  • I am loving the show ever since discovering them from Jon Stewart. But please, for the love of God, make a single pop culture reference that isn't Harry Potter. Like, even once.

  • Find this podcast very interesting…

    But Leah’s vocal fry is killing me! I usually don’t even notice things like this but it makes the episodes unlistenable! It makes me sad because like I said, I find the discussion very interesting.

  • Excellent
