THE STRUGGLE is a weekly podcast hosted by comedian Candice Thompson that explores everyday struggles that she and her guests are currently experiencing. From serious topics like addiction to more frivolous challenges like copious amounts of body hair, we all recognize that being an adult isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Sure, we get to eat gummy bears for dinner whenever we want, but wouldn’t it be great if we didn’t have to worry about next month’s rent, slowing metabolisms and our eggs shriveling up? Yes, my friend, THE STRUGGLE is real and the goal of this show is to make discussing and coping with the obstacles of adulthood a little bit easier. We all got issues...might as well laugh about it.

Conspiracy Candice

Podcast was cool pre-Covid. However Candice entertains A LOT of conspiracies, no matter how ridiculous. It’s brought down the quality of the show. I don’t care about Epstein, Hillary, plandemics, vaccinations or veganism. Check out the earlier episodes and avoid the Quarantine Files. Create a separate conspiracy podcast and leave this one for the jokes and fun.
