Ep 50 Bruh!!!!!!!

WE DID IT BiNCH !!!
In this ep Jessi and Nicole dump more news on the listeners than a Texan pipeline dumping jet fuel into the Indiana River (that'll make more sense once you listen to the ep, promise). And at the risk of sounding click-baity, we've got a pretty big and important announcement for all our lovely listeners so make sure you slam that mf play button (the announcement is right at the beginning because we here at avocadotoast believe in instant gratification, as it is in our millenial/centennial nature that we simply cannot escape)

Enjoy!

49: "Good" Comedy

Jessi and Nicole talk about what makes John Mulaney and the McElboys SO GREAT at comedy. Spoiler: it's the fact that they don't try to disparage groups of people (other than jugglers, of course).
