Description

Nobody Cares is a podcast hosted by writer and person Anne T. Donahue (who totally cares, by the way). Each week, Anne is joined by a guest who shares something they're passionate about despite no one else feeling the same, and the two go down the rabbit hole of why, how, whom, and many other specifics. No topic is too small, too big, or too trivial, and by the end of their half-hour chat, it's safe to assume that regardless of how you felt going into it, you'll suddenly find yourself caring too.

For the season finale of Nobody Cares (Except For Me), Anne is joined by Sage Paul, fashion designer and founder of Indigenous Fashion Week. What do they talk about? Everything. (Literally everything.) Figure skating. The Hunger Games. Childhood. All of it! It's the most appropriate end to an incredible season, and not just because it took them six full months to schedule a date to hang out and chat. (It did. It really did. They're busy!)   You can follow Sage on Instagram and Twitter.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Rah-rah-Rasputin! Russia's greatest love machine! Of course, we all know the song, but few know as much about the man himself as writer, author, and comedian Sara Benincasa. Fortunately, she shares her wisdom about what made Rasputin so appealing, so terrifying, and why we still talk about him today. Plus, thoughts and feelings about crystals! Relationships! And a whole lot more.   You can follow Sara on Twitter and Instagram. And you can and should buy all of her books.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Do you like podcasts? Terrific! Because you're listening to one. Also, because Arkells' Max Kerman could talk about how much he loves them forever, and certainly tries to when Anne's not interrupting him to talk about how she loves them even more. Podcasts! Certainly something that exists.   You can follow Max and the Arkells on Instagram and on Twitter.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
You know what they say: the uglier the better -- and ironically, we're talking about beauty products! Join writers, editors, and hosts of the Breaking Beauty podcast Jill Dunn and Carlene Higgins as they fill Anne in on their favourite go-tos with the most questionable packaging. (And perhaps unsurprisingly, Anne would buy all of them based on the aesthetic alone.)   Subscribe to the Breaking Beauty podcast here.   Also, if you need a visual of the ugly packaging (yet still remarkable products) take a look!  9.

