Episode 60: Mothers Day Edition

8May

This week hosts Maggi Mayfield and David Earl Waterman call on their moms to share an important song before they share a song about their moms. Not only do we learn that both mothers are incredibly similar, but both moms surprise the heck out of our hosts with stories Maggi and Dave have never heard before!

 

First we call David's mom, Barbara where she shares stories of protesting in Ithica, NY. Then we talk to Maggi's mom, Libby, where we learn about a very memorable Fourth of July weekend in Washington, DC.

Episode 57: Harry Howard

17Apr

This week's episode features Harry Howard, an up and coming super star actor who runs his own podcast called "Podcrashers with Harry Howard," a talk show "Harry And Kelly," and also runs the studio space that this episode was engineered in: Global Voice Broadcasting. 

Harry BROUGHT his #Fave5 songs with him (which you can read all about the juicy YTunes Shuffle Nuggest on his music here.)

We discover that Harry uses his music to meditate and really formulate was he wants out of life. He talks about envisioning his professional future, what college was like when you start your own fraternity, and how past mistakes as an intern helped shape his current humble and grateful attitude. He also describes what he wants out of a romantic relationship with a very surprising song.

Then we head to Stratford-upon-Avon for Band Or Bar. See if you can guess it correctly as well! Harry dives into his First Concert and then tells the tale of his Last Concert before we learn how to connect with him on Instagram and Twitter.

Episode 56: Fiona Goodwin

3Apr

Fiona Goodwin spent some quality time with the show despite being a very busy comedian working on debuting her One Woman Show: "A Very British Lesbian."

Fiona brought her Fave 5 songs and shared all about how she grew up in the English countryside. Her songs wove us through stories of being a high schooler looking for an answer to why she was attracted to women. Instead, she found a friend who introduced her to the church. She studied for years and travelled all over the world on missions running from her truth. Fiona details an exorcism performed on her, falling in love on the set of a church play, and road tripping all over Europe with the love of her life.

Band Or Bar takes us to Berkley, CA and then Fiona dives into her very surprising First Concert before rounding out the show with the Last Concert story.

The entire episode was recorded on Easter so there is a running joke about Fiona's obsession with Cadbury's Eggs. Hope you enjoy the episode.

She talks about the significance of David Bowie on the world, and how it's never to late to cross items off a bucket list. She rounds out her Fave 5 songs with a song that puts words to the feeling of sending your kid off to college and what songs and composers seem to have the pulse of what human longing sounds like.

Season 2 comes to a close with a whopper of a guest, Danny Vermont! He is a comedian and writer and you might recognize his work from "Real Time With Bill Maher," "Politically Incorrect," and "Pauly Shore's Pauly-tics."

 

We jump right into how Danny and Dave met...and then reconnected (without Facebook). His 5 songs bring us mostly back to the good old college days in Ithica New York. We learn about Danny's high school years, his first open mic experience, how one famous comedian inspired him to go to college, growing up with a mom as a school teacher and about the dark secrets of Los Angeles.

5Dec

Wolfie Trausch is a Los Angeles native who started acting at the age of 8! He has since moved into the voice over world and when he isn't working as a voice actor, he makes extra cash as a voice over casting director and teaches seminars.

 

We dive right into his Fave 5 songs where we learn all about his non-existent musical upbringing. His parents were both teachers and made it difficult for him to ditch classes...but we do learn about the music he and his dad had in common and how he not only met his current b/f on Tinder, he is teaching his mom how to use the app too! 

The group gets into an incredible discussion about weed and edibles in modern times and then Wolfie shares a song that he started listening to because he thought his crush was super into it. 

 

We go to Croatia for this week's episode of Band Or Bar before learning about a really embarrassing Guilty Pleasure. Wrapping up the show with First Concert and Last Concert....Wolfie's story is sweet and really just getting started. He is not a character to be missed. Follow him on Instagram!
