    Out of the Blue: Prompt Queens, Season 2, Episode 7

    Out of the Blue: Prompt Queens, Season 2, Episode 7

    This is not a Debbie Gibson episode (though, note to self for later), but we do write to a title she used: Out of the Blue.  As always, two different takes on a theme, two different approaches, a unified love of jokes and nonsense.

    The Factory: Prompt Queens, Season 2, Episode 6

    The Factory: Prompt Queens, Season 2, Episode 6

    It's good work if you can find it, but Hope & Emily write pretty bleak songs about factory work this week: one historical and one contemporary.  You can write your own song about the factory and send it in!

    Gettin' Lit & Gettin' Laid: Prompt Queens, Season 2 Episode 5

    Gettin' Lit & Gettin' Laid: Prompt Queens, Season 2 Episode 5

    Do we apologize in advance? Do we write a disclaimer?  IDK, you can see what the title of this episode is.  You know what you're getting into.  Despite the terrible prompt and questionable songs, it's a pretty good episode.  You should write your own terrible song to this terrible prompt and share it with us!

    Alanis Morissette: Prompt Queens, Season 2 Episode 2

    Alanis Morissette: Prompt Queens, Season 2 Episode 2

    Hope and Emily (figuratively) tackle Alanis Morissette, although if they were to ever meet her they might be so excited that they do tackle her.  No they wouldn't, Alanis.  No one will tackle you.  Either way, as admirers of her music, the Prompt Queens had a great time trying to write a song for her.  You should write one too!

The BEST songwriting podcast out there!

I love this podcast! Hope and Emily are so talented and motivational. These lovely ladies make song writing sound easy and fun—and it is! They encourage folks to send their own work in with a change to have it played on the show. So awesome. Thanks Dunbars for doin’ watcha do, and encourage listeners to share their creations too!

PROMPT-ly inspires you to be more creative - and LOLs galore!

I am a such a fan of this podcast! I'm always on the search for great podcasts on creativity/art/creative process and this is one is in a league of it's own! Hope and Emily have a grounded, down to Earth vibe mixed with an uber inspiring songwriting chops. The podcast is educational (I love being a fly on the wall with this two Prompt Queens as the write and compose on the fly!) and guaranteed they also always make me laugh (like, out loud, at the gym, on the treadmill with my headphones on!) Even if you aren't a musician or songwriter, I think any lover of music or any other creative who listens to this podcast will agree - it's a gem!

Amazing!!!!

One of the most fun and enjoyable podcasts out there! Hope and Emily are not only incredibly talented singer songwriters, they are kind, funny, empathic and encouraging to all those who strive to write and share their own songs. They share listener submissions and share encouragement, they build others up! If you need a smile and you’re having a bad day, they’ll cheer you up! If you’re having a great day, they’ll add a little extra to your day, they are the perfect pair! Their banter is fun and authentic! They are the Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen of podcasting, Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, Abbot and Costello, Leslie and Ann Perkins, Woody and Buzz lightyear, Bono and the Edge, McCartney and Lennon and of course, the best ones, themselves!! And the list goes on and on, so if you haven’t started listening, get to it!
