This week I hang out with Brad Hartland, comedians Joy Lane and Marysa Mavrakys, and James Boss from Babetalk. Joy talks late nights and crazy stories doing stand up, Marysa tells us about her upcoming live comedy game show, James talks about getting into heavy music despite a strict upbringing, and we all have a rousing discussion about penises.
Lastly, Joy teaches me all about hood living and we all learn some new terminology.
In this week’s BFF episode I’m joined by Brad, Ryan, and Oli. We talk about the mob mentality of our over-offended culture, racial prejudice in the media, and unjust arrests. Then we tackle some real topics like picnic planning, the perceived value (or lack thereof) of music, and Pat joins us towards the end to talk about our ska-date to see Reel Big Fish and Less Than Jake last week.
In this episode, I spoke with media specialist and fellow Babetalk panelist, Ashley Nicole. We discuss how to get an edge when applying for jobs/internships, Ashley tells me what it’s like to work for Tumblr and Property of Zack, and we gush non-stop about Jesse Cannon.
This week I have Oli Pleydle, the founder and owner of Babetalk.tv and the Babetalk podcast that I am a panelist on. Oli tells me about how he broke into the pop punk and alternative music scene through photography and other media. We talk about still being enamored by seeing bands we love after all these years, the defend pop punk facebook group, the start of Babetalk, the racial/political divide in pop punk, what it’s like being “the black kid” at the punk show, and I butcher an Aziz Ansari bit.
