My Thoughts: Exactly what you’d expect. Psychedelic hippy woo-woo. It seems like these two agree about everything and cover the same ground every time they do a podcast together. Though I’m not into the psychedelic hippy woo-woo, I’m not against listening to it. But it has to be interesting. Duncan Trussell is someone who can make it interesting. Aubrey is not, in my humble opinion.
