This weekly podcast is based on the Pittsburgh humor blog, YaJagoff.com

John and Rachael scouted all of the hot locations to visit dahntahn for #LUN17 and didn't stop to eat, so Guinness and chocolate covered cashews fueled our interviewing efforts. From stage announcements to Fifth Avenue Place, back to the TSE tent with the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, we certainly covered some ground. Plus, the final trek to the 63rd floor, and then a few more, to reach the roof of the US Steel Building for the view of a lifetime.

YaJagoff! Podcast - Show Notes: Episode Music: Random Holiday Music to fit the mood!

SPONSOR: Total Sports Enterprises is a sports enthusiast’s dream because it is Pittsburgh's exclusive supplier of signed memorabilia from the Steelers, Pirates and Penguins. TSE partners Play It Forward, have collaborated on a city-wide campaign bringing together the biggest names in Pittsburgh sports specifically to get every eligible Pittsburgher to become organ donors, raise funds to support the Starzl Center for Pediatric Transplantation excellence, and educate the whole city over the course of one season.

00:40 Opening: John and Rachael pregame for announcing entertainment and talk about the third year of the podcast and its significance to LUN!

04:08: Guys in Steelers suits from Pine Grove, PA attended the Steeler game the night before LUN and stuck around to check out the splendor of LUN.

06:17 YaJagoff shout out from stage and Jeff Jimmerson announcement about his longevity in Pittsburgh and recognition as the Pens voice.

09:03 Jeremy Delaney and Leigh of the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership talk about how everything was in full swing at the very start of the festivities and how LUN has evolved.

12:32 Kyle and Kathleen Conway take over the podcast! Where did the OJ's go? The Original Jagoffs! May not be needed anymore after their commentary.

15:31 Post-performance interview with Joe Grushecky and he chats up his new LP at PledgeMusic.com plus dishes on some crazy on the road stories during his decades of performing.

19:40 Dave DiCello takes a break from the long lines inside of his Fifth Avenue gallery to reminisce the first podcast ever and the crazy photo requests he receives regularly.

25:59 Rich Fosbrink of the Theatre Historical Society of America invites you to cross the threshold to 1905 Pittsburgh and the forerunner of the modern movie theater, the first Nickelodeon.

30:24 Lyndsey Smith was not born in Pittsburgh, but has certainly gotten Pittsburgh smitten by her sound. This Opera-trained performer adores the nineties and Nirvana. Check out her website, LyndseySmithMusic.com

37:33 Closing: John and Rachael have a sad it's over send off. The festivities wind down but it is off to the rooftop to enjoy the scenery and company. Happy LUN17!

Every podcast needs a theme! The YaJagoff podcast will certainly not under deliver! So consider this week’s a double theme with hijacking other people’s podcasts… and their name has to be Mike! Well, and we couldn’t miss John Knight being aggravated about something. Lucky for us, he is not aggravated about comedian Mike Wysocki‘s standup shows, successful Epicast podcast, or Dr. Mike’s tips on how to make holidays accommodating for pets. Even if your name isn’t Mike and you don’t have a podcast to hijack, listen in and don’t be aggravated!

Question of the Day: Favorite #LUN moment?

#YaJagoffPodcast | Episode 94 | November 14, 2017

Nov 6, 2017

Where else do you laugh, cry (from laughter), jump in place, crawl through legs, sing and dance all before 9 a.m.? The grand opening of the new Arcade Theater, which is just a block from the old building that housed creative minds who simply grew out of their creative space. This troupe of improv specialists chat up their workshops, performances and cultural district love fest...ntaaaw!

Question of the Day: If you were in an old-time peep-show film, what would be the title of the film?

YaJagoff! Podcast -  Show Notes: Episode Music: Zack Keim Get his music: Get Hip Records

01:22 Rachael and John are hanging out in the corner of the 2nd floor of the brand-new Arcade Comedy Theater watching the door fly open and witnessing impromptu skits, random singing and overall excitement over the completion of the new building. The Arcade is such a great place for stand-up comedy, workshops and was even celebrated by Kevin McMahon of the Cultural Trust and Jeremy Waldrup of the PDP. That is the level of Arcade Theater coolness!

What was on the blog?: Some Jagoff stole a wallet inside of a local magistrate’s office and used the cash from it to pay his own fine! Who does that? See blog post at YaJagoff.com

06:20 Kevin McMahon, President and CEO of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. When will he take his first improv class? Can we get him to sing? He came to the premiere of the new building before overseeing all things cultural for the day!

09:27    Some members of the awesome improv group, Player One, crack us up. What does the new building mean to them? And what would be their peep-show film title? The three guys and one gal combo talk about how improv exercises break the ice at any time, the importance of workshops and how both help a person come into their own. Their smiles and jumping from excitement are contagious!

24:08 Kristy and Jethro (Jeff) Nolen are two of the founders of the Arcade Theater, who host the hilarious Dinner with the Nolen’s each month. They beam with pride about how their improv concept grew and even how they met—expect some spot-on yinzer talk while they chat up meeting in Chicago.

33:31    Abby Fudor and Mike Rubino are the other half of the Arcade Comedy Theater founding team. These two were bursting at the seams to discuss the importance of completing the improv practice phrase 'Yes and'... Plus they rejoice at the end of construction!

43:55 Zack Keim is a fantastic young Pittsburgh musician on Get Hip Records. He has been sneaking into open stages since he was 16 (He’s 20 now!) What’s his peep show title? Hear his off the cuff Ya Jagoff song too!
