Wife Time with Mariya and Crystal (podcasts)
Wife Time is a comedy variety show for everyone who loves to laugh, especially at themselves. Mariya Alexander and co-host Crystal Sugarman are irreverent, incendiary, and irresistible. Join them weekly as they explore what it means to be human in an utterly stupid, absurd, and hilarious world.
Comedian Ryan Broems joins Mariya and Spencer again in the Los Feliz studio. Mariya makes fun of a racist California man who vandalizes the wrong house of worship which leads to another heartfelt plea for people in general to try to control their impulses and for Ryan specifically to abandon his love affair with Burger King. The topic of things that are bad for you naturally leads to a discussion about Donald Trump and his recently released health report. And much, much more.
