I talked with Adam Gertler and Stirling Gardner about food, self improvement and more food.

Adam is so specifically a food dork I forget he loves comics and graphic novels. Gotta get him back on to talk of those things. But he had a great, simple butternut squash soup recipe so I got distracted :) And I gave him a couple squash from the garden in return. Stirling took a big handful of Kale... he didn't tell me how he's going to prepare them. Adam has his current show on Food Network - Kid in a Candy Store and Will Work For Food is in rerunning rotation.

Stirling has had a wide and varied obsessive life and it took me most of the show to pinpoint that he loves him some self help body and mind work. We spoke of the spoon treatment to his back - Gua Sha - and he sent me a picture of his back but it looks pretty bad... why don't you just Google it. Adam and I were disturbed. YET... intrigued. That's what LA will do to you. And the Dork Forest... you end up intrigued about "body treatments."

Then it was CRAZY... Stirling worked on some Tony Robbins seminars and how you can use your powers for good or evil. I got creeped out and made Adam tell me about the Reeses Peanut Butter Cup factory.

The iPhone App finally has extra content. Me telling Andy about the show, essentially and me trying to explain the difference and sameness of the Beer Koozie, Beer Cozy, Cozies, Cozie and Coozy. Tell me how you like it if you have the app!

Thanks for tuning in! I'm in Minnesota this week and Indiana next week - check the tour page on my website for specifics. Take care out there. Jackie

    The near-juxtaposition of Dark Chocolate Peanut-Butter Cups and Rimjobs Gone Awry is perhaps unfortunate, but at least as a diabetic it helps me keep the craving under control (and there, from a previous conversation, I've managed to suggest I Don't Love scat-play).

    I have decided that Bamford and you are the peak-stage Lenny Bruce and Mort Sahl of our time, and if you two can keep away from the dominoes-falling rousts and heroin on her part and the JKF/Warren Commission obsession and disastrous marriages to strippers and related free-floating hostility on yours, that your peaks will extend at least to such time as when familiy members will cease telling you which comedians they prefer to you, except in afterthought. It could happen! Tony Robbins assures it!

    I had another thought, but the scat thing chased it away (nay, not Merely Carollian, but Joycean, no?) but did you mean to hit the closing theme while wrapping up the comments? Looking forward to Marcia Wallace.

    It's actually not too tough to walk mildly briskly through hot coals, it's an old trick...the sweat on your soles (as opposed to the sweat on your soul, which Has to have been a Stax/Volt single for someone) will help you get across the several-feet-long pits they use in the Robbins nonsense seminars, and everyone else who does this (and lots of charlatans do this).

    Zig Ziglar is such a remarkable fellow to have his spiel drilled into a youngster...sorry about that. Did you and Maria Bamford bond a bit over early Carnegie exposure? The Moonies, of course, kept buying and founding stuff in DC, particularly (such as THE WASHINGTON TIMES), in hopes of throwing weight around, or being seen as having weight to throw around.
