Great podcast!!

Listening all the way from Augusta, GA. The discussions are current and never dull. The conversations between the hosts doesn’t sound forced. The sound quality is great. It seems like you two are in the same room. I listen when I want to catch up on what the young people are doing and thinking, lol. Keep up the good work! ACN-W

Something for everyone!

I just started listening to SLBNQ podcast but I have found it to be entertaining and quite educational! There is a great balance of pop culture/celebrity gossip, politics and national news that I appreciate.
Ki and Forrest are both great and they each bring something different to the podcast that sets this podcast apart from all the rest. This podcast will definitely keep you entertained whether you are at home relaxing or in the car making your way to work. Have a listen you won’t be disappointed!
