E48 – You are about to meet Bill Fuqua, a friend of Julianne’s from the mean streets of Hollywood. Hear his stories growing up in the same neighborhood as stars and songsters, from yesteryear to today, his daily view of Commissioner Gordon, and how close he got to the infamous Manson family and the murder scene of The Black Dahlia. What do Hollywood High, dancing peanuts, and The Gong Show have in common? Bill! How about King Louis XIV, coffee shops, and Tom Petty, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Nicks bandmates? Bill! We get hair and fashion tips and find out how he stands out in a crowd with his Wow Factor, plus share some of our own family memories with him while recording in Weens cozy but lo-fi living room. We learn about his wife strife and then get wooed by his rendition of the Mouse and Weens theme song. Enjoy this episode with our friend Bill!

E47 – Weens wrapped ABC’s hit show The Rookie and is going to fill her hiatus with creative endeavors Myers-Briggs style, even though it’s possible that Jung and Freud were full of BS. Weens is searching for her main gig, isn’t sure about being on stage, but loves improv and recalls watching Upright Citizens Brigade in New York for the first time. She took some UCB classes in LA, and then challenges Mouse on her comedy and improv skills. Mouse gets nervy when she lectures to gardeners, but she commands a room when it’s about sexual health. Go figure. Hear the exercise we both do on being an expert and see if you feel the fraud and imposter syndrome creeping in. We segue to hear about Mouse’s recent colonoscopy and get the play by play on what to expect under twilight anesthesia when you basically get roofied with fentanyl. Then take a delightful Jeep ride down memory lane, Dickens style, as Weens recounts caring for Mouse after oral surgery and why she still might be on America’s Most Wanted list.
