EPISODE 103: A WEDDING AND A FUNERAL

Like anyone who wanted to know the score of a Laker’s game while stuck in traffic on the 405, I switched over my dusty, chipped radio dial to KNX-1070, hundreds of times, sitting in my Honda Prelude, with no A/C — that’s where I heard the smooth-voiced and avuncular updates from a sportscaster who always...

EPISODE 100: MICHAEL BARBARO MAKES YOU GO HMMM

We’ve cried over the injustice of a missing college student in San Luis Obispo, we’ve laughed at Leah Remini cursing, we’ve thought about God with Pete Holmes and comedy with Jason Bateman.

EPISODE 96: THE QUEENS OF KVETCH

If you don’t like Fran Lebowitz, let me borrow a phrase from the great Ted Lasso, “that’s like Woody Allen playing clarinet.
