Editor’s Note: Welcome to Quarantainment, Vanyaland’s new series on what to watch, what to hear, and how to deal as the world engages in social distancing to combat the spread of coronavirus, or COVID-19. We’re all at home, we’re all online, and we’re all in this together. #StayTheFHome
There may be such a thing as too much tuna, but we’d be hard-pressed to find a significant amount of people who think there’s such a thing as too much Nick Kroll and John Mulaney — err, we mean Gil Faizon (charmed, I’m sure) and George St. Geegland.
With the first of eight episodes of their brand new podcast, Oh, Hello: the P’dcast, dropping today (April 3), the stars of the hit Broadway show bring their willfully blunt and brash characters into the studio to embark on a journey, with what they’re hoping will be the help of This American Life host Ira Glass and Serial host Sarah Koenig. The bumbling New Yorkers focus on the death of Princess Diana, all the while telling stories of their fondest memories in the city, and trying to get some love for Subway sandwiches.
Determined to “win the quarantine” with their new show, Faizon (charmed, I’m sure) and St. Geegland aren’t taking “no” for an answer as they look to tell Princess Diana’s story in a whole new way (ya know, like in a p’dcast), and we’re looking forward to seeing where the journey goes.
