One of the best out there! I am so grateful for this podcast as it has truly enriched my life. Not only has listening brought me so much joy - good Lord, do I laugh and laugh! - I have learned so much. As a straight, white female, Kid Fury and Crissle have helped broaden my perspective - when I didn't even know I needed it. Forever grateful!

Amazing and unabashedly honest!

I love the show, it is raw, entertaining and honest but doesn't take itself too seriously. They effortlessly tackle the filth and the serious with humor, depth and unique insight. You will love it!

Your podcast is a game changer for me. Listening to The Read every week has gotten me through some tough times by making me laugh when I was broken, hurt, frustrated, back against the wall and alone. You two kept reminding me if I can laugh I can handle anything. The Read was also there when blessings shined upon me and I was so grateful. The Read reactivated my desire to get involved in my community and I did. And I plan to do more in 2017. Your podcast is an essential part of my self care. Thank you two for bringing your wonderful, influential, insightful, smart, inspiring, comedic talent to podcasting and to my life. Kid Fury and Crissle you are both a treasure keep up the great fun that you two have every week.

I wake up like Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray every Thursday morning looking forward to The Read every week. Crissel and Fury are so f'in smart and funny. Thursday's are so sad when The Read isn't ready. And yet, Wednesday's are the absolute best when The Read comes early.

You guys are the best!!! You are part of my life, and I count that as a great thing. So much, so that even if I ran into you on the streets of New York, I would keep my joy to myself and not bother you. Lol. I would love to hear about books you have read or are reading, that you love.

I just started listening to the Read a few weeks ago and I find myself catching up on old episodes every day. Even though I'm not familiar of some of the things during the Shade in Full segments, it's a very interesting, hilarious, unapologetic insight into black culture. Kid Fury and Crissle have fantastic chemistry that is infectious.Plus, every time I hear the theme song, I get so hyped! 😂🙌🏽
