Then Kerry joins The Bartender for the first ever "Tell The Bartender Theater" segment where they do a dramatic reading of a series of unflattering text messages about Kerry, accidentally sent to Kerry, from a (now former) friend of Kerry.

The Serial parody you’ve all been waiting for! Every year, The Bartender’s friends celebrate the Scottish tradition of Burns Night, which honors poet Robert Burns. There is haggis, scotch, tartan, scotch, poems, scotch and toasts. This year Forest Ray was given the task to tell the “Immortal Memory” which revolves around a very naughty poem by Burns. So he wrote a spoof of the very popular and awesome NPR podcast Serial. Here it is! Conceived by Forest Ray and Jordan Kraft, written by Forest Ray, with the vocal stylings of Forest, Jordan, Sharda Sekaran, Suparna Mukherjee, Alex Kveton and yours truly, Katharine, doing her best impersonation of the host of Serial Sarah Koenig (who Katharine just found out is her cousin).
