My fave podcast

I LOVE every episode, or at least the ones about celebrities I know. Shannon’s voice is so soothing and never annoying. She is funny and you can hear that she must be pretty smart too and thinks and researches every subject and seems like she has a very balanced approach to every blind item or gossip and doesn’t just follow the trends or what everyone is saying but she questions and listens to all the parties involved, which in this day and age is refreshing and reassuring. Thank you Shannon for all the work you put into each episode, FF is literally my go-to podcast for entertainment❤️
