Katy Dolle

Hey Buddies! Hope all is well with you! It sure has been one heck of a week, huh? We have a question for you, WYP travel backwards in time or forwards in time? Do you have any plans for your bug out vehicle? Might we suggest a dolphin boat? Perhaps you would prefer a modded smart car? For my money, I think i'm gonna go with a personal helicopter! Our Buddy in The Bunker this week is Katy Dolle! Katy chats with us about the recent marches and we get a little political! Warning: Things get a little heavier than normal. Not only do we talk politics, there discussions of rape and abuse as well. We understand if you'd rather skip that! Otherwise, enjoy the show and don't forget to share!

The Greatest Generation Ep 105: Werebear PTSD (S5E6)

| 0 comments

When Commander Riker returns from holiday on Risa, he's totally obsessed with playing "Suck Disk." But when Wesley (The Boy?!) sees how dumb-looking the glasses are, he turns his sights on an age-appropriate co-worker instead. Which sexual subculture are you into if you display a horga'hn AND credit cards? What color is Worf's apron? How many Coogi sweaters are in Wesley's closet? It's the episode where we've given up dessert flirtation games!

Still Buffering: How to Birth Control

Show: 
Still Buffering

In this week's very timely episode, the sisters discuss a somewhat more sensitive topic (and one that makes Rileigh very uncomfortable at times), birth control. Since birth control is a phrase most all teenagers have had to hear or even experience at some point in their lives, the sisters thought this discussion would shed some light on the stigma and social acceptability of birth control throughout the years. Also, there's a lot of butt talk this episode so...there's that.

HEEEEYYYYYYYYY DO YOU ALL LIKE CORRRRRRRRNNNNN?!?!?! This is a Corn-heavy episode, because the Bachelor has become a television show that's exclusively about Corn, and her wayward journey to find love.

Laurie Kilmartin on parenthood, losing her father, and her new SeeSo comedy special

Comedian and writer Laurie Kilmartin is probably best known as one of the finalists on the 7th season of Last Comic Standing. She has also written 2 books and has been nominated for a Primetime Emmy award. Last year, Laurie's 83 year old father was diagnosed with cancer. She had to take time off from her dream job as a staff writer on Conan O’Brian’s late night show and flew up to visit her father in Northern California as much as she could. During the months of her father's declining health, she took to Twitter writing jokes about her experience of losing a parent to cancer.

She talks to Jesse about her new SeeSo comedy special called 45 Jokes About My Dead Dad. She gets candid about what it’s like to lose a parent and how instrumental Twitter was in coming to grips during the process.

You can find more information about how to stream her special here.

Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi on their new TV Land show Throwing Shade and how to be funny without being offensive

Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi are comedians, writers, actors, and podcast hosts. They met in 2010 as writers for Current TV, a news channel that was created by Al Gore and Al Jazeera. Erin covered feminist issues while Bryan covered the LGBTQ beat. In 2011, when Current TV closed its doors, Erin and Bryan knew that they still had more to say so they decided to start the Throwing Shade podcast hosted by Maximum Fun.

In studio with Jesse, they discuss their origin story, the differences between making podcasts and TV, and how to have a sincere and funny opinion without being offensive.

You can watch Throwing Shade on TV Land every Tuesday evening at 10:30/9:30c.

The Outshot: The Simpsons move to Cypress Creek

This week, Jesse tells us what an almost 20 year old episode of The Simpsons has to do with Silicon Valley, and why we should care.

Hello babies!

Welcome to the other side of the looking glass! We’re discussing how our lives have changed post-inauguration. We’re not on social media a lot, so if you’ve tried to slide into our mentions we might have missed you. We’re wasting less time on Twitter, but that time is well spent thinking about how La La Land is so terrible. On Chunch Chat, Martha Stewart has been quite withholding of Chunch news. Alternatively, Lady Gaga was recently spotted riding her Arabian mare Bailey Ann. On Wiki of the Week, we read the page for “Gay and Lesbian Kingdom of the Coral Sea Islands,” or The Gay Kingdom of the Coral Sea. I want to go to there! We welcome Matt Braunger, who we talk with about his cousin’s book The Disaster Artist. Required reading for fans of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room. On Expert Hour, millennial funeral curator Hunter Barry joins us to talk about the business of being remembered.
