Hero Hotel, an audio podcast based on the very funny kids’ graphic novel by Yehudi Mercado, just released their second season. I worked on the new season with a bunch of other fun writers.
In this adventure comedy, Chet Zebrowski works at his Grandma Zee’s hotel for superheroes. When hijinks and mayhem erupt – all while the heroes are on vacation and unwilling to lift a finger – it’s up to Chet and his super-powered cat Boomer to save the day. But will catering to the needs of these demanding supers push Chet too far?
I guested this week on Doughboys, talking about Korean bakery chain Paris Baguette (plus home baking, cats and more) with old UCB friends Nick Wiger and Mike Mitchell. If you’re curious, this is what I ordered, minus a savory pastry and a chai latte. It was a good haul.
I’m back on Becky Feldman’s romance novel podcast Too Stupid to Live discussing Grace Callaway’s second Mayhem in Mayfair book, “Her Wanton Wager,” which we both loved. Highlights: Handjob gazebos, gambling hells and whether or not people said “whatever” in the Regency period. I’d say NSFW but what does that even mean these days? Also, probably the most giggling I’ve done on a single podcast, ever.
I started off 2018 by guesting on Becky Feldman’s romance novel podcast Too Stupid to Live. We discuss Grace Callaway’s “Her Husband’s Harlot.” Highlights: the word “ranunculus,” steamy boxing ring sex, someone gets hit in the head with a copy of Mary Wollstonecraft’s “A Vindication of the Rights of Woman” and the characters include not one but TWO Miss Havishams. Very NSFW!
I guested on Two Packs a Week, the trading card podcast hosted by Geoffrey Golden of The Devastator. We open a Wacky Pack and a pack of The California Raisins World Tour cards. Find out which countries the Raisins toured to! Listen to us argue about the actual size of the California Raisins. Are they tiny? Do we depict them as they’re tiny to make them seem less threatening? Episode here: https://itun.es/i6Y66PS
I was lucky enough to guest on the great comic Jackie Kashian‘s podcast, The Dork Forest about three subjects I will readily dork out about: baking, learning Mandarin as an adult and of course, Windows 95. Listen to me talk about the naming of operating systems and how to make a chocolate cake from scratch.
I guested on the Lady to Lady podcast this week. It was delightful.
