Helloooooo, Reno, and welcome to the Worst Little Podcast! We are joined by a full cast and crew tonight and we’re hella excited to share some time with roaming singer-songwriter Liam Kyle Cahill! We’re catching up on the last week of Reno shenanigans with all our hosts, including our review of Generation We: a HipHOpera. Spoilers: we loved it. We’re also recapping Offbeat Fest, and, oh yeah, we have a musician here! We’re welcoming Liam Kyle Cahill back to the podcast for the first time in a couple of years! He’s got some stuff to say and some exclusive songs to preview here for you! So let’s get into it.
Liam’s sound has been described as Mumford & Sons in a bar room brawl with Bob Dylan at a punk rock concert. Liam hails from Reno and has spent most of the last couple of years touring full time. World traveler and touring musician, Liam has earned the label Nomad By Fate.
Liam’s recent shows have been in Tahoe and Truckee just this past weekend. Stay tuned here for updated show dates!

MAKE SURE you go to Jub Jub’s Friday night to see Qarin’s first show since some major shit went down with the band. Celebrate, wear a costume, and save a few bucks for a beer! I’ll leave you with an eloquent toast from the band, “we’ll fuck ’em standing, we’ll fuck ’em lying, if they had wings we’d fuck ’em flying, and when she’s dead and long forgotten, we’ll dig her up and fuck her rotten. Sorry, not sorry.

Welcome to this week’s Worst Little Podcast!
Kim, Rory, and Rick are sitting down with part of the cast of the musical Get Bent: A Gender Bent Musical Review. In the studio we have Michelle, Stephanie, and the lovely Xelena – Empress of the Impossible – here to fill us in on their latest gender bending production. They answer the hard questions and share a few songs from the show. So listen up and play along at home.
For Sisters Three Productions co-creators/producers Michelle Calhoun and Stephanie McMullen, it was important to show that a part can be just as impactful when done by the opposite gender for which it was written, and at times even more powerful. “Get Bent” is an original production that will feature famous musical numbers but with a twist: everything is gender bent. Proceeds of this production will benefit Our Center, a local shelter for programs, services, and resources for the LBGTQ community in Reno.
See Get Bent starting November 10th at The Potentialist Workshop. Show dates and tickets can be found here.This production is suitable for ages 13+, and the after dark show (Saturday at 10 pm) is suitable for ages 18+. Thanks to the cast of Get Bent for being on the show!

Friday – Generation WE: A Hip HOpera opens this Friday at the Potentialist Workshop. This will be a once in a lifetime experience with music from Weapons of Mass Creation.
