Amazing!

This is one of my favorite podcasts in the world, and I only actively listen to, like, two. I love how Jill and Amanda talk about the cut sketches and digitals of the night, but I especially love when they obsess over the cute moments of the cast, host, and crew. One thing I really want to hear, though, is what the hosts of this podcast think about the sketches and digitals regardless of wether they aired or not. Which one was their favorite, etc. This podcast makes me wish I could do standby line and meet the cast soooo much! Even if I did the standby line, I would still listen to this podcast because their POV as standby veterans is so very interesting. If you see this, Jill and Amanda, thank you for such an amazing listen! ♥︎♡︎♥︎

organic, fun, and funny conversations

As someone who lives literally across the country from snl and wouldn’t be able to go see it live anyways, it’s so great to listen to accounts of shows I wanted to attend and hear about what got cut, what they think of the sketches, and shenanigans in dress rehearsal. The hosts do a great job of putting on a show. They’re fun to listen to, and ultimately leave me feeling better than me 30 minutes ago. Plus, I absolutely adore hearing about interactions with cast members since I want that for myself so bad. If you have any free time to spare, I definitely suggest this podcast!💕💕💕
