Old Man Pod

Burt Carlson and Abe Garvin are usually friends, sometimes enemies, and always old men. These two fellas have seen it all, from Jesus Christ to trap music. Somehow, they got a weekly show with a local radio station where they can riff and tell stories with guests and yell at their intern (producer), Dustin.

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Podcasts - Mary-Alice McNab

Mary-Alice McNab met her husband during a podcast recording in San Francisco. Luckily, the perpetual bachelors, Abe and Burt, make it out of this show without tying the knot. She’s also got a one-person show, Sexodus, where you can “discover how this good Christian girl left the church to find her sexual freedom and landed in the marriage bed, still longing for liberation”. Then we get a visit from Mary-Alice’s grandmother, also named Mary-Alice, who’s looking for a male suitor to take her to the country club.

Arts & Farts - Kevin McNair

We’re back with Kevin McNair to talk about photography, music, and theatre (don’t you dare spell it “theater”). We touch on pretty much every musician, every music festival, and why you should never eat the brown acid. Then we welcome in Michael Governs III, a theatre director from Stratford, Connecticut who definitely DID NOT burn down the local Shakespearean theatre. No arsonists over here.

Unleash The Demon - Sonia Nam

Poinsettia Marbles is a multi-talented impressionist and ventriloquist. She can do spot-on impressionists of the greats. You know, Marcel Marceau, Al Roker, and Matlock. But watch out, she’s possessed by a demon named Asarof, with an “f”. You never know who you’ll get in this one. It could by Poinsettia, it could be Asarof, it could be a dummy named Linda, but never Sonia. What happened to episode 14? Into the void, I suppose.
