What a Creep

Bob Hope is a Hollywood legend who starred in multiple successful films, was a big hit in radio & television, and was one of the biggest supporters of the USO program entertaining the men & women of our armed services for decades. He was also a terrible husband, a tyrannical boss and stubbornly out of touch for much of his life. Hear all of his bad deeds and then enjoy learning about what of the most generous actors of his or any generation.

What a Creep

This week we talk about notorious boy band creator (and major fraudster) Lou Pearlman who went from dreaming about running his own blimp company to managing some of the biggest boy bands in history to spending his last years in jail. This guy is a MAJOR creep but trust us, you can still enjoy your Backstreet Boys & NSYNC when you are done listening to this ep!

What A Creep: What A Creep: "Rock & Roll Creeps"

What a Creep

Margo & Sonia are in the mood to rock & roll all night and party every day with this rock-themed episode of musicians behaving very badly. This episode is a little different because instead of focusing on one person--we are taking turns with different bands who have very problematic bandmates. We also get into who is into really young girls before we talk about our NON-Creep.

What A Creep: What A Creep: "The 2019 Creepies" (Season 3, Episode 10)

What a Creep

This is our 2019 season finale and we could not be more excited than to celebrate our first ever awards--The Creepies! Somehow we were able to get a huge venue to host us--Wembley Arena! Sure, we are based in two different parts of the U.S. but with some podcast magic (meaning some booze and a little imagination) we make this show come to life.

What a Creep

Bikram Choudhury created Bikram yoga in the 1970s and the Calcutta-born yogi has experienced tremendous success for decades as an innovator and guru. He is also a total sleaze who lies about his accomplishments (training Richard Nixon? World Champion in the 1960s?) Oh, and he abuses and harasses women who think of him as a father figure. (What a creep, no?)

What a Creep

Johnny Depp has been nominated for an Academy Award three times and his movies have earned billions of dollars at the box office all over the world. He should be one of our most celebrated actors, but instead, we’re doing an episode of What a Creep about him.

What a Creep

Steven Seagal is creepy on so many levels that we had to weed some things out due to time constraints. Here we give you the 411 on why the first non-Asian person to own a dojo in Japan (sure, Jan), actor, musician, and the supposedly certified peace officer is not only an embellisher of his accomplishments but also a total letch to women. (And man is he sense of humor-deprived!)

What a Creep

President Bill Clinton was attorney general of Arkansas (1977–1979), governor of Arkansas (from 1979–1981 and 1983–1992), and president of the United States from 1993 to 2001. And, over the past few decades, a number of women have publicly accused him of sexual assault, sexual harassment, and rape.

What a Creep

Margo & Sonia give updates on a few of the Creeps covered in season in the past plus a new Creep--Harry Knowles of "Ain't It Cool News" who gave a very classy review of the show "Heroes" in 2006 (meaning he was a Creepy douche about Hayden Panettiere and the character she played when she was 17.)
