Welcome back Christian! The news today bummed us out to no end so we had to talk about it. Christian went to Haiti and all he brought back was the Missing Key Story. Our first guest is comedian, writer and Employee of the Month talk show host Catie Lazarus. Catie is an expert on germs in the gym. Christian is one on airplane germs. Catie grew up in DC with a Public Policy White House advisor father and a peace activist brother. Find out how a doctoral student becomes the "funniest resident of NYC." Shonali and leftovers don't go well together. Comedian George Gordon is from Virginia. He currently supports his comedy by bartending. What makes a great bar patron? Comedian Doug Stanhope changed George's life. He's good at doing a "tight five." #GetItOffYourChest is back with audience member and former WDEK guest Alan Yaspan! Our last guest is musician Lori Scacco. Lori and Shonali are old friends who both started their music careers in Atlanta, Georgia. Lori currently has many musical ongoing projects including her own music which she calls "highly orchestrated computer music" and her collaborations such as Storms. She recently composed music for the Joyce Theater Ballet Festival for dancer Gemma Bonds. We discuss creative identity, Atlanta, family and the legendary Clermont Lounge. Lori has an upcoming live show in October. You must go! We play an excerpt from the ballet called The Giving and the first song on her full length Storms album called Wolves and Bells.
