HOLY SHIT IT'S BETSY SODARO

 

Definitely getting off to a great start with the guests!

 

I still giggle every time I remember her appearance on the Andy Daly Podcast Project.

 

"But whoa! Alas! I am changing, like a butterfly going through that one process."

There is a list of people I've gotten introduced to via podcasts that if I see their name pop up, I can't rush fast enough to get the episode. Betsy is very close to the top of that list. I love how much we get to see her shine in this one. Terrific stuff.

Man, this was awesome. I wish they would have dug into the Amanda Knox thing a little more, but c'est la vie (that's Italiano, right?). The fake commercials are so great.

 

Edit - Just listened through the Earwolf closing sting, which I don't normally do. Voiced by Stard and Lauren has an EP credit!

Reading the name Amanda Calzone alone has already made me break into laughter before even listening to the episode.

Does anyone here speak or know someone who speaks Italian and can interpret Amanda Calzone's prayer?

My Father is very sick and I would like to use her prayer to heal him.

In a world of oppressively awesome podcasts, WSGLL is rising to become the Ur-Queen of all comedy via sound. Our collective prison cell is the resulting laughter.

I pray that we are never freed from it.

I was wondering if this particular Lapkus character was going to make an appearance.

 

She was called Tracy in her original CBB appearance, so obviously that one was going to change.

 

Couldn't stop laughing when it was revealed her birth name was Amanda Knox. I'm pretty sure it was a coincidence that Lapkus named this particular character Amanda, but it was so perfect when Betsy knocked it out of the park.

Another delightful episode!

 

Betsy's poem on the Andy Daly podcast is still one of my favorite Earwolf moments ever.

I think it means... "Bend over, bitch?"

Every podcaster seems to have their own touchstone reference: Uatu the Watcher, Slimer, and now Greek god head births.

 

At the very least, it's less graphic than Lapkus' trademark scene premise on improv4humans (though no less funny for it).
