The Golden Girls Ep 025 The Way We Met with Bill Binder

Finally the hilariously epic Bill Binder (@whbinder, Phoenix Improv Festival, Del Close Marathon) took a break from his The Torch Theatre duties and watched the LAST episode of season one with us! That's right, WE COMPLETED THE FIRST SEASON!!! *noisemakers* We watched the prequel, the Phantom Menace of the Golden Girls, if you will... the one where we find out how the girls met and how much strangers can yell at each other. We talked about Tuesday-only bulleting boards, moonlit breasts and genderless children.

The Golden Girls Ep 024 Big Daddy with Amy Carpenter

The fantasmic, hyper-quirky Amy Carpenter (@AmywithanEye, Mail Order Bride, Phoenix Improv Festival) graciously watched the next episode of the Golden Girls with us and it was magic. True magic. We watched the one where Blanche's father, "Big Daddy," comes to visit and he reveals a surprise that ruffles her feathers and push-up bra. We talked about wearing a mayonnaise suit, gay cowboy bars and the new Golden Girls spin-off, Just Glad to Be Gladys.

The Golden Girls Ep 019 Second Motherhood with Stu Baker

We had the comedic "real deal" that is Stu Baker (@StuBakerComedy, All Comedy Radio, Lopez Tonight Freelance Writer) on the Golden Girls podcast!

We discussed jumping out of jet planes, Back to the Future and a dystopian toilet society. Full disclosure: Genevieve's mic was acting up, but we forgave it. You should too!

The Golden Girls Ep 018 The Operation with Shawn Collins

We had a BLAST with the funny, clever and lovable Shawn Collins​ (@theBullyMammoth, Bully Mammoth Sketch Comedy, Cinester Theater)! It was a cold and dark Super Bowl night, yet we watched the Golden Girls instead! The one where Dorothy needs a foot operation and has to stay at a pretty messed up hospital. We talked about ugly fruit baskets, getting your tits cut off and drinking in the park. Full disclosure: We had some problems with Shawn's mic, if you can make it past 3 minutes it continues to get better. Thanks all!

The Golden Girls Ep 017 Nice and Easy with Steve Maxwell

We had some scotch and cigarettes with the broodingly hilarious Steve Maxwell (@ComedyOnTap, Hidden House Comedy, The Almost Homeless Comedy Tour) and watched episode 17 of season one, "Nice and Easy!" It was the one where Blanche's niece is sexually out of control and totally slut-upstaging her aunt AND as per usual, Dorothy wants the blood of a house mouse to be shed. We talked about Miami Vice, vagina cockroaches and how to bang your way into a Florida college.
