The Queen of Quips takes a Seat at the Round Table: Part 2

EThis week we're discussing the Algonquin Round Table and the tragic love life of Dorothy Parker. Is she just that annoying Facebook friend who posts status updates like, "Sigh..." or "Rough day..." in a pathetic bid for attention, or was she a lonely, desperate woman who deserved better treatment by both her friends and the critics? Listen and decide for yourself!

The Queen of Quips takes a Seat at the Round Table: Part 1

EThis is Part 1 of a 4 part series on writer/humorist Dorothy Parker. In this episode you'll find out why: 1. How Dottie is connected to our last genius, Papa Hemingway, and why their "friendship" inspired a mean girl-style poem by the jackass. 2.Why without Dorothy Parker there is no awkward Bradley Cooper/Lady Gaga close-singing moment at the Oscars and 3. Why she refused to call her stepmother anything other than "the housekeeper" at the tender and sassy age of seven. And that's only in Part 1!

What's Papa-ing? Part 2

What's Papa-ing? Part 1

EThis week we take on the legacy of Ernest "Papa" Hemingway: the man, the myth, the misogynist. Of maybe just the misunderstood?? There is no doubt that Hemingway's place as one of America's greatest writers is secure, but we wanted to know more about his macho mythology and legacy of mental illness and suicide. How did his experiences feed his genius and how did they lead to his tragic end? Papa, can you hear me? I sort of hope not. We weren't always that nice!

Hello Dalí Part 2

EThis is Part 2 of a two part series on Salvador Dalí. If you haven't yet listened to Part 1, press pause and please do so! This episode explores Dalí's later years as he dabbles in fascism, American celebrity, and utterly bizarre "manifestations" that we believe inspired Gaga's meat dress! Dawn and Lee return to laugh and roll eyes at this sometimes hilarious, sometimes awful, and always outrageous figure of art history!

Hello Dalí: Part 1

EWelcome to Season 2 of Keep It Lit: Judging Genius. In this episode we're changing things up! While Season 1 focused on the art, in particular the art of storytelling, Season 2 will focus in the artists themselves. We're starting strong with possibly one of the most eccentric and problematic figures from the art world, the Surrealist painter Salvador Dalí. No matter your familiarity with Dalí, you're sure to have fun listening to this absolutely bizarre biography!
