  • Jake stop saying like

    Hi, Jake please stop saying like so much. It sometimes takes you 4 likes to get to your advice. Listen to the episode you’ll hear it. more

  • Love Jake - needs new cohost

    I came here for Jake and love him but he really needs a new cohost. Talia comes off as so insensitive and ignorant and it’s hard to listen to advice from someone so young who has a lot of learning to do herself.

  • Earnest Comedians..? It’s more likely than you think

    I came here for vibes and am genuinely impressed by how entertaining this podcast is. These two are really fun and relatable while still delivering interesting perspectives. I wish Jake was my mentor/friend in many ways. Thanks guys!

  • LOVE

    I’m a Spotify listener but wanted to come on here to tell y’all I love the pod. I started listening because I loved you both on Julia Leahy’s pod. Whenever I start a new podcast I have to listen to every episode from the beginning because I want to see if I ever get the ick and y’all did the opposite for me 🫶🏻 can’t tell you how many times I laugh out loud while listening. Hopefully something chaotic happens in my life so I can call in, love you both!!
