Our 3rd Week!

As I was writing the title of this blog post, I thought, “I wonder how many weeks I can write Our XX week before it gets too weird?” Like won’t it be weird years from now writing, “our 156th week”? Which then got me thinking about how funny it was when we were babies and we were 12 weeks then 16 weeks old and how if we kept that up, I would tell people I am 2,102 weeks old! It just doesn’t have the same ring to it. Suffice to say, I guess that won’t always be the title of these recaps, but it certainly works while my show is still a baby!

This week was so good that I honestly don’t know if I should keep going or just quit while I am ahead! (Don’t worry, nothing is going to stop this train right now). I still loved this week in spite of the fact that I started Monday’s show with the following sentence, “Well, my worst nightmare has come true!” It turns out the studio is TOO close to the Oscars and my co-host, Cindy Hooker, my guest Lizza Morales and myself were all incredibly late to the show. I managed to start the show on time, but it was a good 15 minutes until I had any company in the studio. It all worked out though and we had more fun recapping the Oscars than we had watching them!

On Tuesday, my co-host Jeff and I discussed part two about how to write out your goals and the importance of forgiving the year before to make room for the year ahead. We also welcomed singer/songrwriter Graham Colton to the studio who discussed the ever changing landscape of the music industry as well as making his new album with the help of fans and Kickstarter. We also discussed this fantastic article by Teresa Porter called So You’re Feeling Too Fat To Be Photographed. It hit a lot of nerves and I consider it a must read!

Geri Jewell and Drew Pokorny

On Wednesday, my friend Drew Pokorny from Dirty Pop with Lance Bass, joined me in the studio as my co-host to help me welcome my guests, Tom Adler and Geri Jewell. Tom is an entrepreneur who has created the Gay Yellow Book, a phone directory and bible of sorts for the gay community. The guide is full of businesses that are gay friendly and supportive, but also includes travel destinations, articles and even recipes. Then we

were joined in the studio by, what I have now declared, my favorite interview I have ever done, with Geri Jewell. Geri is most affectionately remembered as Cousin Geri from The Facts of Life, but she was in to discuss her new audio book of her memoir, “I’m Walking As Straight As I Can“. For someone who has been met with severe challenges since the moment she was born, she radiates a light and beauty that reminds you that life really is all that you make of it.

Thursday we were joined in the studio by Tim Guinee, who can currently be seen in NBC’s  Revolution, but look up his film credits and you will realize that you have seen him in just about everything. He shared some great life practices with us, including the fact that he goes for a walk every morning and finds at least one new thing to appreciate and love. He’s walking the walk. Later in the show, the iconic Didi Conn, who is belovedly remembered as Frenchie from Grease, called in to discuss the play she is starring in Los Angeles called A Heap Of Livin’. Talking to her really was a pinch me moment!

Blu Sanders was our first guest this week!

We did it! And I couldn’t have done it without all of you who tuned in, listened, tweeted me during and after the show, logged into the chat room and participated during the show! It has been so many months since I was last on the air, I wasn’t sure if anyone would still be around to listen! So thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Our first show had my friend Eric Johnson co-hosting while singer-songwriter and photographer, Blu Sanders joined us as our first guest! We talked Grammys, songwriting and following our dreams. Thanks to you all tuning in, you are allowing me to live mine! Everything was going so well until the last 5 minutes when we lost power, to the whole studio! Continue reading

Win a call from Jeff and Jordan

As you know, I have been very open about needing to raise $5,000 to help pay for our show’s new expenses. So in an attempt to make it worth your while, instead of just a flat donation (which is of course ALWAYS welcome), we have decided to make a little raffle. Big Brother and Amazing Race favorites Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd will be calling in to The Baub Show on Sunday November 20th for the full hour and have graciously trusted me to connect them with a few of their fans! During that time, we will be pulling 5 names out of a bowl and calling 5 lucky winners (one at a time) who will have the opportunity to say hi, express love or ask a question directly to Jeff and Jordan. updated: Jeff has decided to up the ante and is throwing in 5 autographs from the couple as well. DOUBLE UPDATE: because many of you have expressed interest, but don’t feel comfortable saying hi on the show, the winners will be drawn live on the air and the calls will be scheduled for a later time in private.


Want to be entered for the raffle? Easy! For every $5 you donate to the show, your name will be entered one time (meaning if you donate $5, your name will be entered once and if you donate $50, your name will be entered 10 times).

HOW TO DONATE Continue reading
