You Might Know Her From

It’s as if we never said goodbye! Happy pride and happy summer, bbs! We are back with a very special clip show episode with brand new content featuring Wendy Makkena, Heather Matarazzo, Anne Heche, Baayork Lee, and Tichina Arnold. Wendy Makkena (Sister Act) opens our show with her uncanny impersonation of our fave Penny Marshall who directed Wendy as “All the Way” Mae in the TV series version of A League of Their Own. Heather Matarazzo (Welcome to the Dollhouse) talks to us about donning Carrie Fisher-like tinted glasses in Scream 3 and remembers working with both Debbie Reynolds and Carrie on Roseanne. Anne Heche (Six Days, Seven Nights) gives us the skinny on her dating life that included both George Clooney and the recently single Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mad fame. Baayork Lee (A Chorus Line) imagines a revival of the musical Seesaw; she danced on point and covered in balloons in the original production opposite the great Tommy Tune, And finally, Tichina Arnold (Martin) shares the pre-CGI magic of the opening scene of Little Shop of Horrors as directed by the incomparable Frank Oz. All that, plus Anne’s dad Ralph makes a surprise visit to the pod to show us why Anne is the way she is, and listener Kathy shares a real life story about Frank Oz that will make you sing.
