Options December 4, 2013: #1 - Home for the Holidays

Coming up on the show, I get to know the woman my mom's been living with all these years. Then, come along for a camel ride in a parking lot, and a trip to a frozen lake at sunset. Plus, we hear from my younger brother Mike, my second cousin Steve, my best friend Julie, and a cowboy named Jack who really loves his wife. Join me for a trip home for the holidays, on this debut episode of Why Oh Why.

BONUS: A (rejected) theme song from my pal Jim the Poet.

Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Dancing on the bar seldom leads to good things. Or at least truly *great* things anyway...

Welcome to the Captain's Chair and the perm schej, Ange!
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:06pm Ange:

I think I almost cried when Ken and Andy intro'd the show!! This is super surreal guys.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:09pm Skirkie:

I always refer to Tilted Kilt as "Scottish Hooters."
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:10pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ange: And Marathon time isn't that far away--even more surreality so soon! (Start thinking of premium ideas!)

I've been looking forward to this show

I guess camels can handle cold like that. Thing I learned today.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:21pm JakeGould:

Folks in the midwest like exotic animals the way people in NYC like exotic food.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:21pm Skirkie:

Joe Camel? Of course.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:21pm Ange:

I'm super interested in premium ideas! There might be some kind of Grandma Phyllis revenge rap service. There should be a podcast you all can subscribe to after this episode airs. Check back here for the links!
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:23pm Jeff:

I can't stop listening.
  Wed. 12/4/13 7:24pm ?:

This is worse than bad NPR.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:25pm Matt from Springfield:

@Skirkie: Joke 'em all...

@Ange: Grandma Phyllis rap song? Promising idea! :)
Glad you're pro-podcast.

i agree with ?
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:27pm Greg from Bloomfield:

@?: I'm looking forward to hearing *your* show. In the meantime put a sock in it.

if you don't like it, then go somewhere else ya worm
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:31pm glenn:

ya know what i love? people who have no balls anonymously slagging somebody's show. don't be a pussy, ?
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:32pm Pine:

The online is thing is tough, I gave up trying to find people but left a profile up for my true blue pokemon master friend to eventually find
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:33pm Austarr:

@Ange Congratulations. I want to say I'm proud of you, like it matters, because you were my 7sd blogging boss. I'm hooked because I love bad NPR.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:34pm Skirkie:

Who. The Fuck. Makes a date at 7am on Sunday?
  Wed. 12/4/13 7:34pm Jenna WB:

This show is the best. Also "what's your favorite sushi" is a super gross way to ask someone out.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:35pm JakeGould:

I did online dating until I realized what a headache it was. Deleted my OkCupid & now I do this “weird” thing where I go & meet people at non-drinky/bar places.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:35pm glenn:

if anybody asked me my favourite sushi, i'd go out with them in a heartbeat.
  Wed. 12/4/13 7:35pm Jenna WB:

I want your mom saying zydeco on a loop!
  Wed. 12/4/13 7:36pm marc:

Glad to be gay. No girl drama.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:36pm Ange:

@Skirkie: She was a nurse, and worked overnights! That's the kinda guy my cousin is.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:37pm Skirkie:

I love mornings and all, but damn.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:37pm Ange:

@Jenna Now I know what I'm getting you for hanukkah
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:37pm glenn:

because no gay drama?
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:37pm Mike East:

whats your favourite sushi, glenn? I dont want a date, I just like talking about food
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:38pm glenn:

i like the barbecued fresh water eel, the name of which i can never remember.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:39pm Pine:

Its the best Glenn!
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:40pm JakeGould:

My favorite sushi is not-spoiled.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:40pm glenn:

and can anybody explain to me how the japanese, who don't eat bread, came up with panko?
  Wed. 12/4/13 7:41pm Corey:

Great Show! I met at WFMU DJ at a conference. Highlight of last month.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:41pm Mike East:

unagi...mine too!
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:41pm glenn:

i have the skin of two 26 year olds.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:41pm Skirkie:

