Episode 16: WBEZ, Holly Hughes and ‘That’s All She Wrote’


Don and Tyler return to the fold as a WBEZ Podcast (!) with HEADLINES, where they discuss CNN’s docu-series Chicagoland and Disney’s Frozen. Then, they talk with Holly Hughes, a performance artist and teacher. She talks about her decade long fight with the government over her performance art. She also talks about what makes something performance art and the difficulty of moving from the Midwest to New York. Then, it’s time for another DATE NIGHT! Don and Tyler check out That’s All She Wrote, a night of live lit.

Finally, we wrap up with BEYOND THE MIC, featuring Kristen Kaza, a local events producer. She shares two of her favorite movies representing same-sex couples: Blue is the Warmest Color and Pariah.

ARCHIVES: “Date Night” @ Lyric Opera


New to General Admission? Need something to get you hyped up for Season 3? Never fear – we’re revisiting some of the best of General Admission with the ARCHIVES.

This mini-episode gives you a taste of Date Night, a segment in which Don and Tyler go see a show and discuss it over dinner. But this one – in which the two go see Madame Butterfly at the Lyric Opera – shakes up the usual Date Night routine. For one thing, Don dumps Tyler for dinner to go to an arm-wrestling competition. Then there’s Tyler’s check-in about past experiences with opera…from his bathtub. And last but not least, Don opens up and reveals the part of Madame Butterfly that made him cry.
