We’re exited to kick off the new year by returning to Park Bruges with the team from Devious Maid Productions – Abby Lis-Perlis and returning guest Ayne Terceira. They give us the skinny on their new production, Eldritch’s Asylum, and their mission of breaking traditional female roles in theater. We also discuss the process of making an immersive theatrical experience for audiences, and get into our biggest influences and favorite artists.
We’re back for 2015 and kicking off our new year with a special discussion on all-things Serial. We’re joined by past guests Ben Korman and Andy Phillips, along with a special call-in appearance by co-producer Alex Murphy, to dig through our thoughts and theories on the case and discuss just what made this podcast so enticing. Also discussed: the changing face of the legal system since Adnan’s prosecution, our favorite pop-culture endings, and where Serial (and podcasting) go from here.
This episode is (not) brought to you by Mail Chimp. (Kimp?)
We’re back in Mary’s own kitchen with a home-cooked brunch with her partners in sketch comedy, James Jamison and Ben Korman of The Big Deal. We get into our biggest comedic influences and the process of writing, producing, and performing a sketch comedy. Also: the comedic undertones of the X-Files, the great Yam vs. Sweet Potato debate, and the traumatic grade school experiences that made us who we are today. As a bonus, Mary’s roommate, Andy, stops by to make this episode dirtier than necessary.
We’re in Upper Lawrenceville trading stories with blogger and podcaster Genevieve Barbee, aka the AP Collector. She shares her journey into the world of story collection and why it’s important to at this point in Pittsburgh’s history. Also: breaking off your expected path in life, territorial Pittsburgh neighborhoods, and Genevieve’s emotional experience at the US Mint.
We’re thrilled to have back one of our favorite guests, Tara Sherry-Torres of Cafe Con Leche, for this special, bite-sized episode.

Also discussed: What other great december holidays are there? Are we both taking on too many projects? And was anyone else let down by the end of Harry Potter?
