Tits And Teeth Podcast Debuts Its First Season With All Star Canadian Lineup Photo Tits And Teeth Podcast Debuts Its First Season With All Star Canadian Lineup
by Stephi Wild - Aug 18, 2018

A new podcast dedicated to Canadian musical theatre, Tits and Teeth Podcast, has hit the airwaves. Hosted by Canadian show girls Jennifer Thiessen and Kyla Musselman, the podcast brings dressing room banter to the outside world. The pair conceived the idea while performing in the 2017 North American Tour of Saturday Night Fever. 'We decided it was important to open up conversations about the crazy, unconventional lifestyle that artists have. The highs and the lows, we wanted to know about it all from others out there, living and working in the musical theatre business like us' says Thiessen. 'And what better way to get to the bottom of any issue than with a strong cocktail in hand?!' Light-hearted and funny, they chat to an all star line up of Canada's finest musical theatre workers, all whist sipping their guests' favourite cocktail!
