Even after 60 episodes as of this review, Shonali and Christian always make the show feel like you arewith them in a cool club downtown surrounded by close friends. Always an interesting lineup of guests with fascinating stories and amazing talent.
Great mix of comedy, music and observations about life with an upbeat, positive attitude! Check it out!
So good you'll wet yourself
Bhowmik and Felix are hilarious! Their chemistry is super fun and spontaneous. We Don't Even Know is one of my favorite podcasts to listen to but it's even better when you get to attend the live recordings...unless you're one of those people who don't like peeing in your pants out of laughter.
Shonali’s laugh is one of life’s great pleasures. It is impossible to hear her laugh and not laugh yourself. I listen to Shonali and Christian talk about life and love and comedy while I’m stuck in traffic. And it makes me feel like I’m with friends.
