It’s a special podcast mashup this Christmas when the venerable Ira Glass joins Tig, David and Kyle on the Bell House stage in NYC. Tig and Ira discuss their questionable “fun things to do for free” in any city, including insulting unsuspecting strangers on the street and purposely misinforming partygoers. Armed with disturbing clips from This American Life, Ira tests the gang’s gag reflexes and improvises a few characters before debating the merits of forced political and religious conversions. Break out your magic Mormon underwear and cool beer for this unforgettable holiday episode.
We’re back in the hatch for a chat about Mayans. Tig, David, Kyle (via internet magic), and Aaron share their thoughts on the predictions of the end of the world, describe the Mayan calendar (with the power of Wikipedia), and swap stories of exploring the wilderness in their youth. Plus, Kyle plays us a Christmas song he’s been working on and Tig tells us about her past infatuation of hieroglyphics!
Become dear friends with Lake Bell and listen carefully as she drops by the makeshift hatch to discuss all things voice. Lake tells us about where her obsession with voice began, the vocal fry fad among women, and her movie based on voice & sound called “In a World.” We then clear our throats and try to find our normal voices. Jump up and down, turn around, tell your friends you love them so!
Ever wondered how that ol’ noggin of yours works? You have? That’s great because we have an expert on brains, comedian Jono Zalay! He will guide us as we examine all the parts of the brain, explore the myth that women have smaller brains, and talk about cocaine rats.
You’d be surprised how often you tell the truth. Actress Missi Pyle joins Tig, Kyle, David, and Aaron to talk about being honest. Missi tells us about her problem with lying as a child, struggling with kitten lies, and how Karma & poo lead her to stop lying. Every one also shares stories of stealing as children, wetting the bed, and perform a scene from bare: The Musical! Honestly, this episode is nothing short of extraordinary!
