This podcast is usually a space where we collect the takes from all the shows on the biggest story of the week. I’m not sure I can accurately describe this story as the “biggest.” I just thought after 19 of these, we could do a fun one.

George Clooney made headlines this week after telling CBS Sunday Morning that he’s been cutting his hair with a Flowbee for years.

If you don’t remember what a Flowbee is, or, like me, you weren’t alive when they were invented, here’s the original infomercial.

The Clooney anecdote reminded Dori Monson that he had considered getting a Flowbee at the beginning of the pandemic, but they proved harder to track down than he imagined.

John Curley actually believes Clooney is lying about this for publicity.

Listening to Clooney talk about this inspired Gee and Ursula producer Andrew Lanier to suggest Curley sounds like Clooney, which is ironic because Curley was just talking this week about how his son makes fun of him for sounding similar to another public figure with a last name that begins with the letter “C.” But only when he’s angry.

Tune in and decide for yourself.

Apologies to Seattle’s Morning News, they’re way too cool to ever cover a story like this and unfortunately get left out this week.

The KIRO Radio Rundown Podcast collects takes from each KIRO Radio host on the biggest stories of the week and puts them in one place. Released Tuesdays and Thursdays by 7 p.m.
