This Is Going Well, I Think with David Cooper

This Is Going Well, I Think with David Cooper

Descend on chaos and uncertainty. Wonderful. Terrible. Irreverent. Irrelevant. Whatever it turns into, it’ll turn into something. This Is Going Well, I Think. The show oscillates between frenzied comedy and confession-booth sincerity, blurring the lines between his personal relationships and on-air ones in a way both intimate and (arguably) intrusive. Think Car Talk, but not helpful at all. New episodes five days a week. No promises. This show is a nightmare. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
