Amazing

What a perfect show! The only thing I can think to suggest is that there’s a glaring lack of Chuck and Larry discourse. I need more discussion around that topic.

My favorite quar listen

This podcast has brought me so much joy right now. The Ayo, Ike, and Bowen episodes are particular standouts, but it’s worth listening to every episode. The best thing about the show is that hosts George Civeris and Sam Taggart are so adept at matching the tone, comedy and conversation to the vibe of their guests, without losing their own very distinct sensibility.
