CH: You just released your hilarious new podcast, “The Patdown with Ms. Pat”. What made you finally decide that it was time to get in the podcast game for yourself?
MP: Every time I would appear on someone else’s podcast, people would tell me that they really enjoyed the content and that they would like to hear me start my own podcast. So, I finally gave in and started a podcast. To my surprise, I discovered that having a podcast is a lot of fun and that I really like to talk and tell people how I feel.
CH: You started the podcast with your producer and co-host, Chris Spangle. You and Chris have a really good chemistry and dialogue going so far. Are there plans to have other guests on the podcast?
MP: I would love to have guests on the podcast, but where would we get them from? Walmart? We live in a really small town. Worrying about booking guests is another reason I was hesitant to start this podcast. I was like, who the fuck am I going to interview? My trash man and mailman? So for now, it’s just me and Chris.
CH: In one of the latest episodes of “The Patdown With Ms. Pat”, you discuss the documentary, ‘Abducted In Plain Sight’ and provided a cackle-worthy commentary while discussing it. What else are you watching these days?
MP: Well, I’m not into Game Of Thrones. At least not right now. Maybe once this season is over I’ll start watching it from the beginning. But I am an ex-drug dealer so I really like that gangster shit. [Laughs]. I’m into shows like, “Queen of the South” and “Blindspot”. Real gangster shit.
CH: You’ve been very vocal about your time as a drug dealer at a certain point in your life before comedy. Do you think your time as a drug dealer made it easier to jump into comedy?
MP: Hell yeah! [Laughs] Being a drug dealer made me fearless and gave me lots of confidence. You have to be confident to go out and sell crack with no bra on.
CH: Your brand new podcast, ‘The Patdown with Ms. Pat’ is now available. For your fans who are reading this interview, what else is coming up for Ms. Pat?
MP: I have a lot of a new and exciting stuff coming up. I just sold a show to Hulu, so I’m waiting on updates on releasing that. I’m also working on writing and shooting a brand new hour special. Both of these projects are going to be a lot of fun and I can’t wait for people to see them.
Listen to the ‘The Patdown Ms. Pat’ here.
