A show that is brimming with positivity. Christian and Jeff constantly try to bring new or interesting voices to the show that differ from their own. It is a show about enjoying each other and games in a way that is refreshing against the constant cynicism. I also appreciate that they are not afraid to confront political issues when they intersect. We don’t live in a vacuum and I appreciate them wearing their hearts on their sleeves and want the world to be a better place.
