Laugh out loud funny!

This podcast cracks me up. The hosts are so funny. As an avid self help book reader I cant help but laugh at all the truths they point out in hilariously different ways. Would definitely recommend for your podcast playlist!

Much more fun than reading books alone

A perfect blend of book analysis, wacky tangents, and frank self-evaluation, every episode is an entertaining little book club that lets you enjoy the fun conversation without feeling pressured to finish the required reading on time. Katie and Justin have great chemistry and clearly would enjoy having a conversation even if it weren't recorded. Pairs beautifully with an honest attempt at self-improvement or as a diffuser to commuter road rage.

Pressed play. Hilarity ensued.
