received_10111889820381534What does the nose know? Bring your nose, and the rest of you, along with us as we sniff out the differences between Cyrano de Bergerac and the Wishbone episode “Cyranose.” We are joined by Pat Venable, an expert in French language and Erin’s brother. Our discussion covers songs by The Police, French ennui, and Wishbone’s interpretation of all things French.

Episode 5: October 5th, 2016

IMG_2156.jpgWe walk that walk and talk that talk, or at least try our best, in this episode about select African folk tales and Wishbone’s “Bark That Bark.” Special guest Chris Silverberg joins us for some valuable life lessons from tricksy Anansi the Spider and The People Who Could Fly in this musically lit episode.

 

About Our Guest

Chris Silverberg is a native of Plano, TX (where Wishbone was filmed!) and graduated from Columbia University. He now lives and works in New York City as a writer, producer, and notably an Assistant Editor on the same show as Claire.

Episode 4: September 21st, 2016


IMG_3001Join our mad journey through Homer’s “The Odyssey” and Wishbone’s “Homer, Sweet Homer” in which we talk about mixed messages and Arbor Councils. And maybe the book and episode just a little – with special guest, Adriana Tringone!

 

 

About Our Guest

Adriana currently works in retail but hopes of one day writing for television. She’s soon moving from New York to LA to pursue that dream—or, at least, in search of better and more consistent weather. Two things she loves are talking about dogs and talking about literature, and she’s grateful to Wishbonafide for offering her an opportunity to do both at once.

Episode 2: August 17th, 2016

IMG_2992Get ready for a bowlful of excitement and hilarity, but mostly confusion, in this episode about “Oliver Twist” by Charles Dickens and Wishbone’s “A Twisted Tail,” where we get tangled up in Dickens, with special guest, Ben Abraham!

 

 

 

 

About Our Guest

Benjamin-Ernest Abraham is a freelance director based in New York City. He graduated from Loyola University Maryland in 2015 with a degree in Global Studies and a minor in economics. Somehow, he has found himself pursuing a life in the theatre, despite the fact that he’s in a tremendous amount of student debt for a degree that has nothing to do with it. When he’s not directing, Ben is usually found rock-climbing, reading, seeing even more theatre, or dreaming about going backpacking again. His favorite episode of Wishbone is “Digging up the Past.”

Episode 1: August 3rd, 2016

IMG_3016If you ever went adventuring with a BFF and got into some serious shenanigans, this podcast episode is sure to bring back those fond memories. Nostalgia is the name of the game in the flagship episode about “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer ” by Mark Twain, and Wishbone’s “A Tail in Twain” with special guest and co-producer, Rory Nachbar!
