This is just a small taste of the show overall, the bits and bobs that I found interesting, funny, insightful and relevant. To hear everything that happened, check out the podcast of today's show. However, if you're looking for a quick read along with random self inserts and my personal thoughts, you've come to the right place.

Call in Point:

(This is the broadstroke canvas on which I base my call, obviously these notes are going to be longer and more detailed.)

Now normally we sort of quietly slide into the hump day dreaming of the weekend that is so close yet so far away. It's a day where everything has fallen into place so it's fine but at the same time, it's sort of just there. Not today though, oh hell no, on this day we celebrated hard. Not only is January coming to an end (more on that below) but yesterday, Marris achieved an incredible feat. As I mentioned in my call, yesterday was the quarterly all iHeart station staff meeting. As usual, Angi Lucci was not nominated for Employee of the Quarter yet again because well, everyone hates her and everything is rigged. However, Marris was nominated (because he does 20 different jobs) and won again. According to him, he's only won once but Angi seems to think it's been like 30 times (she also has early onset.) For those that win Employee of the Quarter, they get a coin to operate the 10 foot tall gumball machine in the lobby. Within is a collection of red, black and white gumballs as well as a few gold ones. The normal colors are good for gift cards but the gold ones fetch the lucky recipient a trip for two to anywhere in the world. In the year that the gumball machine has existed, only one person had pulled a golden gumball thus far, which screamed it being rigged. Then yesterday, with 13 people getting coins, the first person to turn the crank ended up getting a golden gumball. The line continued down and show friend and KISS FM personality Kaelin also ended up pulling one as well. The crowd went wild and everyone assumed the luck stopped there. However, Marris was 13th up, turned the crank and boom, another golden gumball. That's right, our morning main man won a trip for two anywhere in the world (the video is on all our socials.) Now, Marris hasn't had a vacation in forever and ironically was just discussing with Angi where he would go last week if he could go anywhere. Obviously, there's a pressure to pick the right place so a choice hasn't been made yet but for now, Marris does have a short list and a longer one that is pending research. His shortlist currently includes Portugal, Spain and Brazil. On the longer list is the Galapagos Islands but there are some things to be considered. If the trip is an 8 day trip, he needs to consider how long the flight is, account for the jet lag and how long acclimation will take. Angi said all of it is worth it but don't bother with somewhere like Australia where you're essentially losing three days going to and from. Angi then proceeded to rattle off a list of the safest countries to travel to which included Canada, Switzerland, Norway and Ireland. Another list she offered dealt with countries with beautiful women like the Ukraine, Serbia, South Africa and others. Marris said he has yet to decide who he's taking with him outside of eliminating Syphilis for the trip and Angi then suggested we turn this trip into 90 Day Fiance because she is in dire need of entertainment.

Other Stuff from Today's Show:

Speaking of celebrating, January is done you bitches and you know what that means, Dry January is done as well. Well, that would mean something if the person writing these notes (it's me, hi) wasn't an alcoholic and the rest of the show also can't seem to keep from indulging as well. Marris' longest stint for a Dry January lasted three whole days which is still better than anything I've ever not attempted. Prison Tattoo actually did Dry January the full way through last year but failed (see: didn't bother) this year. As for Angi, she went three weeks last year but fell off the wagon when the reality that life sucks became too much to reason with. However, it is now the 31st so everyone can get litty kitty after midnight tonight and definitely should. With that in mind, Angi offered up some healthier drinks to indulge in in case you want to ease your way back onto the wagon. Hard seltzers are a good one as they are just fizzy water and alcohol. Red wine keeps you looking young apparently (in Angi's case, she looks twenty with the amount she drinks.) A Bloody Mary which Prison is not into and Angi feels even one is a bit too filling. Hot toddies were the last on the list but Marris prefers to have his tea in the morning and whiskey straight at night. This moved us into cocktail preference with Marris and Prison Tattoo both offering whiskey gingers as their go to. Angi, who had been looking for a change from drinking too much wine (is there ever really too much?) moved on to whiskey to curb things and realized that she loved whiskey just as much. She had to pull the brakes on that though when she came to the realization that brown liquor makes her nuts (more on that in a moment.) My go to is always Captain Morgan White (I can't do dark liquor anymore) and Pepsi as the sweeter taste balances well with a cup full of rum. Moving back to liquor types, brown liquors make Angi wild and she starts fights that she regrets hours later. Marris' antagonistic liquor is cognac so keep that away from him. While you're at it, don't offer Marris Captain Morgan Private Stock as well because he ripped the toilet seat off the toilet during his last adventure with it. So for those celebrating tonight, have your Gatorade ready next to the toilet and maybe put a blanket on the floor as well. I'd be joining you but I can't get too messy tonight, there's still two more shows left this week!

