This was on the TYF! podcast, a somewhat more contentious episode of our recurring Top 3 - with Liam and Kevin stretching the definition of "holiday special," and the "Top 3 Steven Spielberg" category proving surprisingly contentious and controversial. 

The panel includes:

FRANK CONNIFF, who is best-loved as "TV's Frank," the mad scientist from the cult TV show 'Mystery Science Theater 3000." He also has a podcast, Podhouse 90, which just released a new episode titled "The Agoraphobic Action League."

Originally slated to be a 15-minute bonus episode, this taping was so much fun that Frank, Kevin, and Liam ended up recording another hour of show. This continues our Top 3 episode, with the guys debating everything from the three best Clint Eastwood movies to the three best comedy writers of all time.

Top 3 was so much fun it's going to be a regular TYF! feature, with a reappearance in November.

TYF! #6.10

This week on the TYF! podcast, our host Liam McEneaney talks to Chemda Hennessy, her husband Lauren Hennessy, and returning TYF! favorite Lux Alptraum.

Chemda is the co-host of the landmark Keith and the Girl podcast, which will start a live show tour down the West Coast through the midwest into Denver in the month of October to celebrate their 10th anniversary. She talks about what goes into planning a tour, and about her strict rules for touring (no pooping or phones on the bus).

Her husband, Hennessy, is the cohost of Judy Gold's "Kill Me Now" podcast. He also talks about life as a transgender male, and he talks about growing up knowing that he was born into the wrong gender, and about having "phantom limb" sensations in where his penis and testicles would be.

Lux Alptraum is the former editor-in-chief of Fleshbot, and a sex educator, the founder of the BinderCon women's conference, and has toured with her "Wonderful World of Boning" sex-ed comedy show. She is currently running a Kickstarter to fund a comedy video for trans people called "Second Puberty," which you should support.

There's more fun in the TYF! Premium Bonus episode, talking about drugs and the benefits of hallucinogens. You can access it by supporting our Patreon campaign.
