TDF Ep 15 – Doug Benson and Eddie Pepitone

over 10 years ago

  For the first time I think I’m out chatted. Doug Benson owns his dorkdom with a dignity that I truly admire and Eddie Pepitone is a fascinating man in search of his muse. Together their enjoyment of the minutia of life, from twitter to game shows, defines what I really think of when I think of dorkdoms. This episode is cussy – just so you know.   Vagaries discussed The Muppets (new Muppet Movie Eddie is in. And I knew Amy Adams was once I saw her picture). Veronica Mars (A great TV show that was cancelled) Nielsen Ratings (I’m sure it’s important-I can’t figure an average. Mostly b/c I can’t care). Jean Doumanian (SNL and Woody Allen producer) Pema Chodron (Tibetan Buddhism Teacher) Money Drop (Kevin Pollack Hosted new game show) Murray Head - Chess (One Night in Bangkok) Noises Within (theater in Glendale) Dick Cavett interviews Janis Joplin (I love what she says after 5:00) Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work (Netflix Streaming) Paul Newman – Robert Redford (4th paragraph on this link has the car crushing story)   Books recommended   Eddie Death of the Liberal Class – Chris Hedges Hollywood Writers from 1950-1985 (find Eddie on twitter and ask him which of a million versions of this title)   Doug Zombie Spaceship Wasteland: a Book by Patton Oswalt Jackie Talk Show – Dick Cavett Fool On The Hill – Matt Ruff   Credits: Audio leveling by Patrick Brady!Music by Mike Ruekberg  My Website is www.jackiekashian.com and www.dorkforest.com is an offshoot of it and they both have players and links and show schedules, videos of my stand up and a donation button. Knock yourselves out.
