Ep 79 - Yes And...Sound Effects
Sometimes, out of nowhere, you get the help you need at just the right time. This was not one of those events.
This week SK scribbled something on some index cards and simply hoped it would become an entertaining podcast. Instead he ended up with a disturbing story about a creepy literature professor with two last names. With, not one but, three cancellations for the show, SK went back to a well worn tradition on the Lousy Podcast: He enlisted the throng. This week the audience in the bomb shelter was made up of two veterans, Suzy L and Mo.
The idea was to perform re-enactments of news stories that would otherwise go unnoticed among other, more astute SF based podcasts. We discussed the birth of Bruce Lee, the death of the Opera Plaza Theater, the aging of some of San Francisco's historical fire equipment, the inexperience of Uber/Lyft drivers/passengers, and a tired recap of BART's latest missteps (Which, as we all know, can get messy down there.)
Along the way we enjoy some samples from Fiddler on the Roof and Sleeping Beauty while SK presides over the usual race bating and forcible fruit ingestion that have become a staple on the show.
So, maybe it wasn't all that bad. Maybe some chicken scratch on a napkin could be turned into something of substance. That reminds me: For Sale. Baby Shoes. Never worn.
