We’re trading in our bat for a hoop this week, as Cricket Wampler joins us for Episode 92! Wampler is one of the breakout stars of Disney Plus’ new sports dramedy Big Shot, and her portrayal of Samantha “Giggles” Finkman has earned her All-Star acclaim among audiences everywhere.
In her very first podcast appearance, Wampler takes us through some of the success she’s enjoyed as a leading player for the show and how Giggles came to be in very unconventional production circumstances. The way she developed her character spans anything from honing her skills as a point guard to developing an entire back story for Giggles while on retreat in San Diego. Wampler’s sense of humor is on full display in this conversation, and her stories are nothing short of awesome. She even discusses her recent performance alongside John Stamos and The Beach Boys at Petco Park!
