Clever & Entertaining Podcast!
Pam is a local legend in Western Massachusetts and her improv style is second to none. This podcast is a refreshing look into the world of women in comedy with a pointed, humorous and honest perspective. It doesn't take itself too seriously and makes you feel like you're listening to an organic conversation between friends and colleagues. And Pam is an inspiration for anyone looking to re-invent themselves and live out their dreams. I'm hooked!
I'm biased I guess, but
Pam is so delightful!!! I can't wait to start zen of improv 1! I found myself crying in the Jill Bernard episode, highly recommend that one!!! Life changing podcast!
