The Mandys Take The D Train

The latest episode of The Mandcave finds co-hosts Mandy and Mandy diving into the comedy The D Train. Mandy assigns the indie film, convinced its boundary-pushing humor around sexuality will delight her co-host. Will the movie bomb for Mandy in her search for warmth in her cringe comedy?

“I like to explore sexuality in dangerous, unseen ways,” says Mandy in what has to be a perfect litmus test for some sort of undiscovered maladaptive behavior.

Through it all, the Mandys offer a storytime about their own high school reunions and hijinks. Some questions answered include: How do you prank call a teacher? How often did you successfully use your fake ID? And how easy is it to fake your mom’s signature?

OK, ok, you know you did this stuff, too. But don’t worry, this week’s episode has a not-too-secret method for absolution buried in it! But you have to listen VERY closely… all the way to the end… or you might miss it! (It’s Project Angel Food. And you should pause the podcast and sign up to do it yourself, too. Seriously.)

The only podcast hosted by best friends who have nothing in common except their names.

Mandy Kaplan and Mandy Fabian are both Mandys, and both best friends, but that's where their commonalities end. MandCave is the podcast that lives between them.
