My only non true crime podcast!

I love this so much! My wedding is still a year away but I know I will listen long after I’m married. Thanks Brooke and Pam for the comedy, commentary, & cocktails! You guys can totally come to my wedding (Brooke it’s in Georgia 🍑) keep up the great work! Ps lot of love to Ruthie ❤️🐾

Feythamaat ,

Amazing

I’ve been steadily making my way through all episodes, and I just love this podcast so much! Definitely one of the best parts of the wedding planning process.

Clairemcfay ,

Again!!

I have binged every single episode in a month. I just got engaged TWO DAYS AGO and I can’t wait to listen to them all again (I’ll definitely need those bridal breaks). I can’t wait to keep audibly gasping and yelling “not uh!” at especially egregious confessionals.
