Customer Reviews

Anja Keister ,

A simple premise with non-simple people

Viktor's podcast is a pretty regular concept - he and his interviewee(s) sit down and chat. The thing that makes this podcast so entertiaing is the range of people he is interviewing. Drag performers, burlesque people, artists, goths, kinksters, clowns, makeup artists, members of the LGBTQIA+ community and more. There is honestly something for everyone who has ever been interested by the allure of the nightlife and cabaret scenes of a city.
