Pody Cast Episode 17

April 29th, 2015

  1. Rob Gordon (Todd Congelliere) is the owner of a failing record store in Chicago, where he sells music the old-fashioned way -- on vinyl. Although they have an encyclopedic knowledge of pop music and are consumed by the music scene, it's of no help to Rob, whose needle skips the love groove when his long-time girlfriend, Laura (Hal Ba Dal), walks out on him. As he examines his failed attempts at romance with Liggy (Matt Army) and happiness with Colon (Kolon Kemph), the process finds him being dragged, kicking and screaming, into adulthood.

January 25th, 2015

  1. Todd Congelliere and Hal Ba Dal return to their old high school -- this time as teachers. They're put in charge of a class full of unruly remedial students called the Pody Heads. They're a bunch of wisecracking, underachieving and incorrigible students, and it takes all of Todd and Hal's humor -- and experience as former Pody Heads themselves -- to deal with the class.
