S3: E18 Girls Just Wanna Podcast

We are back and MARCH-ing in formation for Women’s History Month! We have lots of podcast news, a BYOP, and a special women-led podcast interview on this month’s episode. Listen to the show and find the show notes below.

In the (podcast) news:

BYOP (Bring-Your-Own-Podcast)

It was Lainey’s turn to bring a surprise (to Alex) podcast that she’s loving. She brought The Last Degree of Kevin Bacon from Funny Or Die. Here’s the description:

Randy Beslow lost the role of Footloose to Kevin Bacon and has spent the last 30-plus years blaming Bacon for the way his life turned out. After he hits rock bottom, he snaps and embarks on a mission to hunt down Bacon and exact his revenge.


This 10-episode, Spotify-original podcast that features the ACTUAL voice of Kevin Bacon is so delightful!

Find a few articles about the pod here:
“‘The Last Degree of Kevin Bacon’ is a new Spotify podcast starring the famous actor” on Philly Voice

“Kevin Bacon is so in on the six-degree of Kevin Bacon joke” on CNN

Watch a video with Kevin on Funny Or Die here.

Find the tweet Lainey mentioned to the left.

We can’t wait to hear more from this podcast and what your six degrees from Kevin Bacon are. Email us with your claim to fame!
