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 Canadian Crypto King, Stolen Cheese, & The Day the Dinosaurs Died

Kathleen opens the show drinking a DC Brau wheat beer from the DC Brewing Company. She shares the value of traveling with mini hot sauces since one of her favorite treats to collect on the road is hot sauce. Kathleen talks about the shows in DC at the Warner Theatre and New York City at Town Hall, and shares her excitement after attending DC’s African American Museum and then taking Amtrak to NYC.

“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 Pennsylvania’s Middleswarth potato chips, which she likes but prefers original Lay’s. She moves on to try Heinz Creamy Ranch Mayonnaise from Australia, which is a lot thicker than US Ranch dressing and she LOVES the tang.

QUEEN’S COURT: Kathleen is thrilled to report that she will be going to Red Rocks to see Queen Stevie Nicks, and she LOVED Queen Tanya Tucker’s concert at The Ryman in Nashville, which celebrated the 50th year of the release of “Delta Dawn.”

IMMERSIVE VAN GOGH: Termites know that Kathleen LOVES the world of fine art, and Van Gogh is one of her favorite artists. She shares details of her unbelievable experience at the Immersive Van Gogh exhibit in Nashville.

UPDATES: Kathleen gives updates on Britney Spears’s baby, the South Dakota attorney general’s impeachment, and Elon Musks’ attempt to take over Twitter.

“HOLY SHIT THEY FOUND IT”: Kathleen is amazed to read about the discovery of “the impossible fossil” at the Tanis dig site in North Dakota, which is a fossilized dinosaur leg from a creature killed on the day of the asteroid strike that wiped the dinosaurs from Earth.

NEW YORK’S WRAPPER’S LOST ART FOUND: Kathleen is thrilled to read about the discovery of dozens of abandoned art pieces from New York’s Wrapper, Francis Hines, in a barn in Connecticut.

MISSING CANADIAN CRYPTO KING: Kathleen is fascinated by the world of cryptocurrency, and reviews the mystery behind the disappearance/reported death of Gerald “Gerry” Cotten, the co-founder of cryptocurrency exchange, QuadrigaCX.

JOHN HINCKLEY JR PLANS CONCERT: Kathleen is amazed reading an article announcing that attempted assassin (and crazy person) John Hinckley Jr. is playing a sold-out concert in Brooklyn in June after his court-ordered restrictions end.

NYC GILDED AGE MANSION FOR SALE: Kathleen loves the HBO series “The Gilded Age,” and is excited to read that a mansion on the Upper East Side’s “Millionaire’s Row” is being prepped for sale for only the 3rd time since it was built in 1903. The 20K square foot home once belonged to baron Cornelius Vanderbilt’s family.

DUTCH CHEESE HEIST: Kathleen LOVES cheese, and is bewildered reading an article outlining the timeline of gang activities in the Netherlands last month that lead to the theft of over 3,500 pounds of cheese (worth approx. $23K USD).

AIRLINE DUMPSTER FIRE MERGER: Kathleen laughs reading an announcement that JetBlue is willing to spend $3.6B to acquire Spirit Airlines in an effort to compete against larger airlines. Spirit is currently trying to work out a merger with Frontier Airlines, and Kathleen offers her opinion on all 3 carriers and her synopsis of what any merger combo will result in.

BOMBSHELL PENTAGON UFO DOCS RELEASED: Kathleen is a massive believer in UFOs and is fascinated to read the details in a recent Pentagon report that discloses the health effects of paranormal experiences on humans. The report supports that UFO sightings can cause witnesses to be injured or suffer from radiation burns, brain problems, and nerve damage, and offers case studies on 5 reported sexual encounters between aliens and humans.

WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends watching “Trust No One: The Hunt For The Crypto King” on Netflix.
