Season 2 Episode 12 – I Finally Went to the Doctor



Don’t worry, it’s not as bad as it sounds. This week I talk about how easy health insurance actually can be, the upcoming show “Holey Moley” on ABC that I will be on, and other exciting things coming up this summer.


Season 2 Episode 11 – How to Fix the NBA



This week is just one long tip. With Memorial Day Weekend behind us, and the NBA Finals in front, it’s time to address something that’s bothered me for years: how do you make the NBA entertaining?

Also, in show-related news, this show will now be released on a bi-weekly schedule. So expect to receive your regular doses of tips and tidbits now every two weeks instead of every week.


Season 2 Episode 10 – Graduation Advice



This week I am joined for the first time by my good friend Harold Kast. With graduation for other USC students having just passed this Friday, we take time to sit down and reflect on our own journeys through the university, how our paths have led us to our current moments, and where we plan to keep moving forward. Plus, we get a little bit of beard etiquette advice from Harold, so have a listen and enjoy!


Season 2 Episode 9 – Middle School Trauma



This week, I’m joined again by Danny and Keeley as we discuss traumatic PE exercises in middle school, how to apply them to real life today, and the joy of going to a Renaissance Faire. Also, we try to guess what measles are like and end up completely wrong, so do not quote us on anything medical.


Season 2 Episode 8 – Stand Up For No Audience



This week, Michael goes it alone to discuss his own process for when he’s feeling unproductive, how to analyze what the next step should be, and performs a stand-up routine he’s written, with no audience present to react. Enjoy the advice, enjoy the comedy, and enjoy the show.


Season 2 Episode 7 – This City is Infuriating



This week Bennett and I discussing other frustrating topics like the unwritten rules and games of dating apps and texting, the lack of professionalism in the entertainment industry, and how we make fun of social media. Get ready for a passionate tirade by the both of us this time.


Season 2 Episode 6 – Workshopping Things



After a week hiatus due to Michael leaving his laptop behind and going out of town (whoops!), we are back with another episode. This time, Michael and returning guest Bennett Saltzman play the newest game of the show Wine About It, and discuss topics like supporting your friends and student productions, who should pay on the first date, and how bad drivers are in Los Angeles.


Season 2 Episode 5 – Michael’s Oscars Conspiracy Theory



This week we jump right back into the conversation with Danny and Keeley. Talking about more Hollywood blunders, how the La La Land/Moonlight gaffe was actually intentionally done, and learning who Keeley would rather live with besides Danny.


Season 2 Episode 4 – Nothing is Original



This week, Danny and Keeley return to do what theater graduates do best: critique everything wrong with current film and media, yet acknowledge there’s nothing we can do about stopping it. Listen along as we discuss how Hollywood is obsessed with remakes and reboots, why the Kardashian/Jenner family will be a memorable chapter in fashion history, and Keeley’s fascination with John Cho especially after his performance in “Searching.”


Season 2 Episode 3 – Undeadly Tidbits



With Valentine’s Day this past week, we hope you all got to spend time with your loved one(s). Here at Tips and Tidbits, we decided to pair up with our good friends at Undeadly Serious for a conversation this week. Listen to our discussions on moving, starting your own projects, and the impact the Twilight series had on all of us. Also check out Undeadly Serious for some hilarious insights and analysis of Bram Stoker’s film “Dracula.”
