Pure Podcast Pleasure

Much like a fine glass of port and a delicious slice of Black Forest Cake , this podcast is pure undiluted pleasure. There’s nothing like the moment that Bailey starts to rank stuff. CJ really is that incredible blend of awesomeness, a little Bette Davis and your best friend who knows absolutely everything. As for Scott, he’s the wise godfather who introduced you to good scotch, Anias Nin, Star Wars and Tom Petty. He knows everything and has the perspective that breaks theater down to its most unique elements. This is the podcast everyone needs!!!!!!

Not (not) Lucky ,

Estragon and Vladimir would be relieved:

Not much waiting is necessary with these theatre nerds, since the content (to use the parlance of our times) flows like an endless stream of joyous insight, uncomfortable anatomical humor, hard earned theatre wisdom, and just a dash of self loathing to keep things rustled. I much love this podcast and look forward to every series, and I want these players, interpreters, directors, and creators of the stage to know just how amazed this theatre obsessive is with the quality and output of their work. You have made these turbulent times - which followed other turbulent times, and which will be followed by more turbulent times - so much more comfortable in the loneliest hours when sleep is telling me to piss off, or when I’m sitting by the side of an empty road on a pile of battered stones beside a long dead tree. I leave the rope at home and on purpose now. Thank you good people quaquaquaqua…

Vokanaya ,

Love this show!

Scott Leggett’s mouth trumpet it unrivaled! And J Bailey would rank your grandmothers if you let him! Meanwhile, CJ’s chain smoking is sex worker positive, to say nothing of the fact that it really sounds like she’s the one saying “Sing it out, Loiuse! Ahhhh!” In the show’s theme song. What more could you ask???
