Dope podcast!

I just started listening to this podcast and I already love it. It tackles the subjects that I’m interested in and the host’s voice is silky smooth so it’s not a bad listen by any means.

Favorite Podcast

Not trying to ramble but y’all need to know this series is great. I’ve been looking for a podcast that talks about anime, games, and other aspects of nerdy stuff. To be honest, I started listening to this podcast, because I was binge listening to the, “One Piece At a Time” podcast and finally caught up. I started following Godswill on social media and found out about, “That’s Dope”. Since then I’ve been binge listening, and now I’m on episode 12, and I really love the content! The discussions are just like the discussions I would have with my own friends. I’m never bored when listening because all of the content is informative and entertaining. Now, I’m sharing the podcast with others, who also feel the same way I do. Thanks to Josh, I’m finally going to take the time out to finish watching, “Yu Yu Hakusho”. Also, Godswill and Josh keep it up, y’all are really making this podcast live up to its name. Stay Dope Homies!

Shoutout To Godswill

Ever since I found out that Godswill had a podcast, I had to support and give it a listen. It's been great so far! I thought this would initially be all about anime, but the conversations have gone to many other topics which are refreshing. A lot of life advice to be had here as well. Keep it up!
