It's REALLY Happening
So. This is really happening. This podcast brainchild of ours is becoming a podcast reality. Ever since our mutual love for podcasts developed, we have flippantly thrown around the idea of starting our own. Then one morning over bacon and eggs and bottomless coffee, throughout the course of a three hour brunch, The Kitschy Kountdown came to be.
As we sat there sketching logo designs on a receipt (that is definitely being kept in the hopes of auctioning it off for big money one day after we become podcasting sensations, because there is such a thing…) and brainstorming episode topics, we thought, how hard could this be? We have always been the type of friends who have long phone conversations and charming witty banter (according to us and our moms), and we could totally rock a conversation about anything. From Corinne’s use of the phrase “bare bosoms” on The Bachelor to the complex interworking of friendships to how to resolve conflict in marriage, this will all come together beautifully.
What we were grossly underestimating were the countless texts we would be sending to each other in the coming weeks; the numerous hours we would spend on the phone having in-depth discussions over whether we should be “The Kitschy Kountdown” or “Kitschy Kountdown"; the hours sitting on the floor of a glorified closet hovered over a microphone recording our first episodes; how unnatural it would feel to try to have a natural conversation with your friend while trying to simultaneously sound engaging. But, what we were also grossly underestimating was the immense gratification that would come from simply embarking on this process. After mentioning this idea so many times in passing, the fact that we are actually making it happen is exhilarating. And we haven’t even debuted any episodes yet!
We are ecstatic to launch The Kitschy Kountdown and are so grateful for your support. We hope to create a community where women can come to contemplate and discuss the thoughtful and trivial things of life and find community amongst us and our listeners. Stay tuned as we will be announcing our official launch date in the coming days! For the most up to date information, follow us on Instagram @kitschykountdown or on twitter @kitschkountdown.
