Episode 22: Bridey Elliott - March 16, 2014

Whoa! It's already St. Patrick's Day weekend - Christian and Shonali have way too much to catch up on.    We talk Riverdance, Bronies, and walking strategies for New Yorkers.  Shonali is dissed by her dad. Christian is in a TMZ phase.   Shonali bombed an audition and Christian booked his. We share diatribes on hipster diatribes.   Our special guest this episode is comedienne and actress Bridey Elliott.  She just returned from Austin, where the film in which she co-stars, Fort Tilden, just won the Grand Jury Prize at SXSW.  We talk animal handling, teen age angst, and growing up in a comedy family.  Her father is Chris Elliott, sister is Abby Elliott, and grandfather is Bob Elliott.   We also talk boyfriends, strategies for avoiding getting raped,  Siri and butt dialing.  In addition to acting, Bridey does stand up and is also performing in Absolutely, her Maude Night improv group at the UCB Theatre. We had so much fun having Bridey as our guest.  You will hear Shonali laughing the ENTIRE episode.  GAWSH! Our Episode 22 song is Sunshine Love by Rikki Ililonga.

Episode 21:  Pete Miser - January 21, 2014

Happy New Year to all our WDEK listeners. Things are off to a good start in the WDEK studios with Christian and Shonali both getting sick over the holidays.  We are having a snow storm right now.  Christian talks about story hijackers and Justin lends us his thoughts.  Parents think they are better drivers than their kids and that's a fact.  Shonali's mom sends Christian a special FB message.  Subway sightings include a dancer at Union Square platform and a man with a carryon and a tennis racquet.   Our special guest is Pete Miser, the legendary front man of Five Fingers of Funk from Portland, OR and a rapper who has released 4 full length albums of his own, while helming the board at his own Ho House studios in Tribeca. He's worked closely with Dido and Imani Coppola and is always making new music.  Pete comes bearing gifts.  This one is especially for Christian and his former thigh chafing issues (as heard on Ep. 4). Pete was a B-boy who started to rap at age 16.  He will fill you in on what's happening in hip hop today, and what's not.  Did you see the Indian dancing boy star on India's Got TAlent? Are musicians sellouts for putting their music in commercials?   Shonali is reading the Miles Davis Autobiography.   Sounds are a singular experience. You can hear them by just reading about them.  Pete makes his world debut of Hands Up 3.3 on We Don't Even Know!  Put your HANDS UP!!!!!

Episode 18:  Rashida White - October 8, 2013

Christian celebrates his birthday in a new graphical Urban Outfitters sweatshirt. Disclosure,  WDEK Ep. 18 does not cover the Government Shutdown, Miley Cyrus or twerking.   Shonali and Christian question the intentions behind gift giving. Christian is impressed by Shonali's first official home office chair with movable arm rests and lumbar support.  Shonali is screening her short film Sardines Out of A Can in NYC on Oct. 24th at Wythe Hotel.  Christian had a role on Guiding Light, better than that, he auditioned for All My Children via a self taped video and we have the proof.  The next generation of techies are gamers.   Kids today can sneak on to planes, steal SUVs and hack phones and tablets.  The empathy sucker - smartphones as per Louis CK and Christian.  Our special guest is a former Apple technician, teacher, writer, musician and DJ extraordinaire Rashida White.  Rashida and Shonali met as volunteers at Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls. Have you tried Alchemy Vegan Ice Cream.  Shonali tried to make a video letter for Bloomberg.  Our song of the episode is Lazy Soldier by Sam Jayne (Love As Laughter).
