Refreshing take on RVA with entertaining chats
First two episodes were on point! Well done ladies. Looking forward to discovering more through your chats with the Richmond Famous!
Like Portlandia without comedy.
First off: the mics and levels need to be adjusted. It sounded like a bunch of snakes were having a conversation with all of those S’s clipping.
Other than that, the podcast seems pretty vapid. The guests have little knowledge of Richmond and attribute larger social changes in the country to only RVA.
Additionally something seems fishy about their ratings. iTunes says it’s 5.0 stars even though they have 22 ratings with multiple 3 star reviews. I guess... put a fish on it?
Laura Sant is awesome!
