Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone Ep 27: Putting Your Best Face Forward
Paula has an audition coming up, so it’s fitting that we’re looking into Looking Good and Feeling Good. First, plastic surgeon Dr. David Rosenberg explains what it takes to take away a tattoo - how do you get that anchor removed from your bulging forearm before you apply for that job at the spinach factory. Then, therapist Marc Weiss explains how to cope with anxiety, and how Paula can conquer it before her audition. Also - hot sauce! Is “El Diablo” actually the work of the Devil?

Maybe a certain podcast making its debut...? We ring in the New Year by sampling some of our listeners’ lowest expectations for 2019. Also, with M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass” poised to hit theaters, we review the first of its two prequels, 2000’s “Unbreakable,” starring Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and the surprising hair stylings of Robert Louis Stevenson. House band Jorge Reyes , saxophone FB:
