The Bartender is joined by herself because her computer somehow lost all of her yet-to-be-released interviews (and all of GarageBand!) so the very special Halloween episode will be up next week BUT Katharine didn’t want to leave you hanging. So, for the first time, she is releasing audio from the very personal (and hilarious!) one woman show she did 4 years ago about her (difficult relationship with her) dad. She is very nervous and needs a hug. Enjoy! Like the show? Tip The Bartender! Or give it 5 stars!
