Ep. 39: Roger Clark, Patricia Clarkson & Matt Higgins w Guest host Katina Corrao - Jan. 26, 2016

Happy New Year everyone!  We dive into 2016 with special guest co-host comedian Katina Corrao along with our special guests:  NY1's Roger Clark, super star actress Patricia Clarkson and comedian/actor Matt Higgins. Our venue for our podcast is HiFi bar in the East Village and it was filled with guests ancy to get out of their homes after being cooped up over the weekend due to Jonas, the second biggest recorded snow storm in NYC.  Shonali touches on the loss of David Bowie, Glenn Frey, Clarence Reid and Lemmy of Motorhead.  Katina doesn't listen to any of those artists. Katina and Shonali did watch Netflix during the snowstorm.  Our first guest is a reporter on Shonali's favorite network, NY1.  Roger Clark was lucky enough to cover the unplowed streets of NYC and talk to all the complainers. Roger, a pizza box and snow = 2,000 views instantaneously on FB.   Shonali is dying to know what goes on behind the scenes of NY1.  Let's start a Roger Show. Dynasty, Falcon Crest, Dallas - which one does Roger NOT watch?  We have Emmy Award winning and Oscar nominated actress Patricia Clarkson join us uncensored.  Like Shonali, Patti is a southern gal, a NY1 watcher and loves Roger Clark.  What was Patti's coming of age music? She goes on and on about Jasper, Shonali's husband which Shonali loves! Katina raves about Patricia's amazing comedic performance in Motherlover.  When Patricia talks about the snow you just want to melt.  Find out what question Christian asks her via letter which causes her to jump off of her stool.  Look for her starring in the film Learning to Drive with Sir Ben Kingsley. Our last guest is comedian actor performer Matt Higgins.  He is an improv master and auditions for commercials, like Shonali and Katina but unlike Patricia Clarkson. Do you know what state the Grand Canyon is in?  Have you ever seen someone do Alphabet improv? Well listen to the master.  Should Matt's new granddaughter call him PeePaw? We think so.  Duct tape makes Matt a dreamboat dad.  And that's a wrap!  Follow us on Twitter @WDEKpodcast and on Facebook.

Ep. 38 - David Cross, Dolly Wells & Will Sheff - Dec. 29, 2015

This is Christian and Shonali's last WDEK of 2015. They had a great 2015 BUT the Happy Holidays weren't so happy for one of their audience members who thinks Shonali and Christian are too positive. Ep. 38 first guest is comedian, actor, writer and director David Cross.  David has maintained his success for a long time.  Shonali believes David's success has something to do with promptly answering emails. Which do you think is David's favorite thing to do:  stand up, acting, editing, writing, or directing?  David's holiday party was intense.  Check out Jon Benjamin and David's Icelandic Blue on YouTube.  The third and last season of David's show Todd Margaret comes out this week.  In the Christmas spirit, David leaves us with words about Jesus. The second guest on WDEK is Shonali's latest girl crush; actress and writer Dolly Wells of HBO's Doll & Em.  Dolly and Shonali take shoe pics together.  Dolly moved to Brooklyn recently from England and explains (Americans) our differences. She loves Jordan.  Dolly created her HBO show with her very best friend, successful actress Emily Mortimer. The show was huge in England. Dolly's kids, her husband and her mother are all cast within the show.  Dolly says she and Emily once took 9 years to write a script for a screenplay.  She inspires us all to shoot a pilot instead of writing treatments.  In addition to requesting another season of Doll & Em from HBO, look for Dolly in the show Blunt Talk with Patrick Steward and a very tiny part in the movie 45 Years.  Ep. 38 musical guest is songwriter, musician and leader of Okkervil River, Will Sheff.   Will's band started out in Austin, Texas where he worked at a video store and played music in his house.  After he was written up in Rolling Stone, everything changed for his father. Will sings an unreleased song that he did lots of research on called Famous Tracheotomies.   Find out why Will and Shonali are fellow fans of the Rock*A*Teens.  Will plays Car and Driver from the Rock*A*Teens - Sweet Bird of Youth.  Have you heard of the musician David Wiffen?  David Cross joins the discussion and shares his new favorite musician, from the 1970's, Chic Clerggg from Greenland.  Yeah, he's exactly who you think he is.  Happy New Year everyone!
