Professor Blastoff: Reconciliation

If you’re gonna be Taylor Dayne, just bring it. Well, Taylor certainly brings it to this episode. The topic is reconciliation, and the gang discusses the ability to forgive and move forward in a friendship, relationship, or with one’s self. There’s also singing, Elmo, and a gay tennis bat.

This American Life: Invisible Made Visible

We wanted to alert all Professor Blastoff and Tig Notaro fans of this episode of This American Life which is now available on their website (and a great blog post that goes with it). Tig stars in the second act titled Groundhog Dayne:

Famous people are supposed to be somewhere else, invisible to us. Comedian Tig Notaro tells this story about repeatedly running Taylor Dayne, who was a pop star in the late 80s and early 90s. At the end of the story, we have a little surprise for Tig.

Well, the picture above spoils the surprise a bit, but we couldn’t resist reposting a picture of Tig dancing with Taylor Dayne.

Treat yourself to this episode of This American Life; Tig is an amazing storyteller and as usual, Ira Glass puts together one hell of a show.
