If you can, this might be more fun to watch on Twitch or  YouTube where you can read the chat and see our pretty faces.

This week is our live show. Editing is light and trolls are unfortunately fed. We riff on "Conversations with Tyler" by doing over-rated vs under-rated. Let chat adjudicate our coffee bets and talk with chat.

You can also find us on discord

Big list of coffee bets - now also on Melange app.
