Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #23

Last show of 2014 kicks off with Pyra explaining why there was no show last week and telling us about her Christmas knitting.

Moving on, we get the tale of the Shrinky Dinks Shrew and why Pyra is definitely not the most pathetic spinster in town as well as a 2014 recap of whatever random incidents come to mind before wrapping up with some 2015 resolutions.


Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #22

This week’s show kicks off with a recap of Pyra’s Yuk Yuk’s set from last week, including audio of the set, and a couple upcoming project notes. Pyra then starts ranting about Rolling Stone’s BS UVa rape story and broads bitching about rape stories not being believed yet watering the term down to include any unwanted flirting and insisting this story was accurate even if it wasn’t true and then not seeing how that kind of wolf-crying leads to a lack of belief in accusations.

Pyra also laments being left out of all the raping frenzy. Maybe after she hits the gym more in 2015 she’ll get some hot guys wanting to impose themselves on her?

She then wraps the show up with a gross story involving a menstrual mishap at work.


Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #21

This week, Pyra bitches about her screwed up back and hip and job and life, along with the stupid reason why she can’t quit her job. She then tells us about her first ever acupuncture appointment and updates us on the FrogBoy and eBay situation, tweaks to her Yuk Yuk’s set, and why even a “dead on the Internet” Axl Rose still has to pay taxes before going into a rant about poverty, IQ, choices, examples from both sides of her family, and tells the story of a family friend who survived Auschwitz.


Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #20

This week, Pyra bitches about winter coming to Vancouver, inappropriate workplace music [“In my day we listened to nice filthy songs…”], and wonders what’s up with all the Santa’s belt buckle decorations this year.

She also gives pointers on the proper way to shirk at work, laughs at the CBC reporting on their own handling of the Jian Ghomeshi scandal, updates us on the new maQLu album and plans for CiTR’s 24 Hours of Radio Art next month, and rants about the eBay annoyance of the week.


Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #19

Now with 50% more Vince Neil bashing as Pyra reviews the recent sold out Mötley Crüe show in Vancouver. That said, no matter how awful Vince Neil is, Mötley Crüe is still a far superior live to Nine Inch Nails [75% more NIN bashing!].

Pyra also gets you up to date with the latest gossip from the 1980s and Metal Sludge reviews of rock stars’ sexual performances, then explains why hostility better than indifference with a story about Lisa Lampanelli destroying a heckler in Vancouver last month.

She also laments having no volunteers to lug her crap to LA with her, talks about a creepy dream she had and how she possibly got mistaken for having made wiser career choices.


Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #18

This week Pyra the spinster tries to make sense of strange items in the wedding supplies aisle like unity sand, discusses the care and housing of a guitar dude husband, speculates on if Carrie worked in retail using her telekinesis for stocking shifts, and wonders if the upcoming amnesty executive order might be her ticket to weaselling her way into cheap Los Angeles real estate.

Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #17

This week Pyra plugs her upcoming showcase at the Vancouver Yuk Yuk’s Dec 9 with the rest of her stand up comedy class and tells some stories/jokes about her crazy relatives including who her grandmother’s favorite pinup boy is.

She then talks about her tastes in porn, Tommy Lee, the crazy cucumber lady at Superstore, and her not-so-sordid Friday night which included the pick up line “You love them, I want you to love me too…”

She wraps the show up talking about trying to decide on a wreath for Castle Draculea, chasing after a silver star that might not have ever existed, and wondering what to cook for a vegetarian guy and if “vegan cookies” are simply made from cardboard sprinkled in sugar.


Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #16

In this week’s episode, Pyra explains why Halloween was a bust at Castle Draculea and talks about being sleep deprived both now and at an old studio session.

She chats about long term day job options, lamenting that she’s probably no longer trophy wife material. But if she can learn to type well, it’s not too late to become an office bimbo.

Pyra then goes off on scrapbookers trying to be rock and roll, whether or not there are divorce celebration stickers, and the story of Little Jeffrey and his scrapbooking mommy before suggesting an alternative to Movember and plugging this week’s The Zamo the Destroyer Show.

Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #15

This week finds Pyra delivering a parable about iguanas chewing on houseplants as parallel to borne-out suspicions in recent terrorist attacks in Quebec and Ottawa and telling lazy comics to try a little harder because “I hate Stephen Harper” is a set-up, not a punchline.

She also comments on dumb broads wanting Justin Trudeau to be Prime Minister on account of his looks and rants about music industry assholes wanting to loot more taxpayer money for grants, tells the tale of the crazy dude who thinks he’s Jesus with political ambitions and a couple workplace anecdotes involving glitter before wrapping up with why she’s not a cougar and how that no longer matters.

Under My Skin Podcast: Episode #14

This week Pyra talks about her new day job [early morning, actually], and contemplates a new career move that would involve better hours and lots of fresh air.

She also tells of doing her first comedy open mic and recites her material from it as it should have been done [as opposed to the way it actually came out] before the show wraps up with a couple jokes/anecdotes about her favorite band.
