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.

In this Episode:

Liz was asked to watch a pair of very expensive Bengal cats for a week. Three months later, they were still in her home, and the owner was suspiciously jet-setting the world with her new boyfriend. Or was she? Liz accidentally embarked on a quest for said owner, a journey that involved Tijuana, background checks, monitored phone lines, and meth.

Then Earl, a musician (and The Bartender’s “prom date”), talks about the time he accidentally broke a young fan’s heart. He had a really good reason.

PLUS hear The Bartender’s attempt at commercial writing!

About the Guests:

Liz is currently an MPH student in Washington, DC and hops around from various jobs and internships. When she isn’t watching cats that do not belong to her, she cohosts the podcasts “Epilogue” which talks about books and book news. She also has a blog called “Uncorked, Unwrapped” where (when she has time…) she pairs wine and candy. Below are pics of Liz in a sweet selfie, and the cats:

Earl was born and raised in Queens, NYC and began studying classical violin at age four. In fifth grade, he was given a dubbed cassette tape of Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” that altered his perspective irrevocably, and began incorporating his love of metal and hardcore into violin playing. He’s been featured in The Strad, Strings Magazine, Vice, and Guitar World. Earl is currently a member of the experimental grindcore/metal duo Black Heart Sutra and new music/hardcore crossover string quartet seven)suns. He lives in Brooklyn, New York with his partner Jennifer DeVore and kid, and teaches music privately. Here he is looking like a badass:
