Episode 250 EncoreWendi McLendon-Covey, Ken Jennings, Ages and Ages
This episode was originally taped at a live show on April 26, 2014
Actress Wendi McLendon-Covey tells us about working on ABC's The Goldbergs, we try to stump Jeopardy! winner Ken Jennings, and we hear music music from Portland choral pop band Ages and Ages.
A veteran of The Groundlings, Wendi first clawed her way into our hearts with the beautifully manicured fingernails of Detective Clementine Johnson on Reno 911! Since then she's had hilarious turns in Bridesmaids, Modern Family, The Single Mom's Club and as the charmingly overbearing Beverly on ABC's The Goldbergs.
Jennings is best known for holding the longest winning streak in Jeopardy! history, winning 74 games before being defeated by Nancy Zerg. (Damn you, Nancy Zerg!) Ken is now an author, and his latest book debunking parenting clichés, Because I Said So!, is now out in paperback.
Ages and Ages
Portland-based choral pop band Ages and Ages is a seven-piece ensemble of singers and musicians whose intricate harmonies, celebratory choral vocals, churchical piano and organ and exciting, interlocking rhythms set off aural fireworks.Their new album, Divisionary, is out this year.
