If you’ve listened to our show at all, then you know how much we love Aly Cardinalli—as a performer, a choreographer, a friend, he is awesome and we were so excited to have the opportunity to feature him as our first official Burlesque Moms guest!

Hailing from the middle of nowhere, Texas, where Bourbon Layne was also hiding, Aly joined us in this episode to talk about building a performance community, gaining inspiration, his work in psychic development and witchcraft, and yes, to rid Bourbon Layne, once and for all, of her curse.
