Nightmares April 2, 2020

NIGHTMARES: Funny People, Scary Dreams w/John Ross Bowie, Robyn Hitchcock, Joyelle Nicole Johnson, Griffin Newman, Martha Plimpton, Jess Salomon and hosts Emily Flake and Kat Burdick

Join comedian and New Yorker cartoonist Emily Flake and comedian Kat Burdick as they talk to the funniest and most interesting people around about what messed up things go through their heads at night. They’ll poke around looking for deeper meaning behind that dream where you’re still in high school somehow even though you know you graduated years ago and oh god, you’ve been blowing off first period all semester – and then Emily will present each guest with artwork based on their worst nightmare, suitable for framing or ritual burning!

Drawings by Emily Flake are posted on Good Orbit site and social media. This show is a podcast normally taped monthly at KGB Bar in NYC. They have asked your help to “Save the KGB and Red Room! Donations via venmo at KGB Bar @denis-woychuk. 30% of funds received will be immediately venmo’d to our employees and you’re welcome to designate to which bartender(s) you’d like it given.”
