Ep 12 - Drivel In 3 Parts
This week we do a concept piece. Envision a podcast where - rather than delighting listeners with interesting and thoughtfully conceived, well executed discussions with compelling guests - each sentence blurted out in this episode is simultaneously incoherent, a non sequitur and quite possibly offensive. Yoko Ono would be proud.
The fun starts right away with an email from long-time throng member, Suzy L who finds it necessary to critique past episodes. (Futility also being a key element in this episode)
Then, for a good time, listen to Fancy Nancy. She is willing to hang out for almost a full half hour and weigh in on things to do solo in San Francisco like staring contests with oil paintings, staring down sleeping audience members and hiking SF stairs.
The 2nd incarnation of episode 12, not unlike the Bolshevik Revolution, starts off promising but very quickly degenerates into the Trotsky's. We welcome DeYoung museum exhibit engineer, Paul Tavian. That is all.
For act 3 and after an evacuation of the bomb shelter, we're left with just two audience members, one of whom is a two-time candidate for CoCo-host, Suzy L. Suzy book ends the show with another email section where she joins Babette in a discussion about good hair and bad parenting and/or vice versa (The other way around in reverse).
At least Tony Bennett was solid. He did a duet with Yoko.
