36. Interview w/ Rita Rae Roxx: Queen of 80s rock 'n' roll and conquerer of rockstars

Rita Rae Roxx invented "it girl" behavior. Have you ever been to a concert and seen the cool, pretty girl in one-of-a-kind clothing who the artists can't take their eyes off of? That was and is Rita. Well, at the beginning of her night -- before she got invited backstage, and then back to the hotel, duh. As a teen in Omaha, she made it her life's mission to go to every concert she could and hang out (and sometimes more *wink*) with rockstars. For decades, Rita has built relationships with rockstars that wrote classics, and she has the stories and pictures to back it up. Rita and I met on our gameshow, and I knew I needed her to come on Lit Hein and tell her juicy and hilarious stories. Check out her book, Once Upon a Rockstar, but reach out to me or Rita to buy a copy directly from her! Support your local rock goddess ;)

32. morning debrief: bottle service at The Box and getting home at 10 a.m.

This episode was recorded right after my bestie girl Taylor and I woke up from one of the craziest nights (and mornings) of our lives. Although we were in no condition to read classic literature or operate heavy machinery, we needed to update the Lit Hein listeners on our night. The caveat is that I messed up the audio... we can't be pretty, funny, smart AND good at AV?! So bear in mind that the quality is 7/10 but the content is 100000/10. The night before NYE, Taylor and I hit the town with one goal: go to The Box -- a notorious s*x club in NYC famous for exclusivity and debaucherous live performances. Before that, we gallivanted around town, collecting funny stories like horcruxes, all to bring back to the Heinous Listeners. Enjoy--and don't tell our parents!

I'm sorry that I've been sooooo mysterious lately. Like where even *am* I? That's because I was in the middle of moving to New Yawk baBY. This episode is strictly business, okay?! I have a lot of 'splaining to do, and it's all laid out for you. In this episode, I detail EVERYTHING about the move. From what spawned the move, to how I found the apartment, to physically moving my things, to how I picked my neighborhood, how much my rent costs, how I'm furnishing the place, EVERYTHING. I talk about my biggest misconceptions about NYC and what has surprised me the most, good and bad. I've been here for approx. 3 weeks, so take all of this with a grain of salt. This is just *my* experience in the short time I've been here. Although this episode is strictly administrative, it's crucial to set the context for the episodes that follow it.
