This week, it’s a special podcast episode taped LIVE at the Now Hear This podcast festival! Davy Rothbart, host of the acclaimed “Found” podcast, tells us about heart-warming root canals… “Gilmore Guys” co-host Demi Adejuyigbe tries to convert Brendan and Rico into, well, “Gilmore Guys”… The OC Weekly’s Gustavo Arellano pushes buttons left and right… And humorist Annabelle Gurwitch pities a certain Egyptian princess, before leading our illustrious etiquette panel.
We recently stumbled across this and we're excited to share. It was found in the basement of a home in Arlington, Virginia, and... well, you're just going to have to listen to find out more about this astonishing discovery.
Normally during Small Talk, we have a newshound share their favorite under-the-radar story. For our show at the Now Hear This podcast festival, we welcomed to the stage one of the most delightful bomb-throwers in Southern California journalism -- Gustavo Arellano. He's the publisher and editor of the OC Weekly. He breaks down the trend of “Columbusing” in the culinary world, before explaining why that “door close” elevator button is just for your mental health.
Davy Rothbart is probably best known for his wonderful pieces on "This American Life" and for his magazine Found. The latter has been turned into a musical and, most recently, a hit podcast. In the audio above and the text below, Davy explains how he made the jump from magazine to podcast and shares a few astonishing tales from the show.
In a couple of weeks one of TV's most beloved recent dramas is getting a reboot on Netflix. The show is "Gilmore Girls." The revival, consisting of four 90-minute episodes, premieres on the November 25th on Netflix. So, to educate our hosts about the show and to attempt to get non-viewers excited about it, we enlisted the help of Demi Adejuyigbe, co-host of the hit podcast "Gilmore Guys."
We chat with Annabelle Gurwitch, who you may know her from her appearances on TV shows like "Seinfeld," and "Dexter," or as host of the TBS series "Dinner and a Movie,” before having all of our guests pile on stage to answer our audience dilemmas ranging from public flossing to, yes, chocolate pizza.
