Stephen Sondheim's Assassins, Original Off-Broadway Recording with Rachel Bloom

EThe ever so talented and brilliant Rachel Bloom joins Deborah and Joel to give a standing ovation to Stephen Sondheim’s Original Cast Recording of Assassins. The conversation starts with a couple of not great massage stories and moves to swooning over Sam Cooke. Rachel then tells us how she went to an open-air school near the beach in SoCal where everything was sunny and surf-forward. Perfect right? Well, no. Peel back the curtain and you’ll see some darkness. She navigated some mental illness, bullying and a real real complicated, deep, angsty relationship that could only have started with a shared love of Sondheim. Great stuff happened but obsession did too, and she cake-walked her way to the inevitable and disappointing relationship’s end. But, in this epilogue, Rachel looks back with insight, self awareness and perhaps an even stronger love for Sondheim. Well, his work. Not necessarily...the man. As Deborah says, “Don’t meet your heroes.” But we also discover Rachel wants so badly to start a Klezmer band and has a healthy respect for the impending earthquake apocalypse in Southern California. Let’s just say she’s prepared. As Deborah says, “Meet your heroes!” These particular songs are Daft Punk’s “Nightvision” and “Bring it On Home To Me” by Sam Cooke..

Kanye West's The College Dropout with Ego Nwodim

EThe talented and hilarious - and in another life, AR rep - Ego Nwodim sits down with Deborah and Joel to share her love of (sigh, oh Kanye) Kanye West’s debut album, College Dropout. They talk about how the complexities of the man make it difficult but not impossible to gush over this incredible album. This is what it’s like to mourn for an artist who’s..still alive. Find out what Ego did in the middle of an improv practice years ago that Deborah never forgot. Listen to Joel hit the non existent ‘r’ on “gangsta” so white he turns into Mitt Romney. Deborah reveals the “Summer of Deborah” which leads us to how “look him up, girl!” does not always end well. You’ll also hear what the 100% bonkers (yet most likely) scenario would be if the three of them ever ran into each other in a strip club. You’re invited too! See ya’ll at Magic City! These particular songs are Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up” and “Back on the Chain Gang” by The Pretenders. Subscribe, Listen, Enjoy Rate and Review!

The Hothouse Flowers' People with Jason O'Mara

EActor Jason O’Mara joins Deborah and Joel in the Los Feliz equivalent of an Irish snug to share his love for the Hothouse Flowers’ first album, People. The most successful debut album of an Irish band in Irish history set up the perfect concert with perfect music during the perfect summer for Jason. They talk about high school turmoil, rugby and the saxophone - the most “jacuzzi” of instruments. They all connect over Irish soul music, how being a teenager is hard and what it’s like to be an adult and have no skills whatsoever. :( Someone PLEASE typecast Joel. These particular songs are Arlo Guthrie’s “City Of New Orleans” and “Hairshirt” by R.E.M. Subscribe, Listen, Enjoy Rate and Review!

Hole's Live Through This with Bryan Safi

EThe hysterical, smart and fun Bryan Safi sits down with Deborah and Joel and unleashes his love for Hole’s “Live Through This.” They all agree this album ROCKS. They talk about the trashy mosaic herself (Deborah Tar-...sorry, Courtney Love) and the, let’s say, messed up circumstances surrounding this album’s release. Bryan shares what it was like growing up having religious parents, a very popular brother and feeling like an outsider in El Paso, TX. Well, Bryan was popular too but his brother was off the charts popular in middle school. But the Bette Midler/Whitney Houston fan stumbled upon this album, liked the cover because it looked like it was from a beauty pageant, asked his mom to buy it for him, took it home, started playing it and was like, “WHAT??!!!??” The young man now had a dirty secret. They also talk about milk because if you listen to this album eventually you just talk about milk. These particular songs are “Nobody’s Baby Now” by Nic Cave and the Bad Seeds ...

Radiohead's In Rainbows with Demi Adejuyigbe

EThe hilarious, charming, and impressive in so many ways Demi Adejuyigbe joins Deborah and Joel to discuss his love for Radiohead’s In Rainbows. Once again the subject turns to “sad music” and the struggle with it being a pejorative term. Demi reveals how he willed himself to be a Radiohead fan through the only research that matters - listening to their entire body of work over two weeks. He gave each album two days and what a relief it is that he gave them another shot after Pablo Honey. Where was Joel born? It’ll blow Deborah’s mind. They talk about how funny Thom Yorke is. What? You have to take our word for it because, like Radiohead, this podcast has two geniuses. Find out how guitarist Ed O’Brien affirms his identity in the song “Weird Fishes.”*...*He doesn’t. This episode brought to you by Grape Nuts. Listen to find out what that means! These particular songs are Tom Waits’ “Falling Down” and “Slow Show” by The National.

