Brandie Posey (@brandazzle on twitter) is a comic, podcaster (LADY TO LADY on iTunes) and REALLY wants to talk about Ska music. I, as usual with a music episode, know... NOTHING. She knows so much... I try to keep up and now I want to hear more Ska. She's gonna make me a mix. Very fun. Enjoy.

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

Cameron Esposito (www.cameronesposito.com and @cameronesposito on twitter) KNOWS the history of the portrayal of lesbians on television and the movies. And, can name more actresses than I can name people in my life. She is wonderful. This is great. Enjoy.

This month the show is sponsored by the Society of the Spectacle in Eagle Rock - on York - it's a really cool eyeglass store and Katie talked me into "cool" glasses. Heh. I think more along the lines of "a sedan on my face." Not noticable, not mockable. Katie has encouraged me to fly the eyeglass flag. http://www.societyspectacle.com. I recommend it whole-heartedly. Katie and Amy are great.
