The only thing trashier than the show is this podcast promoting this show. Absolutely terrible.
Easy listening. But cast doesn't seem to be a big fan of the show
Well produced. But wish the cast wasn't so negative about the show.
Im sure most of the listener base somewhat enjoyed the TV show. And came looking for more on a podcast. Considering the show is an MTV show about quirky 20 year olds, it's tough to hear it judged so harshly.
I'll probably give it 1 or 2 more episodes because I enjoy the episode review on my drive. But I hope for less character bashing.
Favorite siesta key recap
Watching the show wouldn't be as fun if I didn't have this podcast to listen to! I love their smart and funny dialogue. They give a good sense of how the real people who live in the area feel about the show.
