    6:16 Intro of Guests

    David Highfield and Heather Abraham: Pittsburgh Today Live’s power duo had their game faces on… until one of the two rely on a made-up-word as an answer. David’s lip syncing is average, but strategies eventually come into play while they shed a light for the KDKA-TV Turkey Fund and expand on avocado toast as a party pleaser (but really, cosmos).  

    Natalie Bencivenga and Sara Bauknecht: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette gals set the seen on stage for a friendly competition, with fun and flare, all in the support of SisterFriend. Listen as the PG girls just want to have fun, read hot gossip, and bring chicken (just chicken?) to liven up a party with the Backstreet Boys bumpin’!

    Jack Hunt “Johnny Angel” and Mary Lou Hunt: Long-lasting lovebirds, Johnny Angel and Mary Lou head to the stage in support of the Community Liver Alliance and learn new things along the way like vacay-packing strategies, Cher re-enactments and daydreams of hitting the jack pot with a hot tub in Naples, Florida. Hear from the experts of love as they bring charm and wit as their best defense to conquering all in the name of love for liver disease support.

    Kathleen and Kyle Conway: The cutest YaJagoff fan couple award goes to… the Conways! Kathleen and Kyle surprise the audience by jumping on stage to test their relationship with who needs a Peloton bike more and who can’t stand the madness of scratching. Either way, the two fit perfectly on stage to deliver some laughable moments!

    Dave and Sue Roscoe: Surprise!- Another audience couple joins the stage with chuckles and cackles to answer Rach and John questions (which one’s are better?) that may just have them more confused in really knowing each other. Dave and Sue may not be here to win points, but they are here for a good time!

My Favorite Podcast

As a podcaster myself, I know how difficult it is to produce a good show. The YaJagoff team knocks it out of the park! It's my favorite podcast because of the excellent Pittsburgh chat, but because you get to learn everything that's going on in town. Listen, especially if you're a proud Pittsburgh!
