Can turn even a bad book into a good time!

Rachel and Margie make my commute to and from work my favorite part of the day! They are hilarious and episodes 98: Suddenly, MOTHMAN and 102: Deep Lore more than prove it!

Hilarious!

I don’t review anything, but this podcast deserves a shout out. Listening while I work on painting a portrait and I’m laughing so hard, I can’t hold the brush. The “50 Shades” episode is a scream.

Phleena ,

Great stuff!

Hilarious show with fabulous co-hosts! 😁
