Great listen

After season 1 I had the hope they would do El P. While the distance between them in season 2 took some getting use to I love the 2nd season. Mike and Paul have very different vibes so it is hard to compare the seasons. Mainly due to the pandemic season 1 is still my favorite, but I’m digging for season 2.

Phenomenal interview podcast!

Hands-down my favorite interview podcast. Both seasons so far have been incredible and I’m already looking forward to a third season.
