These times are tough and strange, and we’ve learned that even the most exceptional and talented among us can get the boot at any time, in any industry. Greg Nibler and Sarah X Dylan have embraced their recent unemployment (they were both formerly of the Rick Emerson Show on KUFO) and turned themselves into the spokespeople of a new era of podcasting and “funemployment”.
Crack open a Mickey’s daily with this duo, who use the excuse that “day-drinking and podcasting” go hand in hand. And many seem to agree with this logic, as they’ve already scored themselves such guests as Meat Loaf, Bill Plympton, Bill Oakley (The Simpsons) and many more.
Both Nibler and Dylan aren’t strangers to the wild world of media; aside from his work on KUFO, Nibler has spent the past 7 years in radio, has made his mark in the Portland music scene for 10 years in various bands, and continues to work in local film and television as an actor and writer.
Sarah Dylan has been on the airwaves for eight years, managing to make her mark on over six stations as a radio personality and producer. She also tried her hand as a television reporter on Channel 6 news for a year before accepting that being on a talk show is where her heart always remains.
And talk is exactly what Nibler and Dylan excel at, with their first episode consisting of much conversation about their new lot in life—the daily happenings of newly unemployed “Broadcast Professionals”, Nibler’s sports round-up “Ball Talk”, and various odds and ends from the world of pop culture, music, and everyday life.
