Ep. 49: Amber Tamblyn, Damien Lemon & Ani Cordero - Jan. 3,2017

Happy New Year All! Christian and Shonali have brand new haircuts and new resolutions.  A familiar audience member has lots to say about our resolutions.  Our first guest is actress, writer, poet and director Amber Tamblyn.  She comes to us with a Guinness in hand and a baby bump. We discuss her busy schedule this past year which includes a 50+ city tour promoting her own poetry book Dark Sparkler about the lives & deaths of child star actresses.  She toured along with her husband comedian David Cross and they got along perfectly on the road.  Amber is also just finishing up a film festival circuit for the upcoming April release of a film which she wrote and directed, Paint It Black, based on the Janet Fitch novel.  Wonder Woman Amber is also currently enjoying writing her first novel while expecting her first baby.   Our second guest is comedian and writer Damien Lemon.  You may have seen him on Guy Code or as the host of TruTv's Comedy Knockout but he has been performing standup for 11 years.  He knew he was funny when he was 9 years old.  He was influenced by Eddie Murphy, tours lots and always gets the racist report when going to new cities and clubs.  Christian brings up Damien's visit to The Breakfast Club.  He brings up shellfish.  For 2017, Damien says "trust your gut!"  We #GetItOffOurChest with comedian LeRonn McGowan.  Christian and LeRonn don't like to talk.  Our last guest is musician, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ani Cordero.  Ani grew up splitting her time between San Juan, Puerto Rico and Atlanta, Georgia. Growing up in a family of musicians, Ani has been playing music since she was a kid. She has performed as the drummer of Os Mutantes while also leading her own band Cordero. She is active in promoting social justice & worries about the erosion of civil liberties. Ani released her last album Recordar, an album of Latin American songs of love and protest music and is now about to release her newest album Quierido Mundo, a new album of her own political protest and love songs this coming February 2017.  Check her out singing two songs live in our sh Me Tumba and Choferito
