Episode 74: Return To Burns Night

Due to popular demand, here is the Serial parody The Bartender made with her talented friends!

Every year we get together to celebrate the Scottish tradition of Burns Night, which honors poet Robert Burns. There is haggis, scotch, tartan, scotch, poems, scotch and toasts. This year Forest Ray was given the task to tell the “Immortal Memory” which revolves around a very naughty poem by Burns. So he wrote a spoof of the popular and awesome NPR podcast Serial!

Conceived by Forest Ray and Jordan Kraft, written by Forest Ray, with the vocal stylings of Forest, Jordan, Sharda Sekaran, Suparna Mukherjee, Alex Kveton and yours truly, Katharine, doing her best impersonation of the host of Serial Sarah Koenig (who is also Katharine’s cousin).

PLUS listener shout out and news about the SECOND AMAZING GUEST for the next Tell The Bartender LIVE! Also, a new episode of the advice show The Bartender co-hosts, The Struggle Bus, is up. Like the show? Tip The Bartender! Or give it 5 stars!

In this Episode:

The universe works in mysterious ways. Just ask Rosa. In a single night, Rosa was able to overcome feelings about something from her past, impress an idol, and get some sweet, sweet action. She also blows The Bartender’s mind when Rosa’s story ties into something very intimate about Katharine.
