Episode 176 - Mike DiGuglielmo & Adam Prevade


Loose Cannon Comedy’s Mike DiGuglielmo & Adam Prevade have known each other since undergrad at Pitt-Johnstown when Mike was Adam’s RA. I loved getting to know these two and their journey to stand-up from campus tv. Beyond producing their own stand-up shows at Obey House, Ace Hotel, and Karl’s House of Curiosities, they’ve been able to launch their own podcast, Sequilites where they come up on the spot with sequals and remakes to some of your favorite movies.

We talk about Adam’s win last year in the Pittsburgh Comedy Festival stand up contest and Mike’s undying love for their Obey House Classic series where they provide color commentary for Nintendo Wii Bowling and Rock, Paper Scissors.

Get to know 2/5 of the Loose Cannon Comedy team with me and check out some of their upcoming shows Baumshells!

Episode 175 - Samantha Bentley

 

I really loved talking with Samantha Bentley on this episode. She’s fantastic person and I loved getting to know her. We talked about Comedy, life, love, music, and of course Pittsburgh scene shit. We talked about building a partnership to create the fun audience-suggestion, off the cuff show called, Three Women, One Mic. The show features Samantha, Tracey Williamson, and Shaun McCarthey taking audience suggestions as inspiration for hilarious banter. They take the show to Cleveland’s Pythagoras Temple on September 21st. Enjoy.

Episode 173 - Tamara Siegert & Hazel Leroy

 

I had a blast talking with Tamara Siegert & Hazel Leroy both cast members of Welcome to Moonside, a new immersive theater experience from Vigilance Theater Group. We really have great discussion about acting and theater. We discuss how each of them get in to character specifically for immersive theater, and we talk about the recent growth of this particular style of live theater.

Some time ago, I met Hazel and Tamara in the local improv scene and we talk about how those skills led them down the path towards immersive theater. We also spend some talking of how pursuing and following your passions, at all points of your life, is a requirement for true happiness.

Welcome to Moonside - will run August 22nd - September 28th. 8:00 PM. See above link for tickets. Only 25 tickets are available for each performance and you’ll have the opportunity to return to a legendary Pittsburgh location, Lava Lounge.

The Spirits need your help. You've been called to Moonside, the otherworldly home base of our spectral caretakers, at a time of crisis: Earth is rotten, Spirits are getting lost and no one can remember how to make things better. Some of the Spirits think you can help; others are not very happy you've arrived. Can you make things right — or is a sinister fate in store for our ghostly hosts?

Episode 172 - JanJoy Productions

 

Not just an interview, it’s an experience!

Great to get to know the journey of these two promoters, Jus Janell and TheRawRevJoy who have been able to expand to three different monthly venues in their first year booking The Giggles & Grub Club.

I’ve had the good fortune to work both of the Denise & Earl’s venues along with a corporate event with the team at JanJoy and have had some very fun sets. As a Swissvale resident, it is great that they’ve been able to put up regular content at their Clubhouse for the VIP Red Carpet Event at T’s Restaurant and Lounge.

Great chat. Please enjoy and check out their next experience on Saturday, August 24 at T’s Restaurant & Lounge for WAMO 100.1 Night.

Episode 170- Kevin O'Brien

 

What kind of introduction can I possibly offer fitting of my love for this week’s guest, my original podcast sound engineer and the song creator of the theme you enjoy each week on this program? Kevin O’brien has been a close friend of mine for half a decade and I’m so thankful to have him back on the show. It has been almost 5 years exactly since our first one on one podcast conversation took place during the From the Height of Your Intelligence days.

He’s a delight always. Enjoy the conversation.

Episode 168 - Yaakov Fakiro

 

I’m joined on the podcast this week by my friend Yaakov Fakiro. We talk much about his love of fitness and his in-home personal training business, Winners Fitness.

We also jump into some common ground. After my recent Aliyah in June, and his history studying in Israel during his teens, we have a great talk of spiritual growth and our travels abroad.

We also talk about the importance of living a balanced fulfilled life, putting equal time and energy in sustaining a happy personal life, managing a vigorously healthy lifestyle, and operating an ever-growing wellness and health business. He’s got it all under control.

A great conversation for those looking to start a career in their passion, jumpstart their workouts or find out about what drives them.

Episode 165 - Sarah Lou


Great to catch up with Sarah Lou after we’ve both been jet setting for the last few months. Her new venture, HotDogLou Productions, launched in June with their new Wednesday Open Mic at Froggy’s in Bloomfield. Sarah and I talk about her first year in Pittsburgh, adjusting from West Coast life, and the amount of people that assume she is a comic based on her building her community around the Pittsburgh comedy scene during visits to Yuck Fest in Indianapolis and the Burning Bridges festival the last two years.

Episode 158 - LOST & Found Chemistry Test


EPISODE FEATURES HEAVY SPOILERS for Game of Thrones and Avengers: Endgame - Probably some other TV Shows too….You’ve Been Warned-

I’ve always had a deep love for TV and movies and much of that origin comes from the TV show LOST. I’ve tossed around the idea to some of my longtime friends for a potential podcast next year when the 10 year anniversary of the end of the show occurs. While we dip into LOST a bit, the bulk of this 30 minute adventures discusses the current TV giant Game of Thrones and the current state of the Marvel Universe after Avengers: Endgame.

Would love to hear what you think of your interest in more Garrett in your ears next year ouside of the standard interview format. Message me @droppingbaums on IG or Twitter and let me know.
