two icons

a must for any figure skating fan — even if you don’t follow the sport, you’ll be entertained by their witty banter and positive while still honest commentary. love love love them to plushie corner & beyond

One and done

Listened to one episode. Content and knowledge could make for an interesting podcast but the excessive and completely unnecessary swearing reminds me of preteen boys trying to sound cool. It makes them sound so boring and unintelligent that they can’t come up with actual words to express their thoughts and have to take the lazy approach.

Funny and positive

Meghan and Neda are a ton of fun. Love their banter and their humor. So positive toward skaters…. And plushies!
