A comedy podcast from two friends who are just about over it. Bitter Coffey is the musings and mutterings of Kelly Coffey and Darek Fanton.
In a rare Saturday morning show, Margo does her best to navigate Kelly's excessive coffee consumption earlier that morning, while discussing cardiovascular issues, Jell-O, and a recording of an ice cream murder truck drive-by. Kelly goes into her decades-long fear of fabric stores, and Margo shares that her dislike of PB&J might be un-American. Salad bars are mourned and Darek's stellar editing skills hide a segment when Kelly just starts hitting buttons on the laptop for no apparent reason.
Nobody Puts Lambchop In A Corner
Margo and Kelly both process their recent COVID tests, and we're happy to report they are both negative. Kelly confuses Match Game with Hollywood Squares and Margo shares a pandemic-driven game show reboot. There's a moment when Kelly is searching for a recording of an ice cream truck that spirals away from her, and Margo discusses her obsession with the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, complete with highly-anticipated team regalia.
Margo and Kelly celebrate the first days of fall, and discuss ice cream trucks from the 1980s, leading to a Cannonball vs. Screwball Debate. They ponder the resilience of Greek pool floaties and how Bed, Bath & Beyond claims to be the "Master of Kelly's needs." A fruit fly repeatedly swings by the studio, and Margo shares yet another word that Kelly has never heard.
Fan of the show and our creative consultant Grace Batsie joins Margo and Kelly, where they continue to break down the origin and validity of the term "meatbird." They also delve into 80's candy, old people TV shows, violent sugary beverage mascots and the genius of Dan Batsie. There are several times where Kelly is convinced the show isn't recording, but continues to ramble on for the better part of an hour.
So Much Sharing
With Darek on summer hiatus, previous guest Margo Batsie joins the show in the 2nd seat. She and Kelly take a meandering & unsupervised walk down Memory Lane, detailing how they both made their foray treading the boards on the legit stage as children awkwardly playing politicians, and the impact Taco Bell had on Margo’s driving skills. The pair also offer support to a woman named Michelle Obama, a newcomer to the podcast scene. Nothing really happens but a lot goes on.
Too Much Conway, Not Enough Twitty
Just days after this podcast was recorded, the world went sideways as a result of the tragic and senseless murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. Like you, we’re outraged and doing our part through protesting police violence in our communities, raising awareness, and most importantly, educating ourselves on privilege and racism. Both of us have always had one goal in mind each time we sit behind the mic – add some levity to counter the insanity in the world. We hope we succeeded.
