Empty Girlfriend
Surrender your sweet, gentle earbuds to the surprisingly bitting, yet disarmingly sweet, Rachele Friedland! This week's episode is a very intimate slumber-party-like conversation, just L.A. comedian Rachele & Haley in her L.A. apartment (since Mommy (Haley) & Daddy (Christie) can't see each other as much as they'd like due to their work schedules). Don't worry, Mommy & Daddy aren't getting a divorce. Rachele & Haley discuss divorce, expectations within relationships, when to say "I LOVE YOU AHHH I'M SORRY", and how to tell when you're being a BITCH or not -- it's a giggly good time (obviously channeling Christie's spirit energy). Enjoy the soothing sounds of the hilarious & charming, Rachele Friedland and follow her on Twitter at @Rachele_F and on instagram at @rachelefriedland WE LOVE TO LOVE LOVE!

I know we say this every week but this week is truly a special episode. This week we have the best comedy writer in Denver (according to Christie, so you know its true), Brad Galli! If you haven't heard of him it's because he hung up the mic over a year ago. In an attempt to get him back Empty Girlfriend sits down with Brad to talk about his break-up with comedy and what life looks like without the lights and sting of the stage. Please enjoy one of the funniest people in Denver, and god damn it Galli, come back! Check out Galli's tweets on the most un-beloved teams in the MLB on twitter @bradicalgalli. Enjoy little babies!

This week we bring you "one of the most mysterious men on the planet" as proclaimed by the Empty Girlfriends themselves. Very few things are certain about Zach Reinert, but what we do know is that he's a hilarious comedian from Omaha Nebraska, is now Denver-based, and that he's very loveable (despite the fact that he might also be a murderer). Zach's not used to talking about these kinds of things, so if you can hear uncomfort it will pierce your ears in this episode ♫ in the most delightful way ♫ Follow Zach on Twitter at @zachreinert03 & catch his shows!
