COLD OPEN

MALE INTERVIEW 1

Soo…my buddy got married. And…I ended up being the best man by default. And, of course, being the best man, having to make a speech, I decided to get really drunk ahead of time.

FEMALE INTERVIEW 1

Transcript for Episode 21: Liars & Legerdemain

COLD OPEN

Transcript for 20.5: Dear Leon 3

[Ambient noises and jazz drones and play throughout fade up. Someone handwriting a letter. A typewriter. A computer. The typewriter jumps to a new line, producing a DING noise. Drone music crescendos and then fades quickly. “Drive the Cold Winter Away” fades up].

NICA — KELLY MCCABE

Dear Leon,

Still no answer to my previous letters. It’s okay, I’m not sure I deserve one. I have been a really bad Ben Affleck lately. Like…(sighs)…like ‘Gigli’ bad.
