Watch that first step, this week’s issue of Tell Your Friends! is a doozy!

This week, Liam McEneaneytalks to actor, podcaster, and author of The Dangerous Animals ClubStephen Tobolowsky, about his work on films likeGlimmer Man, answers listener questions about his roles onDeadwood and Californication, and one of the most touching Mel Gibson stories you’ll hear all year. He also talks about why he prefers auditioning to being offered a role and he tells the unglamorous truth about sex scenes.

In fact, it’s only March, but the quote of the year might be: “For you people out there who think you want to be part of a simulated sex scene in Hollywood, let me set you straight.” 

All that and a Road Story from Mike Doughty and another trip down Ted Travelstead’s Story Hole. 

And Liam talks about helping to scout interns at NYU, and how the NY Mets have the worst ownership in the history of New York sports, and how this might not be the Only Podcast That Matters.

Follow Stephen Tobolowsky on Twitter at @Tobolowsky and at his site, stephentobolowsky.wordpress.com

This week’s music:

Stephen Tobolowsky’s interview theme is Amazing Grace from the Jerry Garcia/David Grisman albumThe Pizza Tapes

The Road Stories theme is Country Roads, Take Me Home from Mike Doughty’s album The Flip Is Another Honey

In this week’s issue of Tell Your Friends! The Only Podcast That Matters!, Liam McEneaney talks to NY Times-bestselling author Baratunde Thurston about his tenure as Political Editor at The Onion, about how he worked his way through Harvard at every end of the social spectrum, and about how everything that could go wrong with an interview was currently going wrong live on mic.

And 18-time Moth slam champion Adam Wade tells us a story about his salad days as a page for Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

All this, and Liam talks about the transformative power of seeing Jonathan Richman live, headlining an open mic contest at a gay bar, and performing at the surprise 40th birthday party of an ex-Navy SEAL.

Also, a sneak preview of the first TYF! bonus episode, “Novelization: The Reading Show Based On The Major Motion Picture.” The episode is a live recording of a reading show in Brooklyn with “TV’s Frank” Conniff, Todd Hanson, Joe Garden, Maggie Serota, rap group Hand Job Academy, and hosted by Heidi Vanderlee, Marlow Riley, and Liam McEneaney. It will drop Wednesday, February 27th.

In this week’s issue of Tell Your Friends! The Only Podcast That Matters!, we speak to Catherine Popper. Cat has played in bands like Ryan Adams & the CardinalsHem, and Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, and she talks about all of that, plus stories about how Willie Nelson is just as cool as you’d hope he would be, and her triumphant showing at Levon Helm’s legendary Ramble.

Also, Bob Powers gives us A Lecture On Internet Video Success From A Man Who Has Sex With Food, and we spend another Moment With Stacey Nightmare.

All that, and Liam McEneaney takes you behind the scenes at his three favorite screenings of Tell Your Friends! The Concert Film!

* * * * *

MUSIC FROM THIS EPISODE:

Catherine Popper’s interview theme is “Come Pick Me Up,” by Ryan Adams, from the album Heartbreaker.

We also play an excerpt from the song “Stella Blue,” from Willie Nelson’s album Songbird.

And the TYF! theme by A Brief View of the Hudson.

This week we speak with Christian Finnegan, star of a couple of Comedy Central specials, of Tell Your Friends! The Concert Film!, and known from his appearances on TV shows including Best Week Ever and Chappelle’s Show.  We talk about how he lived when he started standup, and how his music nerdliness got him out of that. Speaking of which, he is also the host of the brand-new podcast Audio Spackle, which I highly—highly!—recommend listening to.

Wait, wait, come back. Don’t listen to that, yet, because Finnegan’s interview here made me laugh really hard.

Also, we have a story from his wife, Kambri Crews, author of her memoir Burn Down the Ground, about what it’s like to visit her father in prison and how she almost got caught sneaking contraband in.

We also get a story from Stephen Tobolowsky, author of the Dangerous Animals Club, about a working vacation that went terribly wrong.

And Liam McEneaney reads romantic poetry for all the lovers out there.
