Local To Nowhere is so much fun
As somebody who lives between multiple state lines and regularly enjoys reading absurd headlines featured in the various states I traverse, Local To Nowhere provides hilarious context behind news stories I have no interest in actually reading. Katie, Ryan and their guests are not just narrators reiterating a story, but performers who turn a one-liner into a 20+ minutes of pure entertainment.
A Fresh Take on Comedy
The concept of Local to Nowhere is a genius prospect for comedy podcasts. Katie Lassiter and Ryan Fleming are hilarious in their attempts to step into various states and humanize their curious headlines. The duo's wit is charming and stunning in their improv scenes .
