The Dork Forest

Dork on Dork Dialog with Jackie Kashian. I am interested in whatever dorky thing you want to talk about. Guests speak to their love of books, TV, Movies, Comic books, websites, food, wrestling, cars, action figures and bees. There is room for all in The Dork Forest. This is a safe space.

Allee Willis (www.alleewillis.com) loves Detroit, sandwiches and kitsch. She's written songs you know. September made famous by Earth, Wind and Fire... Boogie Wonderland... the theme to Friends (I might be the only dork excited about that last). But look her up on allmusic.com and have your mind blown. We talk about her amazing collection of kitsch, her project to help Detroit (http://alturl.com/xo5cc) and food. Quite a bit aout food. It's great. Enjoy. 

This month the show is sponsored by TiVo. www.tivo.com  - and you can get $25 off a new TiVo if you use the promo code from www.allthingcomedy.com "ATC." All Things Comedy has a BUNCH of great podcasts to listen to if you're looking for new pods to download.

You will hear me do an AD for TiVo on the show. I reference a bit by Patton Oswalt on Conan. (minute 3ish) www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdzIXkj1OfA Know that I genuinely like TiVo. So there.

You can also just DONATE to the show. www.dorkforest.com and www.jackiekashian.com have donate buttons. There, too, are Ranger T-shirts, CDs and info about my Standup Schedule and LIVE TDF's. Thanks for listening.

Matt Weinhold’s review of Star Trek

Attack of the Show

Get Mortified

DVD ASA – Podcast

I can’t FIND the Anakin speeder in American Graffiti – I think he meant this wiki entry “The yellow airspeeder that Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi use to pursue the bounty hunter Zam Wesell is based on John Milner's yellow deuce coupe,[51] while Dex's Diner is reminiscent of Mel's Drive-In.”
