When you day-drink pinot grigio in 85 degree heat and you're a delicate flower of a Seattleite, what could go wrong? Worst case scenario you sleep it off under a tree because you're too embarrassed to go home. And then: time to go in to work! That's just a day in the life of our own Jen Andrews almost exactly eight years ago, and we celebrate that anniversary on this week's Little Red Bandwagon. Break out the parasol so you don't get even a little bit of heat stroke, and enjoy this month's Phyllis Phave with Christy and Jeremy.
Burn your bra and grab a copy of The Feminine Mystique, because we’re venturing into the world of One and a Half Men. Ann and Christy, along with Very Special Guest Mansplainer Bob Stein, are here to take on TBTL’s occasional treatment of lady issues. We catch up with what’s been happening in Bob’s life since the last time he joined us on LRB (Episode #91: Casserole Playing), consider how we feel about the One and a Half Men segment in general, and then dig into some clips. Are men the cause of most of women’s problems? . . .
Our pal Luke: charming, witty, fun, and ever-so-slightly unethical. From his intense desire for Charleston Chews and his childhood pal Aaron’s “muscle pullover hoodie” to helping himself to unpaid-for fast food lemonade, Luke’s always willing to share his experiences with minor larceny. And so, to celebrate these trivial transgressions, Christy and Ann are here to bring you a collection of TBTL clips about petty theft in the TBTL universe. In addition to Luke’s antics, we cover Jen’s story of a nefarious yard gnome theft ring and debate strategies for minimizing vehicular property damage. Plus, stories of our own petty thefts (and you thought we were such angels!).
In the winter of 2009, Michael Andrew Frizzell sat down with Luke Burbank and Jen Andrews of the nighttime radio show Too Beautiful To Live. That interview series has now become one of the most popular interview segments in TBTL history. Nine years later, we're going to re-package these episodes with brand new material, inside interviews, and a few special surprises.
In this episode Christy and Mike are joined by none other than Big Country, the jail dude's jail buddy, to talk about what life was like behind bars.
Oscars for everybody! Ann and Christy are joined by Kansas Ten and pop culture enthusiast Katherine Damman to talk Gilmore Girls, whether Luke could have gone wild in Branson, MO and what the heck throwed rolls are. Then we listen back to the early, early days of TBTL, when Jen Flash Andrews and KIRO movie critic Tom Tangney discuss the year’s crop of Oscar nominees, as well as their own yin and yang movie-watching sensibilities. Things we learn: Jen has an unfortunate track record of getting kicked out of movies, Diablo Cody is going to do some very big things, and The Notebook is “the outrage of all cinema”. Oh, and THE MILKSHAKE STANDS FOR OIL.
