a lone toadstool ,

Best podcast you’ll listen to!

I’ve been listening for around 2 years now and I have to say I ADORE this podcast!!! Andrew and Jess’s chemistry is hilarious, and every episode is something new. I’ve listened to other musical commentary’s and none of them come close to Musicals with Cheese.

A cheesy review

My favorite theatre podcast! Always a joy to listen to and hear the ridiculous banter. Even if 90% of the time it’s Mamma Mia or Frozen references.

Love it! Keep it up!

But in all seriousness, it’s a great and fun way to explore musicals and has introduced me to so many that I now love.

It us. We are them

I guess I should review this
