If you listen to Spotify podcasts, here are some to add to your list. Each of the podcasts are part of a series with numerous episodes.
1. “Podcast But Outside” with hosts Andrew Michaan and Cole Hersch
These two entertainers sit outside at different locations with a table and microphones, but no camera person (though you can find their videos on youtube). They ask random bypassers if they would like to talk on their podcast and once they are done talking they give them a dollar.
Andrew and Cole usually go to places they pick, but you can book them at your weddings if you go to their website. Every single one of their episodes are very amusing due the unpredictable guests and situations.
