Do Good Work Podcast Live Recording – “Show Biz”

Whether it’s in bands, movies, the radio, etc., there are a surprising amount of people who have had a brush with show biz. Full of narcissism, and desperation to succeed, the show biz industry makes for some very interesting people and some very interesting stories. This month’s storytellers are no different, and we’re pleased to […]

Blake Midgette – Beds, Metal Bands, and Beyond…

When I first met Blake Midgette, I was sure that he was 52 years old and a pervert. I was only correct about one of those things, he’s actually 36. No, no, he’s not a pervert, but the first time I actually heard about Blake was when I first started comedy in 2011. I had […]

  Happy February, everyone! I’m happy to report that we had a fantastic recording of our second live podcast at Spider House Ballroom in Austin last week.

Diana Ogaard – Starbucks Gun Threats, Brazilian Runaways, and the Art Hustle

In the history of my life, moving to Austin has been the most eventful chapter. Before I found comedy, before I went to grad school, before I adopted the dumbest dog I’ve ever met, I worked at a Starbucks at an outdoor mall. Then a Starbucks with a drive-thru. Then a Starbucks by the University. […]

Jared Hawley and Pat Sirois – Pickles, Pawn Shops, and Pussy

Jared Hawley and Pat Sirois are two of the most intimidating comics on Austin’s comedy stages. They’re loud, unfiltered, and generally inebriated. They showed up at my house at 1pm on a Saturday afternoon with 40s and a gas station pickle. I knew it would be a good time. Other ways to listen: Listen on […]

“And Then I Got Fired” – Live Recording

OH my hell! OH my damn! We did a live podcast! I’m going to be completely honest with ya’ll. I don’t know how this little podcast experiment is going. I say that because apparently I’m a narcissist who can only focus on herself. Listening to myself on these things is painful to say the least, […]

Jen Svehlak – Data Entry, Dead Bodies, and Hysterectomies

Jen Svehlak is the biggest comedy fan there is. I once watched her take a week off work just to stalk Jackie Kashian. She has since quit her data entry job and jumped the track to the production side of the entertainment business, and we couldn’t be happier to have her! Jen and I talk […]
