Thank you M, MK & M for reigniting my love for horror and podcasts. I would recommend ETTKY to anyone looking (or listening out) for something both entertaining & thought-provoking! I feel as if I am getting more interesting, clever & informed just listening to these remarkable women 📽💉💀👩‍👩‍👧‍👧 (not to be creepy but that last emoji is the 4 of us).
Love your gal,
Sienzo.