DO YOU SMELL WHAT THE ROCK IS COOKING? This is a great question independently, but it is even better when writer, comedian, DJ, and co-creator of Toronto's Boosie Fade Jordan Sowunmi uses it in conversation with Anne about his love of WWF. Join them as they discuss The Rock, Steve Austin, the merits of wrestling and also the downfalls. Plus, obviously (very obviously) much, much more. IT DOESN'T MATTER. Just kidding, it does.   You can follow Jordan on Twitter and Instagram.    See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
It's time to boldly go where no one has gone before: join Anne as she welcomes Mike On Much host Mike Veerman who has a lot to say about Star Trek (specifically TNG). Listen as they get way too specific about certain episodes and talk about the parallels between TNG and real life. Also: remember Barclay? They do. He was the worst.   You can follow Mike on Instagram -- both personally and the Mike On Much official account.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Actor Lauren Collins cares about something many of you have likely never thought about: her skin. Join her as she explains to Anne why she's obsessed, how her complex was born, and why navigating the trials and tribulations of problem skin on television wasn't exactly a walk in the park.   You can follow Lauren on Twitter and Instagram.    See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Currently, comedian Celeste Yim is living in New York, attending grad school. But before that, she was just like all other aspiring academics: heavily obsessed with filmschool.org. Obviously, Anne hadn't heard of it before. So listen in while Celeste explains why being a fly on the film school wall gets so addictive, why academia is a world unto itself, and how voyeurism can quickly evolve into straight-up empathy. Also: more, because when does this podcast ever stay on topic? You can follow Celeste Twitter and Instagram, or you can check out her official website.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
There ain't no party like an S Club party, and Sara Koonar, co-founder of Platform Media, knows this all too well. Hang out while she tells Anne about aspiring to be Tina, about the importance of representation in pop culture, and about bucket hats and middle school. Just remember to thank them both when this episode inspires a long-overdue S Club 7 reunion.    You can follow Sara on Twitter and Instagram.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Every so often, a podcast spawns magic. And frankly, magic is the only word to describe writer Sarah Hagi's obsession with Garfield fan art, a strange, confusing, disturbing, and bananas thing that is much bigger than Anne could possibly be ready for. Join them both as they delve into a world so many of us had no idea existed or wanted to go to. And don't be surprised if your relationship with the cartoon cat changes forever.  You can follow Sarah on Twitter.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
It's true: a lot of people care about basketball. But to be honest, Anne doesn't at all and Cadence Weapon does a lot. Which is why he sits down to talk to her about why he loves it, how it's a metaphor for bigger things, and why it's always been a big part of his life. Also, apologies for all Raptors references: at one point, we were all so hopeful.   You can follow Cadence Weapon on Twitter and Instagram, and catch his tour dates here.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
If you have a special place in your heart for documentary filmmaking, vulnerability, and talent, turn up the volume and cry: AGNES VARDA is here. (Well, sort of.) Join cléo founder and TIFF and Miami Film Festival programmer Kiva Reardon who sits down with Anne to explain why Agnes Varda means so much, why her work matters more than ever, and what it was like to sit in the filmmaker's living room and talk about feelings. (Spoiler: amazing. It was amazing.)   You can follow Kiva on Twitter and Instagram.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Some of us watch reality television, others (hello) have memorized entire seasons of The Great British Bake Off. But comedian, actor, writer, and Beaverton co-host Miguel Rivas takes solace in YouTube cooking videos which he can (and will) not apologize for. Join he and Anne while they talk cooking, family, and earnestness. Even though Anne isn't always partial to two of those three.    You can follow Miguel on Twitter and Instagram, and make sure to attend the next Rapp Battlez when/if you're in Toronto.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
You know what's cooler than a million dollars? Listening to writer Rachel Davies explain why she's obsessed with The Social Network. So while you can't crank up the (best movie) soundtrack (ever) while listening to her opinions on Mark Zuckerberg, Aaron Sorkin, and Rooney Mara, you can sleep soundly knowing that you're not alone: it really is one of the most comforting films to watch and re-watch during times of stress and strife.   You can follow Rachel on Twitter and on Instagram, or you can head to her website.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Heartbreakingly, this podcast hasn't been executive produced by Dick Wolf, but don't let that small setback deter you. This week, writer and Drunk Feminist Film's Amil Niazi joins Anne to talk about Law and Order: SVU and the world it created for true crime fanatics. Plus: the best episodes, the worst, why it's a source of comfort despite being inherently upsetting, and why under no circumstances does anyone care about Olivia's son.   You can follow Amil on Twitter and if you're lucky, on Instagram.    See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Crop circles, aliens, the Illuminati -- one of these subjects is boring and comedian, actor, and improviser Sarah Hillier doesn't bring it to the table. But the rest? And the allure of conspiracies altogether? And what they mean? And their downsides? Hello. Join Anne and Sarah as they talk about that strange airport with the mural (you know the one) and what constitutes as a bankable conspiracy theory vs. pure garbage. Just don't blame them if you can't sleep at night.   You can follow Sarah on Instagram and on Twitter.    See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
You can't always get what you want. At least, within reason. This week, writer, actor, and comedian Nelu Handa joins Anne to talk about MANIFESTING, and why her beliefs about it are less about The Secret and more about . . . well, you'll have to listen. Which isn't hard when Nelu begins generously sharing tales of her own professional arc.   You can follow Nelu on Twitter and Instagram, and you can catch Yas Kween live at Bad Dog Comedy Theatre on the first Thursday of every month.    See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Writer Nourhan Hesham has a lot to say about Point Break -- but don't worry: she only cares about the good one. Join her as she goes in on why it's the ultimate love story, why it's a commentary on the myth of male masculinity, and how serious she is about all of it. (Also, Anne admits that she would be fine with robbing a bank.) (JK.) (Or not.)   You can follow Nourhan on Twitter and on Instagram.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
After the winter of our discontent, summer is finally here and we all know what that means: RUMMAGE SALES (or garage sales or antique markets -- whatever). Fortunately, author of A Brief History of Oversharing and comedian Shawn Hitchins joins Anne to dissect the ins and outs of antiquing, thrifting, and why both of them are so obsessed with other people's old shit. Spoiler alert: they're also very into ghosts.   You can buy Shawn's book online and wherever books are sold, and you can follow him on Twitter and Instagram.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
Thanks to actor, writer, and comedian Paloma Nuñez, Anne gets to talk about something she and every Canadian baseball fan have feelings on: the Toronto Blue Jays. Together, they talk tradition, the dangers of boys' clubs, and what it means to be a fan -- and yes, they'd appreciate if the Jays let them throw the first pitch for once in their lives.   You can follow Paloma on Twitter and Instagram, or catch her live when she's performing.    See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
