Hate how much I love it🤍

Matt and Bari are the greatest. I have listened to every episode, it’s my chaser every week! It’s a true dream of mine to go to Disney high as a kite with these two 😊💕

Matt is hilarious, but I cannot stand the “nEXt!” voice that he does. Also sorry, but I find Bari’s laugh to be so annoying, and she doesn’t add anything to the show besides a voice for Matt to banter with. Just please get a different cohost, Matt, and this will be gold!
