Ep 42 - SK Takes A Mulligan
What does one do when a scheduled guest fails to show up and your co-host begins to espouse the nutritional benefits of foam rubber? You could pine about Valerie Bertinelli or you might even discuss the latest developments in Alcatraz's 43-year-old prison escape. But if you're SK Morton, you pretend it never happened and start over.
Such is the deluded conviction that listeners have found to be the hallmark of the Lousy San Francisco Podcast. Not content with merely functioning as a banal and tiresome exercise in self-promotion, SK finds a way to use this ill-advised affair to blame his staff, as well as his audience members, for the lack of interesting content and then proceeds to name drop his brushes with celebrity including OJ Simpson, Bill Burr, Paul Riser, Ester Rolle, and George Lucas.
Not to be outdone, Babette regales the Throng with stories of her encounters with Anderson Cooper, Gavin Newsom, Jerry Brown, Earl Campbell, and Whitman "Grady" Mayo. While, hopelessly outdone, Suzy L delivers the crowning blow with a story of her rendezvous with Queen Oprah. (Pete's met some people too but all of his stories end with an injection of penicillin)
Plans for upcoming failures are also discussed and it's decided that SK and Pete should adopt new identities and try to make a living with no-repeat work days and traffic and weather on the nines.
Still interested? How 'bout a Fresca?
