Kathleen is best known for her work producing great comedy videos as part of Loading Ready Run. We’re here to say that, going forward, she should be equally famous as a well-learned authority on all things music. This podcast (which Kathleen deserves 100% credit for, as she pitched it to us) let us all unleash our inner music nerds, and it was an amazingly fun time. This is as close as we’ll ever get to an All Songs Considered episode. Check out the full song list below.

For more Kathleen goodness, follow her on twitter and visit Loading Ready Run.  Loading Ready Run’s content is also syndicated through Penny Arcade TV and the Escapist, and they were the production team behind a little show called Strip Search. Is that supposed to be good? Someone should podcast about it.

TTYL Podcast #10 – Strip Search Day 8

Abby Howard, Tavis Maiden - Strip Search Day 8 podcast

Strip Search continues to get the deluxe podcast treatment on That Thing You Like. Day 8 delivered a nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat elimination matchup: The talented, hat-and-beard wearing Tavis Maiden versus the dinosaur enthusiast / young gun Abby Howard. It was a battle of two talents, as each artist aimed to prove their dominance by showing off their D*.

(*delightful comics.)

Day 8 was a day of foot racing. A day of Presidential signature forging. And ultimately, a day of laughing. Pee-your-pants, bust yo’ gut, cat-fuelled laughter. One of the elimcomics is the talk of the interwebs, and we go next level on what it means for the competition.

Sadly, because of the nature of the show, it was also a day where somebody bade their Strip Search compatriots a sincere goodbye. With this week’s elimination, we’re down to the FINAL FOUR. IN ALL CAPS. BECAUSE SERIOUS BUSINESS. Listen as we break down all of the moments and challenges of day 8, including our love of Loading Ready Run’s newly-pointed interview questions.

Plus, as That Thing You Like is wont to do, we predict the future of each artist in our official Strip Search POWER RANKINGS. We rank, and we do it with power.
