Kristi has all the time in the mornings to watch the news, get her kids off to school and shovel Nigel’s driveway in a snow storm. We talk about her new life where mornings begin at 6:20am instead of 4:00am. We also talk about her days as an NBA sideline reporter, her troubling height difference and why she found herself in some hot water with the Pacers by being innovative during broadcasts. We also find out who called her out during a press conference. Plus we find out what a “handler” is. Finally we find out what Kristi Lee drinks and what is in her medicine cabinet and we break some news about a Love Brothers Reunion and their new uncensored bit.
Born in Minneapolis, raised in Indianapolis, Naomi (needs no last name) Pescovitz is home as the new weekend anchor at WTHR.

What it’s like to be first on the scene of a major news story. The uncomfortable “man on the street” interviews with families suffering from tragedies. We lighten the mood up with some talk about pre-Miley twerking, growing up jewish during the Christmas season, and how she loves loves loves food… including Cool Ranch Doritos. *For the record… Naomi doesn’t actually hate Christmas… [Tweet “#ListeningTo @NaomiPescovitz talk about her love of butter on @hammerandnigel”] Audio Subscribe Subscribe via Stitcher Subscribe via TuneIn Subscribe via iTunes Episode Guests Naomi PescovitzWTHR Weekend Anchor Episode Sponsors “…there was this really cute goose and like it was in Evansville…” – Naomi Pescovitz
We delve into nerd culture with Pete Kilmer, Q95 personality and owner of Downtown Comics, and Gregg Nowling, movie prop collector and creator.

We also reveal that Hammer has never seen a single film from a certain major movie franchise centered around Harrison Ford, yet instantly recognizes Pee Wee’s bike from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. We also discuss the many cons that make up our lives these days (Comic Con, Indy Pop Con, Gen Con, and many more cons).

Pauly Shore joined the show in what became a first for the Hammer and Nigel show. The interview was uncomfortable, unpredictable and fun, especially when Pauly stepped away from the stage and into the crowd to talk with the people. It’s an interview that can’t be described and must be heard.

He talks about being a player forming a band, working on his new album in a cottage in the woods of southern Indiana.

Once the Quesadilla challenge is over, we switch topics to Terri’s Indianapolis Woman magazine cover where it appears she’s naked in the tub.

They discuss the intricacies of learning about your son looking at federal jail time, the failures and flights of fancy that plagued Josh before coming up with an idea that stuck and how genetics play a roll in the entrepreneurial spirit. We also discuss how many times Josh and Bottoms Up Beer were from failure and that both Alan and Nigel’s own dad share similar circumstances… it’s part of being a business owner and growth as a business. At the end we dive into the difference between masturbation and procrastination. Broadcast Table with Bottoms Up Beer Dispenser
