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.

Kelly Anneken (@thefatling on twitter) is a San Francisco stand up comic, the comedy curator over at Pandora Radio and enjoys a nice biography. A lot. She picked her current three favorite biographies (Hallie Flanagan, Madame de Stael and Cleopatra) and we go THROUGH them. In the midst we weed off talking about The Babysitter Club books and American Girl Doll books. It's great.

Disclaimer: This episode was recorded LIVE at Lost Weekend Video in San Francisco http://www.lostweekendvideo.com/Lost_Weekend_Video/The_Cinecave!.html, and there wasn't an audio guy. So you got ME. And Patrick did his best to mitigate how hot the recording was ... but it's a little buzzy. It's a little Ruth Buzzi. Get it? And... sorry. It was too great to bail on... so consider it in "podcast glory."

DONATE folk... I'm working over here. www.dorkforest.com or www.jackiekashian.com (which has T-shirts, CDs and Hooded Sweatshirts, my full stand up schedule and more info than you want). Email me if you have questions: jackie@jackiekashian.com
