Episode 18 - The Nacho Bar is a Lie (with Glad Douse)

Our hosts are joined by rockstar in attitude and profession, Gladys Douse (who also happens to be Darek’s mother). Glad shares her experiences as a lifelong Vermonter who now lives in North Carolina, as well her musical journey and evolution. The group also chats about the lie that is the storied baby shower nacho bar, sun couch season, perms and so much more.

Episode 17 - Definitely Road Vaginas

As Darek embarks on paternity leave, we close out Season 1 of Bitter Coffey with some (arguably TOO much) excitement about Winooski’s upcoming road vaginas, engage in a robust punctuation debate that would damage most friendships, and with the help of guest-host Mo Citro, further explore our odd fascination with Celine Dion. At one point in the show, Kelly begins speaking in a Canadian accent that isn’t detected until post-production, and we may or may not lovingly compare Darek’s baby with a tuned-up bicycle. Michele encounters her first live rat and records a video of him or her running errands around town. We will be back for Season 2 after childbirth & adjustment to fatherhood, summer courses and open-mouth naps in the sun.  Stay fresh this summer, Cheesebags!

Episode 16 - Warmly, Morgan

On this episode of the definitely still a “comedy” podcast Bitter Coffey, Kelly hatches a plan to start a band with Darek’s Mom, reads a letter from friend of the show Morgan, and our hosts offer some very dubious relationship advice. We also discover that one poor listener has been suffering through the podcast (more than most) at 1.5 speed, which leads us into the dark and disturbing world of “drunk speed”. Darek also goes off on a rant about gendered baby clothing, and Kelly is chased by a literal beaver.
