Apr 5, 2016
It's March and 2016 is full in effect. Christian and Shonali get some serious things off their chests. The Man Bun (more like a Man Bud) phenomenon sweeping the country irritates Shonali. An audience member explains the origin of the man bud hair-do came from. Christian is heckled at his own dinner party. By the way the heckler is back! Christian talks tupperware. Our first guest, Starlee Kine, is the creator and host of the #1 iTunes podcast Mystery Show. Starlee in her best vintage NBC wear teaches us so many things. Starlee explains what "normcore" is for Shonali's mom in Nashville. She also gives great advice for anyone expecting to make a tv appearance. We want to "ship" two people together. Dennis from Ticketmaster in Texas, please contact us - we are all looking for you. Our next guest, comedian and actress Janeane Garofolo has a new backpack. We talk about purchasing presentable pieces of clothing, AARP and Chris Christie's curves. Flat front vs pleats. Christian gets his Janeane - Fight Club and Scream stories all wrong. Janeane thinks she was foolish for being interviewed by Bill O'Reilly five times. What are your feelings on James Spader and gentrification? Our final guest is the multi-talented pianist, comedian, cabaret entertainer & actor Mark Nadler. Mark comes from Iowa and started to perform professionally at the age of 10. Although he almost had a heart attack when he saw Shonali's little plastic keyboard, he manages to play some of his wonderful music for our audience. One of Mark's greatest musical influences is not a person but an animated character. Guess who? In addition to playing at HiFi on a shitty keyboard on Avenue A, Mark has played in Carnegie Hall on a 10ft long gigantic piano. Check out Mark's PBS specialE or see Mark live in person at his monthly gig at Pangea in the East Village. Thanks to all of you for listening! Our next show is Wednesday, April 20th! Until then enjoy all of our episodes on Facebook, Tumblr, iTunes and Stitcher Radio.
