BANTER WITH BEN AND LISA: Ep. 39 – Dinner With Chad Ochocinco! Also, Cash Cab Winner Revealed

We got a big ol’ story on this week’s Banter with Ben and Lisa. The long and the short of it is that I had a spontaneous dinner with football superstar Chad Ochocinco (née Johnson) in Beverly Hills. What’s Chad like? How did it happen? It’s all in the podcast. Plus, Lisa and I chat about Fred Willard’s recent arrest and The Dark Knight. Somehow, Sade enters the mix (as does Thor).

Oh, and for those who entered into the Cash Cab prize giveaway, the winner is revealed in the podcast! Take a listen!

Cash Cab Winner Revealed!

Hi all!

About ten days ago, I posted a contest where one lucky winner chosen at random would receive $50 and other assorted goodies, courtesy of Cash Cab. I was going to announce the results on Banter with Ben and Lisa, but then Whitney Houston died, and the world as we know it changed. Actually, it’s more like Lisa and I weren’t able to coordinate our schedules to do another podcast, and now I’m on a flight to Paris (oui oui!). So rather than draw this out another two weeks, I’ve decided to announce the winner here.

Results after the jump…
