Great show

Dennis is always funny I love the obscure references throughout the show

Female Listener

I wish Dennis would make more podcasts more often! His droning voice puts me to sleep from the Covid (quarantine) induced insomnia. It also picks me up during the midday slump in energy. Yes, I am a female listener Dennis, I just ignore the “inappropriate” jokes.
