Ep 7:BUGS! BUGS! BUGS!!!!

We got bugs to show you and bugs to warn you about. Blythe loves a chill roach and Madelyn admires aphids as feminist heroes. Jaboukie Young-White, Bennet Ferris, and Harris Mayersohn scramble around and are generally freaky-deaky but also tell jokes. Plus scientist Christine Johnson from the AMNH with expertise on parasites and their hosts, with a specialization on slave-maker ants.

Ep: 6 This show was so good that after this show a bunch of Sloan Kettering administrators asked for my autograph. We delighted them and probably the audience with dreadful facts about CANCER. Did you know that the doctors that invented chemotherapy tried to poison their young patients with anything they could think of including mustard gas? Did you want to know? Sachu Ezura and John Reynolds yummed our yucks, too.

Book Club is a comedy variety show where hosts Colin Stokes and Blythe Roberson (The New Yorker, The Onion), along with some of NYC’s best comedians, read the books so you don’t have to. Held monthly at Union Hall.

Book Club decides to take it easy for once, so we read a children’s book: Nancy Drew and the Clue in the Diary. Discussion topics include: how rich is Nancy? Is Ned actually hot? And why the hell is everyone so mean to Bess?

With: Jen Spyra, Nore Davis, Joe Zimmerman, Rebecca O’Neal and your lovely hosts Colin Stokes and Blythe Roberson

Live sound and recording by Harry Scott. Produced and edited by Shannon Manning.
Recorded live January 27, 2018 at Union Hall.

This month we’re psychologists. And you have to pay us $225/hr to be told that you’ll swim faster if you tell yourself you’re terrific. So pony up, kiddo. Kings and queens of Brooklyn Mitra Jouhari, Alex Watt, and Zach Zimmerman floor us with giggling.
