We find ourselves on the Great Lawn of the North Shore with Tunch Ilkin and Craig Wolfley at their annual Light of Life Rescue Mission “Walk for the Homeless.” We have some fun with them, the Light of Life staff, Mayor Bill Peduto and Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald about who would play Tunch and Wolf in a “buddy movie” about them.  And we have a big announcement from Shawn Raneri of J & D Waterproofing.

Question of the day (We have 2):

 What is your fav Pittsburgh outdoor activity?

Who would play Tunch and Wolf in a “buddy movie” about them?

Since the weather crushed our hopes and dreams to ride the Pittsburgh Segways, we went to the studio.  The Community Liver Alliance “Steel Chef Challenge” is coming May 21st and, what if you wanted to downsize your house or inherited a home? Sue Baumgart, local liquidation specialist has the lowdown.  Plus, do you hate those Facebook “Concert Lies” questions?

We went crafting at the brand new Hobby Prodigy at The Mall at Robinson.  And, since we went crafting, we decided to take two very “creative” Pittsburghers… artist Baron Batch and comedian Jim Krenn.  Somehow, it summed up that Baron is going to adopt a cat and name it Jim Krenn.  Thanks much to our guest co-host, this week, Kristen Doerschner, Assistant Managing Editor of the Beaver County Times.

LISTEN to the Podcast show right here below:

YaJagoff! Podcast -  Show Notes: Episode Music: Chase and the Barons.  Purchase their music here

01:20   Kristen Doerschner, Assistant Managing Editor for the Beaver County Times is our guest co-host this week.  She claims to NOT be talented at crafting so she’s a perfect co-host.

                Jennifer and Josh Miller, owners of the brand new concept store, “Hobby Prodigy” at The Mall at Robinson. They helped us find creativity in all of our guests on this episode.  They even made us a YaJagoff.com craft beer bottle carrier!

SPONSOR: Total Sports Enterprises has launched the epitome of office makeover contests.  TSE and the All Star Grille in Robinson are teaming up for businesses to win a lunch tray and slaw for their company and be entered to win an office update, TSE style, up to $2,000.00!

Picture your office in black and gold.  For details, visit www.tseshop.com.

05:17   Jennifer Miller, co-owner of the Hobby Prodigy talks to us about her family’s relocation to Pittsburgh, the Hobby Prodigy concept AND we teach her some Pittsburghese.

15:51   “The Artist” Baron Batch is crafting with us!  What’s the story behind the elephant design? What’s next? What craft did he make?

33:45   Comedian Jim Krenn is crafting with us…and, somehow, out of all of this, Baron is going to adopt a cat and name it Jim Krenn which, of course, they crafted a cat ID for!

47:23   As we rap up, thanks to Ten Four Social for connecting us with Jennifer and Josh of Hobby Prodigy.  Jennifer lists all of the crafts we made for the podcast.
