MIC LIFE: Funemployment duo Greg and Sarah. BY WW EDITORIAL STAFF | 503-243-2122
[November 25th, 2009]

DRUNK DIAL: Two employees fired in KUFO’s Radio Black Friday last month have bounced back faster than even they expected. Two weeks ago, former Rick Emerson Show staffers Sarah X. Dylan and Greg Nibler each cracked open a can of Mickeys and debuted their new drinking/talking project Funemployment Radio (, a free, daily podcast featuring everything from live karaoke and bitching about their lack of health insurance to an interview with Meatloaf. By Monday, Nov. 23, it had reached the top 20 on iTunes Comedy audio podcasts—beating out more than 6,000 other comedy podcasts on the site. The duo seem as surprised as anybody when it comes to the quick recognition of their boozy—still unpaid—efforts. “I think it’s the name that initially gets [people] interested, and once we get them to listen they enjoy it,” says Dylan. “Greg and I are making the most of what should be a depressing situation. I think people want to know that it’s not the end of the world if you lose your job.”


  1. There is pizza at the door if you answer it.

  2. Awesome. Just heard show #14 and subscribed to you on iTunes. Any chance you could talk about the equipment you use to do the show? 2 friends and I are thinking about kicking off a podcast in early 2010 and we're trying to find good equipment. I love the chemistry you two have on air. And yes, Steel Reserve tastes like ass. Try Olde English 800 the next time you can't find Mickey's. I always found it tastier than Mickey's.

  3. As a homebrewer in beertopia (the northwest) I just puked in my mouth a bit at the sight of 'Olde English 800' and 'tastier' in reference to eachother. Sarah ... if you'd like to taste a beer that is deserving of those words let me know. I'll get you a sampler from the wall o' beer.
