Sarah Breau reviewed this podcast on Mar 13th, 2019
"My favorite podcast that was supposed to only last a few months. The three hosts all have different strengths, and I like all three. The topics range from incredulous to serious, and the guests always have something interesting to add to the day's story. Recommended."
