Brooklyn Paper Radio

It was high times on Brooklyn Paper Radio!

On the latest episode of America’s most beloved podcast about Brooklyn, Kelly Barbieri, the editor in chief of The Fresh Toast, a website that teaches everyone — including our square hosts — about the wonders of marijuana, talked to the Lennon and McCartney of Community Journalism about the wonders of weed and why they should — legally — use it.

Of course, that ruled out any chance hosts Gersh Kuntzman and Vince DiMiceli would, as promised, toke up on the show.

In fact, the use of the term “toke up” was prohibited by Barbieri, who quickly surmised the boys knew nothing about pot.

“Where did you guys get your education?” she wondered.

“ ‘Cheech and Chong’ movies,” DiMiceli said.

But after a brief quizzing of DiMiceli about his work, pharmaceutical, and sleeping habits, Barbieri quickly ascertained that the host needed to start eating biscuits laced with the active ingredients of weed.

“An edible an hour before bed would help,” she said. “If it was indica based, that would help.”

But that changed when minute producer “Johnny” played a tape of Vince snoring.

“Oh my god, is that a loop?” Barbieri said of the weird, long noise.

At that point, she recommended newfangled pillows and nose strips.

Also on the show, Lauren Gill talked about her update to the story of a Greenpoint bicyclist killed by a garbage-truck driver.

Brooklyn Paper radio is recorded live every Tuesday at 4:30 pm.
