Courtney Act and Vanity have joined the Nova Podcast Network, with ‘Brenda, Call Me!’ launching on Thursday, 11 February.
Best friends, drag superstars and sisters in crime, Courtney Act and Vanity catch up on what’s got them fired up each week on their new podcast.
Chatting all things drag, what’s going on in their lives and in the world around them—from the political to the downright silly—no topic is off limits in the new podcast, Nova said.
They’ll even call up a celebrity friend along the way to help them nut it out. Nova added that the show is “camp, high energy and features plenty of sass”, with each episode aiming to transport listeners into the conversation, no matter where they are in the world.
“’Brenda, call me’ is the text Vanity and I send to each other when we want to chat,” Courtney said. “We have been friends for 20 years, lived all around the world, in different time zones, and we are super excited for you to listen in on our best friend conversations, we’re just glad they are not live and the legal department will be reviewing them before they hit your ear drums.”
Vanity added: “We thought we were going to be recording this podcast on opposite sides of the world, but Ms. Rona has reunited us and we’re super excited to be sitting face to face giving our unsolicited Australian drag opinions on all sorts of topics.
“Courtney doesn’t actually know why we call each other ‘Brenda’ so make sure you tune in when I explain its origins.”
Rachel Corbett, NOVA Entertainment’s head of podcasts and digital content said: “A show hosted by best friends who have conquered the world of drag, built a business together and can run for a cab in 12-inch heels? What’s not to love?”
Brenda, Call Me! is available on the Nova Podcast Network, with a new episode launching every Thursday from Thursday 11 February.
Episodes are available wherever you access your podcasts.
