This is my go to podcast. I tell EVERYONE about you two! I can’t help it if they are radison dick pigs and don’t listen. Not everyone went to Freddy Bell Jones finishing school. I look forward to this podcast every week more than any other podcast.? And, honey, these days all I do is listen to podcasts. Honestly I feel like you both have more time on your hands now and should be releasing two throwing shades and groceries every week. We are just chilling at home, no responsibilities, right?! Just kidding, I have to hide to listen cause I have three young kids. And don’t get it twisted, I have listened with my kids in the room cause I’m a hot mess express but my kids told me they don’t like all the bad words. (Might not be my kids...) all that aside, thank you for what you do! (Erin and Bryan, no side picked here!). You keep me sane! Love you so much!
