Episode 31 Baby Powder with guest Melissa Diaz

Is This Anything?

"Is This Anything?" is a show where four friends and professional comics (Rob Ryan, Anthony Kapfer, Brett Druck, and Jarret Berenstein) take turns pitching each other their new stand-up joke ideas. From top notch to total duds, each idea gets tagged, punched up, and riffed on until eventually it's something. On this week's episode we get into the eternal question of "do I have hands?", over-thinkers, girlfriend hypotheticals, and being a tab hoarder, with NYC comic Melissa Diaz.

Multimedia Failure 13 – Sonic the Hedgehog (1996) (with Melissa Diaz)

Multimedia Failure

Jason Arriola, Vanessa Cahill, and John Lucero  are once again joined by Melissa Diaz. This time, we’re covering something more enjoyable than her last appearance. We needed someone to be the true Sonic supporter on this episode and Melissa definitely filled that need. Thankfully, this wasn’t as rough to get through as Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture was. Like what you hear? You can support us on Patreon, listen to us on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher, Spotify, or you can subscribe here.  Why not give us a rating while you’re over on whatever podcast platform you use (or, you know, do it up on all of them because you like us). Check out our site, Games and Junk, for more podcasts and written content from us. Our theme song was composed by Megan Carnes. We got through this podcast fast so we could listen to “Green Grove” from Sonic 3D Blast by Richard Jacques.
