This is an instant Pews podcast classic for so many reasons, not least of which is that Elie Benhiyoun AND Tauny September return to the Alicia Lopez Pure Romance Studios!
This amazing episode goes from the ridiculous to the sublime and commences with Glenn serenading Tauny with her Joe Cocker “walk-up song”, honoring son Isaac on his 26th birthday, discussing the power of smiling. Tauny updates us on what she has been up to since moving to Ft. Lauderdale. Glenn wonders if a “My Corona” parody has been done yet to the Knack’s “My Sharonna”. We learn Elie’s “walk up song”, that he shaved his beard, that Tauny colored her hair, perhaps why people do things like that in moments of stress and why she and Cory compared Glenn to Hugh Hefner. The show takes a profound shift when Elie speaks about how close the pandemic has hit home for him, about the passing of his Aunt Simi in Paris and his relationship with her and about his approach to people in crisis. The Coach suggests what to say and not to say to someone who has lost a loved one. We hear about what Elie has been doing while Upstate in New York, projects he’s been working during the lockdown including the reading of a beautiful piece he wrote “The Six Feet Between Us” linked here, plus so much more! It ain’t going to be boring, that’s for sure.
