ABOUT WHAT'S UP WEIRDO PODCAST: "What’s up Weirdo?" is a podcast… but also it isn’t a podcast. Most podcasts have a format and hosts that explain things, review things, or tell a story but honestly… most people listen to podcasts because there is something cozy about hearing the banter between the hosts who, hopefully, are friends. What’s up Weirdo? is just the cozy part, two friends talking to each other! John E.L. Tenney and Jessica Knapik are two friends who call each other all the time and chit-chat about everything from witchcraft to MMA, horror movies to The Bachelor, UFOs to dogs, and anything else they are thinking about. There is no script, no format and no filter. So listen and get cozy. We’re your new best friends." --
