Fiesta Maiden ,

THESE TWO!

These two sisters knock it out of the park! Between their great regular episodes and their cramp word episodes with guests, I love can’t get enough of their content.

Spooky Spouses ,

Yes please!

Lindsay and Madison are the coolest and their show is excellent. Thanks for making such a great show, Y’all!

Dianamo ,

So funny

The jokes just keep coming, that’s what I’m all about. Cramp words is always in the back of my mind now! when I hear a new term in a period show, I’m like “I wonder if they’ve done this one yet?”
