Not only does Jon recount some amazing memories connected to their songs, he also proves that sometimes we should meet our heroes. Also! Meg and Julian tell the tale of how they met.
Trollin’ with the Homies” (with Beth Stelling)

Cowabunga, y’all! (with Ever Mainard)

We tackle these tough questions and more as we sit down with comedian, actor, and TMNT super fan, Ever Mainard! We chat about our favorite childhood toys, growing up in Texas, the timelessness of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie, and what it’s like to be the mascot of your high school!
I’m with HERmione (with Lisa Chanoux)
Julian and Meg are in the tiny percentage of people who know absolutely nothing of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. This week we sat down with comedian Lisa Chanoux, and she gave the Muggles of the Soft Spot a proper lesson in wizardry. Lisa knows a thing or two about wizardry herself, as she is one of the hosts of popular astrology podcast “What’s Your Sign?”. The three of us chat about the books versus the movies, growing up with Harry, and the political undertones and deeper meanings of the books.
