EPISODE 106: CORY CAVIN

This week, Sara and Nikki investigate the dangerously awesome allure of Vicodin and share tales of stepping back from the painkilling brink. Though he’s made a couple cameos in the past, this episode marks Cory Cavin's (@corycavin, the Talking Pee-approved webseries Model Wife) first official appearance on YHTBT. He and Sara boil down the origins of their long friendship and the trio of now-coworkers commune on nicknames, head-fashion, and Christian in-jokes. When Sara bounces early, the two stragglers recall their most awkward encounters and generally make up for the Nikkilessness of Cory’s first kinda episode. Carpet drapem, hobots.

EPISODE 105: JIM & JEANIE GAFFIGAN

This week, Sara and Nikki relive their surreal evening spent amongst random celebrities and teenage screams.  Comedy power couple Jim and Jeannie Gaffigan (Comedy Central, Twitter & Twitter) make their triumphant return to the podcast and speculate about the pitfalls of Taylor-level fame.  Jim’s new book, Dad is Fat, drops next week, but you should preorder a copy now just in case.  Written with Jeannie and inspired by their five kids, the book is an astonishingly hilarious and oppressively addicting collection of essays on fatherhood.  For the rest of the hour, the gang discusses collaborating with a writing partner, treating stand-up as therapy, and a rare definition of the word “galley”.

Hey, remember a while back when Nikki recorded a special up in Boston?  Well that set premieres this Friday May 3rd at 12 midnight/11c, kicking off Comedy Central’s new season of The Half Hour.  Read this now, watch that then.

EPISODE 104: AL MADRIGAL

This week, Sara and Nikki reannounce the renewal of their really great TV show Nikki & Sara LIVE (thanks for watching!) before quickly introducing their guest, comedian Al Madrigal (The Daily Show, @almadrigal).  Al’s new standup special Why is the Rabbit Crying? premieres on Comedy Central this Friday April 26, making this episode the perfect opportunity to reflect upon the grueling road sets and iffy TV spots that have gotten him this far.  It’s “gratitude and caution”, Sara points out, that keep a comic sane as he strives through those early days, dreaming of a time when he’ll have earned the respect and admiration of both his peers and his cussing kid cousins.

EPISODE 103: SUE COSTELLO

This week, Sara and Nikki are personally invited to a Taylor Swift gig out in Jersey and neither snow nor rain nor violent food poisoning will stay these girls from meeting Swift herself.  Comic and birthday girl Sue Costello (@suecostello, The Fighter, TV everything) takes the ladies through her one-woman show I Wasn’t Trying To Be Funny for which she’s currently raising money to bring to a broader audience through Kickstarter (help her out!).  The show covers Sue’s entire comedic career thus far, from the highs of being discovered at an elderly bringer show to the improbably unlucky lows of jealous mentors and hindering home runs, and how through it all she’s maintained her trademark candor and zeal.

In closing, Nikki implores you to watch Nikki & Sara LIVE on MTV Tuesday at 11pm/10c.  Trust her, she’s an expert in these things.

EPISODE 102: CHRIS FAIRBANKS

This week, Sara and Nikki quash a bout of podcaster’s block by brainstorming new ways for Nikki to find dates.  Their guest Chris Fairbanks (@chrisfairbanks, Comedy Central, truTV’s World’s Dumbest), a comic who graced the stage at YHTBT's first live taping, takes this theme and runs with it first through the dark depths of sexual insanity and later around the whimsies of deceptive dating and pubic quilts.  To close, the three talk pee about Chris’s CD, friend-of-the-‘cast Myq Kaplan's existence, and Buzzfeeder @LouisPeitzman's timely tweets.


Studies show the absolute best way to spend your Tuesday nights from 11pm/10c on is watching Nikki & Sara LIVE on MTV, so be sure to be there as well.

EPISODE 101: MOSHE KASHER

This week, Sara and Nikki declassify the events surrounding last week’s torrent of celebrity encounters, codenamed Zero Dark Flirty.  Comic Moshe Kasher (@moshekasher, The Champs podcast) barely makes it past MTV’s team of New World Order security guards in time to plug his shows at Carolines with Natasha Leggero this very weekend and reminisce about his last barfight.  Moshe, whose dark and hilarious memoir Kasher in the Rye was published last year, has been cutting his way through the jungle of the LA TV biz and he comes armed with tales of treacherous table-reads and wise words for tackling rampant self-doubt.  The gang talks a little pee about Nikki’s documented love for Fitzdog Radio, Sara’s documented love for Nikki, and Moshe’s dreams coming true vis-à-vis those Carolines shows (which, by the way, you should go to).

Hark: Pope Francis has decreed that you, dear sinner, should check out Nikki & Sara LIVE every Tuesday at 11pm/10c on MTV.  It will make you laugh and save your soul.

EPISODE 100: MIKE BIRBIGLIA

This week, Sara and Nikki just barely evade the censors and then react to Nikki’s illicit half hour special gifts.  To celebrate their first triple-digit episode, the ladies entertain one of their biggest guests yet: Mike Birbiglia (@birbigs).  In Sara’s humble office, the trio kick around some themes Mike covered in his recent movie Sleepwalk with Me, like crazy dreams and on-stage stress.  Later, they get to some he left out too, like the isolation of marriage and the optimism of cell division.  Plus Kanye.  They really cover it all.  Talking Pee singles out The Ben Show, that new Baumbach movie, a positive Internet interaction, and Maria Bamford's comedian-approved comedy.  Here's to the next hundred.

And be sure to watch Nikki & Sara LIVE Tuesdays at 11pm/10c on MTV because you deserve it.
