What a Creep

Season 4, Episode 4

Bob Hope

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: Lou Pearlman (Season 4, Episode 2)

What a Creep

Season 4, Episode 2

Lou Pearlman

Hello everyone!

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!

Then we talk about a singer/songwriter/actor/philanthropist who belongs to the illustrious “EGOT” squad (winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar & a TONY award!)

What A Creep: “Rock & Roll Creeps”

What a Creep

Season 4, Episode 1

Rock & Roll Creeps

Hello everyone!

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.  

Some of the bands and people we discuss in this show: The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Motley Crue, Elvis Presley, Steven Tyler,  and Guns & Roses. Get your Bic lighters ready and we will rock and roll this place!

Season 3, Episode 8

What a Creep: Steven Seagal (Season 3, Episode 7)

What a Creep

Season 3, Episode 7

Steven Seagal

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!)

Really, he is super gross. Plus, Margo shares her own Seagal story! 

Then we get rid of the ickiness of Seagal and talk about an actor and philanthropist who was not a creep and we should all emulate!

What a Creep: Bill Clinton (Season 3, Episode 6)

What a Creep

Season 3, Episode 6

Bill Clinton

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. 

It’s time to admit that we didn’t do right by these women that came forward in the ’90s. In a Vox article by Matthew Yglesias he wrote, “We can’t change the past, but we should be clear about it.”

What a Creep: Jian Ghomeshi (Season 3, Episode 5)

What a Creep

Season 3, Episode 5

Jian Ghomeshi

Jian Ghomeshi was once a superstar in Canada. He was in a popular band in the 90s that was nominated for Juno Awards and then as a CBC TV & Radio presenter. His talk show “Q with Jian Ghomeshi” was a huge hit across Canada airing twice per day with a popular YouTube channel and it aired on over 170 public radio stations at its peak between 2007-2014.

Then he was accused of sexual assault and battery losing his big gig and being a precursor to the string of men who would be indicted in the #MeToo movement that began in 2017. He tried to reshape his narrative with a factually challenged essay in 2018 which served to show he really hadn’t learned any lessons at all.

Then we talk about a Bay Area broadcaster who ISN”T a Creep!

What a Creep: Scott Adams (“Dilbert”)

What a Creep

Season 3, Episode 4

Scott Adams (“Dilbert” Creator)

“Dilbert” is a comic strip about office drone Dilbert and his dog Dogbert. It’s about office culture, micromanaging bosses and annoying coworkers, and it’s syndicated in more than 2,000 newspapers and is being read in 57 countries, and in 19 languages. It’s created by Scott Adams. You’d think that the creator of Dilbert would be on the side of workers. Unfortunately, Scott Adams is just another rich jerk who doesn’t want to pay his fair share in taxes. Oh, he’s also a big believer in the men’s rights movement.

What a Creep: Matt Lauer (Season 3, Episode 3)

What a Creep

Matt Lauer

Season 3, Episode 3

Welcome back to What a Creep! Today we have a newsy Creep who finally lost his job after 20 years of inappropriate behavior (to say the least!) and was shielded by a corporate culture that took care of their big star and made several women sign Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) to hide his actions and provide him cover.

Matt Lauer is gross, y’all and he was basically hiding in plain sight. (Margo presents this week and she basically needed a “Silkwood Shower” when she was done!)

Then, Margo & Sonia talk about a morning show anchor who is definitely NOT a Creep.
