We did a full length live show at Union Hall and it was wonderful! Many thanks to our incredible guests Lizz Winstead (Co-Creator of the Daily Show, Activist, Awesome Person) and Michael Snow (CBS’s Survivor, also Awesome Person).

Tweet Heat: Lizz Winstead shares a story about the time she got into a bit of trouble on the Twitter machine, plus she shares a very special Minnesota story for the Macalester College alums in the house!

So Many Jeans:  Before Michael Snow knew he was gay, he tried to have sex with a woman. It didn’t go so well. And a short story about Survivor behind the scenes!

PLUS Katharine tells a story, we play “Craigslist Ad or Casting Notice” with a real life Matty Blake, and an audience member joins us for the new game, “Bar Talk”!

The Bitchy Waiter waits tables and writes about it, hysterically. He is also an actor and singer, but in order to keep his identity anonymous, I can’t link to his accomplishments. You should follow him on Twitter and Facebook. Here he is on Dr. Phil.

Oleh Zaychenko is a musician whose latest project, Bring Prudence, is amazing. You can follow on Twitter here. He is also a heck of a guy, a sweetheart, and a gentleman. Here he is jamming with American Idol’s Sanjaya.

Brooklyn based restaurateur Ted Mann always knew growing up that he was adopted. Recently he found out that his birth father wanted to meet him. Then he found out that his birth father is Ted Nugent. He shares the story of his incredible family reunion.

PLUS Katharine shares a drink recipe with a mixer by the nice people at Cocktail Crate, we play the new game, “Casting Notice or Craigslist Ad” with the help of Matty Blake from The Actors Grind Podcast, and listener shout-outs!

Ted Mann is a restaurateur and bar owner with eleven establishments. They are, in no particular order, Cebu Bar & Bistro, Apt 138, Bar 4, Matchless, Public AssemblyLone Wolf, No Name Bar, Cubana Social, Camp, Greenwood Park and the soon to be opened Park Luncheonette. Katharine has frequented many of them over the last ten years and they are all amazing. Seriously, you need to eat/drink at his establishments if you find yourself in Brooklyn.
