It’s time to fire up “The Banter Blender!” Joining Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) this week is journalist Jessica Ogilvie (twitter.com/jessicapauline) to discuss the most pressing topic of the week: Gwyneth Paltrow’s divorce from Chris Martin. We delve into it hardcore, and along the way, we take on Tinder, real maple syrup, and all sorts of other tangents. Plus, Jessica tells us about a story she’s broke in today’s “LA Weekly.”

“Banter” is back, but it’s a little different. After three amazing years, the irreplaceable Lisa Timmons has moved on, but fear not, the podcast will continue with guests every week. In the hot seat this time around is Ronnie Karam (@watch-what-crappens, trashtalktv.com) to help talk about all sorts of fun topics like… anti-gay laws in Arizona, Darren Sharper’s rape charges, Paula Deen’s return from racism, Woody Allen’s molestation controversy, and Justin Bieber.
Okay, maybe not the sunniest of topics, but we still managed to have fun. Come listen!!
This week on “Banter with Ben and Lisa,” Ben Mandelker (twitter.com/bsideblog) and Lisa Timmons (twitter.com/timmonslisa) bow down to Beyoncé. Pretty hurts, but this podcast doesn’t. We discuss Queen B’s amazing album stunt and contrast it with similar efforts by the likes of Lady Gaga. We also talk about Gaga’s recent duet with Christina Aguilera on “The Voice” before switching gears and taking on “Grand Theft Auto V.” Finally, things end on a peculiar note as Lisa helps Ben learn German. It’s all very musical, violent, and educational. Come listen!

It’s another week of extreme banter as Lisa Timmons (idolator.com) and Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) tackle all sorts of random pop culture topics. This time around, Ben talks about his close encounters with two-thirds of the Jonas Brothers and Steven Tyler. Then Lisa shares her experiences at the super fun dance party, Bootie LA.

This week on “Banter with Ben and Lisa,” Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) and Lisa Timmons (@timmonslisa) talk extensively about such pop culture failures as Lindsay Lohan, Tara Reid, and Hoku.

Time for another episode of Banter with Ben and Lisa! This week, Ben Mandelker (bsideblog.com) and Lisa Timmons (wherelisalives.com) take on the spawn of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West (who was still unnamed at press time).

Along the way, there’s plenty of sidetracking about Japanese ghosts and druggie alligators, naturally. Come listen!
