This conversation starts off very polite and normal. For about 2 minutes. Till the discussion about Vic Granata's cap with a cock on it. Vic wonders why everyone is interested in his cock hat and not his Bettie Page T-shirt.  Meschiya Lake and Brooke Boudreaux agree: always go for the cock first. Things don't necessarily go downhill from there, but there's not much in the way of ascent to lofty discussion, other than... Read More »

Walking into a bar in rural Mississippi can be an unnerving experience. But Jon Hatchett got a good song out of it. Andrew Duhon's inspiration for a new song - written just minutes before he played it - was inspired a bucket. It's about a man who thinks he has it all, described in the chorus as a "5 Gallon Captaincy." Jon Hatchett picks up the challenge and debuts a song he... Read More »

If you've ever gotten a friend request on Facebook or an email from someone whose photo is a sexy looking woman who says she's from Ghana and you wonder exactly what the scam could be, Kimya Holmes can tell you first hand. Well, technically second-hand since it was her now ex husband who got scammed by someone he believed (but she didn't) was a woman, in Ghana, with whom he... Read More »

Her uncle wrote for Seinfeld, including "The Opposite" episode where George ends up getting his job with The Yankees, but he the family still regarded him as a failure. And Laurie Cohen was a member of a Suicide Gang (not Isis) and was a freakin' bitch but that's another story. Anyway, Abby has some of the family funny genes and puts them to good... Read More »

Since Grant's busy working on the Donald Trump presidential campaign, we've got our old friend and Voodoo mastermind, Sig, to fill in for this week's Happy Hour. But Sig isn't completely amongst strangers, he's good friends with guest Anna Whitlow.  But Anna's not just friends with Sig, she's also the PR wunderkind behind Be Nimble Public Relations.

Hacking Up Children and Other Tales from The Farmers Market

Hacking Up Children and Other Tales from The Farmers Market
June 26, 2015

Andy King doesn't like to describe his job as "hacking up children." As an orthopedic surgeon and the (pardon the pun) head of the spine unit at Children's Hospital in New Orleans, Andy is good naturedly circumspect about how he describes using mechanical instruments on kids' backs. As a New Zealander, he's a lot less sensitive to his description of Australians. Bridget Kelly is a 7th generation New Orleanian whose son, August,... Read More »

On this show we talk to Sophie in Dar es Salaam and with the power vested... Read More »

By the end of this show you'll be able to say "Hi, how are you?" in Swahili, French, and Manadarin. This frst ever tri-lingual Happy Hour is not recommended listening if you are easily intimidated by the awesome achievements and amazing life experiences of others. If, however, you find sharing of diverse tales over cocktails enlightening and you love the discovery that we have more in common than you might... Read More »

We all write ourselves reminders. On a scrap of paper, on our phone, some of us write on our hands. Professor T R Johnson is the director of the Writing Program at Tulane University. It's mildly surprising to find out at the beginning of this conversation that TR writes on his hand. If you can stick it out till the end of this show when TR's phone alerts him of his...
