RPPR Something for everyone, and everything great quality

By BrownieMuffin - Sep 08 2019
Read more
I started listening a few years ago because of some specific content that I was interested in. I have gone on to consume their entire library. There is enough variety to spark interest, and everything is good enough quality that you will find yourself enjoying things you would not have thought to listen to previously. On top of that, they have a good cast that plays well together and is interesting in their own right.

Sjw intro, instant turn off.

Bringing up un proven allegations up about people I’ve never heard of is bad form. Be a professional.
