Simply put, this girl doesn't shut up! Away from the mic, Alana writes for her fashion blog, Renegade of Fun, plays competitive dodgeball, and is a proud pescetarian of almost two decades. Alana and Jacklyn are stoked to apply their gifts of gab to their new podcast, Black and Yellow, and are even more excited to join the ZyteHeist family!
