[00:00:44] Chelsey Donn: Oh my goodness. I can't believe it. We're just like Siskel and Ebert only instead of reviewing cinematic, masterpieces, we rate and review those hilarious scathing and sometimes suspicious online. Review!.

[00:01:01] Chelsey Donn: And that for the 52nd time is Trey Gerrald

[00:01:36] Trey Gerrald: Chelsey. Oh, my goodness. It's episode 52, which means it's been one year since we first. Well, this is none of this is actually true because Chelsey and I did five or did we do four dress rehearsal episodes?

[00:01:50] Chelsey Donn: I think we only did three. then the fourth one, we were like, let's run.

[00:01:56] Trey Gerrald: the fourth one I think was actually episode two. We used it as to do, but we did launch with three episodes.

[00:02:03] Trey Gerrald: So for Chelsey. This marks one year of recording for you listeners. I guess we're two weeks shy. It's so complicated, but we've also done many sides, so it's more than 52 times in actuality.

[00:02:19] Chelsey Donn: I just feel like we declare it exactly a year, because from here on out, we're going to be on schedule right

[00:02:27] Trey Gerrald: right.

[00:02:27] Chelsey Donn: at 1 0 4. That will be two years.

[00:02:30] Trey Gerrald: 1 0 4. Oh my God. That's 52 plus 52.

[00:02:35] Chelsey Donn: Am I right? Okay. I'm just making sure.

[00:02:39] Trey Gerrald: Wow. Chelsey, how has your week been? How has your year

[00:02:44] Chelsey Donn: Oh my goodness. What a year? What my year's been great, you know, coming out of retirement from the pandemic, I guess this podcast like changed my life. I remember the day that you texted me and you said, I want to pick your brain about something. And I was just like, I don't know what Trey wants to pick my brain about.

[00:03:07] Chelsey Donn: I'm like so curious. And they couldn't have possibly imagine that it would be what it is today, this podcast. I just feel so lucky that I get to do this with you every week.

[00:03:20] Trey Gerrald: Oh, my God. So it's in the middle. That's so nice. I mean, It is crazy to think that it's been a year, you know, I, and so much has happened in the year and so much has changed. And so much of my focus in life. Become about this podcast, which I count as such a treasure and such a gift truly. And it is crazy to think.

[00:03:40] Trey Gerrald: I mean, I know that we've talked about this on other podcasts as guests, but, um, I did always want to have a podcast and my original idea. Was not Review That Review. And I pitched it to Chelsey. And literally in that singular conversation, we formulated this idea. We did a bunch of rehearsals and we narrowed and hammered away and chiseled out.

[00:04:04] Trey Gerrald: And it's truly like, this is probably the law. This is the longest partnership I've ever had creatively. And it's such a

[00:04:11] Chelsey Donn: It is such a joy. I have to say, if you're going to work with a partner, I recommend finding someone with like a similar level of OCD,

[00:04:20] Chelsey Donn: you know?

[00:04:21] Trey Gerrald: we hit off. Yes.

[00:04:22] Trey Gerrald: We hit on this a couple of episodes back how we both like things we like to have control. We like to be in control of the outcome. Um, and we definitely do compliment each other and, and various areas of strengths. Oh my God. Look at this. I didn't even think we would go

[00:04:36] Chelsey Donn: I did I can't. I like, I, I like, oh, you know, I feel what's the Yiddish word, the garish word thought, even coming to mind, I'm for clamps. That's it. I was so far clamped. I forgot the word for Clint. I am now it's. I mean, there's nothing else to talk about other than the gratitude of this show and this experience and you listeners for listening in, and everyone that's reached out to tell us that you like what we're doing or that it brightens their day, or it gives you a laugh or.

[00:05:07] Chelsey Donn: Accompanying you to work or whatever it is, just know, like we hear you and we're so, so grateful and we both understand needing levity. And I used to listen to audibles all the time before I got into podcasting. So I understand the need for companionship. Th
