Super real and hilarious

I love everything about Tasha and Gabe. Very relatable (albeit kind of way cooler than me) and hilarious ladies. They don’t take the podcast game too seriously, but in a good way. They do their research well and openly admit when they don’t know enough about a topic to have an opinion about it. This podcast is such a fun way to revisit these ridiculous old eps of one of the greatest shows on TV!

Newly obsessed with this show!!

Will openly admit that I started this assuming it was hosted by two queer women who were married to each other! I thought to myself “cool! A queer perspective on SVU!” Very quickly discovered that that’s *not* the case but I still find this show ABSOLUTELY delightful ^-^ Gabe and Tasha are so funny, their friendship shines, and their perspective on SVU is really refreshing bc you can hear them grappling with it while also enjoying it. Highly recommend you give it a listen!!

Favorite Podcast of All Time

Fellow Midwesterner and SVU lover, this show is fantastic. Been listening since season 1– I love it so much I sing a song to my dog about it on Tuesday mornings.
