This is not an episode.  I mean...  It's kind of an episode.  But it's a short episode?  IT'S NOT AN EPISODE.  Look, the show has been on hiatus, and it's not back yet.  But it's ALMOST back.  And Anna and Dave wanted to let you know that it's almost back, and talk about what they're gonna do when the show IS back, so they recorded this little teaser episode.  They joke and laugh and talk about their upcoming 2015 California tour (8/27 to 9/7), their live show in SF (8/28), their live show in Humboldt (9/5), and their live show in good ollllllll' Los Angeles (9/7).  And weekly episodes of the podcast return to Nerdist on 9/16!  They can't wait.  They just can't wait.

This week's guest is...  NO ONE.  Or...  EVERYONE!  It's just Anna and Dave this week.  They catch up.  They catch on the show, on their lives, and on their love of 90s radio hits.  They also make an announcement.  It's a saddening announcement, and also an exciting one.  They're broke, you see.  Broke, and overwhelmed, and having a hard time, and also doing great.  They have to take a break from doing the show for a few months, and they explain why.  They love you.  They'll see you in September.

This episode was recorded live at the Floodwater Comedy Festival in Iowa City, Iowa on April 19, 2015!  The fest was so fun.  Dave talks to Daniel Frana, who ran the festival, Quad Cities comedian and screamo keyboardist Andrew Cline, Chicago-based touring comedian Emily Galati, and the mortal soul of Des Moines comedy, Ryan Solomon.  Each brought their own weirdness to the table.  It was great.

Wendi Starling is a comedian who recently moved from Los Angeles to New York City.  She talks depression, and mental illness, and medication, and drug use, and she talks about rape.  She was raped.  She's very open about it.  It's heartbreaking, and so awful, and she talks about it in detail, both what happened then and what's happened since.  It's honestly impressive and brave how open she is about it.  This is also, as it happens, the first time Anna conducts the interview!  Dave's not there.  They make fun of him a little.

Joe Wagner is an insanely funny writer and performer in Los Angeles, California.  He and Dave are big fans of each other.  They talk about that, and love, and loving your friends, and romantic love, and being without romantic love, and walking alone through the streets of Los Angeles without romantic love and still feeling loved.  They also talk about loss.  Joe is afraid that he won't be able to handle his next great personal loss.

Tony Thaxton is a musician, writer, performer and podcaster based in Los Angeles, California.  He was also, for years, the drummer for the band Motion City Soundtrack!  He and Dave discuss that, and then move on to Tony's fear of getting yelled at.  He's scared at every moment of saying the wrong thing, and of getting yelled at for it.  They then move on to Tony's total lack of confidence, and Dave's total lack of confidence, and the episode devolves into them apologizing to each other until they fall asleep.

Mikal Cronin is a musician now based in Los Angeles, California!  Last time he and Dave talked, Mikal was living in San Francisco, where he'd lived for a long time.  Dave had him back on the show to discuss his feelings about his music and himself after recording his new album, MCIII.  The last time they talked, Mikal was frustrated and despondent about making music, and worried he couldn't do it.  Now that he's made a new (incredible) album, he and Dave revisit his feelings on creating again.  They also discuss wasting time, and focusing, and wasting too much time to focus.  They had fun.  Mikal's great.
