This week's amazing guest is Tipper Newton (The Mindy Project, Color TV (that's her band. She's SO COOL).

She was obsessed with movies and worked on the school news program. Oh btw, Tipper had an OLDER boyfriend. Devastatingly cool.

This episode's superlative may very well be "Most Dramatic"

Chris attended Winchester High School where he successfully brought back school dances (they were BANNED!), found out creative ways to "buy time" on papers, and participated in a billion school clubs.

Chris' competitive ice skating training and high levels of school participation left him with little to no down time, which, spoiler alert - "kids shouldn't have anyway."

P.S. Chris is a long time listener! Tweet us and let us know how many episodes you've listened to!

This week's amazing episode is with the lovely Xosha Roquemore (The Mindy Project, Precious). She went to Oakwood School before starting at the catholic private school, St. Bernard. Xosha's penchant for the "thug life" and good student sensibilities resulted in a "I can't get in trouble" loop hole that she definitely took advantage of. 


This episode is so fun. Take notes.


Sep 28, 2015

Today's episode we have our first boarding school attendee AND prom queen, Lang Fisher (30 Rock, The Onion, The Mindy Project). Lang attended boarding school in Colorado Springs where she almost got kicked out, lied about a drug deal, and was a part of The Hive.

Lang was also very studious and probably had a little too much on her plate at once; her living on campus provided us a different take on the high school experience.
