Latest Episodes

Alison's Shower Superstition, Jordan's Bread Bomb, Carlye's Kim K Meeting

ETheme Park journalist Carlye Wisel joins us for the first time and she wants to know why, if Jordan Morris is only eating two slices of bread a week, he isn't choosing what she dubs "event bread." It's a good question but the heart wants what it wants and Jordan wants Dave's Killer Bread. Fuck you, Ezekial. Alison is off her game for the second week straight. Could it be because she ran afoul of her shower superstition? Also, which is better, Disneyland or Disneyworld? And what was the last thing we all did before lockdown? Plus Caryle saw Kim Kardashian up close and it wasn't what we expected.

Ben Sheehan

EBen Sheehan is the author of OMG WTF Does the Constitution Actually Say? A Non-Boring Guide to How Our Democracy is Supposed to Work. His premise is simple: the constitution is the user manual for how our government is supposed to run—and it's a government for the people by the people meaning we're the ones who are supposed to be operating it—and yet most of us don't even know what's in this document. He’s a former producer for Funny Or Die, the Hollywood Reporter named him one of entertainment's 35 Rising Executives Under 35 and perhaps most importantly to listeners of this show, he’s engaged to be married to frequent guest Jackie Johnson. We talked about his childhood in DC and Bethesda, MD, his relationship with his brother, civics versus history, hustling, comedy, music, whether Trump can steal the election and so much more. Plus we took your questions.

Arden Myrin Week, Bops that Slap, Ken Reid's Home Studio

Arden Myrin Is Back!

EArden Myrin is comic, actor and writer. You know her as Regina Sinclair on Netflix’s Insatiable. She’s also appeared on shows like Orange is the New Black, Shameless, Chelsea Lately, Inside Amy Schumer, Gray’s Anatomy, Friends, RuPaul’s Drag Race among others. She hosts the I Heart Radio Bachelor podcast Will You Accept this Rose? and now her first book, Little Miss Little Compton, is coming out September 29 (but it’s available for pre-order now). Arden and I talked about the process of writing the book, how it morphed from a breezy beach read to something a little more serious (but still very funny!), grief, Bermuda bags, reality TV, acting, tricky parents, learning to speak up for yourself when you feel ready, relationships, checking her motives and so much more. We also answered your questions.
