Mandykaps ,

Awesome!

These gals are better than my real
Life friends! The podcast is so light and fun, yet at times truly insightful. It feels like a great girls night out. Maybe that’s cuz I’m always drunk when I’m listening😛

Almost Famous and Already Great Fun

Dani and Povs are so fun to listen to, that within a few minutes, you'd never believe that they aren't already famous! They are in fact what we call fame-adjacent, but, for the non-famous among you, the term "Almost Famous" applies. Come back every week for a fun conversation about celebrity, show business and the best way to get them over the threshhold towards fame, and wanting to live forever. And ever. And ever.

Great team

Dani and Povs are hilarious separately and even better together! What a great team!
