Janet Varney, who I'm going to assume is an AST favorite, has her own podcast on the Nerdist network called The JV Club. I'll let the show introduce itself:
It's listed in iTunes under comedy, and it's definitely and often funny, but I'm not sure I'd call it a comedy podcast. It's kind of like The Minivan Men or Comedy Film Nerds in that they're funny - they can't help but be funny - but they're not about being funny, if you know what I mean. I don't know how I'd categorize it other than "great." The ladies have all been very interesting, and I find JV to be compellingly funny. She's a good host (as you'll know if you heard her fill in for Jesse on TSOYA) and is getting better as she does more episodes.Remember what it was like to be an awkward teenager? And remember how some things haven't really changed that much for you since then? Join proud dork Janet Varney as she explores the highs and lows of the bygone years with some of her favorite women as they talk their way through the terrible teens into adult-lescence.
Warning: This Podcast Contains Sincerity.
Despite being a boy, I'll often find myself relating to a problem, phase, feeling, or experience JV and her guest are discussing. When Anne of Green Gables comes up, I'm lost, but it's still charming to hear, say, a June Diane Raphael talk with Janet about a book that meant so much to them as kids. I can't even imagine how awesome the podcast would be if you're in the target demo.
Give it a try! The first episode with Christina Hendricks is as good a place as any to start, although Kerri Kenney-Silver's experience and insight as a mother makes that episode a particularly fascinating listen. The newest episode with Jessica St. Clair is great, too. I've loved them all.
