Hey all, this is going to be our last episode. So, I hope you enjoy it. I like the part where we talk about museums to ourselves. It’s a Jaime led story, and she also did the first ep, so that’s kind of symmetrical.
Brady has a weakness for comic books. Not just the amount of money he spends on them, but what they do to him emotionally. In this episode, he talks about some of the comics that really get him going and completely embarrasses himself at the end. It’s rough. He didn’t even really want to post this one, but here you go. Begin laughing now.
With Jaime Fountaine, R. Eric Thomas and T.J. Hurley.
The Hard Rock Cafe has a whole life philosophy, and after Eric dropped out of college for a little bit, he completely bought into it. All 7 M’s. That’s right – the seven Ms. Want to find out more? I did. Listen. Also, there’s a chase scene.
Ever meet someone you admired forever and it’s a total letdown? In this story, Jaime meets punk legend Richard Hell – twice – and he’s awesome each time. No disappointments. No depression. No bitter childhood memories. Yet it really is a true Jaime story. You should keep Wikpedia handy to get thru this ep.
T.J. and one of his best friends gets the opportunity to take a road trip across the country, on someone else’s cash. They’ve got a month till their post-undergrad schooling starts. They’ve got girlfriends. Life looks pretty good. Then they hit Louisville.
In second grade, Hillary Rea thought she had a friend forever when she and another girl performed the big number from Dirty Dancing together for the schoolwide talent show. And they did stay intertwined forever (well, a long time), but you wouldn’t quite call it friendship.
Also featuring R. Eric Thomas, Jaime Fountaine and Brady Dale.
Don’t forget that RISK! is coming to Philadelphia in 10 days, featuring a story by Brady Dale (and Elna Baker – but she’s not on the podcast). Click the image for ticketing info for this April 20th show (at the Free Library Main Branch).

In honor of our listener, Spaghetti Werewolf, who was kind enough to leave us a rating and write a nice review on iTunes (thank you to everyone who does that), I wanted to honor his request for more storytelling podcasts.
Standup Mixtape with Cameron Esposito is an interesting first person podcast (here she is getting all up in your Facebook). The format is basically as follows: Esposito kicks it off with some funny story from her life. Then she brings on an up-and-coming Chicago comic. Sometimes the comic tells stories or sometimes he or she just does comedy.
But, Cameron pretty much always kicks it off with a story. So I’d say it is a storytelling podcast – with some traditional stand-up thrown in. Plus she has a live audience, which is always dope.
