Lisa and Sam Shake Their Heads At Us



E105 – A special crossover interview between I Shake My Head’s Lisa and Sam and us! We re-aired this PodFix Presents PodSix episode because it was such fun that we had to share! The six vague important questions that we were asked include (1) Is there any topic that the two of us won’t talk about? This brings up the sneaky listeners and sex talk right off the bat. (2) Do you have any regrets about what you’ve said on your podcast? Hello editing and haters! (3) What do we think of garden gnomes? The answer takes a big hilarious swinging turn! (4) What are your thoughts on switching to Canadian currency including loonies and toonies? What are loonies and toonies? We Americans get schooled! Be sure to hear Weens quote On Golden Pond – the Norms, Loon! (5) If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Find out what we both choose and its dopamine high. Plus hot dog talk, cinnamon buns, and salty v sweet foods. Finally (6) Would you rather go into the past or into the future to meet family? This question leads to family secrets, nature vs nurture, hot great grandpa talk, and who Weens was in a past life regression! Psychic medium Patti Negri, vampire Father Sebastian, the Padres baseball team, and Oprah make an appearance as we close it out too, so be sure to listen!

Steve Ferrone, Drummer of Tom Petty, Duran Duran, Clapton & More



E101 – We had the honor of interviewing esteemed jazz, rock, and R&B drummer Steve Ferrone. You have definitely heard his work – just look at this bio below. In this recording, he gets candid about love, family, dalliances, the rock and roll lifestyle, and explains some life changes he has made for the better. We learn about the mods and rockers of Brighton Beach in the 60’s and how Steve’s first blues band opened for The Who. Steve and Julianne talk shop regarding syncopation and style – Pretty Purdie, Steve Gadd, and Led Zeppelin to name a few. When asked about nerves, traveling, and groupies, we heard some funny, surprising stories! Duran Duran played a big role during Stephen’s busiest year, when he also played with George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and was in the Saturday Night Live band. We figured out the connection between Questlove and Average White Band. And Julianne’s Unchained questions inspire a great Johnny Cash impression! Find out which soap opera Steve was in, which musicians and moments rendered him star-struck, including recalling what it was like to record at Abbey Road. We also hear the amazing story of Prince performing George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” during his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Fans of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers wrote in some questions, so we find out about a reunion, conflict, grief, what life was really like in the band, and insight into the person that Tom Petty was.

Steve has played with Average White Band, Chaka Khan, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Duran Duran, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Whitney Houston, Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Dire Straits, Aerosmith, Morrissey-Mullen, Bee Gees, Cyndi Lauper, Bette Midler, Stevie Nicks, Paul Simon, Steve Winwood, Tracey Chapman, Mick Jagger, George Benson, Peter Frampton, Anita Baker, Bryan Ferry, Rick James, Slash, Scritti Politti, Pooh and more.

Ratty New Year!



E99 – We’ve been Mousing and Weening since December 2017 so this marks our three year anniversary of the podcast! Thank you to everyone for supporting us and listening! We celebrate by talking all about the party that some Christmas rats threw in Julianne’s kitchen and futon and closet and lingerie drawer. We even get a pop-in interview (the sweetest ever!) with the pest control man who happens to interrupt our recording! All this hot rat talk naturally gets us onto the subject of men so we create some steamy Damon, DiCaprio, Martin and Banderas sandwiches. After some past Argentine boyfriend reminiscing, we jump back to reality and recap Christmas in Idaho. It was a great visit full of skeet shooting, holiday traditions, and Cowboy Denny bear poking. We segue into Juls’ story of an ex throwing her into a bear, and an injurious snowboarding photo adventure. And now that we’re back in California, we’re in quarantine and questioning bubbles. We are hearing about more and more people close to us catching covid, which is not a fun subject. Be careful everyone! Back to fun romantic memories of New Years and our goals for 2021. Ah, it’s fun to relive these Tahoe, New York, Times Square crowd stories. Remember crowds?! We close this with a shoutout song to all of the podcasts we’ve mentioned in past episodes.

Joyce Is Choice



E97 – Our mom was out to California to visit and we roped her into an early morning recording! Mouse, dressed like Larry King, goes in for some digs. And Weens, dressed like Liberace, gets back with some jabs as we revert to our sibling rivalry days of fighting for mom’s attention. Laugh along at the stories of pets, cowboys, nicknames, cookies, feminism, and altercations at the dentist office. We reminisce about our psychic visit, our dad and friend who passed away, sing a little impromptu gospel, and hear a heartwarming story about our mom’s big brother, our Uncle Bill, to whom this episode is dedicated. This is a lighthearted peek into a day in our life so come join the family! Hope you enjoy it, as we all jump into the holiday season!

Actor W. Earl Brown: Deadwood, Bloodworth, Country & More – Part 2



E93 – We continue the conversation with W. Earl Brown, Deadwood’s ‘Dan Dority’, to find out details including the personal story behind the famous eyeball fight scene, how Jerry Cantrell of Alice in Chains and ZZ Top are involved, why the award-winning HBO series by David Milch was abruptly cancelled, and how the movie came about, giving the story and its actors closure. We sneak in another fight scene question, this one with Joaquin Phoenix in Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master. Also jump into Earl’s screenplay adaptation of his own personal Catcher in the Rye, Provinces of Night, to become the movie Bloodworth, starring Val Kilmer, Kris Kristofferson, Hillary Duff, Dwight Yoakam, Frances Conroy, and Reece Thompson. The personal family stories and side tales about Kris Kristofferson are not to be missed, as we talk about country music, rock music, and all three of our personal connections with musicians like Steve Earle, Hank Williams, and Dolly Parton. We discuss his country band Sacred Cowboys and his funny new short film Dad Band with possible future installations! Be sure to see work Earl has done, such as playing Sheriff Hugo Root on Preacher, and keep an eye on the exciting future of this wonderful actor, writer, and musician!

Actor W. Earl Brown: Scream, Deadwood and More – Pt 1



E92 – We’re excited to bring you the first half of our inspiring interview with W. Earl Brown, a very talented and prolific actor that you’ve seen as the main enforcer and right-hand man Dan Dority in HBO’s Deadwood, as Warren in There’s Something About Mary (of franks and beans fame!), as Kenny the news cameraman in Scream, and as the sheriff in Preacher, just to name a few of his works. He is also an amazing storyteller, screenwriter, producer, musician, and wonderful human being. Hear behind the scenes details about his work and inspirations, many from darker places, with stories and mentions about Lemmy from Motorhead, Elijah Wood, Wes Craven, Jamie Kennedy, Johnny Depp, Drew Barrymore, the Farrelly brothers, Ben Stiller, Chris Elliott, David Milch, Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Cusak, Chris Farley, Timothy Olyphant, Steve Earle, Townes Van Zandt and more. We learn his backstory from Kentucky to Chicago to LA, his trajectory in successful films and series, his advice to new actors, and his personal, current, and upcoming projects like Bloodworth and Dad Band. If you are a fan of comedy, horror, or westerns, or a fan of rock, metal, or country music, you will find inspiration in this episode, full of wonderful nuggets of wisdom and vulnerability from the perspective of a seasoned actor, husband, father, and friend.
