through workouts, commutes, or just random lulls in the day, and have done so regularly since 2005.

During those years I have continually looked for new entertaining sources of knowledge and Smells Like Humans is a wonderful discovery in a time when EVERYONE started their own podcast (stay tuned for my new podcast coming soon).

This is the sphincter tincture I didn’t know I needed. Just the right length to stay interesting, with topics as variable as humans and their various smells… Bonus points for broadcasting out of PDX.
