I felt compelled to keep listening because of Torry’s speculation and refreshingly honest representation of herself. She is a 26 year old woman, with all the ambitions, fears, insecurities and baggage that comes with the territory. She is not shy about this; by embracing the opinions and struggles that those in a different age demographic might cast off as insignificant, the host creates a candid narrative that pulls the curtain aside on today’s media-driven culture.
The production value is fantastic; there is zero mic hum or background noise, and if there is any reductive editing you certainly can’t tell. Their voices are smooth, and extremely friendly on the ear. No um’s, tongue clicks or lip smacks, the microphone etiquette is pristine and makes an already great show an even more enjoyable listening experience.
At its core, each episode of the Thursday Thunderdome podcast is an exploration of a singular subject, with plenty of runway available to take the conversation in numerous directions. Although it’s not a concrete tenet of the show, each episode tends to carry a fair amount of disagreement between the two hosts, opening the door on divisive subjects like the 1993 childhood classic, “The Sandlot.”
