Guest co-host Jordan Clifford joins Shonali for Episode 61 while Christian Felix is in Singapore doing who knows what. Jordan helps Shonali analyze her disgusting dream. Our first guest is actress, dancer, comedian Sunita Mani. Shonali and Sunita are family friends. Jordan and Sunita were in the same crew together in college at Emerson College. Jordan tried to make Sunita cry once. We discuss Sunita's success as an actress (Mr. Robot, GLOW) and if it has gone to her head. Look for Sunita in No Activity. Out of nowhere, a podcast protestor interrupts our show! Our second guest is comedian, writer & producer Myka Fox. Myka just celebrated her birthday and Shonali forces Myka to tell a depressing story about a specific past birthday. Find out whether Myka ever had an ex-boyfriend help her move? Myka has the best Twitter account & you must follow her. Check out Myka's Friday night weekly show at the Cobra Club called Live From Outer Space. Sidenote: Have you seen the PBS documentary on Maya Angelou? It's on Netflix now. Ep. 61 Get It Off Your Chest is with audience member Ricky Trabucco. We have some good ones: airplane boarding eagerness, people with clipboards & purchasing lottery tickets. Our final guest is musician Shannon Wright. Shannon is a guitarist, pianist, singer-songwriter and her performances are raw, emotional, breathtaking and powerful all at one moment. Shonali & Shannon are long time friends who just discovered they both sold ice cream and were accused of stealing as adolescents. Shannon is shy. Shannon is a prolific artist who is starting work on her 11th solo album. She is adored by the likes of Jordan Clifford, Steve Albini, Yann Tiersen and recently composed the music for French director Guillaume Nicloux's To The Ends Of The World. Listen to Shannon Wright perform Avalanche live at We Don't Even Know.
