Loved this!

It really brought me back to my youth of playing tiny hawk pro skater and telling authority to back the “eff” off! #upthepunx

Tiyhk ,

Worth a listen!

Not usually one to leave reviews for podcasts. But I have to say for something I randomly came across an ad for on tiktok. There was great production value, great music and overall a great time. My only gripe is that I thought it ended too soon. But all good things ended eventually. Definitely excited for Super Normal Media’s next project.
