Comedians Lisa Landry and Tommy Savitt get enlightened by The Tommy Lama. Lisa talks about converting to Judaism. Also Zack Ford from Think Progress, and new music from Will Ryan And The Cactus County Cowboys.

Lisa Landry came up through the famed New York City comedy circuit to become an audience favorite at clubs, colleges and theaters across the country. Landry has appeared on CBS’s “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” & “The Bonnie Hunt Show” on NBC. She starred in her own half hour Special, “Comedy Central Presents Lisa Landry.” And a nationwide vote catapulted her special to third place out of 100 top comedians in Comedy Central’s annual “Standup Showdown.” She’s the first woman to ever place in the top three.

Landry’s CD Put Your Keys in the Key Bowl was selected by iTunes as one of the “Top 10 Best Comedy CDs” of 2008. She is one of a handful of comedians chosen by TBS for their “We Know Funny” series of stand-up style commercials. She’s also appeared on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and co-starred on NBC’s “Law and Order: SVU.”

The Louisiana native was featured on “Brett Butler’s Southern Belles of Comedy” DVD. She did commentary for E!’s “Forbes Top 100 Celebrities” and CMT’s “20 Greatest Redneck Moments,” where Landry was chosen as a “Top Pick” by TV Guide. Her guest appearances include Fox’s “Morning Show with Mike and Juliet,” the “Bob and Tom Show,” Fox’s “Redeye” and the “Hollyweird” segment on MSNBC’s “Scarborough Country.” For four years, Landry was a comedy writer for US Weekly Magazine. Punchline Magazine describes Landry best: “She’s an incredibly skilled comedian, a controlling presence onstage and a master of pacing and delivery.”
Multi- Award winning comedian ,Tommy Savitt, has won the prestigious 2007 Boston Comedy Festival, 2008 Seattle Comedy Competition, and was honored for the "Best In Comedy"category at the 2009 LA Comedy Awards. Tommy has been seen on WGN's "The Bob & Tom Show", SI Tv's "Funny is Funny", Comcast On Demand, Man Up Stand Up on Mav.Tv and on JLTV's " James and Sunda ". Tommy's comedy CD "Who Wants Me Now!" is one of the top requested on satellite radio. Tommy has dedicated this past decade to performing for our troops here and abroad.

Performance artist, Comedian, and Actor Tommy Savitt was born in New Jersey and bred in Brooklyn. Tommy performs an exhilarating brand of eclectic comedy rarely seen today. Tommy's unorthodox comedy routine envelops his audience and teleports them into a domain of hilarity and pure craftmanship. Tommy's journey to bring laughter to those that sacrifice for our country has taken him to airforce,army,and naval bases in Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay, Japan, South Korea, Bahrain, the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Curacao, Honduras, and Ecuador. Tommy has done it all - even performing at the United States Embassy in Belarus.

Alison Wolf is author of the new book, "The XX Factor: How Working Women Are Creating A New Society." The New York Times writes, “In short, with 'The XX Factor' Wolf accomplishes a rare feat: She combines real breadth with real depth. No matter how much you think you know about this hotly debated subject, and whether or not you agree with every one of Wolf’s ideas, you will come away from her book with new information — some merely amusing, but some foundation-shaking." In her introduction Professor Wolf writes, "For most of history, being female defined the limits of a woman's achievements. But now, women are successful careerists equal to men. In Norway, women legally must constitute a third of all boards; in America, women have gone from 3% of practising lawyers in 1970 to 40% today, and over half of all law students. These changes are revolutionary - but not universal: the 'sisterhood' of working women is deeply divided. Making enormous strides in the workplace are young, educated, full-time professionals who have put children on hold. But for a second group of women this is unattainable: instead, they work part-time, earn less, are concentrated in heavily feminised occupations like cleaning and gain income and self-worth from having children young. As these two groups move ever further apart, shared gender no longer automatically creates interests in common with other women. The XX Factor lifts the curtain on these social, cultural and economic schisms." Please subscribe to this show for free as a podcast on iTunes and Stitcher.
