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.

The Gates of Hell, Ice Fishing Whores, & A Canadian Rogue Wave

Kathleen opens the show drinking a Bull Durham Light Ale, which she picked up on her recent weekend in North Carolina. She reviews the fun at the shows in Durham and Charlotte, and tells the Termites about her favorite BBQ restaurants in both cities: The Original Q Shack, and Mac’s Speed Shop.

“GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples Carolina Kettle Dill Pickle Chips, which she absolutely loves. She moves on to try Dean’s Sports Bar Nashville Hot Flavored Dip, which she doesn’t like and thinks it tastes more like BBQ sauce than Nashville Hot Chicken.

QUEEN’S COURT: Kathleen is excited to report that Queen Dolly has announced that she is giving away free college tuition to all 11,000 employees of her Dollywood Theme Park, and will cover 100% of employees’ tuition, fees, and books.

UPDATES: Kathleen gives updates on her thoughts on the Ram’s Super Bowl win, the St. Louis gun-pointing McCluskey’s, and the missing cobra in Grand Prairie TX.

THE TINDER SWINDLER: Kathleen is amazed at the delusion of a few women’s actions in the name of “true love” as outlined in the new Netflix documentary “The Tinder Swindler.” Shimon Hayut, the con man at the center of the show, allegedly met women on Tinder before swindling them for millions of dollars after catfishing them into believing he was the son of Israeli diamond tycoon Lev Leviev.

“HOLY SHIT THEY FOUND IT”: Kathleen is amazed to read that dozens of decapitated corpses have been found in a Roman-era cemetery an hour outside of London, and an ancient chalk drum was found in a child’s grave in England, which is being billed as the “most important” piece of prehistoric art in 100 years.

ALABAMA ATTACK SQUIRREL: Kathleen reads at the absurdity of a story from Alabama where a drug bust in Athens turned up meth, ammunition, body armor, and a crazy meth-addicted caged squirrel. The homeowner fed meth to the animal to keep it aggressive to train it to enact “protective” actions.

ICE FISHING WHORES: Kathleen laughs out loud reading an article out of Hudson, OH where Mayor Craig Shubert has resigned after making international headlines when he voiced concerns that allowing ice fishing at a local park would bring prostitution to the city.

A FOUR-STORY ROGUE WAVE: Kathleen loves any weather-related news and is excited to read a report about a giant four-story rogue wave that has broken records off the coast of Vancouver Island. No rogue waves have been observed directly in high sea states, and the probability of such an event occurring is one in 1,300 years.

BORED SECURITY GUARD DESTROYS FAMOUS PAINTING: Kathleen laughs out loud reading an article describing the activities of a bored Russian museum guard who damaged a famous painting by drawing cartoon eyes onto two faces of Anna Leporskaya’s 1934 “Three Figures.”

DISAPPEARING RESTAURANT CHAINS: Kathleen shares an article announcing 8 US-based restaurant chains that are still struggling after the pandemic, and are shedding hundreds of locations in an effort to survive.

THE GATES OF HELL ARE CLOSING FOREVER: Kathleen shares an advisory announcing that the Gates of Hell, which is a fiery crater that has been burning in the Karakum Desert since 1971, is closing as Turkmenistan’s President has ordered the government to begin researching how to extinguish the eternal flame.

KATHLEEN’S OFFICIAL FACEBOOK PAGE: Kathleen reminds all Termites who want to receive the latest news, tour info, and engage other Termites to follow her official Facebook page, Instagram page, Twitter account, and YouTube channel since she has absolutely NO relationship with any other social media page and doesn’t approve their activity.

WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen absolutely recommends watching “Inventing Anna” and “The Tinder Swindler” both on Netflix.
