Hilarious! Paula and Adam (who is on every show) are great! Their use of the F word should be praised.

Love this podcast. Paula and Adam are great together. I'm always laughing throughout the show

The rapport in that tiny studio is a thing of beauty. It makes me cackle in public. Paula P. is a national goddamn treasure and Adam is her perfect foil. It's always loony and occasionally incandescent.

Description

Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone is a comedy field guide to life, or at least a set of IKEA assembly instructions. Where else can you find advice on topics from "How To Keep a Friend" to "How To Translate Your Verizon Bill?" Or even "What do I do if I encounter a Bear" and "Should I Get a Penis Piercing?" Paula and her co-host Adam Felber bring on leading expert guests and use their unique comedic sensibility to help us navigate life in the 21st century. Along the way, Paula attempts to explains existence through her kaleidoscopic perspective, and Adam tries to interject some rationality. Paula Poundstone is a nationally known comedian, legendary for her smart spontaneous humor. She and Adam are regular panelists on NPR's #1 show, Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!

Episode Date
Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone Ep 32 - Ol’ Whatsername Has Never Looked Better!
01:09:26

Is Paula’s trainer really doing what’s best for her, or does he just get better cell reception on the gym floor? Kelly Dormandy, head strength and conditioning coach for the LA Sparks, explains peak fitness without breaking a sweat. Then - why can’t Paula and Adam recognize each other? USC’s Dr. Irving Biederman walks us through the science of facial recognition, and why some of us suck at it. Also, Paula and Adam discuss which was less pleasant - the Polar Vortex in the Midwest or the possum in our faces on Miranda Street.

Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone Ep 31 - Love for Sale. And for Rent.
01:14:51

It’s Valentine’s Day, and we talk to a bonafide matchmaker to find out why what she offers is better than Swiping Right. Then, in anticipation of this year’s rom-com “Isn’t it Romantic,” Paula and Adam revisit the most successful rom-com of all time, “Pretty Woman.” Does it hold up? And what, exactly, is being held up? Plus, was Paula hasty in rebranding the “tramp stamp?” Our Dutch friends tell us why we should’ve gone for “ass antlers.”

01:17:15

Remember when we had that anxiety expert talk Paula through her audition nerves? How’d that work out? Well, this week we have casting director Jeanie Bacharach on hand to fine tune Paula’s technique. And teacher Jason Shine comes by to talk about homework. We originally had some great questions, but the dog ate ‘em. Also - online kerfuffles! Paula and Adam have had a couple, and they do their level best to either find common ground or make things worse.

01:06:45

How do you manage wealth when you don’t have any? Stephen “Smart Money Steve” Rischall instructs Paula how to avoid going back to the days when she ate salt for dinner and sugar for dessert. Then LA Opera Chorus Master Jeremy Frank coaches Paula on how to sing our national anthem and thus rake in those sweet pre-game gigs. Also, Adam tries to help Paula improve her party chat skills, and we revisit our worst sponsor ever: Ed’s Dehydration Pills.

Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone Ep 27: Putting Your Best Face Forward
01:10:46

Paula has an audition coming up, so it’s fitting that we’re looking into Looking Good and Feeling Good. First, plastic surgeon Dr. David Rosenberg explains what it takes to take away a tattoo - how do you get that anchor removed from your bulging forearm before you apply for that job at the spinach factory. Then, therapist Marc Weiss explains how to cope with anxiety, and how Paula can conquer it before her audition. Also - hot sauce! Is “El Diablo” actually the work of the Devil?

01:09:35

What’s hot in Real Estate? Well, New York Avenue, St. James Place, and... molten lava! First we talk to volcanologist and founder of Blueprint Earth Jess Phoenix about planetary threats like climate change and volcanic eruptions. And then Paula gets concrete advice about where to build her hotels from America’s #3 Monopoly player, Ken Koury.

Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone Ep 25: Escape From 2018!
01:07:09

As we wait for the ball to drop from high above Miranda Street, Paula and Adam review 2018... and how much it sucked! Still, there were some high points - weren’t there? Maybe a certain podcast making its debut...? We ring in the New Year by sampling some of our listeners’ lowest expectations for 2019. Also, with M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass” poised to hit theaters, we review the first of its two prequels, 2000’s “Unbreakable,” starring Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and the surprising hair stylings of Robert Louis Stevenson.

01:06:29

It’s Christmas Eve, and Paula and Adam conjure up visions of sugarplums as a soft, fluffy snow begins to blanket Miranda Street. At least, we hope that’s snow. We play some of the latest festive entries to our Theme Song Contest, share our listeners’ stories about their most wished-for Christmas gifts, and we review the 2007 cinematic classic “Transformers” to help you decide whether the new film “Bumblebee” is the right holiday movie for YOUR whole family.

Professional light-stringer, Cristian Jimenez, owner of The Christmas Dudes, enlightens us on decorative technique.

01:11:57

On a surprisingly cultured episode, Paula and Adam explore high art and haute cuisine. Luke McKinley, Maitre d’ at the amazing Providence restaurant reveals the secrets of getting the right table and figuring out the menu. And if he were a wine, we don’t mind saying that we paired Mr. McKinley perfectly with Dr. Jennifer Greenhill, Art History Professor from USC, who helped us explore the very nature of art, from Jackson Pollock to Norman Rockwell to a toasted bagel left on a gallery floor. Plus - we debut our Department of Corrections, wherein we correct a few slight, teensy-weensy inaccuracies that may have made it onto our show.

Ep 3 Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone
45:06

On this week’s show, Paula and Adam get you acquainted with our beautiful North Hollywood studio locale. We talk to audiologist Dr. Michele Sherman about vital issues like whether earbuds are safe and why wax belongs in our ears and Q-tips don’t - and if they don’t, what the hell are Q-tips for, anyway? And cat rescuer and expert Leslie Ann Weiss explains how Paula should deal with her feral cat, Wednesday, and why she probably isn’t, in fact, feral.
