Definitely changed things up this week as for the first time in 7 months of doing this podcast, I interviewed someone that wasn’t part of the “Bachelor” world. You saw me post on Tuesday my appearance on Heather McDonald’s “Juicy Scoop” podcast this week, so Heather returned the favor and came on my podcast today. Two completely different interviews, so don’t think you’re getting a double dose. Those who have followed me over the years know how much I love stand up. I literally could’ve done two hours with Heather on just her stand up career alone, but there were so many other things to get to with her. Being a comedian, obviously Heather had plenty to say and we were on somewhat on a time constraint (I actually went over my allotted time with her), so I thank her for taking the time to do this. Plenty I never even got to ask, but what we do have are some great stories as a married mom with kids who also headlines in stand up comedy, which is very rare in that industry. As always, if you want to respond to the interview, please include Heather’s Twitter handle (@HeatherMcDonald) in your responses. A very fun interview, with some celebrity “appearances” around the 1 hour mark. So glad they could join us ha ha. Anyway, a very fun interview and a deep dive into her career including a couple of big stories that surrounded her in the past couple years. Can’t wait for you all to hear it.
