Fight the good fight

Every episode Jo and Manolo struggle to make a podcast as listeners try to sabotage them. And then Manolo tries to sabotage himself. Its a great laugh, fun for the whole family, and wonderfully heartwarming.

Harrowing

Comedian Jo Firestone is bedeviled by a series of foes posing as guests, fans, and the cohost of a call-in gameshow. A triumph of the human spirit.

You could win a custom magnet!

Imagine if the Muppets were real people, and you’ve never heard of them, and they do an improv Gameshow podcast with listeners obsessed with Elton John becoming a werewolf...

This is that, but good
