Mobile network CEOs get together in a smoke-filled backroom for an evening of collusion and unwanted nudity.

Also Jimmy Stewart stops by to brag about his new smartphone and all the cool apps he’s installed on it.

4.09 “Good Hitler and Me”

Our guest Tambre Massman rents out a room to Hitler… Jeff Hitler, to be exact. Jeff is a clone of Adolf with supposedly all the bad features genetically removed. Yet worrisome attributes seem to remain. Will Jeff’s passion to help the people go too far? And why does he insist on keeping that stupid mustache?

Dray on the mic.

Dray recorded with us last week on The Solution Boat Part 2 and next week’s Good Hitler and Me. Since Dray didn’t know me, I was worried about sending him a script with “Hitler” in the title, but it was fine. The guy’s got a great voice and acting skill. I’m real happy he’s decided to join the Machine Court cast.

4.08 “The Solution Boat Pt. 2″

On Day One, Yogi Paliwal heard everyone’s problems. Now it’s Day Two, and time for him to provide solutions. But Yogi’s problem-solving process has been horribly disrupted. In the course of just one day, he will need to fix a nuclear meltdown, invent a new kind of elevator, save a hack pop star’s career, and make the world fall in love with insurance. Don’t be skeptical, this is the Solution Boat, and Yogi will find all the answers.

Tambre Massman joins cast.

At a parking lot near you.

At a parking lot near you.

Actor and comedian, Tambre Massman, has joined the Machine Court cast. I’m loving her acting as Ormanda Otis in the Solution Boat episode of Machine Court. And you will hear her again as the guest in an upcoming episode, Good Hitler and Me. We actually recorded Tambre’s audio for GH&M months back before we invited her to join the cast.

4.07 “The Solution Boat Pt. 1″

Ride on Yogi Paliwal’s yacht for three days and he will solve your problem, no matter how large, how complicated, or how embarrassing. Presidents, CEOs, scientists, and pop divas count on Yogi to find solutions that nobody else in the world can. Behind Yogi’s cryptic demeanor lies at least one secret that he cannot reveal.
