It’s so stupid. So incredibly stupid.
I love it. Please make more. And try advertising more maybe like you did on Steam Rollers. That’s where I’m from. Thumbs up, yo!
Edit: Ok, seriously now. I’ve listened to about all of this so far (hopefully more) and it’s really really good. I don’t know what kind of ultra silly spectrum-touched comedy this is but it’s fantastic. The narrator really seems to put her all into it and it comes out really well. There’s lots of running gags that don’t get old and the plots and writing and everything else is so unique to me. I couldn’t imagine the psychosis it takes to makes this stuff up. It’s so dumb in the best of ways.
One thing I find really nice is it’s not political as far as I can tell I think? At least I’ve been kept guessing as to the leaning of the creator. Like I’m pretty sure President Cthulhu is Trump, and she’s made a few jabs at capitalism, both things I find important right now, but it’s FUNNY! And the league of adventurous women or whatever could SO EASILY be wrought with mindless progressive stuff, but it’s not and it’s FUNNY! Or I’ve completely missed a few points but meh, ignorance is bliss. It’s very refreshing and I sincerely hope more of this is made. 10/10 will listen again.
One of the funniest fiction podcasts I’ve ever heard (especially for fans of puns and Python-esque humor). I’m sad that she’s putting it on hold while she writes her novel, but if it’s half as good as her podcast, I'm sure I’ll love it.
