A little late but was a great radio show / podcast. Looking forward to whatever Brenden and Rico do next.

No. You Can't Go.

Mea maxima culpa. I never wrote a review for your show, until now... and now, it's too late.

You two are my favorite hosts, ringmasters and cocktail-cowboy personality wranglers. You've made me feel welcome at home - the kind of home with a secret back salon buzzing from funny, talented, creative people - that I carry around in my head, no matter where the rest of me may be.

I will miss you surgically pulling out the conversational quirk from people the way a veteran actress gets that second olive from a dirty martini like a pro. Thank you for hours of an intimate, smart radio menu that always had me looking forward to the next round.

Please tell me you will still be serving it up, on some other platform?

De gustibus non disputandum est. Cheers, you guys!