Onward we move from fun to responsibilities for the Daily Discussion Topic. Today's discussion centers around celebrity parents and their inability to actually parent. John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, George and Amal Clooney, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Alba, all of them have a parenting coach which is apparently another word for nanny but all hollywooded up. For some people who have never had a baby and don't have someone to give them proper advice, changing a diaper, breastfeeding and sleeping schedules are kind of hard. Usually they are only getting advice from other parents or their mothers but that's also old time advice and things are very different these days. Learning needs to be done on the fly and you must adapt your needs vs. the needs of a kid. For example, Angi didn't have family around when she had her daughter and she wishes she had them to talk her through things like sleep schedules. With this all in mind, Angi offered up the question to the roadies. Congrats, you're a parenting coach all of a sudden, what advice are you giving to parents whether it is a do or a don't. Things like children are absolutely rewarding but your life is no longer your own. Your time for selfishness is over and you are now living for someone else. Angi added that one of her advice pieces is to know that at times, your child will end up hating you. It may take years, perhaps longer if you have a teenage daughter, for them to come around and realize that fighting against you was silly. Marris said that if your kid is wilding out and being obnoxious, you need to take ownership of it and deal with it. If you're out in public or you take your kids to a restaurant, you need to deal with them. Like if your child is punching another kid in the head, make them stop. With this sound advice in place, we moved on to the Request Line and the roadies. Marcy said to choose your battles because not everything is worth a fight. Angi said when her daughter was young, redirection was smart. Pamela said acting out can be curbed with eye contact. Vitra said you should try to keep kids away from screens. Chris said once a child is on solid food, you should expose them to as many flavors as possible. Roy said to limit the word "yes." Aaron said be a parent and not their friend. Dee said to make sure you try and do a better job than your parents did. If you are looking for more roadie thoughts or have your own, hit up our Facebook group (Angi Taylor Show) and drop us a comment.

Finally, The Grammy's are Sunday night (no one cares) but no one is more enraged than Prison Tattoo who says they are rigged. Before giving us a list of artists who have never won a Grammy (and one that did to cap it,) Angi played a game of Did They or Didn't They Win with Marris and Prison Tattoo.

Fleetwood Mac: Marris said no, Prison Tattoo was unsure. - They have won 2.

Backstreet Boys: Marris said no, Prison Tattoo said no. - They haven't but have been nominated 8 times.

Guns N' Roses: Marris said yes, Prison Tattoo said yes. - They have not.

Nirvana: Marris said no, Prison Tattoo said yes. - They have won 1.

AC/DC: Marris said no, Prison Tattoo said no. They have won 1.

Here's a list of others who have never won and one that has won one:

The Beach Boys, Bob Marley, Diana Ross, JLO, Journey, Katy Perry, KIϟϟ, Lana Del Rey, N'SYNC, Queen, Rush, Sia (Marris was shocked by this, she's a nine time nominee and non winner,) Snoop Dogg, 2 Pac. Led Zeppelin has won once.

Request Wars 3.0

Current Champion: Marris (1x)

Angi's Song Choice: “Down Boys” by Warrant

Marris' Song Choice: "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC

Winner: Marris

10 O' Clock Toast:

Toastee: A Smart Hooters Waitress

A waitress at Hooters had to work on her birthday and so she wore a sash saying "Birthday Girl" and it ended up netting her an extra $500 in tips. Angi suggested all service workers from bartenders to street walkers should do the same so they can make a little extra scratch on their big day.
