In this Episode: 

Chemda and Keith, co-hosts of the Keith and The Girl podcast, were guests on this show years ago. A lot has changed. Chemda “spills the tea” about her recent divorce and why the relationship of 9 years ended, then Keith talks about a story UNFOLDING AS WE SPEAK about his dad, who recently emailed his ex wife. With her permission, Keith is now responding via email as his ex and is learning, well, a lot about his father.

Plus, The Bartender is a guest on one of their spin-off shows, My Opening Line, this week!

About The Guests:

Keith and Chemda are hosts of the Keith and The Girl podcast, recorded live daily, now in its 15th year. They’re kind of a big deal. Their podcast network also has many other amazing shows, and the two of them are the best.

Here they are looking hot af:

Thank you Brokelyn for naming us one of the 10 best podcasts in NYC!

In this Episode:

The Bartender was recently approached by a band of Gypsies. Yes, a rock band of brothers who are Gypsies. In this very special episode, we hear about what it was like growing up, what it means to be a Gypsy, and how their band, The MXT, came to be. And then one of the brothers makes The Bartender cry with a moving and inspirational story. Hide your babies… KIDDING! They don’t steal babies. But gather your hankies.

Then, The Bartender shares a short story about her encounter with a shitstain of a human garbage monster right before the interview.
