ITS THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT
And this show is fiiiiiiiine.
And now that the obligatory pop culture reference is done, THIS SHOW IS GREAT. Thoughtful, well produced, and funny, it's a good listen on the current state of society, and culture, and the ever present specter of Armageddon that we all live with. HIGHLY recommended. Listen. Now. Do it.
She's super OK
JoAnna is a voice of our generation. Not *the* voice, just a voice. Loud and shrill mainly. But funny. Really funny. I dated her once in college. That was enough.
Incredibly candid and kinda scary
I've been a fan of Jo Anna Van Thuyne's for some time and this podcast might be her best work yet. The topic is scary (and gets scarier by the day) but it's discussed in a comedic way. So at least we'll all die laughing, either from the jokes or an H bomb.
