Nutty Buddy Wishes and Velveeta Dreams

This week (day? month? fortnight? who knows!) times are terrifying so Meg and Julian are back on the gramma couch to talk about childhood comfort foods and movies. Ah childhood, that magical time before you knew that housing a whole box of Fruity Pebbles at once was "stress eating." Before you knew that the freckled kid from the Sandlot would become an Urban Outfitters t-shirt, and before you knew that Nutri-grain bars for breakfast were child abuse.

Help Me Fonda!

There will only be fun! (with Ross Marquand)

EMeg and Julian are back for another stop on their farewell tour. First, they share stories about jobs they were fired from. Then they revisit a chat with one of their favorite guests actor, master impressionist, and zombie killer Ross Marquand! While you may know him as Aaron from The Walking Dead, we now know him as the best (and only?) John C. Reilly impersonator. He also blessed us with (Soft) Spot-on impressions of your fav Sorprano, your favorite philosophical Texan actor, and a certain legendary Scottish silver fox. If you don’t know who We are talking about, I guess it’s about time you tune in and figure it out! And if that’s not enough reason to listen, Ross’s Soft Spot is a twofer: both the theme song of and the television show, Highlander! In fact, his enthusiasm for the show is so contagious you will feel like you’ve been bitten by a Highlander zombie, doomed to wander the earth in search of old episodes. Enjoy!

Won't you be my neighbor, again? (with John Mulaney)

EJulian and Meg start on their farewell tour and reveal their Soft Spots gone sour, former Soft Spots that just don’t hold up when revisited. Then they remember their visit with gorgeous kid John Mulaney! His love for Mr. Rogers reminds us that what is essential is not visible, that speaking softly can have a loud effect, and that not everybody has heard the Backstreet Boys..

Song of the Summer

EThis week Meg and Julian go sans guest for a deeper dive into the magic of Summer! The smells, the food, the new boobs and the old hits, Summer is boss when it comes to the good old days. Meg also recounts the horror of her recent bout with BPPV (vertigo), a harrowing and cautionary tale that will leave you spinning (but hopefully not her).

Episode Rerelease - Sit and Beef It (with Karen Kilgariff)

EJulian and Meg are on vacation so this week, we are thinking back on one of our softest episodes with Karen Kilgariff! Time to pop a bottle of champs and roll back to the days of the Lawrence Welk Show! This week we waltzed down memory lane with our hilarious friend Karen Kilgariff of “My Favorite Murder”. We chat about signature scents, old timey music, bad tv, and a fancy champagne lady who was wrongfully terminated. In the words of good ol’ LW, this episode is wonderful, wonderful!

Episode Rerelease - Sit and Beef It (with Karen Kilgariff)

He’s All That (with Thomas Dale)

This week we were joined by one of our favorite New York transplants, comedian Thomas Dale! Before we got down to serious Soft Spot biz, we chatted about mental and physical health, Thomas’s ‘Creep Cam’ being the BEST thing on the internet, and we even touched on the esoteric! We gush over the hunks of the early aughts and why Thomas loves straight boys, which brought us to Thomas’s Soft Spot- teen rom coms of the late 90’s and early 2000s! Thomas had us in tears and Meg laughed so hard she felt like she had completed PX90 by the time this ep was over! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
