Addi is my best friend...
From the moment I first listened to this podcast, I knew Addi and I really were meant to be BFFs. So what if I broke into her home and left a pile of my hair in her bedsheets? So what if I have a life-size doll made of straw that looks just like Addi? So what if I work at the DMV and have all of Addi's personal records available to me at any given moment?
Just kidding, iTunes! Don't send the police! Just send me a bag, because Addi's podcast makes me laugh until I puke.
I am filled with regret and ham loaf
A delightfully blossoming podcast featuring interesting guests on myriad topics. Always amusing, often hilarious and rarely dull. This podcast won't rewrite history, challenge the mighty titans or save the human race -- because it's a podcast, dum-dum, and it's meant for your aural enjoyment. Sit back and enjoy!
A Podcast By Any Other Name Would Not Sound As SWEET!
I've listened to every episode at this point, and they keep getting better and better! I've actually listened enough that I've started to actually believe that Addi is my Best Friend. (I can dream!) Addi is hilarious and charming, her guests are funny, the jingles are great. It gets the EonHand Seal Of Approval. Five stars!
