Here it is, for your enjoyment – a clip show! Featuring much of the cast of The Worst Little Podcast, past and present, in the last 200  episodes and some repeat offenders drinking copious amounts of beer and whiskey! In studio we have, your hosts, Thee Reverend Rory Dowd, Mr. Nick Ramirez, Dogwater Dick and Josh Martin, along with our small horde of guests that include Reno musicians and friends of the show: Spencer Kilpatrick, Mikie Haley, Felix Danger,  Myke Read, Rashidul Kader, Zac Curtis, Evan Humphries and a Mystery Guest!

The Bridal Photo – Episode 200

There’s clips from shows going back to the first season and as recently as this 5th one. There are … a lot. We made Rick play jukebox. He’s the only one who wasn’t inebriated and could take notes. There’s a lot of talking and conversation stepping, some rudeness, some love, you take the good, you take the bad, and there you have – AH! Who’s kidding, there’s nothing good about this show. Except the music. Always the Reno music.

The Wedding Party – Episode 200

We’d like to thank all of our friends, guests and sponsors over the years – You guys are great and we would not be doing this without you.

Thanks for listening!

John and John – It’s Like Coffee

It’s an acquired taste!

The Worst Little Podcast – S5 E25 – Season 5 Episode 25

As the 199th episode of The Worst Little Podcast in the World, this show marks the end of a chapter, and so! we return to the beginning. New half-assed and not very well planned ideas are the name of the game! Listen in for Nick’s explanation partway through the show. See if you can spot it! Our guests this week are John and John, a They Might Be Giants cover band from Reno NV that has played exactly one show prior to this recording.

John and John - a thin man and a portly man standing together

John and John

John and John is a labor of love (mostly your ears’ labor and their love of torture) brought to you by John Pat (Pat Rhea) and John Rory (Thee Reverend Rory Dowd). As a duo they have delighted at least a dozen people this year, not including the cast of this show. It’s a side project they haven’t been actually working on for very long at all, but what they lack in experience they make up for in sheer A-for-effort…ness.

You can catch John and John next at the Great Basin Geeks Con (GBGCon) at Reno Town Mall this October! It will be very exciting and far more practiced. And you should really listen to the whole show this time, especially the very very end card. Chekkit out. Rory’s performance on bass is uh-mazing.

Please join us next week for our 200th episode. Yes, seriously – don’t read me with that look on your face. We will be having a long overdue true shit-show – lots of guests and no scheduled music. We gonna have a (clip show) partay! Along with playing some of our favorite songs from over the last 5 seasons, we will also be joined by current and past cast members and Reno low-lifes luminaries, including Felix Polanski, Spencer Kilpatrick, Jeff Done, Nate Sanders, Jenny PezDeSpencer, Andy86 and more! Who knows what fun will be had? Who knows how many shots there will be? Who knows if it will even be listenable?

John and John - Rory is about to lick the face of Pat who looks perplexed and a little nervous.

They have a relationship based on trust.

Thanks for listening! (Like forreals this time.)

Tooth of Crime: New Digs, Booga

Choogin, baybay, choogin!

The Worst Little Podcast – 2015 03 02

I am so conflicted about this episode!!!! First, we have the cast from “Tooth of Crime” on, which is so awesome; second, Jamie hosted the show in its entirety, which is good and bad (good that she can handle it, bat that my job is at stake now); and finally – it’s the last episode ever from beautiful suburban Sparks! What is this world coming to?!?!

Dave Richards

Dave has found something!

Lew Zaumeyer


“Tooth of Crime” is a play written, and then later re-written, by Sam Sheppard. It involves live music, cars and fire. It is dangerous theater. It is a play that has not always been well received. It is a play that may have never been done correctly, even when directed by the author. A small group of actors from Reno believe that they can pull it off like no one has.

Scott Dundas and Jill Marlene

Scott/Chaser and Jill/Becky Lou

Nick Ramirez


Director Dave Richards brings most of his cast and the band to the studio with him to talk about the upcoming performances. He is joined by Lew Zaumeyer (Hoss), Jill Marlene (Becky Lou), Scott Dundas (Chaser), Andy Luna (Crow), Nick Ramirez (Meera), Rory Dowd (Rudio Ran) from the cast and also Jeff Done, Pat Mayfield, Dave Masud and Chris Fox from the Reno “Tooth of Crime” band. For a last session, we crammed so many people in that the whole band AND Reverend Rory had to sit in the living room! That’s why Jamie got to host the show! (I knew you were wondering)

Chris didn’t get up all night.

For a final episode at the old house, we couldn’t have asked for a better set of guests – some old friends, some brand new to the show. ANd we had fun. We will be taking a one week hiatus so Dogwater Dick can move ye olde studios into Reno! Crazy things are afoot in the neighborhood. Chekkit what’s been happening down the block:

Love Like Wes – Generation Un-gap

Attention, standby passengers!

Johnny Rolling - Love Like Wes

Johnny Rolling

Greetings, fellow travelers!! I hope your seat belts are on, because we’re going on a field trip! Johnny Rolling, Erik Grubbs, Kieran Clark and  Henry Lindsay from Love Like Wes put in some time during this last summer of Dogwater. All Battle-Born and Reno raised, they come in with their unique charm and songs about girls and make Reverend Rory feel old as dirt bring us up to speed on themselves. First of all, none of the members of Love Like Wes are actually named Wes, although he is a real person. While we typically avoid such trite questions, this one was begging to be asked. Find out the store during the second segment. Or is it the third?

Erik Grubbs - Love Like Wes

Erik Grubbs

Love Like Wes is fun, pop rock from Reno Nevada. They’ve been playing around for a few years now and are building a steadily growing following, especially know that they have ‘hair down there’ and can get into bars. All kidding aside, they are fantastic musicians and came to play on the show. And they help us bring to you another WLP exclusive! Starring inour first ever Father/Son connection, bass player Henry Lindsey is the son of none other than Bruce “The Bruce” Lindsey, friend and former gust of the show.

We would also like to take a second to congratulate the cast and crew of Nowhere Nevada for being awarded the title of “Best Feature” at the SF Global Film Festival in San Jose last weekend. That’s right, they got the ‘Best in Show’ award at the event they’ve been working so hard for!! We’ve been supporting them and invested in the project for about two years now, so it’s fantastic for Nick Ramirez, Brian Sutherland, Juli Green, Dave Richards, Jef Derderian, Liz Cole, Felix Danger, Max Volume, Andy Luna, Cori Lynne, Tom Plunkett, Xtevion, Rick Spagnola, Tom Gordon and all the rest of the crew get their deserved accolades. Keep checking in because this is not over; the next step is distribution and we will ube sure to let you know when you can finally see this movie or get a copy of your very own. Check out the Nowhere Nevada IMDB page while you wait! Congrats again, everyone!

Kieran Clark - Love Like Wes

We also discuss the future fate of JB the Intern, who pulls his second no -call no-show in as many weeks. Boy is gonna pay.
Enjoy the end of summer!
Thanks for Listening!
