Boston Radio Station, Gag Order, Gets Weird New Intern: Me

Readers, I've been absent from blog posts in the last week and for that I apologize. But, I have news and a new sort-of job and a new way to ball hard on a budget without a case of the morning afters so, you know, keep reading words.

Through a friend of a friend with a friend, I managed to rustle up a new internship to fill my funemloyment time. The gig is pretty straightforward, contributing social media for a start-up internet radio show while we try to get picked up by a larger, more money filled entity. IT RULES.

The first day I showed up for my interview the producers sat me down on the couch in the tiny 16th floor office of the Pru and there I was, part of the show, in the middle of the mess and making a mess mostly but I think I did alright cause they asked me back.

Last week we made fun of Floridians, Canada, Manti Te'o, had a rapper from Cleveland swing through one day, a motivational speaker the next and watched a girl suck her own tampon dry (google Giovanni Plowman if you're brave. VERY NSFW) all live on the air. I can't get enough.

For those working 9-5, this is just the sort of pick-me-up I always needed around 2:30-3 o'clock  working in an office and it'll keep you smiling all the way to Happy Hour (the most irreverent segment on the show).   It's a great little mix of news and humor that always toes the line of appropriateness. Pop on the live stream, throw in an earbud and giggle secretly to yourself while  doing data entry and your co-workers start saving up for Kevlar vests.

Give the show a shot, if you like it tell your friends and everyone you can, it'd be huge for us. In return I'll do my best to be as ridiculous as possible on Tuesdays, Thursday and Friday when I'll be in on the show. Follow along, it'll be fun.

Bonus: Ball out on a Budget and never have a hangover again with The Last Round. It's a bold statement, I know, and I was skeptical too when asked to plug Gag Order's sponsor on twitter but this stuff works. Here's the deal, it's a green-tea based dietary supplement that looks like a 5 hour energy, and tastes about the same but less sugary. If you have one right before bed after a night out-NO HANGOVER! I've tried this thing four times now since last Tuesday and have yet to feel like death even though I clearly deserved to based on my bar habits.  I don't know how the thing works, but it's supposed to help scrub your system of alcohol while you're busy passed out in your pants and shoes with the lights on. Wake up and not feel crappy, great.

We do a promotion with the sponsor through the radio station so anyone who's curious, or drunk enough to give it a shot can do so without paying full price. If you follow the link above and use the promo code: gagorder25 for 25% percent off your total purchase. If you're not that curious, find me one night for a drink. I keep one on my nightstand now for emergencies and some extras around the apartment for whenever the mood strikes.
