While a good deal of new podcasts right now are first hand accounts of millennials being stuck inside, there are still plenty of other podcasts that would rather offer you a brief mental vacation to other places with other people that really have nothing to do with what’s going on right now with the global COVID-19 pandemic.
One of those new podcasts, oddly enough, is called Confronting Demons with Megan Stalter. Though the title suggests some sort of aggro-self help show with a plethora of very special guests or live callers. Stalter turns that format on its head by playing to her strengths of being playfully confrontational. Whether to guests that “never agreed” to come on (including Chris Gethard and Chelsea Peretti) to her brother Nick, Stalter has quite the knack for toeing the line of lashing out in the most hysterical way possible.
In general, Stalter is such a wild, fun burst of energy on stage and you can feel it in how rambunctious this podcast is. No matter where she goes, she keeps guests (no matter how “in on it” they are) on their toes and Confronting Demons ends ups being anything but that (which we’re thankful for as that’s all of what we’ve been all doing being stuck wherever you are in isolation).
Give a listen and have a grand ol’ time with Confronting Demons with Megan Stalter from Forever Dog, available wherever you listen to podcasts.
