Going to Hell: Boyfriends Meeting Dads, Being the “Other Man,” Guest Sam Mercurio of The Chelsea Kills

On the fifth edition of Going to Hell on Olio.fm, guest-host Big Tom Lawler joins Brandi for a rousing discussion of..well, a lot of things. The duo starts with a Quickies segment covering the latest from Brandi’s OkCupid account, which then leads to the Eccentric Scoops segment. In this segment, the duo discuss a Barbie-obsessed woman who uses hypnotherapy to lower her IQ and celebrate the bra turning 100 (a few years ago), so Brandi gives Big Tom the 101 on unclasping bras.

Next, Brandi and Big Tom introduce the Contentious Topics segment, where the two discuss some of the most outrageous tweets that got people fired. During this week’s Sit on My Face segment, Brandi shares some stories of bringing her boyfriends home to meet her dad for the first time, and Tom shares what it’s like to be the other man.

Lastly, Brandi interviews Sam Mercurio of The Chelsea Kills for her First Date segment of Going to Hell. Mercurio discusses the band’s anticipation of its set at Fleeting Youth Record‘s unofficial SXSW showcase in Austin, Texas, which takes place March 13, with time and location TBA. Brandi also has silly rapid-fire questions for him, where you’ll find out what fictional character the garage-rock frontman fantasizes about.