The Velvet Underground's The Velvet Underground with Brian Huskey

EActor, writer, photographer, musician, Charlotte, NC native Brian Huskey shares the profound impact The Velvet Undergound’s self-titled third album had on him. Deborah warns us to not first hear “The Murder Mystery” in the In-n-Out drive-thru while your infant daughter is in the back seat. Joel reveals how very very passionate his high school band was about not playing a particular song. They talk about primitive art, the art you make as an undergrad and how accidentally close it is to comedy. They gush about the super-cool, bold, arty, primitive drummer Maureen Tucker and how she’s such a revelation on this album and how she later surprisingly becomes a Tea Party supporter. “Nobody is just one thing” - Deborah Tarica. These particular songs are Wolf Parade’s “I’ll Believe In Anything” and “Sundown” by Gordon Lightfoot. Subscribe, Listen, Enjoy, Rate and Review!

Pretty Ricky's Bluestars with Carl Tart

ECarl Tart sits down and embarrasses himself by singing the praises of Pretty Ricky’s debut album, Bluestars. Well “embarrassed” is the term he uses but we simply must give the man a break. This album came out when he was 16! After he came back to his high school looking trim following a weird 6 months in Mississippi! When there were now parties to go to and girls were starting to look at him, you know, differently! Yep. “Grind on Me” time. And AIM time too! What a time to be alive! They talk about school parties, horny songs, Carl’s mom driving him from Altadena to Culver City (yikes) every morning to fail to arrive on time for Jazz Band. Sux if you’re on Sax! Can’t sneak in late when you’re in the front. Also, Joel’s a cop. (SFX: AIM DOOR CLOSING) These particular songs are Imogen Heap’s “Hide and Seek” and O-Town’s “Every Six Seconds.” Subscribe, Listen, Enjoy, Rate and Review!

Sun Kil Moon's Ghosts of the Great Highway with Lauren Lapkus

ELauren Lapkus sits down with Deborah and Joel to share her love of Sun Kil Moon’s Ghosts of the Great Highway. They talk about the weirdness of starting college, having no friends in college, making new friends in college or if you should break away from previous high school friends in college. They talk about how it’s wrong to shame a person who hasn’t yet seen or heard a particular movie, book or album - very important to the premise of this podcast! But wouldn’t you know literally seconds later Deborah and Lauren shame Joel for never seeing Home Alone. Lauren shares how she started long-form improv classes in Chicago while she was in high school! Ya’ll, she went to prom while she was in level 5! What was on your wall growing up? Was it stuff you enjoyed or stuff you felt you were supposed to enjoy? What blanket was surprisingly perfectly designed for Joel? Did you know Lauren was the model for the Statue of Liberty? These particular songs are “Like A Friend” by Pulp and “More Than This” by Roxy Music. Subscribe, Listen, Enjoy, Rate and Review!

Jesus Christ Superstar (The Original Studio Cast) with Grant O'Brien

EGrant O’Brien shares his love for the original studio cast recording of Jesus Christ Superstar but stresses it’s not his favorite musical. It’s glorious, it’s weird and not a little problematic from time to time. He reveals the sexual confusion he had while in Catholic school and how he connected with his not-cool-enough-to-be-a-hippy father over musicals. Wait. Not cool enough? Grant’s Dad rode his bike with his twin brother all the way from Ohio to New York City to see the original Broadway production of JCS. That may not be “Hippy” but that is pretty cool! They talk about seeing musicals as a kid and how the best roles are the ones where you go out, steal the show and then go backstage to “have a jacuzzi.” Inevitably the discussion turns to favorite/least favorite musicals and then we get to....Cats. I mean what the hell is that musical about? These particular songs are ABBA’s “I Am The City” and Yvonne Elliman‘s “If I Can’t Have You.” Subscribe, Listen, Enjoy, Rate and Review!

Carole King's Tapestry with Jamie Denbo

EDeborah and Joel sit down with the great Jamie Denbo and hear about her love for Carole King’s Tapestry. Man what an album! Deborah and Jamie bond over how it all really started with Really Rosie. We learn that Jamie inadvertently (well, advertently) bullied Deborah into having a baby and why Carole King’s voice makes us all feel good and safe. We discover the pressure to like something in college, even Ska! There was a STARK difference between Deborah and Jamie’s (Jewish) summer camp and Joel’s (Christian) summer camp. One had scorpions! Bet you can’t guess the true prequel to The Handmaids Tale! Tune in to find that out as well as how “Jewish” Jamie Denbo’s happy place is.
