Cheers, Stomps & Whistles (general)

Hey friends - welcome to the description for Silly Pancakes! A body of text that’s (almost) as exciting as the actual podcast…almost.

Today on the show, we have the funny and talented, busy and creative, one and only, Mary Holland! Mary is a comedian/actress from Los Angeles and can currently be seen in the STARZ original series, Blunt Talk (Saturdays 9pm). Check it out! You can also see her and her team JV in the show #ThrowbackFriday (Fridays at 11pm - UCB Franklin).

Mary and I sit down and chit-chat about oodles of fun stuff - ranging from travel, to education, to dreams, to acting, to comedy and more. This is an amazing conversation and I’m so thrilled that I got the opportunity to have it.

This week, I got the chance to sit down and chat with my good friend - an incredibly creative, funny person - Bethany Radloff! Beth is one fifth of the super-duper wonderful indie improv team Girl Crazy and we had the most amazing lil’ chit-chat! In this episode, we discuss comedy, art, school, parents, relationships and what it means to be a comedian. Oh man - introspection.

Howdy, podcast peeps. How’s it hanging?

That was so incredibly annoying and I apologize.


ANYWAYS - welcome one and all to the wild, wonderful and wacky Silly Pancakes podcast description. We’re going to have some fun. Are we? No. No, we probably won’t…this isn’t even the episode, it’s something ATTACHED to an episode. No one cares about this.

Are you still there? Are you still reading?

What is the answer to life?


You knew that.


Let’s get on with this…okay! Today on the podcast, I had the wonderful opportunity to chat with one of my good friends and a person that I look up to a great deal, Mr. Jeff Zuschlag.

We dive in deep in this episode and discuss oodles of topics from childhood, to parents, to creativity, to art, to life, to death, to love, to, to, to, to, to…TO! Okay...I'm done.

I hope you crazy kids enjoy this episode as much as I do.
