Your podcasts are always fun even when discussing serious topics and I can’t wait to hear more. If you’re looking for some ideas I’d like to see a poll option for the would-you-rather episodes so the listeners can play along. Woof, Dave”

  • AJ Lewis: “I have a request, although the season is almost over, could you all please stop talking around the episode and out of order? I ask because you guys do not mention names, the scene or anything as though a spoiler will be released a week after the show aired. Yes we all know Valentina didn’t know the song and was sent home as a result, so please critique that action. Pick apart Debbie downer Nina or better yet their outfits.”
