On Episode 18, the crew leads off with a quick LOL Correspondent’s Dinner where Jaime does some light roasting of Rachel, Frank and Juan Bago. This leads to a conversation about the reaction to Michelle Wolf’s performance at the actual White House Correspondent’s Dinner and whether she went too far with her jokes. The crew also talks about #oldheadshotday where all of social media decided to dust off their early headshots and post them on Instagram. Rachel explains the subtle changes she can notice in each of her headshots through the years and Frank reveals the bombshell that Juan Bago used to model back in the day. Rachel and Jaime also recap how it felt having the first Room 28 Comedy rehearsal since Bago left the group. On this week’s “Bochinche Bites”, Jaime breaks down the epic Sprint-T-MOBILE merger, talks about 7-Eleven’s plan to get rid of loiterers, and explains why Apple’s Siri has such a dirty mouth.
“Frankspiracy News” Frank talks about how Chinese companies are picking their employees brains with mind reading devices. Bago, Rachel and Jaime play a game called “Spoken Word Up!” where they have to come up with closing lines to special guest Flaco Navaja’s spoken word poetry. The winner of this competition receives two tickets to Flaco’s upcoming show, “Evolution of a Sonero,” playing at the Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre May 10th-12th. The crew interviews Sandra Lilley of NBC LATINO about her career in journalism, her favorite stories she has covered, advice for up and coming journalists, and the future of news in general. Jaime also tries his best to get an invitation to become a new member of her book club.
