We come to you with our 2nd ever Live from the Epicenter of the Pandemic episode.We once again want to recognize and thank all of our first responders who are risking their lives for our communities. You are amazing! Christian & Justin coincidentally both have a book about Assholes. Hear who the assholes of this pandemic are today. This pandemic is taking a toll on all of us especially those of us in NYC and we are eager for fellowship with friends new and old w guests comedian Chelsea Peretti and hip-hop artist Jabee.
We bring back one of our most popular segments #GetItOffYourChest with guests Carrie Imberman and Susie Cangelosi! Note if you are watching the video version of the show, their zoom backdrops are gorgeous. Carrie let's you know how she feels about "pandemic homework" and Susie's apartment has become a WeWork! Shonali has some strong words for new sourdough bread bakers. Christian notes new dating tactics during this pandemic.
Our first guest is our longtime friend, comedian, actress, writer and songstress Chelsea Peretti who is staying at home in LA. Her new EP Foam and Flotsam, a concept album about her obsession with coffee was released last week and it brings us so much joy! Christian, Chelsea & Shonali talk about her new video Oatmilk, TP, wearing masks, cooking, Variety Shac and dog grooming.
Our final guest is hip-hop artist and actor, Jabee (Williams). He comes to us from Oklahoma City along with DJ Reaper. Jabee is an Emmy award winning prolific artist. We discuss his sold out musical theatrical performance about his life, throwing his kids birthday parties during a pandemic and how Chuck D is his fan. Jabee's upcoming album which due to the pandemic is probably going to be released in June 2020. Support Jabee on Spotify via the Covid19 Artist fund which directs donations on behalf artists directly to the artists themselves. Jabee performs two tunes for us live, Hands Up and Hope from his new upcoming album.
