Great podcast host are great and crazy talented. Really enjoying learning more about world they occupy. I’ve been missing live music and performance arts this past year and this helps .

This podcast is a lot of fun!

These three women are some of the hardest working entertainers on the Renaissance faire circuit today. Coming from three different backgrounds, it’s really cool to hear stories and give us a peek behind the scenes. If you enjoy ren faires, music, or the arts in general, you will love this podcast! Can’t wait to hear more!
