Episode 21: How to Get Great Art and Good Tables

Episode 21

On a surprisingly cultured episode, Paula and Adam explore high art and haute cuisine. Luke McKinley, Maitre d’ at the amazing Providence restaurant reveals the secrets of getting the right table and figuring out the menu. And if he were a wine, we don’t mind saying that we paired Mr. McKinley perfectly with Dr. Jennifer Greenhill, Art History Professor from USC, who helped us explore the very nature of art, from Jackson Pollock to Norman Rockwell to a toasted bagel left on a gallery floor. Plus – we debut our Department of Corrections, wherein we correct a few slight, teensy-weensy inaccuracies that may have made it onto our show.

About the show

Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone is a comedy field guide to life, or at least a set of IKEA assembly instructions. Where else can you find advice on topics from “How To Keep a Friend” to “How to Translate Your Verizon Bill?” Or even “What Do I Do If I Encounter a Bear” and “Should I Get a Penis Piercing?”

Paula and her co-host Adam Felber bring on leading expert guests and use their unique comedic sensibility to help us navigate life in the 21st century. Along the way, Paula attempts to explains existence through her kaleidoscopic perspective, and Adam tries to interject some rationality.

Paula Poundstone is a nationally known comedian, legendary for her smart spontaneous humor. She and Adam are regular panelists on NPR’s #1 show, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!
