The Paper Machete Radio Magazine 9/3/11: The Great Flood

When it rains outside the Horseshoe, it rains inside the Horseshoe. But that didn't put a damper on things! We have Julia Sweeney ragging on strollers at the acquarium. Stephanie McCanles comments on reality television and the Emmy season. Bond Benton reports on pro-wrestling. Michael Patrick Thornton with Ed Flynn, a famous LA Storm Trooper, talks politics. Paper Thick Walls wails along with the storm. As usual, if you can hear us, this magazine is LIVE. Download it here, or listen below. And a shoutout to Aadam Jacobs, who recorded the whole thing.

On Saturday, The Paper Machete takes on America, which is obviously falling apart at the seams. 9/11, the post office, pro-football, and the end of summer will all be discussed. People joining us; Megan Stielstra of Second Story; Benno Nelson from the New Colony Theatre; writer and editor Joel Reese; comedian Neil Arsenty, and Sad Brad Smith. With music from Chris Damiano. Be sure to be there, as Christopher Piatt will reveal his real talents!
