On this latest LIVE episode of the show, we sit down with data journalist and illustrator Mona Chalabi (Guardian US, BBC, FiveThirtyEight) to discuss the song “No Romance” by Tirzah. Since she’s currently not seeing a therapist, Mona asks us to try and give her insight on what this song means to her. This is a first for us and we end up talking a lot about romance, whether or not it’s a necessary part of life, logic as it relates to romance, and what we’re told about love growing up. How much does love matter to Mona and what does the word even mean? She answers these questions while admitting that she is a “really really really hard person to date.”

We’re joined on this episode by Bridgette Rizkalla (UCB) to discuss the Louis Armstrong rendition of “La Vie en rose.” Bridgette tells us about wanting emotional substance in songs and how, no matter the genre or era, those are the songs that resonate with her. We talk about listening to Arab music with her parents, whether or not we want kids, and the vulnerability of dancing.

Lauren Ashley Smith, head writer on The Rundown with Robin Thede, joins us on this LIVE edition of the show to talk about “Ain’t Nobody” by Rufus & Chaka Khan. We are also joined by one of our favorite musical guests, Mikki Hommel, who not only covers “Ain’t Nobody” beautifully, but she also debuts a brand-new original track and improvises a song based on suggestions from the audience. WOW.

Goodness gracious! We’re back this Sunday, 5/6, at 8:30 PM, with a brand new LIVE show featuring comedic madman Branson Reese (Cartoon Network, his own damn comics) and musician Matt Costabile (The Planes, Rockets On Wire, Endl’ng). We’ll be talking with Branson about the Jawbreaker song “Want” and hearing music from Matt, which two things that excite us very much. In advance of the show, let’s get to know our guests a little better!

Legendary and delightful funnyman Kyle Gordon (My Dark Little Corner, Magnet Theater) was our guest to talk about “Wondering Where The Lions Are” by Bruce Cockburn. Kyle tells us how he came across this song and how much it means to him. It’s pretty clear that this is Kyle’s song considering how much he listens to it and it’s a tune he relies on to calm him down.

The one and only Glo Tavarez joins us in the studio to talk about the Hall & Oates song “Talking All Night” and if you don’t know what it is to talk with Hall & Oates megafan, you will after listening to this episode. Plus, we talk a heck of a lot about Dungeons & Dragons.

On this episode, we have comedian and actor CARLY ANN FILBIN to talk with us about Hanson’s smash hit “Mmmbop.” If you’ve never met anyone with an undying love for the band Hanson, strap in.

LOVE IS IN THE AIR!!! We continue our annual tradition of LOVE SONGS ONLY for the Valentine’s Day edition of the live show and we invite SEVEN wonderful friends to join us for the occasion.
