Hmmmmmm

I’m sure I’d like this podcast but every episode comes with an error box saying “episode unavailable”.

Edieissss ,

Episode 43

Horrible. The guest had nothing new or interesting to say about Andy Warhol. Nothing about how important his work is today and why. All I heard was I want to be famous by that airhead guest! I will cancel unless you do a better podcast on Andy😌
