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 Mayonnaise Murder, Lake Mead’s Ghost Town, & A Night On Dolly’s Tour Bus

Kathleen opens the show drinking an Old Bay bloody Mary with a Success For Breakfast IPA from Broadway Brewery and reviews her 4th of July weekend activities in Nashville.

“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 Tabasco Jalapeno Mesquite BBQ Sauce, which she thinks is waaaay too sweet. She moves on to taste Kettle Brand Farmstand Ranch potato chips, which she finds not very “Ranch-like” but probably fantastic dipped in Ranch dip. She finishes her tasting with Gus’s Pretzels Monterey Jack Con Queso Dip from STL, which she absolutely loves and recommends pouring on anything.

A NIGHT ON DOLLY’S TOUR BUS: Kathleen is delighted to read that Dolly Parton has donated her 1986 tour bus to Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and Spa, allowing fans to book a min 2 night stay as part of the “Suite 1986 Tour Bus Experience.” The price is approx.$10K, and all proceeds have been directed to Dolly’s Imagination Library foundation.

UPDATES: Kathleen gives updates on the dismantling of the Rotterdam bridge to release Jeff Bezos’ new superyacht, the “Fake Hitler” capitol rioter is convicted, another Bison incident in Yellowstone, and Elon begins cracking down on Tesla’s return-to-work procrastinators.

“HOLY SHIT THEY FOUND IT”: Kathleen is amazed to read about the Mormon ghost town that has appeared in Lake Mead after a significant drop in the lake’s water level, and divers pulled a marble head of Hercules from a 2,000-Year-Old Shipwreck in Greece.

SUBWAY MAYONNAISE MURDER: Kathleen can’t believe the actions leading to a Subway restaurant employee in Atlanta getting shot and killed recently after a customer got upset after too much mayo was added to his sandwich.

TACO BELL’S LATEST MASH-UP: Kathleen laughs reading an announcement from Taco Bell about their latest partnership; this time with Cheez-It. The chain is releasing tostadas and Crunchwraps made with gigantic Cheez-Its in a few locations across the US for a limited time.

Kathleen maintains that Cheez-Its and Goldfish crackers should be left alone, and tells all Termites to “protect the Cheez-Its.”

US GOV’T REQUESTS REMOVAL OF TIKTOK: Kathleen laughs out loud reading an article advising that the Federal Communications Commission has asked Apple and Google to remove TikTok from their app stores over China-related data security concerns. She laughs musing about the revolution that “the children” would start if this action was taken.

RICHEST MAN WHO EVER LIVED: Kathleen introduces us to Mansa Musa, the fourteenth-century leader of the Mali Empire and the richest person who has ever lived.

WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends watching “Candy” on Hulu.
