I’ve listened to TBTL for almost 10 years now and haven’t missed an episode. There’s nothing like checking in and talking about life. So relatable and entertaining!
A great waste of time!
This podcast has been my favorite way to spend time during the quarantine and is now my daily habit!
My Go To pod!
This podcast is like meeting up with your best friends. Those friends you share all your thoughts with, constantly laugh with, that leave you a good fuzzy feeling that just makes a bad day melt away. For me it started out of curiosity after a quick promo from Carina Longworth of YMRT. Very quickly it became a daily listen. I put it on while I’m on a morning walk, driving, shopping, working or puttering around the house. Luke and Andrew give us their hot takes with quick wit, jokes that don’t land and all too relatable mundane minutiae five days a week. Give Too Beautiful Too Live a try!
