The JV Club with Janet Varney

Janet gets swept up by the ethereal Kimmy Robertson (Twin Peaks) and a pondering of mango yogurt, serendipitous events, curling toes and the new envy theme of the podcast (not actually the new theme).

Nerdist worlds collide with this week’s delightful guest, Alicia Lutes (Fangirling). After JV appeared on Alicia’s show yesterday (Wed. 2/28), Alicia stopped by to dig into lots of juicy high school-era stuff and the perils of feeling so much! Otherwise known as so many feels.

Crack open your Nancy Drew mysteries and take it easy on that white wine— it’s the marvelous Mo Collins on this week’s episode of the podcast! JV and Mo talk oil painting, a bit of light dorm-defacing, and throw a big salute to some of the “first ladies of rock" (We’re looking at YOU, Pat Benatar!).

Episode 272 is a break from tradition! Janet, freshly home from SF Sketchfest, welcomes back guest Eliza Skinner for a conversation about - gasp- current events! Seriously everybody- there isn’t even a M.A.S.H. game. But there IS a lot of honest chewing on various confusing and important issues if we do say so ourselves. Enjoy!

SF Sketchfest staple Irene Tu sits down with JV for a debrief on having smarts, breaking hearts, basketballs, and pink walls in this episode that definitely does not rhyme the way parts of this description for some reason did. Happy Sketchfest everyone!

It’s a JV Club re-release with comedian Cameron Esposito (Put Your Hands Together) and SHE! IS! GREAT! There’s nothing like a story about a medical semi-crisis in a foreign country where you don’t speak the language to get the old podcast blood flowing. But it doesn’t stop there… because who doesn’t love talking to their parents about sex? NOTE: The prior two references are NOT RELATED.

Get your doughnut craving ready for the pink pastry box of podcast episodes with Lili Mirojnick (SyFy’s “Happy”), whose soccer cleats got hung up for a career in theatre after many a post-game glazed binge. Plus, M.A.S.H. brings about reflections on 90’s era Leo and JV startles herself remembering last night’s dream about a certain teen idol of her own!

Find out why this week’s guest Tara Sands' (Pokemon and a million other things) favorite quote from “Tootsie” is a hundred times better than JV’s; what really goes on inside (and after) the Jelly Belly factory tour; and how many words with double o’s can be jammed into one game of M.A.S.H!
