What is the story of why you started your show?
Connor and I (Christina) met in our sketch comedy group in college in New York. We both studied TV writing, and once we graduated we realized that that dream was pretty far fetched as young twenty-somethings with no prior credits. At that time, podcasts were becoming more mainstream and we decided that this idea would be a lot cooler (and a lot more feasible) if it was something you could listen to. We starting writing this in late 2016 (!!!) inspired by gayness and our general fear of Mike Pence/Clay Aiken. Enter Ben, a longtime friend and sound design wonderkid into the mix. Once he created and showed us the theme song, we knew we were in it for the long haul. Over the next two years, we wrote and rewrote, and then recorded and mixed everything out of Ben's bedroom (sorry Ben.)
