Episode 16 – Toby’s Secret Language

Episode 16 – Toby’s Secret Language


Patrick sits down with Huntington’s very own Toby Poole to discuss his cult web series “Lords Of Fun” Patrick tries to crack the language of this perverse and often baffling show. Toby and Patrick discuss everything in this episode from dubious art exhibits to White Jesus to the Moomins, to John McCain to “Golden Showers.” Its a strange one folks. Plus, Patrick extolls the virtues of Instagram





Episode 15: Little Miss Stoneybrook and Jesus




Patrick welcomes newly mented Jean Valjean “Ryan Hardiman” to the podcast. Ryan is as close as our state has to a rockstar, with credits ranging from crowdpleasing performances in “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Symphony Idol” to smaller more enigmatic theatrical pieces such as “The Pillowman.” Patrick discusses Ryan’s method, madness, and memories of nearly two decades of community theater (with occasional interjections from Ryan.) Plus, Ryan reveals the one production he most regrets, and Patrick extols the virtues of a good pair of pants.

Episode 14 – Hello, Penny


Episode 14 – Hello Penny!



And we’re back! Out of hibernation, That Conversation starts out season 3 with a crash course in gender studies and horror films with burlesque dancer and actor Penny Maple. Penny explains burlesque with a wink and a smile. She talks about  being a woman who loves a woman and why she identifies herself as a lesbian despite her admitted bisexual tendencies. Also, we go hardcore into the gender dynamics of modern horror cinema with a special focus on the work of local auteur Eamon Hardiman.

Episode 12 – Mike and the new girl

Season 12 ends with a bang. Patrick talks with actor Mike Murdock about ARTS, the Arts Resources for the Tri-State, and their production of Cabaret. Plus we get into discussions of the nature of theater criticism, the play that changed his life, and the awesomeness that is Athens, OH. This is the last episode of season 1 and thus ends with a bang.

Episode 8: Boy Crazy Kevin Pauley

After a great delay Patrick talks with “The Best Crooner In Charleston,” Kevin Pauley. Kevin has worked with some of WV’s most important theatrical directors including Jack Cirillo, Dan Kehde, and Devon Nuckles. Kevin talk about his experiences in community theater which has seen him play everything from heroin addicts, to the mentally handicapped, to Satan, to cats… That’s right cats… Kevin talks about blending physicality with language, acting as therapy, and doing the Samuel Beckett with his wife. And as usual, Patrick uses this opportunity to put community theater in general on trial, and Kevin gives an impassioned and personal defense, one that touches even Patrick. Also, they touch on some thing called “The No Pants Players”

Plus, Patrick tries to channel Marc Maron, but ends up just sounding like Glen Beck.

Note to listeners, this one goes on a lot longer than usual because its been a long week, and editing this is a beast.
