Delusions of Grandeur: The Podcast

Delusions of Grandeur: The Podcast

Delusions of Grandeur is a weirdo best friend art collective from Canada, established by Janet and Carmen in 2013. We write, we draw, we paint, we dance, we dick…around. Now we are bringing art to the podcast scene. War. Climate change. COVID-19. The culture wars. You will find none of that here. Delusions of Grandeur is a podcast of lighthearted philosophical banter. Join Carmen and Janet as they explore topics in unprecedented depth. They aren’t afraid to ask the important questions and piss their pants laughing while doing it. Take a break from the tragedy of living and come laugh with us! Theme music written and performed by Dave Buschemeyer. (Thanks, buddy!) Instagram: Twitter: @Delusions_Grand
