It begins with a real bummer and ends up nice.

They weren't going to a show. They're probably getting divorced.

Great

JT and Kat are awesome! Their podcast is funny, weird and can get dark, perfect mix for me! Love it!

Great podcast!

The reason for my 4 star rating is Kat. This podcast is wonderful and weird and for the most part, I love both of the hosts. However, kat seems to LOVE playing social justice warrior which can get really annoying. Aside from that, I enjoy listening twice a week and learning about all kinds of weird sh**!

Used to be great

I've been listening since The Box of Oddities started, it used to be great and really funny. Now there are too many advertisements and the hosts just aren't as funny as they used to be. I guess they keep the best content behind the patreon pay wall. There are 3 to 5 minutes of ads in the middle of every episode now. At least put them at the end so I can easily skip them. I used to look forward to every episode but now I don't care to listen.
