It's big episode Six-O! As we push into the sixties, Jay, Becca and Tice hang out with actor/musician Laura Mills, the Lucy to Jay's Snoopy, and maybe even a voice you have heard on the phone without knowing it. During this episode, Laura shares tons of glorious info with us, including her experiences playing Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the Beast, Doralee in 9 to 5, and moms in so many productions from her youth. She also gives us the story of her meeting and courtship with her husband, her voice changing when she really did become a mom, transitioning into songwriting, and her work in local elections and mental health. In this episode you can hear "We are Virginia", Laura's tribute to Virginia Tech from the aftermath of 2007 shooting along with the story behind its creation. And in addition to all that, Laura drops a bombshell on Jay when she reveals she has recorded voiceovers for automated phone menus, which leads to her giving us a brief course in different styles of pleasant robotic voices. To cap it all off, we play an intensely competitive game of Musical Theatre Trivia, with everyone making their own custom ring-in noises! Buck-KAW!!
P.S. Laura wants you to vote! So do we! Go here if you need help getting started!
