The very best of the best duo!!
Tune in! There is no greater duo. I prefer listening to them over any other podcast. They are relatable and hilarious.
Anyone who has Luisa on can not be good people. Bad podcast!
I laughed, I cried, I nearly wrecked my car. Bridging the gap between millennials and centenarians, the show has got it all.
