vlcroft ,

Check the licorice pizza ep pls!!

Really love the pod but someone pleaseeee check that licorice pizza pod: the audio got super spliced up, some bits repeated some audio clips just totally cut off… i would think someone listens to them before they are released?? Had to just stop listening it was frustrating

bridgeseller ,

This group comes off as a bit snobby.
