The Duchess of Horror  

Are you afraid of the dark? Halloween is fast approaching, and to celebrate the creepiest time of the year we have storyteller and horror enthusiast Kathleen Auterio at the mic, sending shivers and chills down your spook-loving spine. Hear tales of growing up in a haunted house, dark figures, Ouji board, unexplained experiences, and that one particular night on Dudley Rd. If you need something to soothe your mind after, check out her band, The Beast of England. 


TRIPLE DIGITS, Y'ALL! Thank you to everyone who made this milestone possible. For our anniversary, TDW talks scary situations in movie theaters, art shows, street food, housing ghosts, the Blue Angels, Hurricane Matthew, and more. #befuckinbetter  

Wham, Bam, Thank You Sam.  

Beat it, Becky; somebody else got the good hair now. Comedian Sam DiSalvo joins us in the studio to talk heritage, cheating, waxing, dating, cleaning, and, of course, what it's like to be a woman in comedy. You're going to be hearing from this dame again. Check out Sam's extensive comedic resume at   

Cohabitate With Your Mate.  

Livin' it up in sweet, sweet sin. Jenn recently took the big step and moved in with her boyfriend, and now there's a LOT to talk about. TDW covers the five stages of grief when moving, individuality within a relationship, marriage, drinking, cuckholding, and to pee or not to pee in front of your partner. We would LOVE to know your thoughts. Hit us up on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram.  

Chrity Chrity Bang Bang  

Christy Osorio is back, y'all! On top of serving up those sweet, healthy juices at La Sombra, Christy is now the host of's "Conference Call with Chrity" where she takes calls and sets your Friday afternoon mood with some damn sexy tunes. TDW talks sex therapists, moving in the Bay Area, censoring yourself as a host, and the morality of deleting tweets once you reach fame. 

What's the Magic Word?  

Abracadabra, presto, voila! Bradmagic and Andrew Evans bring a little bit of magic to the studio, with stories of first performances and tricks goes wrong, as well the logic behind 'good' magic, and why you can't use it to meet girls. 

We Have the Technology.  

We live in a digital age. TDW talks credit card theft, the faces of 911 operators, and what3words, the new world addressing system that stretches all the way out to Mongolia. We also cover how to handle Amber Alerts and those pushy Greenpeace fundraisers on the street. 


Better late than never. TDW talks the effects of personal change, including weight loss, anxiety, cosmetic and life altering surgery, new ways of coping, and looking back on high school mistakes. 

Naughty Bawdy Language  

"I don't want to fuck the whole world." Sexual folklorist Dixie De La Tour is coming in hot with a mouthful of steamy, kinky stories. Hear about organizing sex clubs, the variety of furries, losing virginities, and cock-wielding clowns. Check out her storytelling show, Bawdy Storytelling, live in San Francisco and Seattle. 

Scoot 'em Up  

Hands in the air! TDW talks two-wheeled rides with our good friend Barry, the owner of Scooter Centre near our studio. This wise-cracking antiques collector has a host of stories about shotguns traded, bones broken, loves lost, and dogs adored. 


Shoot for the moon; even if you miss, you'll land among the stars. TDW talks space, aliens, and other theories with astronomy consultant Tim Debenedictus. Tim is the creator of the popular star-gazing app "Sky Safari."


There's a lot of lunacy in the world today. With all the chaos going on, people need a strong, genuine presence to guide them. Is anyone surprised to find it in the lovely Luna Malbroux? Comedienne, show host, and now journalist, Luna tells of her experience traveling to Atlanta to attend the funeral of Alton Sterling, a black man shot and killed by police. She met Sterling's family and even stood in as an usher when they needed extra hands. (And also experienced her first stalker situation.)

Baby Crusader  

Nobody puts Baby in an uncomfortable situation. Doula Sophi Scarnewman is standing up for newborns and the beautiful women who bring them into the world. On top of being pregnant, mothers have to worry about the rising number of C-sections, the shocking number of deaths in childbirth, bully doctors, complications- the list goes on and on. But luckily, there are doulas to help light the way.

Back in My Day  

Back in my day, we played Pokemon INSIDE! We sat around in our blow-up furniture drinking Tang, covering our notebooks with Lisa Frank stickers and showing off our Beanie Baby collections and hard-earned Tamagotchis. Our bleached tips were the shit! And don't even get us started on our our Walkmans, Polly Pockets, and Livestrong bracelets. We will live like this forever!   

Keeping Up With THE Kevin Allison

Sloppy Seconds  

Would you, could you eat a stranger's food? Would you, could you hook up with a random dude? Dom, Jenn, and Aya get passionate with opinions about cursing in front of new friends, how guests should act in your home, eating in naked restaurants, eating food you didn't order, and the realities of one-night stands. 

Break A Leg.  

The show WILL go on. Since the early age of 15, Sam Verbeck has confidently led the charge through the complex pathways of theatre production design. She's built more, wired more, moved more, and drunk more than any of us, and probably all of you combined. Find out what it truly takes to break a leg, only on TDW.  

Show Some Pride  

Say it loud, say it proud! TDW sends words of support to those impacted by Brexit and the Pulse shooting in Orlando. We talk how Pride is awesome as a celebration, but like a bad night out for the city of San Francisco. Jenn gets her identity stolen at a pizza parlor and Dom's dog isn't horny- she's just a rapey bitch.   

Read Me My Rights.  

A little bit less, a little bit late. TDW talks with Kaly and Aiasha of Root & Rebound, an Oakland-based nonprofit that works across CA to support people in reentry from prison and jail -- as well as their families, communities and advocates -- to navigate and overcome the disenfranchisement caused by mass incarceration and over-criminalization in the United States today. 

Please note that anything said on the show is being expressed as a personal opinion of our guests, and does not reflect the views of Root & Rebound as an organization.

Heroes, Icons, & Legends  

We all have that person who inspires us to our core. While 2016 has been a seriously shitty year for losing our favorites- R.I.P Prince, Bowie, Alan Rickman, Muhammad Ali, and so many more- all of these lives have touched ours in some way. TDW talks about who’s going to be sad to lose, death in your family vs. death in the celebrity world, and exactly how much we do just for the media.
