This week, Sara and Nikki conduct a no-nonsense all-business intro before announcing their pick for the YHTBT-designed listener-proposed website to be created on Squarespace: an entire site exclusively devoted to Talking Pee. The ladies welcome rising comic Michael Che (Best Week Ever, Letterman, soon SNL) to discuss the art of calling out an audience's oversensitivity regarding such topics as race or bulldogs. The trio touch upon all the complications and potential depression of watching porn and end up highlighting a host of real-world gestures, scents, and compliments that do a better job of turning them on anyway. To close, everyone Talks Pee about Tim Minchin and his about-to-open Matilda, Mario Badescu and his magical skin creams, and Thai food as a whole.

This week, Sara and Nikki react live on-mic to their first taste of the Suit & Tie video (or at least to the best bits, until all that wacky jumping business). After considering to which drug Vine is most similar, the ladies share some dark thoughts and weird feelings that follow them through life and the causes and goals that help them cope. Looking like a badass angel from a half-remembered dream (probably involving cereal), rocker, proprietor, and professional partier Andrew W.K. suddenly appears to give one crazy-entertaining interview. Besides discussing the many merits of the Internet and his first-rate Twitter, Andrew riffs on awesome childhood parties of yore, mind-blowing vision boards, and the only Party Tip he ever regrets endorsing.

This week, Nikki and Sara marvel at how, two weeks in, they've already gotten used to the process of making their television show. Sara recently saw Django Unchained in a now-rare moment of free time and when she says she liked it, Brooklyn-born comic and certified "grown man" (see ep. 96) Yannis Pappas (Modern Comedian, Twitter) offers his wholehearted agreement. After flinging fury at Brooklyn's bogus new neighborhoods, Philly's sports obsessions, and Beantown's general demeanor, Yannis tells the story of the shooting that shoved him into maturity early on in his career. The trio muse a bit on their futile little legacies but soon leap into a joyous edition of Talking Pee that includes a previral guessing game on YouTube, a playful pedometer on everyone's waistband, Yannis's modest dog zoo, and Nikki's upcoming appearance on The Burn. Check her out this Tuesday (2/12) on Comedy Central at 10.30pm/9.30c...
...conveniently right before you flip over to Nikki & Sara LIVE on MTV at 11pm/10c. Nikki & Sara LIVE: like a podcast for your eyes!
