There ain’t nothin finer than to be in carolin’er

Well. There definitely is. We all know that. Still.
I have listened to you for years and knew I had to finally write a review. This mother of 3 daughters living in North Carolina says, THANK YOU. You are the highlight of every single week. There are many progressive Southerners, I swear! We are doing the Lord’s work here.

Texans love Groceries

I probably can’t say anything that anyone else hasn’t already said, but this podcast (AND Throwing Shade) is one of my absolute favorites. It’s hilarious, and Brian and Erin make me laugh - hard - on a constant basis. Just listen to it. You must.
