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.
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.”
