Lacks depth

Catherine sounds like a lovely, heartfelt jovial person, but the stories portrayed here were lacking any real comedic impact.
The whole thing ended up feeling like it was like a grown up version of a children’s daytime tv show, especially since she has that kind of voice adults put on when talking down to a child, which in itself was especially weird when talking about going through menopause.

I’m not exactly sure who this audio series’s audience is supposed to be, but it surely isn’t for the more seasoned or sophisticated comedy fan or someone looking for opportunities to laugh out loud.

I hope Catherine finds her niche/audience that better makes use of her upbeat demeanour and go getter attitude.

The pick-me up with a side of coffee...

I so needed this podcast on my work commute this morning. Fictitious hilarious Imminent Disaster stories that are dead-ringers for what I've experienced in my life,... that made me nod my head (yes), laugh, smile, and reminisce, as I drove into work this morning. This podcast is what you'll need with your side of coffee. Catherine Hernandez says what you're thinking, what you wished you said outloud, and her great story telling abilities has you imagining all of the scenarios. You even find yourself talking back and clapping with laughter. I can not recommend this podcast enough. Imminent Disaster deserves more than 5 stars!
