I paid three times for this fucking podcast, still can’t get it, still don’t like it. Season 1 was amazing. Season 2 was disappointing, season 3 they forgot they were making a comedy. I keep paying because I love them so much but now I’m thinking fuck you. I paid to get it early x3 and still can’t get it, there’s only 2 episodes left and I can get those for free.

it took me a whole season and 2 episodes to realize this was fiction. Even the weather man defending himself in court which was freaking hilarious. I had already recommend it to everyone though so I'll let them find out on their own.

After the second episode I realized this isn't real, I was in that cult and I didn't know any Ky dude. Awesome podcast tho, I'm in love with Gwen's voice.
