Hello! If you are a Srsly Wrong listener, we recommend starting with Episode 1, since that's where we directly address Srsly Wrong. Episodes 1, 2, and 3 have Srsly-Wrong style skits.

In the future, we plan to experiment with limiting the number of quotes we include and doing more discussion, doing different types of discussion, different types of skits, and different editing decisions (e.g., music)! If you have any feedback, please email srslyleft@gma ...
