X Factor: After The Factor Podcast, Episode 01

Topics approached include the drudge of wading through the bad-but-not-terrible contestants, the early backstories, the arrival of Fare Thee Well, aka #KiwiHaim and the shocking decision to deny Trend Prince more of the screen time they so richly deserved.
