episode 64: Garfunkel & Oates' The Loophole

This week, host Jesse David Fox sits down with the dynamic duo behind Garfunkel and Oates: Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci! The actors and comedy singer-songwriters first came together to write and record music as a result of the Writer's Guild of America strike of 2008. Since then the pair have been prolific; they have three studio albums: All Over Your Face, Slippery When Moist, Secretions, had their own TV show in 2013 self-titled Garfunkel and Oates, and have written numerous songs for TV and film.

In this week's episode, the three dissect the musical duo's viral song The Loophole, discuss the rollercoaster ride that is writing songs on spec, and talk about writing the songs for Michelle Obama's Netflix kid show, Waffles + Mochi.

You can watch Garfunkel and Oates's music videos on their Youtube channel, Garfunkel and Oates, and stream their albums wherever you stream music. You can stream Waffles + Mochi on Netflix.
