Please put your seats in the upright position!
Getting away from the metal this week with some pretty little ditties from the delightful and
hot as balls gorgeous Brittany Straw. Britt is a powerful singer and a fun person. She and her ukulele filled the rooms of Dogwater Studios with some pretty music for a change. Only playing the uke for the last 10 months or so, Britt is a pretty accomplished songwriter with no need for covers – but she’s got some fun arrangements of those too! You can check them out throughout the show!
Don’t let her adorability fool you – this lovely lady put up some big scores on the Worst Little Quiz (and, yeah, she answered ALL the questions).
We also had a lot of plugs this week! We got a chance to talk to Dan Kimm, local hypnotist and therapist. A long-time Reno entertainer, Dan was a lot of fun to talk to and we may even get him in the studio sometime. Dan’s act is going to go up shortly after his good friend and funnyman Sean Peabody rocks the stage, makin’ you laugh yo asses off. Their show, brought to you by the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club is at the Pioneer Underground this Friday night. Doors at 7.
Reverend Rory also wants to remind you of two other great events this weekend. First, there is The Creative Coalition of Midtown’s Sounds Music Walk on Friday evening, starting at 5 and going as late as midnight at eateries, bars, stores and parking lots all over Midtown Reno. Get VIP tickets at the Melting Pot. Second is DRAG QUEEN BOXING at the Alley in Sparks, brought to you by PhillipBrownTV. Doors at 8:30. Need I say any fucking more?
We also do a little PSA for the 2013 Night of Fetish and Fantasy – good kinky fun – but more on that next week when we have a guest from the event, Murdoc Brickel, come in to talk about it.
That’s about all I know, folks! Sorry I get a little “ding” happy in the first part of the show.
Thanks for listening.
Hey Everybody! Your old pal, Super Grover here! Just kidding it’s only me.
New Reno garage band, The Tides, take a visit with us today. Featuring Kevin Kentera on drums, Brian Healy on bass and Oliver Hull on lead guitar and vocals, The Tides ripped through the studio like a howling wolf. Primal screams and solid rock melodies will get you out of your seat and have you howling along with them. I really like these new guys on the scene.
We also have a fun phone call from Bobby Slayton again. The Pitbull of Comedy bites into Reverend Rory and just destroys him in front of a live studio audience! Fun times… Anyway, Bobby is also appearing at The Pioneer Underground this Friday and Saturday, June 21 & 22.
Nick is out this week with a bad back (get better soon buddy) so none other than the MIGHTY Kodiak, Dakota Joe steps in to take his place. This is a new Kodiak, subdued, in shape and sober. Kinda weird, but a change for the better…. we think…
Reverend Rory’s Picks for the Week:
Thursday, 6/20 – Mr Nick Ramirez at Adopt a Singer Songwriter (ASS!) at the Studio on 4th, 8pm

Fuckin’ FINALLY! – sorry for the late show this week – super busy aftermath of the (Un)Discovered show….
We got the SHA-ames! We got the SHA-ames! We got The Shames! We’ve teased you with it for over two years and it’s finally happened! We were finally able to pin down Penny Cillin and Mikie Shame, and they did not disappoint. It is as awesome – awesomer! – as you think it should be. Unfortunately, Shames drummer Cyril was unavailable for the show. The girls came in with a great musical selection – six or seven songs, including a Worst Little Podcast Exclusive first listen to a new Shames song!
At the top of the show we have a chance to talk with Reno native and LA-based comedian David Huntsberger. David is a really funny guy, appearing in comedy clubs nationally and on the podcast “Professor Blastoff“. His latest CD, Explosion Land is available on his website and iTunes. David will be appearing at the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club in the Pioneer Underground June 7 & 8. Go out this weekend and have a laugh with someone from this town who got out and made good!
Don’t forget to check out Big Remote‘s newest CD, Jenkins, currently available online and at Recycled Records!
And – RENO COMPUTER FIX RENO COMPUTER FIX RENO COMPUTER FIX AAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!
Write in for some stickers!!!!
That’s all I know.
Thanks for listening!
You know what heaven is like? A room full of beautiful women smiling at you, without a murderous glint in their eyes. This week we had three lovely local ladies in the studio – Lacey Mattison, Shelly Jackson and Dena Sweigart. Lacey is a local singer songwriter and long-time friend of the show; Shelly is a local crafter, gallery curator and event organizer with Indie Reno and Wildflower Gallery; and Dena was Lacey’s moral support (and ride) that somehow got roped into being on mic. (I wonder how that happened)
This weeks episode is totally 50 shades of GHEY! Even Reverend Rory was blushing by the end of the show! He entirely blames Nick for the gaeity. We also have a phone call with LA area comedian, Ed Galvez, who will be appearing at the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club in the Pioneer Underground this Friday and Saturday!
Speaking of Comedians – on Thursday May 9th, Shea’s Tavern will be hosting the Weediculous Comedy Tour! We will have headliner Dustin Kaufman on next week ta talk about what they’re up to. I wanted to let y’all know about it now though, since we’ll have limited lead time before the show next week. I’m planning on being there!
Other than that – it was a giant shitshow. Lots of fun, I think? Only mildly awkward, really

Holy audio overload, Batman!
Greetings, Worsters! Lovely to see you today. Are you having a good day? Does this seem a little weird? It should, because I’m buttering you up before you get into the hot ear mess that is this week’s episode. We have Merkin in the studio and the boys do not disappoint. They record a couple songs for the first time EVAR here on the podcast.
