Leisha Hailey & Kate Moennig have been hosting a weekly podcast where they chat about everything from first concerts to celeb encounters to what it was like to audition for Ilene Chaiken.
Moennig and Hailey met each other while filming Showtime’s 2004 series The L Word, where they played main characters Shane McCutcheon and Alice Piecseki, respectively.
While Moennig and Hailey played best friends on a TV series (and continue to do so in the reboot), they’ve also developed a close friendship in real life.
Pants the podcast came to fruition when Rachel Shelley (who edits and produces it) suggested Moennig and Hailey start one of their own after they appeared on PodDiva this past May.
In the first episode of their podcast, the duo said they became so close while filming the series that co-star Mia Kirshner began to describe them as a pair of pants because “You can’t have one leg without the other.”
With not much else to do in a global pandemic, the two decided to give it a go. Now featuring a host of excellent guests, PANTS has become the highlight of our week.
