The Last Jedi premieres tomorrow and Greg is excited to join the Nerd Herd and see it! Sarah, on the other hand, feels that she does not actually need to see any Star Wars movie, to know what the entire premise is about. Her synopsis is....troubling. And hilarious.

GUEST: STEVE HERNANDEZ. Sarah is on her way to a fancy 'rich-person' party and may be woefully unprepared. Greg walks her through his expert tips on how to blend in, in high society.

The wonderfully entertaining and informative people behind the Twitter account @PDXAlerts have remained a mystery for many years here in Portland. They have now broken their silence, but not their anonymity, by appearing on Funemployment Radio for their first interview ever! Jiles and Jeeves explain to us the origins of the account, how it all works, what some of their favorite tweets are and how they find a balance between being serious and finding the funny in what they report. It's incredibly intriguing and all an exclusive here on Funemployment Radio. Thanks @PDXALERTS!!

With all of the incredible feedback we've been receiving for the Portland Podcast Festival, there are always going to be some naysayers. The Willamette Week in Portland seemingly went out of their way to NOT mention Greg, Sarah, or Funemployment Radio. However, our good friend Jason Lamb of Minority Retort did receive some accolades, which leads to proclaim it Jason's Podcast Festival. Big thanks to Small Town Brewery, NYF's Mountain Ale, NYM's Iced Tea, Toko, Sweet Cannabis, Jayne, Guardian Games and Voodoo Doughnut. See you all tomorrow!

As the PDX Podcast Festival gets ever closer, all the work that Greg and Sarah have put in is starting to take it's toll on their bodies. Now Sarah may have to take a drastic step after a rubber band incident. Plus a ridiculous list from Google. Big thanks to SMALL TOWN BREWERY, NYF MOUNTAIN ALE, NYM ICED TEA and TOKO STAGE PRESENTED BY JAYNE.