Other Highlights include:
- Dane drinking Reverend Rory’s Coffee
- Dane and Alán arguing
- Dane talking too loud
- Dane tuning his guitar
- And so on…
It’s a good thing these boys are talented, because this show is just a trainwreck!
It’s not actually as bad as all that – Merkin is a fun bunch of guys that we love and it was great to have them back on the show (mostly). We also spend a few minutes with new friend of the show, Will C! Will is a good ol’ boy from MissouRAH, like The Rev. He took a few to warm up and then dove right into the show with a couple zingers. Will C will be appearing at the Pioneer Underground this Friday and Saturday for three shows. A veteran as well as funnyman, Will C informs us that the shows will be a fundraiser to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project, so get out there and support a great cause while you laugh and drink.
And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the other white elephant in the room – Another Return of Chewie!!!! It’s good to have our boy back!
The Reverend’s Show Picks of the Week:
Friday – Creative Coalition Midtown Block Party (Midtown)
Saturday – The Kanes Black Magic CD release party (The Knit)
Anyway, Thanks For Listening!!!
Pussy. That’s right. Pussy.
Arguably, the secret to our success
(and quasi-failures) rests in the concept of locking musicians entertainers in a small sweaty room and feeding them beer and or coffee for 90 minutes. It’s always a helluva good time – but there are weeks when it really gets… weird… or funny – like clownmeat. Elgin Alway and Bishop getting crazy in the studio! Bishop is the lead singer and guitarist for Formerly Known As, A Tribute to Prince, and Elgin is one of the top rated comedians in Reno (according to him, anyway). They are a volatile mixture behind the mics. Seriously, there was even a total Freaky Friday moment when Elgin’s playing guitar and Bishop’s doing the joke-thing. Bishop and Elgin may have been channeling each other at that point – not sure.
Sponsor Time! Reno Computer Fix is offering $25 off any purchase or service over $100 IF you mention the Worst Little Podcast when you go in. These guys repair and sell refurbished computers of all kinds – it’s a sweet deal. They’ve been totally hooking us up here, so get in on the action!
Nick’s Journal Time (An Unexpected Tale) didn’t go exactly as planned – no one let the guests know that they were supposed to shut the hell up. Rory didn’t quite get to go into his review of Doubt, the current production at Bruka Theater – again, lots of interruptions. And by that point we didn’t even ask Rick what his week was like, not because we don’t really care, no! but because we were distracted by Bishop’s ethereal signifyin’ tirades or Elgin’s attempts to get a good Billy Dee Williams groove going on.
Bishop is keeping pretty tight lipped about his next performance with Formerly Known As, but Elgin will be appearing this weekend at the Reno Tahoe Comedy Club’s Roast of Pat Schillito, recent guest and friend of the show, this very weekend – so it should be a blast. Chekkit out!
Nick wanted me to remember to talk about something else…. but it was at the open mic at Jub Jub’s when he told me, so I forgot. This coming week though!!! Blazing Mics will be hosted by the awesome and ripping Michelle Coleman of Scarlet Presence!! $1 off for all performers and a $25 bar tab for the best performance of the night! Come on down!!!
And in a completely unrelated note – The Rocky Horror Pinky Show will be reprising their spectacular performance at this year’s Reno Artown!!! Cargo is bringing us back for two performances on July 27! Rocky Horror with a mostly full cast, a live band playing all the songs and lots of partici….. pation. More details about that in the next few months, but write that down!!! Put it on your phone calendar!!! It’s Rocky Horror like you’ve never seen it before.
Anyway…. thanks for listening. 🙂
NEW SEASON!! GAME ON!!!!
Welcome to Season Three of The Worst Little Podcast in the World! So, yeah, we have Max Volume of the Max Volume Band and on-air personality for KOZZ on the show. But first, just like in the episode – we have a phone call with Mr. Bobby Slayton! Thanks to our connections at The Reno Tahoe Comedy Club, we were able to spend a good 20 minutes talking to “The Pitbull of Comedy”. Well, talking to Bobby Slayton might be an exaggeration – listening to him bust Rev. Rory’s chops and
lie talk about how much he likes Reno is more like it. He’s a pro and really came to play. Great opening segment. Be sure to catch Bobby Slayton at The Pioneer Underground THIS Friday and Saturday night where he’ll be appearing with a bunch of local comics including friends of the show Jenny PezDeSpencer, Pat Shillito and Matt Wiegand!
We had a lot of fun with Max on the show. A great talent and a staple of Reno radio for years, he’s a blast to sit and talk to – hearing him namedrop all the famous people you and I will never meet – mostly because he’s old as dirt and they’re all dead!! Man, good times! Or those times when he played one of FOUR BRAND NEW SONGS!!! That’s right – Worst Little Podcast exclusive recordings of Max Volume. And you thought we’d forgotten our promises! Here we are two years later, still delivering the goods!
We’d also like to welcome on board our brand new sponsors, Reno Computer Fix. Justin and Ian over there are pretty awesome guys, supporting the arts in Reno with gallery space in a techie repair shop and keeping our computers running. Part of the Wells Avenue crew, they’re near everybody, so please check them out and mention that you heard about them from us! And while I’m on the subject of sponsors – check out Waking Girl Web Design if you need design, content or social media coordination or consultation. OK – between Bobby Slayton, Max Volume, Reno Computer Fix and Waking Girl, I think that’s enough shameless plugs for one post. Oh, and Jub Jub sez – “Fuck your podcast!”
Thanks for listening!
