This week we were joined by one of our favorite New York transplants, comedian Thomas Dale! Before we got down to serious Soft Spot biz, we chatted about mental and physical health, Thomas’s ‘Creep Cam’ being the BEST thing on the internet, and we even touched on the esoteric! We gush over the hunks of the early aughts and why Thomas loves straight boys, which brought us to Thomas’s Soft Spot- teen rom coms of the late 90’s and early 2000s! Thomas had us in tears and Meg laughed so hard she felt like she had completed PX90 by the time this ep was over!

Talk Nerdy to Me (with Roz Drezfalez)
Softies rejoice! One of our favorite guests and people, from his podcast Ghosted, Roz Drezfalez is back on the spot. First Meg and Julian discuss their recent cruise (oh ship!) before they get into it with Roz about his formative childhood obsessions. From clowning (literally), to the rock and roll scene of suburban Michigan, to pro wrestling, we discover all the component parts that came together to make one awesome queen. Come and get it!
Soft Spot LIVE!!!!!! (with Moses Storm, Matt Ingebretson and Lizzy Cooperman)
The Soft Spot welcomes Moses Storm, Matt Ingebretson and Lizzy Cooperman to their first live show recorded at CRUX Boutique in Los Angeles.
It was time to do another duet for our hardest softies so Meg and Julian go sans guest for a show about their worst (best?) break-ups! They say that breaking up is hard to do, but what they don’t say is how fun it is to talk about it after it’s over. Meg talks about dumping a guy on his way to pick her up for a dance, while Julian revisits the time he got punched in the face in the middle of a busy intersection. And since this is the Soft Spot, of course they talk about break up songs (Duran Duran and Broken Social Scene — can you guess whose is whose?). So get a haircut, get a gym membership, and start a new hobby it is time to break up baby.
