Chris Fairbanks, Wayne Federman, Chris Taylor on Standup!



E50 – We chat with LA comics and podcasters Chris Fairbanks (Do You Need A Ride?) and Wayne Federman (The History of Standup), about nerves on stage, biggest fears, dating, the Adam Sandler special, and hygge! Hear about The Virgin Sacrifice show at Westside Comedy Theater hosted by Nicole Blaine with comedians Lachlan Patterson, Barry Rothbart, Laurie Kilmartin, and Bryan Callen. And we talk to The Virgin himself, friend and cameraman Chris Taylor, to hear what it was like to go up for the first time. Weens is open to trying standup herself and other vulnerable experiences, like getting back into acting, doing more creative collaborative projects, and even speed dating! Life is to be lived without fear and to connect in true relationships with others, so with that in mind, enjoy Mouse’s most awkward matchmaking moment ever, and our little Mother’s Day ditty to our sweet mom. Hooray!

Garry Shandling



E15 – We interview our mom about her personal Garry Shandling story after we watched the Judd Apatow documentary “The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling”. The story leads to our dads history as a football player who went from the University of Arizona to the New York Jets to the New England Patriots in the 1970’s. Our mom tells the story of their relationship and gives her feelings on our dad’s motivations and struggles. By our final discussion we end up seeing a lot of parallels between Garry Shandling and our father, who also went into the entertainment industry. Weens shares her thoughts on acting achievement and self-sabotage. It’s another episode to get to know us and our family This is us folks! We are being ourselves and we hope you gain something from it too. Music is “Palmetto Bug Stomp” written by Weens performed by Angelo Moore. Connect with us at mouseandweens@gmail.com


Deep Thoughts



E14 – Get to know our seriouser side, even though that’s not a word. Weens commutes home through LA while Mouse deals with mom guilt and effing up her kids. We wonder if our life paths were set as kids – baby Weens as a creative writer, and baby Mouse as a caretaker. We hit the hot, hot topics of weather, traffic, and road raging in teeny vehicles, then delve into Southern California wildfires and a little more self-analysis just to lighten things up. What do you do when friends and family show their political colors. Weens talks about seeing life through an actor’s eyes, a writer’s eyes, or from a give-no-effs perspective. We discuss friendships ending over Facebook fights, and when to be right or when to be kind. And we end on the light, light subject of what is the purpose of life.
