At a time when the breaking news includes the coronavirus pandemic, Barney's shutting it doors, Harvey Weinstein sentenced to jail; We Don't Even Know Ep. 78, February 2020 starts out with even more important breaking news. Shonali & Christian completed the Whole 30 without cheating and Christian Felix has gotten lasik surgery! Most importantly they have another fantastic show with great guests along with real people sitting in a room communing together in real time.
First guests include former guests who found love on We Don't Even Know: Chelsea White and Tash Neal. Find out what chicken tenders and gas have to do with being in love! Super personal questions are asked and answered by this beautiful twosome who unexpectedly hit it off during the July 2019 live recording of WDEK. We discuss cat enthusiasm bonding and having to be on the DL when it comes to being in love in NYC.
Shonali gifts Christian with an "therworldly fragrances for earthbound souls” called the Tower by The Phoenix and The Fool. She's "full of love."
Comedian Matt Wayne comes to WDEK married but ringless. He's starting a ringless movement. Shonali won't have it. Until now, Christian and Shonali have never met a former line-cook and park ranger from Buffalo turned NYC comedian. Matt shares his deep love for NYC and Christian talks elaborate fare evasion. See Matt Wayne and Doug Smith's new comedy show, Cancel Commission at the Stand starting March 21.
Mia Juhng joins Christian and Shonali for #GetItOffYourChest. Topics include the need for lasik surgery support, food sharing parameters and gym membership recruitment tactics.
Our final conversation is with with musician, visual artist, teacher & activist JD Samson! JD tells us about her time at Sarah Lawrence as a student, how she stumbled into music (Le Tigre) and her surprising struggle with being on stage and dealing with panic attacks. Christian and Shonali are inspired by JD's activism which centers around sincerity. Songs discussed are Tres Bien (Le Tigre) and Making Art (Men). JD is now a teacher at Clive Davis Institute for Recorded Music (NYU Tisch) and is excited to help propel her students into the industry. JD's superstar student Grace Ludmila performs two songs live at Red Room, Special and The Director.
