Flopcast 368: Being a Walking Sponge
It's an extra-goofy show, because we're recording from separate remote locations, AND our recording equipment keeps malfunctioning! But we're here anyway, just for you. And this random catch-up sort of show features: Joe Cool vs. Mr. Cool; Star Wars burlesque; stand-up comedy with Dana Gould, Bobcat Goldthwait, and friends; Queen Jessica Mercy at the Watch City Steampunk Festival; our ESO Network boss visiting New England to check up on us; a rare solo show from Letters to Cleo frontwoman (and our favorite singer) Kay Hanley; the Speak Up storytelling podcast live in Connecticut; burritos and benefits in Rhode Island; Kornflake's rain-soaked 5K walk; and Kevin and Brittany (of Good Enough Cosplay) reporting live from their weird 5K run. (But was it really 5K?) Enjoy, as we all collapse in exhaustion.
Snoopy's alter ego Joe Cool debuted in a Peanuts strip on May 27, 1971.
Mr. Floppy from Unhappily Ever After, a show neither Kevin nor the Mayor had heard of, was voiced by Bobcat Goldthwait. Kevin recently saw him on The Show With Two Heads tour with Dana Gould and friend of the Flopcast Ken Reid.
