So awesome!!

Nick and Leah are soooooo fun to listen to! Funny, smart...every second of this podcast is great. I’ve learned a lot, and laughed a TON. I very much recommend this podcast.

_Were You Raised By Wolves?_ is wildly entertaining, educational, and relatable. Nick and Leah are a perfect pair. Just simply a delight to listen to each week - I laugh, I learn, I impatiently wait a week and then do it all again. The show is expertly organized and edited ; no rambling or long-winded tangents here (although I wouldn’t mind a little of that at all from these two - can’t get enough!). My only criticism is that the bonus episodes do not include the AMAZING and *very* danceable theme song at the intro.
