Total Sidebar is three friends who can make an entertaining conversation out of a discussion on, well, pretty much anything. We are women work, raise families, and go off on tangents that never fail to surprise and entertain. Comedian and guest wrangler Ellen Comley runs the shows, selecting topics that her two sidekicks Jennifer Palmer and Alex Shumway are not briefed on, meaning all content is fresh and unscripted. The average show might include an argument over how to penalize people who suck at parking, what happened to Hammer Pants, or whether you should ever accept a trophy that calls you an “Unsung Hero.” We also cover pop culture in our “Like it Or Not” segment and toss up impossible decisions in our which-would-you-rather-do segment Speed Round. We are a team of very funny, very relatable grown-ass women who have become a habit for a core of rabid listeners who love to “sidebar.” Our listeners tell us we are their best pals for the morning commute, working in the kitchen, getting in your 10,000 steps or kicking back with a cocktail (or three). We studiously avoid politics and contentious current events, and instead focus on the ridiculous and absurd – think “Seinfeld” at a girls’ weekend. One listener claims we lower his blood pressure with every episode (should we look into bottling this stuff? Hello, Bristol-Meyers, our new sponsor!). We have all worked in advertising most of our careers (look us up!) so we are well-versed in what it takes to deliver a great advertising value. We can write custom scripts for any advertiser or punch up existing spots so they come through in the Total Sidebar voice. We will organically promote products within the show, and happily talk about our beloved sponsors on social media. You’ll find we’re an upbeat, positive and highly listenable podcast who's fanbase is committed - and growing. Let’s do this thing!
