Each week Anthony Desamito (@AnthonyDesamito) and Genevieve Rice (@genevieverice) invite a guest comedian to watch an episode of THE GOLDEN GIRLS and they discuss its greatness just for you!
Interview With Golden Girls Writer Marc Cherry
*Drumroll... * We had the absolutely amazing Marc Cherry (Golden Girls writer/producer, Desperate Housewives creator, Why Women Kill on CBS All Access) on the Golden Girls podcast!!! We sat in the beautiful pool house in Marc's home in Los Angeles and chatted about his time working for The Golden Girls. It was a nostalgic, engaging fun time and we learned many things about the actresses, his life struggling to make it as a writer and the thrills & phenomena that is the Golden Girls cult following. Long live the Golden Girls! Music by Mike Dennison (@mikd33) and Brian Kokernak (@kokernutz).
The Golden Girls' 1988 Royal Variety Performance with Sari Beliak and Courtney Wahlstrom
We watched the Golden Girls' performance for the Queen of England during the 1988 Royal Variety Performance overseas. We gathered round once again and invited, friend of the show, Sari Beliak (@thecrassceiling, The Onion, Reductress) and Courtney Wahlstrom (@bonecrusherqueen, The Bro Show, Big Pine Comedy Festival) the Genevieve's house to talk all about the Golden Girls' visit to the London Palladium Theatre. It was something completely new to us, strange but befitting. It was a great time!!! Listen, follow, more to come! Music by Mike Dennison (@mikd33) and Brian Kokernak (@kokernutz).

The Golden Girls: Their Greatest Moments TV Special with Tony Tripoli
We are back for this very special episode of TyFBaP with the most amazing human ever, the insightful Tony Tripoli (@TonyTripoli, E!'s Fashion Police with Joan Rivers, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List)! We watched the Golden Girls TV special filmed 11 years after the series ended in 2003 with the most awkward interviews from the cast, all except Sophia. It was The Room of TV specials, amazing AND terrible. Just listen to our recap and also the special is on YouTube... we really let it all out about so many things. We talked about Blanche's intervention, drunk dialing the cast & crew and sexual harassment pranks on set. Music by Mike Dennison (@mikd33) and Brian Kokernak (@kokernutz).
LIVE! The Golden Girls Ep 180 One Flew Out of the Cuckoo's Nest Part 2 with Maggie Maye, Valerie Tosi and Bryan Vokey
We're LIVE in L.A. and it's the FINALE PART 2!!! We had the wonderful Maggie Maye, (@Maggiemayehaha, CONAN, Gotham Comedy Live) Valerie Tosi (@valerie_tosi, Buzzfeed, The Mermaid Comedy Hour) and Bryan Vokey (@BryanJVokey, No Sir I Don't Like It podcast, Adrenaline) on the very LAST episode of Thank You for Being a Podcast. We had cheesecake and drank wine at The Clubhouse in Los Angeles as we watched the very last episode of the series, the one in which Dorothy gets married to Lucas, played by the incomparable Leslie Nielsen. As this happens, Sophia and Rose have to decide where they're going to live. Also, Stan surprises Dorothy at the very last minute. We talked about stand-up sets at weddings, sparkly baked potato wedding dresses and Freddy Peterson (wink!).
We've had 173 great episodes, over 200 guests, for over 3.5 years, we've grewn so much from this experience and we would like to sincerely thank everyone who listened to us, supported us and we hope you enjoyed our show! Stay subscribed for extras!

LIVE! The Golden Girls Ep 179 One Flew Out of the Cuckoo's Nest Part 1 with Everett Byram and Daniel Moquin
It's the SERIES FINALE PART ONE! LIVE! We can't believe it! We had so much fun with Everett Byram (@rad_milk, Owned by Steve Harvey on Live TV, Buzzfeed) and Daniel Moquin (@notdanielmoquin, Boy's Club, SOVO Magazine) as we ate four types of cheesecake and sang the Golden Girls theme song! It was a proposal-sode, of course! It was the one where Blanche tricks Dorothy into going on a date with her uncle, so she can have a one-night-stand with a tennis instructor. So her date Lucas, and Dorothy decide to play a prank on Blanche and pretend that they fell in love and are set to be married! Only thing is, they really fall in love. Also, Rose and Sophia hate each other and Sophia is kind of racist. We talked about the movie Babe 3: Single Hot Dog, human crabficking and necking... lots of necking. Music by Mike Dennison (@mikd33) and Brian Kokernak (@kokernutz).
Major change of heart
I will say I initially didn’t care for this podcast because of all the nonstop laughing. But I gotta say the more I listened the more I have grown to love Genevieve and Anthony. I love their chemistry and the dry humor. And of course their knowledge of the GG. I’m going to be sad when it’s over.
Are you SURE you’re Golden Girl fans?
In several of your episodes, you don’t really don’t sound much like Golden Girl fans. It’s kind of awkward.
Was really looking forward to this as I love The Golden Girls. But this was so painful to listen too. The lack of knowledge was surprising. Not knowing where Blanche was from etc. don’t waste your time. Would be better with someone who was actually around when it was on. And all the laughing and giggling got old quick.
