BANTER WITH BEN AND LISA: Ep 41 – Vivica A. Fox, Jerseylicious, and Ochocinco

Banter with Ben and Lisa is back from the Olympics and ready to talk about the most pressing issue of the day: Vivica A. Fox. Yes, Lisa Timmons and I tackle Vivica’s recent “Jerseylicious” hosting gig — not to mention her work alongside Faye Dunaway on “The Starlet.” I also grapple with Chad Ochocinco’s recent fall from grace, but luckily there’s enough discussion of Sade and Thor to keep my spirits high. Also in the mix: Snookie’s baby, “Cocktail,” and Lance Armstrong. We’re all over the map in the best kind of way!

In other news, I left my good microphone at home; so apologies for mediocre sound quality.

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!
