Episode 33

After a long hiatus we are back with a new podcast series. Because of the wait we’ve released the first round (our normal “selection show”) as 2 regular episodes. This is Part 2.

What started out as a “Divas” tournament has now become a “Powerhouse Performers” tournament. This is the selection show for our next tournament: Powerhouse Female Performers. During this podcast we’ll start with our list of 16 “Divas” and transform it into the final list of 16 “Powerhouse Performers”. We’ll also discuss/figure out how exactly we’re going to compare all of these women for a tournament. This is actually the end of a 2 month long series of conversations and messages that started back in April 2014. We’ve been discussing female performers from all over the spectrum as well as trying to figure out just how we want to format the tournament. We end up settling on 16 female performers for this tournament but we’ve discussed so many just to get here. This is a brief list of some of the performers we discussed in compiling this final 16.
