Why are there many stars?

Love the dynamics of the hosts on this podcast. I’ve gotten in the routine of playing this for my cats and my pregnant wife every Tuesday morning. Keep up the good work!

Take a shot every time Henry says “we can’t keep that in” and then keeps it in. Lookin at the Big Dark Energy... 😂

But in all honesty, fantastic show, keep it up👍👍
