Kelly Anneken (@thefatling on twitter) is a San Francisco stand up comic, the comedy curator over at Pandora Radio and enjoys a nice biography. A lot. She picked her current three favorite biographies (Hallie Flanagan, Madame de Stael and Cleopatra) and we go THROUGH them. In the midst we weed off talking about The Babysitter Club books and American Girl Doll books. It’s great. Disclaimer: This episode was recorded LIVE at Lost Weekend Video in San Francisco http://www.lostweekendvideo.com/Lost_Weekend_Video/The_Cinecave!.html, and there wasn’t an audio guy. So you got ME. And Patrick did his best to mitigate how hot the recording was … but it’s a little buzzy. It’s a little Ruth Buzzi. Get it? And… sorry. It was too great to bail on… so consider it in “podcast glory.”

“Someone accused me of being a serial dater. Which is true, because I’ve dated all the flakes, all the fruit loops, and contrary to popular belief, if you eat cocoa puffs, you can go back.”—Cheryl White @ Dorsey’s Locker/Blue Candle Open Mic [Paraphrase]
