Mary Payne’s good friend Ingrid drops in for this episode. Mary Payne and Ingrid are active podcast listeners and listen to a wide variety of podcasts. Each of them has compiled a list of their top five podcasts from 2018.
The ladies discuss the good, the great and the cringe-worthy, including Teacher’s Pet and Dr. Death. However, true crime podcasts are not all that have made an impression upon them, How I Built This, Watch What Crappens and The Dream are some of the others that are mentioned. Ingrid does not hold back talking about one of her favorites, My Dad Wrote a Porno, despite Mary Payne’s shy and nervousness on the topic.
