SCOUT DURWOOD

EPISODE 60

WOMAN OF WHIMSY

The amazingly talented Scout Durwood is dropping in and we are talking about her new album "Woman of Whimsy." Also, a little about her journey in NY with burlesque and stand up comedy which eventually lead her to make the best of both worlds with this impressive album. Not only is it funny but I’m impressed how good the music is. And you’re not gonna believe it, but she’s also a really sweet awesome person. We talk about being sustainable and environmentally conscious. Which is exhausting and rewarding at the same time. We reminisce on all those documentaries that forced us to be this way. Scout has a great idea about global karma and a way to make people aware of their choices. It is strange how being more aware of this makes you feel like more of a dick, even though you’re actually being less of one. Also, those teenagers who were charged with child porn because they sexted dirty pics to each other. Not sure were we stand on this but we discuss it, and I’m guilty of it… in fact, a large portion of my life story can be told through photos I’ve sexted. So not sure how I feel… other topics are Reality TV, social media, and how hard it is to adopt a dog. Song Excerpts are available on iTunes "Good Night Big Apple" and “Prius” Make sure you download Scout’s whole album it’s hilarious, smart, and her timing is ridiculous.
