No Hugging, No Learning

No Hugging, No Learning is the show about one thing...watching Seinfeld for the first time. After sitting down and watching every episode, hosts Tim Murphy and Ted Hallowell will talk about what bits still work, what worked back then, and things that are so cringe that they probably should never have been part of the show...at least from a modern day viewpoint. New episodes of No Hugging, No Learning drop every Sunday. Email us: nohuggingnolearningshow@gmail.com Follow us: @nohugging on Twitter... Show More
