EMPLOYEE of the MONTH
About This Show
Employee of the Month is a talk show hosted by Catie Lazarus. She interviews phenomenal folks about their careers, be it comedian Jon Stewart or activist Gloria Steinem or Congressman Barney Frank or the Guinness Book of World Record Holder for Most Guinness Book of World Records. These candid conversations may inspire you to finish your novel or start one or simply self medicate. Either way, she hopes you have as much fun listening as she and her guests do talking. Her guests also receive the coveted Employee of the Month Award, which falls somewhere between a Nobel Peace Prize and free cup of coffee. The podcast is released weekly and you can attend live tapings monthly in New York at Joe's Pub. To get involved, go to www.employeeofthemonthshow.com or @catielazarus on Twitter.

The Yes Men on Trump, Barbie, and Bird Dogging
Do The Yes Men know how to beat Trump at his own game? The media savvy duo Jacques Servin and Igor Vamos gained fame in 1990’s for their lefty political pranks, which led to multiple documentaries, cult following of like-minded activists, and, most important, corporations taking notice. They exposed Dow Chemical for failing to compensate thousands of victims of their oil spill in Bhopal, India. More recently, The Yes Men created a parody NRA website offering to deliver “life-saving firearms” to “poor urban centers,” which led the NRA to shut down 38,000 affiliate websites. We spoke about exercising our democratic rights to resist, stand up, and survive.
Our interview was recorded live at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater. Our next live taping is Thursday, March 16th at 9:30. Find out more at @catielazarus and www.employeeofthemonthshow.com
