Show Notes for Wednesday November 20, 2019

Today we visit with Felicia Day. A professional actress who has appeared in numerous television shows and films. She is currently recurring on the CW show "Supernatural", and the SyFy series "The Magicians".

However, Felicia is best known for her work in the web video world, behind and in front of the camera. She co-starred in Joss Whedon's Internet musical "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog," which was ranked in the "Top 10 Best TV of 2008" by Time Magazine, Entertainment Weekly and People Magazine and won an Emmy in 2009. She also created and starred in the seminal web series "The Guild," which ran for six seasons. "The Guild" won numerous awards for web video excellence, garnering a PGA nomination for best web series in 2011. She expanded the brand into numerous merchandizing opportunities, including a hit comic book series with Dark Horse Comics. Recently, costume and props from the show were admitted to the Smithsonian American History collection as examples of early web media pioneering.

In 2012 Felicia created a funded YouTube channel and production company called Geek & Sundry. Since launching in April 2012, the channel has garnered over 1.7 million subscribers on YouTube, and over 30k on the livestreaming platform Twitch. In 2014, the company was sold to Legendary Entertainment.

Felicia currently is working on her own creative projects for television and the web. She streams on Twitch weekly, and is working on a personal podcast


In Embrace Your Weird, Felicia threads personal anecdotes and plenty of personality through a practical, hands-on guide to finding, rekindling, and enhancing creative passions. Part guided journal and part imaginative workbook, the book covers topics including:

Discovering Your Hero Self - Our one-of-a-kind personal perspective is what makes us special. From unearthing childhood delights to poking around in the present, readers will take stock of what unique ideas and interests makes them "weird" - and how this weirdness can be wielded as a superpower.

24-year-old Charleston resident Parrish Brown hit up his local McDonald's to give into a sweet tea craving. And while he included a special request with the order, an extra lemon, the chain delivered something... else: a cup full of weed. Brown claims he picked up the drink, drained it while at work, and became super high. After allegedly feeling said effects, he opened the lid to find three bags of marijuana. Per his account, the bags were punctured by his straw. According to Hilton Head-based newspaper the The Island Packet, who spoke with Brown following the incident, he had never experimented with weed before and didn't recognize the flavor. So, he just kept on guzzling the tea, despite acknowledging that it tasted off. Brown did, however, realize something was awry after he admittedly became “high as a kite.” His dad quickly advised him to call 9-1-1, but unsurprisingly they didn't take his concern all that seriously.(

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

An east Alabama Walmart reopened last Thursday following its closure after a man created a diversion with a flaming shopping cart and attempted to skirt past security with a cart full of groceries. The attempt failed. According to the LaFayette Sun, 28-year-old Troy Maloy Brown is alleged to have loaded up the shopping cart with flammable objects and to have set it on fire in the home décor section. Video footage captures Brown then moving to another part of the store and retrieving a cart full of groceries. He attempted to flee the store with the loaded shopping cart as the first cart burned, but he was stopped by a Wal-Mart associate at the door and was made to part with the groceries. Brown was picked up in a silver van. He was subsequently found at his residence. He attempted to resist arrest but was tased. He faces charges of Burglary 2nd Degree, Arson 1st Degree, and Criminal Mischief 1st Degree.
