The JV Club with Janet Varney (general)

Calling all giant-cross-necklace owners and cross-legged sitters! If you’ve been waiting for a very niche episode of The JV Club made just for you, this episode with the wonderful Carrie Poppy (Host of the podcasts "Oh No Ross & Carrie" and "Hidden Mickeys") is it.

Everyone else: never fear! There’s also plenty of whale-watching-out-for, summer camp revelations, and everyone’s favorite, pig dressage.

Hosted by Janet Varney.

Get ready to cut some alarm wires, escape your apartment and sneak on over for some teenage tales of literature devouring, lakeside sulking, and blue hair dying with musician Vera Sola, and find out who King Solomon was (no, not that King Solomon) and the mysterious fate that befell him.

Hosted by Janet Varney.

This special episode recorded live at SF Sketchfest has a little something for everyone. Thrills! (Pneumatic high school theatre orchestra pits!) Chills! (Is Aparna a biter?) Spills! (Okay, maybe no spills. But aren’t you glad there weren’t any wet messes to mop up?). Join JV and marvelous guests Scott Adsit, Aparna Nancherla and musician/dreamboat Matt Nathanson for a double M.A.S.H. game unexpectedly featuring worms.

Hosted by Janet Varney.

It’s a foamy almond milk latte of an episode with the delightful Alicia Witt, who talks Nashville, Bill Shakes, and the simple elegance of a tv show title when it’s as self-explanatory as “That’s Incredible!”

To celebrate the 300th episode of The JV Club, JV is joined by Say Hi’s Eric Elbogen! Eric, of course, is the reason for the very existence of The JV Club’s theme song, “Back Before We Were Brittle!” Before some excessive mutual fawning (don’t worry- it’s at the VERY END), Eric and JV talk living rooms, first guitars, and the indignities of class team presentations in this special 300th Episode Non-Boy-of-Summer!
