So good and so needed

They talk about racism but manage to make it…fun? That feels weird to say, but it’s true. This is such a great show. Everyone should listen.

Launchpad McQuack travesty

Sorry, reviews weren’t allowed on “Yo Can We Live!?” (Subs available through suboptimalpods.com) and I had to get this off my chest. I can’t believe Disney was selling shirts with Dale dabbing. When I went to Disneyworld, I did a meet and greet with Launchpad McQuack, we waited in line for like 20 minutes. The only thing I wanted from this trip was to get a picture with myself and one of the characters dabbing, and Launchpad is one of my favs so obviously this was my moment. First strike: it wasn’t even him! Just some guy in a suit who refused to speak to me. When I posed for the picture, he gave me a “no” signal with his hands and made us do another pose for the pic. I felt violated. Afterwards my husband informed me that they probably can’t do it because they think it’s a gang symbol. I think that’s probably racist, so that’s how this review is relevant. TLDR: Launchpad McQuack is a racist narc.

Less Andrew more tawny and voicemails

Andrew is by far the worst part of this show. Tawny, the guests, the producers, the over thinking voicemails are all the best thank you! Please get rid of Andrew asap
