We have some fun new press coverage to share with you today!
We spoke with Stephanie at Talking Comics. Stephanie found us when we put a call out on Twitter saying this:
We were interested in having a more balanced set of interviews. We love talking to everybody, but we suspected that we might get more out of an interview when talking to a person who was a woman (for example, men tend to ask a lot of the same “what is it like to be a woman” and “since when do geek girls exist” questions, and we’d love to talk about other things). And hey—we were right, at least in Stephanie’s case.
Stephanie is an amazing interviewer and I was super interested in her questions and this conversation. Her podcast is called “Talking Comics” but we talked about a lot more than comics. Procrastination, quitting your job with and without a safety net, Nutella lattes, our future as the Aunts from Sabrina the Teenage Witch, which super villain Aubrey wants to be, and our ideal fictional supergroup. Listen to Talking Comics!
We sat down in our studio and chatted with Sean from the Portland Cool Podcast. This was fun, Sean is just starting up his podcast and we met in an improv class! From what I remember, we talked about improv, being cool, the open mic scene, our first album, and probably the cat keyboard? That usually happens. Enjoy it!
Big news, everyone! We are taking our awesome geek-centric variety show ON THE ROAD! Each show is a unique nerd-weird hug, featuring songs by The Doubleclicks, jokes from comedian Joseph Scrimshaw (Wits, Rifftrax), plus guests and games!
