Great F**ing Podcast
I heard of this podcast from Bad Cop/ Bad Cop! Now I can’t stop listening! I literally listened the whole day! Already on season 2. Jessica and Kristen are hilarious. Putting this podcast on is never a bad idea.
Only punk podcast I subscribe to
Great idea perfectly executed. These ladies are awesome.
Best podcast out there - punk rock, female or otherwise
This is the reason that podcasts exist. As the Ladies of Mable and their guests chat about the bands, music, and scene of punk rock, they have a casual realness to them that makes them instantly relatable and likeable. Interviews with people in the industry both big and small seem more like real conversations than routine question-and-answer segments, and the banter between co-hosts Kristen and Jessica feels more like listening to friends chat than hearing talk show hosts. It is informative, fun, inclusive and hilarious. This podcast has reminded me why I fell in love with punk rock in the first place and made me excited to find new music. I highly recommend it.