I'd love to see the Cialis commercial with the guy lying to his kids about his girlfriends age before they go sit in those separate bathtubs.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:42pm Mike East:

I don't know if you'd count it as sushi, but I've got half a dozen unshucked oysters left in the fridge.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:42pm glenn:

yes, unagi. thanks. (i'll forget it again).
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:44pm glenn:

mmmm. oysters.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:46pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm boysterous about oysters.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:47pm Mike East:

met my buddy from montauk last weekend and he brought about fifty of them that he dove for himself. delicious.
  Wed. 12/4/13 7:48pm Jenna WB:

i think maybe everything about this old guy sounds like horrible news?
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:49pm SeanG:

it's all about the sex

Playlist Poll: Is it OK to date without a longterm plan?
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:50pm JakeGould:

Yes. Date.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:50pm glenn:

wait. you're talking about kansas city? EVERY date should be at arthur bryant's.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:50pm Pine:

Exclusively
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:50pm Skirkie:

You can try it, but it ain't gonna work.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:51pm SeanG:

short term can be fun
  Wed. 12/4/13 7:51pm Jenna WB:

it's ideal to date without a longterm plan, i think!
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:51pm glenn:

oh my god. just live your life. whatever is gonna happen is gonna happen.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:51pm Austarr:

Poll: It's OK. It's not bad. It's not good.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:52pm glenn:

just don't ever make the mistake of staying with somebody so you won't be alone.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:52pm JakeGould:

Okay, you know what… Don’t date… Just wait until you are a desiccated husk sharing peach slices & Sanka at a nursing home in your “golden years.”
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:53pm glenn:

what jake said.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:53pm glenn:

except sanka? jeeez.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:53pm Austarr:

Nursing home dating is pretty crazy.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Absolutely OK. But if you do have a long term plan, you probably need to date someone who also has a (similar) plan.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Cool, all background music from the FMA, and links to all the FMA tracks!
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:54pm JakeGould:

Seriously, the idea of dating with a longterm plan is nuts. Either you get along or not. If you don’t you stop dating. If you do you keep on dating & guess what? You don’t have a long term plan, but you suddenly have a relationship without planning on it.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:55pm Mike East:

I think people with long term plans in general are doomed for dissappointment
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:55pm Pine:

I plan to become a stoner again when I retire
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:55pm anne:

great show, Andrea, thanx!!
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:56pm Jeff:

Triumphant debut!
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:56pm JakeGould:

I’m putting together a PowerPoint for my next date.
  Wed. 12/4/13 7:56pm thatsyourtrouble:

Great show, Andrea! It's really exciting that you'll be on the schedule on a regular basis.
  Wed. 12/4/13 7:56pm earrie:

New show!
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@Jake: Serendipity, the best kind of plan.
@Mike: Agree. It's hard to generalize things, but my observations tend to agree with your observation there.
  Wed. 12/4/13 7:56pm Jenna WB:

i am going to listen every week forever andrea!
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:56pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Nice work, Ange! And I'm stealing that PowerPoint idea.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:57pm JakeGould:

Also bringing a laser pointer & some doughnuts for the date.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Don't read off the slides, Jake.

Thanks Andrea, glad you have a regular show!
Have a good night, people! (Y-O-Y-ers?)
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:58pm Ange:

You guys are THE BEST LISTENERS EVER. I am so excited to make more radio for you, and get you more involved in the show.
Avatar Wed. 12/4/13 7:59pm Ange:

And I'm going to use this time to come out as strongly pro-powerpoint
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:59pm Mike East:

congrats on the slot, Ange. Looking forward to your output.
Avatar    Wed. 12/4/13 7:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Eureka! The Y-O Wires! :)
  Sat. 1/11/14 2:52pm Helen of Schenectady:

I just listened to it (yes, in January) and I thought it was great. I'm subscribing to the podcast and looking forward to listening to more! But only after I listen to my most FAVORITIST podcast in the world, SSD :)
