    259 - Interview w/ Armando & Kenny from 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way!

    Mary Payne chats with 90 Day TOW favorites Kenny and Armando! They talk all about what’s coming up in the rest of the season and what they can and cannot tell us about the Tell All. They talk about the language barrier, the story of how they met and how they’re doing now. And most surprisingly, they tell MP who they’re in contact with on the current cast. Guess who’s teaching them to twerk?

These ladies are my fave

The way they retell stories make me belly laugh and they’re just here to hang out and be funny. The world needs more of that!

Love, but ditch the theme song

Updated: reducing stars because that song is slowly killing my soul.

Also, Erin’s slang and intentional use of the definite article (“the ‘gram”, “the Covid”) smacks of cultural appropriation. I’d watch that as it can offend.

Digging in your heels and not listening to the constructive criticism of your fans, is a mark of hubris and a real turn off. Please do reconsider.
———

The chemistry is great and the pre-show banter is the best. Mary Payne especially rocks and her addition to the podcast boosts an already great show.

PS: The intro makes my ears bleed, too tinny. Kinda sounds like Helium-induced singing inside a hypobaric chamber. Lyrics are just not good. Somewhere, Juliana Hatfield is dying.

Bratgirli ,

That horrible the song. Ugh!

I used to really love this podcast. They made some changes which take some getting used to but that new theme song. I changed my 5 star to 1 star because of it. They should listen to their audience and scrap the song because more people hate it than like it. Unsubscribing.
