Megan Neuringer is a super funny person who you may recognize from TV, movies, and performing at the UCB Theatre in NY & LA. Megan & Jake chat about the dangers of having bed bugs, having fun with a crude Vine commenter, rave culture in NY, and why it was brutal for Megan when she was coming up in the UCB NY comedy scene. They also talk about a young gentleman’s love letter/Frozen parody, the funkiest Lord’s Prayer, and the Church of Satan. Check out all the videos from today’s episode over at youtube.com/TheFogelnestFiles! Jake will be a guest on a LIVE taping of How Was Your Week with Julie Klausner on Sunday, June 1st at The Bell House in Brooklyn, New York. Get tickets at the www.thebellhouseny.com!

Great episode. Megan is indeed pretty awesome. Although I hate (and this is not meant to be a criticism of her at all) that she feels like she has to be secretive about her age, to the point that it comes up multiple times in this episode.

The Fogelnest Files is a place where the phrase "my friend Dogboner on Twitter" is not meant to be snarky or sarcastic. It ACTUALLY MEANS you have a friend, whom you like, named Dogboner who shares funny stuff on the Internet. Yes. <3

Also, I've always found the kind of "kinder, gentler" version of Christianity that was marketed in the 60s and 70s really interesting. Originally, the term "Jesus Freak" meant a big ol' hippie, peace-and-love type who was also into Christianity. There was a whole host of "____ Freak" subsets of Hippie culture. Weirdos! Now "Jesus Freak" kind of has the connotation of an asshole Christian Right, Pat Robertson-type. Way less interesting and not at all pleasant. I could get down with some of those funky nuns.

Finally, I give Pitchfork reviewers and any AV Club list that puts this podcast in the "Rest" section a 2.7/10.

When Jake was telling his flea story I kept imagining him talking about Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers

Great episode, loved it! I enjoyed the analysis of the Frozen parody (I'm dying to know what Jake makes of IceJJFish, who is so much worse).

Anton LaVey was a revelation. I've heard of him, but never seen him. I knew some Satanists in college and was invited to an orgie, but no. Not for me. Anyway, they weren't nearly as clever as LaVey. Would you go to a LaVey orgie? Would Pyne?

Song for the Stupid Raver Shithead was great. Unlistenable but great. I loved it when Meagan said she's listened to music like that. So have I, hell I make music like that!
