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.
