ERICA REID (@drunkmonkeyshow) and STEPHEN WINCHELL (@SAWinchell) rock n’ roll and shimmy n’ shake their way onto the PopFury podcast. They talk about the top 20 wedding reception songs, Stephen’s love for Motern Media, the other Erica Reids in the world, a chicken named Strawberry, the Ruth Bader Ginsberg Preying Mantis and Erica’s surgery for hyperhidrosis (AKA “the Reid”)!


0:00 Intro

1:05 Erica is celebrating her 10-year wedding anniversary this summer. She insists she never fights with her husband. They spent a previous anniversary walking around Windsor, Canada. Stephen recalls his own romantic gestures.

“Oh you walked here? Do you want me to give you a ride back to your Bed & Breakfast?”

7:35 Sammy runs down the top 20 wedding reception dance songs. Erica is the Eddie Haskell of wedding officiants. Stephen shares what songs he’d play at his wedding.

13:50 We discuss music that doesn’t age well. Erica talks about her experiences with She’s Crafty, a Beastie Boys cover band.

17:45 The business model of Motern Media incenses Sammy.

“I know a lot about the other Erica Reids in the world because I get all of their e-mail…”

22:30 Sammy found the wrong Erica Reid online. Erica often gets all the other Ericas’ e-mails!

28:35 A chicken named Strawberry watched animal videos while in recovery from surgery. Erica’s neighbor makes Catnip videos. We share what gets us through our own recovery own process.

OH. MY. GOD. That is the best thing I’ve ever heard. A chicken?! Watching TV?!?! COME ON!”
