Love it!

Dear concerned citizen,

I love your podcast, and I love you like a guy. I don’t know. I love your back stories and the research is amazing. I’m loving the dark sense of humor, it always makes me snicker. That being said, quit hating on the Black Keys! They had their time, and hopefully will make it back in the front of the bus, but just give them a little leeway, OK? Sure, I know you can. Keep doing what you’re doing! ❤️

One of the best if not the best podcast out there! CC is my hero! His dry humor and in-depth research makes my day! Keep up the good work!
