TS207:Spiders,Orphans,Sharts,Girl Talk

| 0 comments

Erin is fresh out of Spider Gypsy class and Bryan is finally sober! Perfect timing. This week the missionaries of charity order in India banned their orphans from being adopted in fear that gay couples will snatch them up and force them into a loving and stable home....the nerve! Annie wouldn’t stand for this! Plus, Borchardt Elementary School in Texas is all about empowering women with GIRL TALK, while the boys are forced to discuss college and career in their respective guidance counselor classes. Why talk Harvard when you can talk Justin Bieber? Am I right ladies? Thigh highs for men!

Dream Bunkers!

| 0 comments

Hello Buddies! This week, Travis and Andie discuss their "dream bunkers"! From basic to extravagant, what would they want to not just survive, but comfortably wait out the apocalypse? Would they want a pool? Perhaps a room full of puppies? Maybe a walk in freezer? Or maybe just a bathroom with a door on it?! Not only that, what would they fill their rooms with to ensure that if they go insane, they do it in a very controlled way? Listen, enjoy and tell a friend!

About our guests:

DR. ROBERT HICKS, THE MÜTTER MUSEUM
"The America’s finest museum of medical history, the Mütter Museum displays its beautifully preserved collections of anatomical specimens, models, and medical instruments in a 19th-century “cabinet museum” setting." Dr. Hicks will join us to talk about Dr. Mütter and the many wonders that lay within the museum. Plus maybe he'll do medical experiments on Jesse? We'll see.

HARI KONDABOLU
“Hari Kondabolu is the comedy equivalent of a punk rock concert that breaks out at a human right’s rally. He is a truly inspirational performer who is ahead of his time and is grabbing us by the lapels to catch up with him.” W. KAMAU BELL

Show: 
City: 
New York, NY
Venue Name: 
WNYC's Greene Space

What do Chris Hardwick, Killer Mike, Andrew WK and the blog Boing Boing have in common? They knew how to make their thing.

Since 2010, Jesse Thorn has been sharing his hour-long talk, "Make Your Thing," with sold-out crowds in cities around the country and abroad. "Make Your Thing" focuses on how Thorn turned his college radio show into an independent media powerhouse, and how 12 other people, many of them his friends and colleagues, exemplify the qualities necessary to make independent artistic and career aspirations a reality in the internet age. Join Jesse as he shows that it is possible to merge the commercial world with nonprofit ideals.

After the talk, David Rees will lead an interactive Q&A session with Jesse. Please note that David Rees will be filling in for John Hodgman, who has had an unexpected conflict.
