    Everybody Loves Naked Phone Calls

    Everybody Loves Naked Phone Calls

    It's another Naked Call In extravaganza as Phil and David answer YOUR listener questions and give the deep, thought provoking kind of answers you're looking for! Or maybe it's a little less serious and they discuss things like Steely Dan, the laws of attraction and positive people's effects on the world, Phil's upcoming tour (with a very exciting stop in Chicago), and the good and bad architecture of big cities.

    Alex Edelman, To The MAX! And HBO!

    To celebrate his brilliantly funny and profound one man show "Just For Us" coming to HBO this Saturday night at 10PM  and then streaming on MAX after that,  Phil and David are revisiting their wonderful "Lunch" with internationally touring comedian Alex Edelman whose acclaimed, brilliantly funny one man show, "Just For Us" opened off-Broadway in 2022 before premiering on Broadway in 2023; it was named "New York Times" Critic’s Pick both times and has already won an Obie. Alex broke bread -- okay, Courage Bagels -- at Phil's house. Alex brought along a surprise mutual friend, the great TV writer Jenji Kohan (creator of "Weeds" and "Orange Is The New Black") who will be a future guest. Please note: this free-flowing and fun conversation -- in which Norman Lear is discussed -- was recorded shortly before Lear's recent death.

A Whole Lotta Life

This episode spans a timeline full of life and love. Yes everybody loves Phil but with David we get so naked. Not that we want to feed a naked Phil, mind you. Thank you, guys.

These two amazingly talented writers bring their craft to the table where we meet Donny Osmond. The idea is furtherest from in considering how these two would celebrate the 100 milestone. And yet this concept sums up this podcast. The sheer charm that these three share in hearing Donny’s stories is truly special. You gotta have a listen.

Please let this just be Phil’s show

David seems to have had quite the career that’s for certain. I don’t need to know about this fact every episode nor have him step on guest’s answers/not let them answer or just fumble and stumble around. Season 1 I was able to handle this but no mas. Sorry but have to say it as this is an annoyance every episode.

Your Donny Osmond interview was exceptional!

I am looking forward to downloading some more episodes!
