Vivian Kane (@viv_kane) and Brock Wilbur (@brockwilbur) navigate a new state and a new state of mind after moving from LA to Kansas City in pursuit of... a lot of things. Cool people doing cool things come to talk and we all find the happiness we deserve (or at least get some drinks in us.)

Rachel McCarthy James Solves A Murder
Rachel McCarthy James (@rmccarthyjames) joins us to discuss her award-winning book The Man From The Train, and how her and her father solved a 100+ year old serial killer case. Then, there is a discussion of how axe murders are more common than you think. Because that's what Rachel does. She's an axe murderer. JK. Or maybe not? Tune in!
Leslie Butsch Fights For Your Reproductive Rights
Community organizer Leslie Butsch from Planned Parenthood Great Plains stops by to talk about talking to politicians, phone banks, holding rallies, and generally making sure people don't forget that reproductive rights are under attack. Viv and Brock talk about the highs and lows of lobbying at the state capitol with Leslie, and then some slightly less heavy things are discussed.
Adam Roberts Instills Us With Panic (Fest)

Please share and check out the fest! https://panicfilmfest.com/ and https://screenland.com/armour/
Orrin Grey Gives Us The Positive Spookies
Author Orrin Grey stops by for a Halloween episode with Brock Wilbur and Vivian Kane. Yeah, our Halloween episode is coming out on November 7th. That's fine. We also talk some bad anger words about someone that we already know lost the election for their missteps. We're all bummed. This Halloween nonsense should be fun. Goddammit. Goddammit. Anyway, Orrin is a delight.
Jonathan Bradley Welch Knows Your Secrets
Vivian Kane and Brock Wilbur do a rare call-in episode with Jonathan Bradley Welch. As a brutally informed, former political operative, he's the guest that this week requires. Issues from across the entire administration are tackled in order of crushing emotional pain, and then JBW discusses ways to get involved and/or an episode of Unsolved Mysteries with Robert Stack. We're all having a time.
Always Interesting to see the perspective of someone moving to Missouri
The first few episodes sound like the couple thinks what the hell are we doing here. But will be curious to see if over time they think of Missouri as their home. Great quality.
So fun so smart
These two are great! They’re both so witty and hilarious. They open my eyes to new perspectives all the time.
Fellow Missourian!!! Come see us in como!!
