Madigan’s Pubcast

Hosted ByKathleen Madigan

Comedian Kathleen Madigan opens her Pub every week to talk about everything and anything fun in her world. Light bar conversations ranging from her parents to unsolved mysteries, sports to chimpanzee documentaries.

A Fake Florida Surgeon, WeWork, & The Golden City of Luxor

Kathleen opens the show drinking a Naked Pig Pale Ale from Back Forty Brewing in Gadsden, AL. She shares with listeners her excitement over the St. Louis Cardinals’ Opening Day, describing the Clydesdales parading around the ballpark and the Cardinal HOF players waving to fans.

UPDATE ON KATHLEEN’S QUEEN’S COURT: In an update on her Queens, Kathleen advises that the Court has been relatively quiet this week. HOWEVER, Dolly Parton’s new ice cream release literally broke the internet on launch day, halting sales so that exclusive inventory was only available via eBay for $1,000 PER pint.

“BAD GOOD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen drove to Nashville and samples the limited released Taco Bell Crispy Chicken SandwichTaco (in both Spicy and Original) and recommends that Termites stick with their favorite taco. She also recommends ordering a side of Jimmy John’s Kickin’ Ranch with any sandwich and sticking with regular Cheez-Its over their new “fancier” Cheez It Snap’d. Kathleen moves on to taste Hidden Valley Ranch Coleslaw dressing and is a massive fan of putting Waffle House’s secret Waffle Sauce on ANYTHING.

CHINA’S DIGITAL CRYPTO MINT: In continuing with Kathleen’s obsession with cryptocurrency, she reads an article from the Wall Street Journal announcing that the Chinese government is minting cash digitally, turning legal financial tender into computer code.

TOM BRADY LAUNCHES NFT COMPANY: Kathleen has been working the Termites through the idea of NFT’s and is excited to share a release that Tom Brady is launching an NFT (non-fungible token) company called Autograph. The company will sell digital collectibles, as well as host live auctions as well as physical product drops, and exclusive in-person experiences.

THE DOWNFALL OF WEWORK: After watching the WeWork documentary on Hulu, she describes the birth of the company and the background of its founders. After discussing the numerous concepts developed by the group, Kathleen compares the WeWork concept to her short time writing on a Comedy Central show with Lewis Black, noting that although she had some fun she ALSO reconfirmed that she shouldn’t have a job with a daily schedule OR where has to work around a “team’s” eating schedule. Kathleen then confidently proclaims herself an “Old-School Gen Z’er.”

FLORIDA’S FAKE PLASTIC SURGEON: Kathleen reads a horrific article out of Florida describing the actions of Alcalira De Rodriguez, a practitioner in Dural, FL who was arrested in the middle of performing a nose job without any medical background. Kathleen describes a “fake surgery” that she performed in the Sydney Marriott on her dad’s request to remove a cyst from his neck, which only involved a highball and a hot needle from a hotel sewing kit.

VALENTINE’S DAY INCEST MURDER: Yep, that sums it up. Kathleen reads a twisted murder plot out of West Virginia, where a woman has pleaded guilty to murdering her sister’s boyfriend in a sick Valentine’s Day ‘game’ involving Meth that was set up by the sister and their father so the pair could get married. This MIGHT need to be read multiple times to comprehend ☺

LOST GOLDEN CITY OF LUXOR FOUND: Kathleen finishes the Pubcast by sharing an article involving the discovery of the Golden City, which dates from 1391 to 1353 BC. The city continued to be used by pharaohs Ay and Tutankhamun, whose nearly intact tomb was discovered in the Valley of the Kings.

WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends watching the documentary “WeWork” on Hulu.
