Host Gary Zabinski and co-host Frank Tourangau engage in the art of lively conversation from the vantage point of BOOTH ONE (formerly known as TalkSports).<br> <br> In the heyday of the Pump Room at the Ambassador East Hotel here in Chicago, Booth One was the most sought after seat in the house, as the privileged celebrities and other luminaries who were seated there could be seen from the lobby, the bar and the rest of the room. A place to see and to be seen. Sadly, the original Booth One is now lost to the ages, but still resides as a display in the lobby of the UP Club at the Second City.<br> <br> On our BOOTH ONE podcast, we attempt to revive that feeling of being in the best seat in the house by seeking out and describing our Booth One experiences for our listeners. We’ll be talking about our recent Booth One brushes with famous guests, first class events, and behind-the-scenes encounters. We’ll also continue to have Booth One conversations covering a variety of topics, both current and esoteric. We’ll send Frank and Gary to some of the more exotic places and events in this great metropolis and beyond, looking for Booth One-type experiences to share with you.<br> <br> Anything is fair game on BOOTH ONE, reflective of the kinds of conversations that must have taken place in the legendary Pump Room’s first-class seating. Be a fly on the wall as Gary and Frank attempt to recreate the magic, mystery and mischief of the BOOTH ONE experience for your amusement and edification!<br> <br> Send us your Booth One experiences and we’ll share them with our listeners on the podcast. Your reservation to BOOTH ONE is waiting!

In the world of music podcasting, there are basically two categories - podcasts by fans, and podcasts by famed musicians that have reached the pinnacle of success. Somewhere in the middle of that is the Talk Toomey podcast. Hosted by Joshua Toomey, who previously was a member of national recording artists Primer 55, Talk Toomey avoids the pitfalls of fandom and the backslapping glad handing that comes from successful bands shamelessly talking to each other. Instead, you get focused, powerful and real looks into “the inner circle” of being a hard rock/heavy metal band, complete with questions most are too afraid to ask because their experience doesn’t meet or exceed the level needed to ask and relate. Talk Toomey has been regularly hailed as a top show since the onset, being highlighted on sites like Blabbermouth, Brave Words, etc. Talk Toomey is released for music fans free every Thursday!

So….what does it mean to barely make it?<br> <br> <br> <br> Well, exactly what it sounds like. It was a few years back that I originally discovered (read: stumbled upon) this phrase and for whatever reason it has resonated with me. It encapsulates what we are all doing which is barely making our way through life. This podcast is meant to be a fun and funny outlet where post-grads, millennials, basic betches, whatever you want to call this group of 20-somethings can come to for a break from the real world (which is really freakin’ hard BTW – shouts to no one for telling us this). Laugh, ask questions, cringe, cry, thank your lucky stars you’re not making the mistakes I am, whatever you do when you listen to this podcast just remember to relax and that life really isn’t that serious.
