Cannot love this enough!

This is one of the best podcasts out there. Interesting topics and the dialogue between Campbell and Phil is fantastic! Take a listen and enjoy especially as you take a break from the regular political podcasts. Very refreshing. Please keep it up guys!

Love the PodGOATS

They leave you wanting more. My only “complaint” is that the episodes aren’t longer! Turns out they are just the right length of time though, not too long. Dad jokes from ol’ Uncle Phil (do we call those Uncle Jokes?) never disappoint and Campbell’s reactions to them are always on point. Even when the GOATS hit on a fact I already know, it’s always interesting to hear their unique perspective. Keep it up guys!

Crazy random topics.

This show has some of the most random and crazy topics. Not all the episodes are great but most are. Every once in a while they'll throw something out that will blow your mind. Such as the universe episode where they talked about extraterrestrial life. One said what if there isn't any because we're the first... Whoa...
