Ep 97 - The Netflix hit "13 Reasons" has everyone talking. If you have a teenager you want to listen to this show.

Listen to "Ep 97 - The Netflix show "13 reasons" has EVERYONE talking, and some mental heath experts fuming." on Spreaker.

Today Kelly and Hoss are joined by family therapist Kristina Kersting, and social worker Dave Lewis. They are here to help us dissect the new hit show "13 Reasons".

13 Reasons is the new new Netflix series that follows the weeks and months leading up to the suicide of a teenage girl, Hannah Baker. Instead of leaving behind a note, she leaves behind 13 tapes, each one dedicated to a different person she feels was instrumental in her decision to kill herself. 

This show has caused a great divide among mental health experts. Some are fuming and claiming the show glamorizes suicide. While others say it give a raw, hard look at the ugly truth behind the decision to take your own life.

Ep. 96 - Everything you didn't want to know about how Bruce becomes Caitlyn

Welcome back! Now that the cow drama is behind us, we're looking forward to getting back to our regularly scheduled jack-assery. 

First up, Kelly and Jimmy surprised their son Rocky this weekend with a trip to the Blues game and an opportunity to meet his favorite player, Brett Hull! 

He even autographed a jersey for him that Kelly's going to frame. What a cool guy!

Next up, it might be the only time I've seen Hoss' face go full-on green. We talked about how Bruce Jenner went through with gender reassignment surgery to become permanently Caitlyn. Us, being the curious folks we are, had to google what that surgery entails. You'll have to listen for our reactions but lets suffice to say its uhm... complicated. 

Would you ruin a friendship over $100K? We heard this story about a guy who got gipped out of a jackpot when he let his friend pull the lever on a slot machine and it hit bank. What would it take for you to turn on a friend? 

Lastly, you have to check out our latest prank video. This was so much fun! Kelly got dressed up as the Hamburgler and we drive around to local unsuspecting McDonald's to run through their drive through and freak out the staff. Comedy gold, people! You'll definitely want to share this one! Oh, and there MAYYYYY be a prize in it for you if you do. Details to come!!

You know the deal by now - If you LIKE the show, SHARE the show! Our listeners are the best ever and so are our super cool sponsors! Check them out and let them know Kelly Manno sent you!

Ep. 95 - The whole story of the cow incident and indecent things growing in the Manno front yard

Hope you're wearing your fun-derwear this week, kids, because we were back again LIVE on a Wednesday (?) night! Look, its been a crazy weekend and we just couldn't get it together to do a show on Monday. You'll forgive us, right? We got some cows saved so we're cool, yeah?

I swear we're going to get you the whole story about this but first, get the results of our Kelly Manno Show March Madness bracket! You'll never guess who won... Also, are you a take-out tipper? We're a little mixed on whether you should tip on the bill of a take-out order, and how much. Hoss says no because they're bringing your food or filling drinks, etc., but we got some comments that say definitely yes! Do you leave a tip if you're just picking up? Should you tip? Let us know what you think!

Ok here it is, people. Unless you were living under a rock this weekend, you heard about the six cows that got loose from the slaughterhouse truck last week in North St. Louis County. If you're a fan of our show, then you might also know that our beloved Kelly Manno heard about this on the news and immediately jumped in her minivan, donned her best T-Rex costume and lobbied harder than anyone to save these cows who ran for their lives. I won't go into specifics here, so you have to listen to get the full story. Suffice it to say that even with the most fervent of roadblocks at every turn and after hours and days of ups and downs, these valiant creatures will live out their days at a sanctuary farm thanks, in large part, to the awesome listeners of the Kelly Manno Show.

Really, all credit should go to The Gentle Barn who swooped in at the last minute to save the day. We love them and we'd love it even more if you checked them out and gave a donation to help their operation. There are good people in this world!

Lastly, Kelly's getting a little concerned that the tree growing in her front yard is starting to look a bit... inappropriate? Check out the photo and let us know if you think the tree looks like lady-parts.

They can't fill the hole because there's a family of, of all things, woodpeckers living in there. Kelly's worried that her neighborhood association is going to be upset about the tree, but you can't displace the woodpeckers! What's one to do with an indecent tree??

Ep. 94 - Cuss words alert! That night Hoss almost went to jail - Plus, you'll never think of the name 'Nanette' the same way again...

I know we said we probably wouldn't have a show this week, but this awesome thing happened over the weekend... so we do a show. And its a good one, kids! Lucky you! Right now, let's just say some things went down at a charity trivia night and we ALMOST had to call Producer Stephanie to bail Hoss out of jail. More on that in a minute...

But first, get an update on the Kelly Manno Show March Madness brackets - you'll never guess who's doing surprisingly well having only selected teams based on colors. Also, find out when we'll have an interview with the lady who crashed her car because she saw a Sasquatch in her rear-view mirror. We're putting Jimmy's show-producer skills to the test to track her down and get her on the show. You won't want to miss that one!

And if you are in the generation that grew up with Eminem on the radio you've heard plenty about 'Hailie Jade' in his songs. Well, little Hailie is all grow'd up and has an instagram account now. Check it out! Looks like she turned out relatively normal - hooray!

Next, we get into the reason you're all here today... we'll just call it 'the trivia night incident'. I don't want to give too much away. You really do have to listen to get the whole story with all the details (PARENTAL WARNING: We cuss here. A lot.), There was ultimately no violence but let's just say that trying to do 'passive aggressive' to Kelly doesn't work and she WILL stick up for herself when necessary. Tune in to get the details! We're just glad Hoss didn't have to turn green and rip his shirt...

Lastly, we tried to calm it down by talking about Brad's poor wife who got fired from Cracker Barrel after 11 years of service. Oh, you didn't hear about Brad's wife? Who's Brad? Why do we care that his wife got fired? All great questions. Sometimes the internet does awesome things for people in hilarious fashion. And sometimes we're totally immature and take things like Brad's poor wife's name to a whole 'nother place. You'll never think of the name 'Nanette' the same way again!

Hey, remember if you LIKE the show, SHARE the show! Thank you so much for listening!

And thank you to our awesome sponsors!

Ep 93 - St Louis Blues fan favorite CAM JANSSEN is here!!!

Professional NHL hockey player, and St. Louis Blues fan-favorite Cam Janssen joins the show today!

But first.... RIP Chuck Berry

A legend in the Rock 'n Roll world and St. Louis hometown favorite Chuck Berry died this weekend at 90 years old. We talk about the effect he had on music, other artists in the industry and even his influence on today's music scene. Not to mention ways that Kelly can get to his memorial service to be the paparazzi for all the huge celebrities that will no-doubt attend. The Gods of Rock gained another angel!

How big of a "Hoosier" is Kelly? That's a loaded question but it was brought up by a friend she picked up over the weekend who told her "honking" for someone in a driveway is a hoosier-move. She says that with today's technology, the proper etiquette is to text someone that you've arrived.

But you know what they say... you can't teach an old hoosier new tricks. Kelly's gonna keep honking!

Cam Janssen is one of the few people in this world that can pull off being bat-shit crazy and incredibly charming at the same time. He beats the shit out of people for a living but you'll have a hard time finding any enemies of his because he's literally nice to everyone. 

We got to sit down and talk one-on-one about his career, growing up a hockey player, and of course Kelly's son Rocky got in on the action, too, asking Cam who would win in a fight... him or the Blues' current enforcer Ryan Reaves? To find out the answer you'll have to listen to the show.

Kelly also mentioned her favorite Cam moment of all time. Goalies are usually very protected and "untouchable" in hockey. But let's just say Price was in the wrong place at the wrong time. The rest was pure mayhem.
