The moon hits the sky. In wanders a skirt with mean eyes and a nastier grin. But this is no ordinary dame. This is a mankiller in search of one thing. A man. The Now Conspirer.
But he’s not at the drive-in. He’s not sulking about the local picture show. This mysterious minister of mystery is guest hosting a podcast in an undisclosed location, known only as…the Internet, California.
He enters the Now Conspiring studios and overturns a picture of regular podcast host, Jon Negroni.
Shoulda got a house call for that sore throat of his, the Now Conspirers thinks quietly to himself, shaking it off with another cigarette wrapped in popped corn. With Negroni sick, I’ll have to do the trick.
But that’s the thing about showing up on a podcast as unannounced as you are unwelcome. You’re a bad idea chock full of worse ones, and even a little trouble. But you’ve got a show to run. Trouble? Well, trouble is your mistress.
After all, you’re the Now Conspirer.
INQUIRY OF THE WEEK: What is your favorite movie conspiracy?
Normally, this would be the part where regular podcast host Jon Negroni asks for your thoughts, as if they’re dangling from your skull, ready to pounce like a cat outta milk and a rat outta luck. He’d shoot you a sales pitch about leaving a review of the podcast on iTunes and/or Stitcher, even mentioning that you can download and subscribe for weekly episodes. A bird flies high, singin’ for fans of the podcast to send their notes to a Twitter account whispered only as @NowConspiring.
But the Now Conspirer is no door-to-door Internet salesman. He’s a man outta leads. Outta time. And outta smokes.
Enjoy the show, and please know that if this is your first time listening to the podcast…then you’re welcome.
The Now Conspirer.
