Ep 55: The “Goodbye WBEZ” / “Free Agent” Special!

September 16, 2015 | By | No Comments">No Comments


As you may have heard, General Admission is parting ways with WBEZ. The guys will continue the show in some form with a different network in March, but before that time, they wanted to celebrate their time with WBEZ: it’s been real, as the kids say.

On this episode, you’ll be treated to clips from Tyler & Don’s favorite interviews, on-locations adventures & a highlight reel of moments where they completely lost their minds.

This is an episode for super-fans & people interested in finding out more about the show (READ: “other network” mentioned above!).

And for those that are curious why the two are parting ways, Ben Calhoun, WBEZ’s Director of Programming, had this to say about the split:

“I really appreciate the passion and energy that’s gone into General Admission, and the affection the show’s earned from its audience. But we’ve had to face the reality that the show isn’t sustainable for us. And so we had to make a difficult decision to bring the partnership to a close. That said, as much as ever, we appreciate Tyler and Don – for their charm, talent, and endless enthusiasm for creative communities. They’re terrific. As I always am – I am excited for where they turn their passions next.”

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.
