Episode 10: Moshe Kasher

The hilarious Moshe Kasher dropped by to talk about Jew-y things with Jillian. After the sixth time we said the word “rebbe” Melinda felt left out, so we changed the conversation to hip hop and drugs. Moshe discusses his fantastic new memoir Kasher in the Rye. He also tells you where you can take him out dancing on a Friday night. Listen up!

Episode 9: James Urbaniak

Get your fix of gossip about 90s NY experimental theater- you know you want it! James Urbaniak is as delightful as he is dashing- don’t be fooled by the MC Hammer jacket on his Wikipedia page.

Episode 7: Nina Hartley

The Legendary Nina Hartley Tells All!

You may think you know Nina Hartley intimately, but did she come to your house and drink tea and talk about her childhood dreams? Not likely, suckah! But you don’t have to take my word for it that she’s as bright and charming as she is gorgeous, you can listen in for yourself to Episode 7, in which Nina comes to the man cave to talk about feminism, growing up in Berkeley, bad marriages, good sex and why she doesn’t masturbate on airplanes. We learned stuff! You will, too!

Episode 6: Julien Nitzberg

The World’s Most Unlikely Therapist

After a mortifying phone call during which Jillian confused Julien Nitzberg with her therapist (also named Julien), Jillian had to make fast friends with this punker-than-fuck writer and filmmaker, if only so he wouldn’t reveal all her secrets. Julien comes by the man cave to talk about his utterly riveting film, The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia, rife with shoot-outs, robberies, gas-huffing , drug dealing, pill popping, murders, and tap dancing.

Episode 5: Selene Luna

Pint-Sized Power Nugget

The glamorous and hilarious Selene Luna came by to drink kombucha brewed by Jillian’s neighbor. I think it got us a little drunk because we definitely talked mad shit. Listen in as we reveal burlesque secrets, gossip about renowned performance artists, sing the praises of Margaret Cho and just generally talk show biz with this delightful diva of stage and screen.

Episode 4: Taylor Negron

Natural Disaster Group Sex

Comedian, playwright, essayist, actor and house psychic Taylor Negron stopped by the studio to talk about the ghosts in the Comedy Store, acting next to Barbara Streisand, the generosity of Robin Williams, what it takes to survive in the arts and an orgy that happened during hurricane Katrina. Check it out!

Episode 3: Mishna Wolff


Wolff in Supermodel’s clothing

Mishna Wolff, author of the mega-hit memoir I’m Down, came to drink Yerba Mate with us in Scott’s man cave. She is an absolute delight, a tall drink of water and a brilliantly sly satirist. We talk about sex and class and race and sexy class and racy sex and how failed assassins often become supermodels. Check it out!

Episode 2: Patty Schemel

Thanks to everyone for making Episode 1 such a success. We’re loving your emails and your iTunes reviews. Please keep ’em coming!

Hit Parade

Patty Schemel, drummer of the band Hole and subject of the new documentary Hit So Hard, came by the studio last week and blew us away by being so funny, honest and just plain f-ing rock. We talked about all the important things… motherhood, music, Courtney Love, documentaries, Jillian’s horrible ex, heroin and the magical healing powers of dogs. Check out the grit and the glamour that is Episode 2 of Eat My Podcast!

Episode 1: Thomas Jane

Welcome to the virgin voyage of Eat My Podcast!

What started as a lark born out of a conversation at What’s Up Tiger Lily one night has become a full-blown obsession for us and we’re thrilled to finally be getting it off the ground.

For our first episode, Thomas Jane showed up at my house with no shoes on and a sexy, surly attitude. We all got jacked-up on green tea lattes and spent a fascinating hour talking about comics, astronomy and Thomas’s early career as a Bollywood heartthrob, among other things.

And if that’s not enough, Thomas reminded Melinda about a short film the two of them made together back when he was her very first Hollywood boyfriend (well, how the heck do you think we got him to agree to do the show?). Melinda went home and actually FOUND the movie. It’s a doozy. Melinda insists they weren’t dropping acid. You can decide for yourself.

One of Thomas’s passions is Film Noir, and we think this picture looks appropriately spooky. It wasn’t intentional- it’s just the track lighting in the studio.
