Ep 72 - Suicide awareness month with Special Guest Susan Pyles, Proud Momma of Brandon Pyles.

This show is dedicated to the spirit and bright light of Brandon Pyles. 

Over the weekend Hoss had to "Play Uncle" with Kellys son Rocky, and take him to a very important hockey tryout. Find out how he screwed up so badly, and hear the hilarious text conversation that caused the whole mess. 

The littlest Manno, Libby Lu had her first soccer game over the weekend. She definitely had the largest cheering squad and made her family so proud. 

Once in a while a segment on our show comes along and knocks us off our feet.  As was the case today with our guest, Susan Pyles. 6 years ago her middle son, Brandon took his own life. This beautiful woman took one of the most sour lemons life has to offer, and made something that resembles lemonade.  Her faith, and her heart, and her testimony is something everyone should have the privilege to hear. We were so thankful that she stopped by today to tell us about her son Brandon.

Ep. 71 - You will never complain about your job again once you hear about this guys "SHITTY" job....literally

Meet our guest today BEN!  Yes that's poop, and yes he probably has the grossest job ever, more on that in a minute...
Welcome back, fans! Kelly is soooo happy to have Hoss back in the co-host seat this week. Producer Stephanie just got back from working in Chicago this weekend and Hoss talks about his trip to New York last week. In addition to work, he got to meet Norman Reedus! Find out who was most excited to see this picture of him with Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead.

We also discussed the possibility of a Halloween show next month. With Kelly and Stephanie's aversion to scary stuff, it might end up being more 'Hocus Pocus' than 'Nightmare on Elm Street'.

We also talked about the total WTF moment for Corey Feldman on the Today show on Friday. Did you guys see this painful performance? Now Corey is sobbing in the media talking about how he's so hurt that everyone is being so critical of the appearance. Check out the clip below and let us know what you think of his performance of 'Go 4 it' on the Today Show:

Our special guests today were Ben and Julie Roberts! Ben works as an Operating Engineer for the Granite City Waste Water Treatment Plant... Which basically means he works in poop all day. We were on Facebook Live for this one so check out the replay or listen to hear all you ever wanted to know (and probably MORE than you ever wanted to know) about what happens when you flush.

Ben's even taken video of the "shitty" job!! Thanks, Ben! You're welcome, Internet.

We also talk about the 18-yr old girl who is suing her parents over childhood Facebook photos of her. Do you post embarrassing photos of your kids? Do you think she has a case? We can't make this stuff up, you guys!

Thank you guys so much for listening, we love love love you and we LOVE our sponsors! Thanks this week to:

Ep. 70 - Why some people choose not to have kids and the dumbest song about poop ever.

Hey there kids! Welcome to Episode 70 where we're joined by Darryn Yates from Riot Radio filling in for Hoss today and Jess is back to hang out!

And if you're wondering what that smell is in the studio today, its definitely not Kelly's van, though it might be her feet. Check out the photo below and listen for the whole story of the exploding milk jug in the Manno-mobile. Gross.

As we record this episode on 9/11, Kelly, Darryn and Stephanie recall where they were on that day in 2001 when the world changed for all Americans. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by those attacks!

On a lighter note, Kelly's girls make an appearance and chat with us about the craziest Poop song you've ever seen or heard. It can't be fully appreciated without the video, so enjoy the madness below:

Jess joins the party as we open the can of worms that is kids! Jess had posted an article that talks about the big reasons Millenials are choosing not to have children and, as luck would have it, we happen to know a few kid-free by choice folks! Both Jess and Stephanie are in their 30s, married, have no kids and plenty to say about their own reasons why and what bothers them the most when people ask about it. How do you feel about people choosing to live kid-free? Read the article,
9 Brutally real reasons why millennials refuse to have kids, and let us know what you think in the Kelly Manno Show Chat Group on Facebook!

Ep. 69 - Parents everywhere are losing their minds over water bottle flipping.

Kellys family took their annual trip to Six Flags over the weekend. This conversation had Kelly and Hoss getting nostalgic about their trips to 6 flags as kids.  Kelly, her mom, and Aunt Linda, even had time to re-create this old photo on the Log Flume. About 35 years between these 2 photos. Good thing Kelly finally kicked her bottle habit or this would be a very embarrassing photo. 

Everyone agreed that" The Screaming Eagle" is still an awesome roller coaster after all these years. Being 7 feet tall means Hoss can't ride very many of the coasters anymore, but he did have a chance to ride the X2 when he was in California. This is one of the sickest coasters we've ever seen, check it out below.

Hoss has been getting some dirty looks for wearing this Trump supporter look alike hat. No need to worry folks just a souvenir from his Prophets of Rage show over the weekend. 

The guy in the video below is solely responsible for every parent in America losing their damn minds lately. He started the sensation of water bottle flipping, which is about as simple as it sounds.  Kelly's pre-teen son Rocky stopped by the show to give us a lesson in flipping. 

Our resident psychic Lisa Pini stopped by the show today! We always have fun when she's around. She's also a dream interpreter.  Kelly and Producer Gary both had similar dreams about their Dads who have passed away. She interprets those and also covers the basics...dreams about falling, a cheating spouse, or showing up naked to school!  To get in touch with Lisa or book her for your own party you can email her at or call her at 315-796-6014.
Former Stanford student Brock Turner is a free man after serving ONLY 3 months in prison for the rape of an unconscious woman. The nation is in an uproar, protestors have set up camp outside his parents home in Ohio and show no signs of leaving anytime soon.  To see more photos and read the full update on this situation click here. 

As always, We LOVE our great sponsors and you should too.

Ep - 68 NFL player refuses to stand for the national anthem, plus we have a video of what might be the most crazy woman in the world.

Hey Kids! Kelly and her gang went to the Luke Bryan concert on Friday and, while the concert was great, we've discovered that staying up that late just isn't for us in the "late-30's" crowd anymore. As evidenced by the crabby end-of-the-night photo in the parking lot. Here's to plenty of beauty sleep for us all!

Next, Kelly, Hoss and Gary weigh in on a school sending a permission slip home for a child's participation in the Pledge of Allegiance (REALLY??) and Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers and his refusal to stand for the National Anthem at a game. Do you agree with his reasons or think its disrespectful as an American? This one gets a little heated so stand back folks!

We also welcomed Jen from Sacred Movement in St. Charles into the studio to tell us all about the belly dancing classes that Kelly has been taking!

Ladies, if you're looking for some female empowerment along with a great workout, this place is definitely for you! Beginner classes start up again in September so call to get in before it fills up! 314-398-8184 or visit

Jen also happens to be a long-time friend of Hoss' and we got to take a quick trip down memory lane to find out what Hoss was really like in high school!

And, uh, speaking of crazy... Who saw the video of this millionaire couple and the deranged chick beating herself up on surveillance? Hashtag richpeopleprobz.

And would you be mad if someone at your kid's school brought these cups to lunch? Its a pretty famous 'Mean Girls' movie line but some parents are saying its another way for kids to bully each other. Do you agree or do you think its just a cup and people are overreacting?

You can apparently get them at Walmart now, so if you feel like sitting alone, you can let your drinkwear do the talking. Just don't forget that on Wednesday's we wear pink.

Thanks as always for listening, you guys, and remember if you LIKE the show, SHARE the show!

We love love you all for listening and for supporting our supa-cool sponsors that let us have this much fun with you on the podcast every week for free!

Stay sassy, classy, and a bit smart-assy!
