RACHEL BUTERA podcast excerpt: "For people who know the Howard Stern Show, I competed in the 2010 Staff Impressions Contest. I did Tracey Millman, who used to work on the show and she used to call everybody a 'douche.' And Little Lupe, the star. And Underdog Woman, the woman who wears the cape and dances around in parades like Underdog."
