On episode 23 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan sits down at The Nerdist School in Los Angeles to talk with Amanda Salvatore and Jackie Rae Aubel of The Guilty Pleasure Podcast. Each week, the ladies bring on guests to discuss their guiltiest of pleasures, and they grill Ryan on his most guilty obsession; The X-Files.
In one of the longest-running science fiction series in network TV history, FBI special agents investigate unexplained, mind-bending cases known as "X-Files." Though the government is convinced that the outlandish reports are false, conspiracy theorist Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and realist Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), for most of the series, stop at nothing to prove that "the truth is out there."
Amanda, Jackie, and Ryan navigate their way through the insanely complex alien conspiracy throughout the series, the steamy sexual tension between Mulder and Scully, and where the show is heading when it returns for an eleventh season in early 2018. The truth is in this episode, and you have been given top secret access to listen now. TRUST NO ONE!
Jackie Rae Aubel is a writer, comedian, and producer based in Los Angeles. She has studied improv and sketch comedy at the Upright Citizen's Brigade (NY), the People's Improv Theatre (NY) and the Nerdist School (LA). For the past 5 years, she's written, produced and directed both live and scripted comedy. She's currently a writer and actor on the Nerdist School house sketch team, 'The Vanities'. She is also co-host and producer of the 'Guilty Pleasure Show' on Project Alpha and the 'Guilty Pleasure Podcast' on the Nerdist School Network.
Amanda Salvatore recently moved from her beloved New York to the ever sunny LA. She's loving her time here, but not so surprisingly misses Dollar Slice (specifically 99 Cent Express Pizza on 43rd and 8th). She used to sing and "dance" in musicals for many years but decided that writing jokes was a way more sensible life choice. She has studied improv and/or sketch writing with UCB, IO West, The Magnet, and The Nerdist School. She is a part of the improv group, The Vanities.
