Podcast co-hosts Brooke Miccio and Danielle Carolan have taken the content creation world by storm — here’s the scoop.
Along with mic’ing up as co-hosts of Gals On the Go podcast — a top-rated, Gen Z-minded lifestyle podcast – they each have successful YouTube channels with nearly 840K subscribers, collectively.
One of the reasons they’ve garnered such a large following? They’re part of the upbeat NYC scene and always share their thoughts on love, life and most-cherished products you need to buy — quite literally — right now.
“We want you to feel like you’re sitting on the couch with your girlfriends,” Miccio told the New York Post. “We talk about everything from beauty and fashion to product recommendations to advice on dating and relationships.”
That said, the gals are open to talking about virtually everything, giving their audience a weekend recap, sharing NYC restaurants they love to dine at and catering to what their listeners (and now, viewers!) like to tune into week after week.
In tandem with their passions for content creation, Gals On the Go podcast recently launched a video component to its popular streaming medium, allowing users to tune in (perhaps with one of our favorite streaming devices) and watch the gals sitting on their too-cute mauve couch, in front of the trendy neon sign peeping the show’s name.
“Girl Talk” episode for Gals On the Go podcast, the top-rated lifestyle show hosted by content creators Brooke Miccio and Danielle Carolan.
“We like incorporating seasonal topics for our listeners, especially during the holidays with gift guide season,” Carolan shared over video chat. “Now that we have the video component, which went live after I moved to NYC, we’re happy to have a studio space that we love to record in.”
Naturally, Miccio and Carolan share their favorite products, from retinol creams and serums to flattering bodysuits. Now, after reigning that “main character energy” that comes with living in NYC apartments, both gals have some more products to share.
“We cater to our NYC audience, naturally, because we share places to go and things to see,” Miccio shared. “But, we have international viewers, too, so we try to give everyone a mix of engaging content.”
