Working in an office is a drag, man. I bet Trump hates having to go to work everyday in the White House, where he has to pretend to know how to read all day, it's gotta be exhausting.

Comedian and director, Bronston Jones (@bronstonjones) joins me this episode to talk about film, comedy and life. He’s been hosting a comedy show at the Venice Underground every week on Wed nights for the past eight years. Check out his show and his podcast, I YAM WHAT I YAM.

Ben Herwitz (@ben_herwitz) has assured me that he is Jewish, so everything he says in the podcast is Kosher. 5000 years of tradition stand behind his words, and I am proud to provide a platform for him to spread his message of hate, in order to fulfill my dream of becoming deplatformed, and the getting on Rogan! Rogin on Rogan. Anyway, much like this description, we find out very little about Ben, but we do have a great conversation about the current state of our culture- pop, political, entertainment, just about every possible field that we are completely unqualified to talk about.

We start off with a special guest lecture from Dr. Rogin B Peterson, who is best known for his controversial stance on nonbinary lobsters.
Then it's regular ol’ Rogin talking about regular Rogin things. Mostly, he's wrestling with the ghosts of adolescence in the form of an old acquaintance who approached him for comedy advice and then turned on him with politics. Dude, I’m either tapping out of national politics, or I’m going to blowtorch these crack rocks down to the glass. Oh no, am I a Russian bot?

The white man needs a hug, and Ron Bush has been hugging them until they beg for more on the road for the better part of a decade. But he’s only one man, we all need to pitch in. We have a great talk starting off with Ancient Aliens and then discussing the thing middle-aged men always do- what’s wrong with the country.
President Trump is stoking racial fears against Rep. Omar by invoking the old “go back to where you came from,” by leading “SEND HER BACK” chants. Ron and I are no stranger to being told to go back to where we’re from, but we both know that we are Americans through and through. America is dealing with unhealed wounds of a racists past, and Ron and I discuss the problems as we see it, the strategy of deplatforming vs engagement, and Ron’s love of the closeted white supremacist.

Everything on social media is a secret ad running on an algorithm designed to social engineer you into the perfect consumer. No big deal, right? The old saying is true, “if you aren’t paying for the product, you are the product.”
Rob(@robthemutant) is the founder and CEO of Mutant Capitalist, a B2B digital marketing and B2B sales agency, who hired me a couple of years ago to make videos for weed gear. Since then, we’ve become friends and have had fun conversations like the one on this Kimcast. Rob freed himself from the brick and mortar grid a while back and now operates completely digitally and remotely. Comics still trying to make ends meet are slowly dying working in offices (meaning me), and I found Rob to be a great model to free myself from thinking I needed a “job” in the traditional sense.

Happy Mental Health Awareness Month! How's your mental health? How do you deal with intrusive thoughts that urge you to listen to right wing guests on podcasts just out of curiosity, like Milo Yiannopoulos on the Legion of Skanks, but no! You can't! It's forbidden! Imagine what they'll say- "Not a good look." That's worse than death, to not look good. It's quite a strain on the psyche, and in the end you should really look out for #1- the USA.

Life is sacred, but death makes all the cash! The right to an abortion is being challenged all over the country, while we provide no health care and rain fire down upon the heads of babies overseas. We are the rootin-tootin, shootin, nukin, bad mofo of the world and we are saying don’t let that baby dies in the womb, let it die in the classroom. None of it makes any sense, unless it’s part od the divide an conquer strategy that pits men against women, Bloods against Crips.

Happy Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage And Mental Health Awareness Month. May brings us a nice mish-mash of two groups that sorely need attention- Asians and the mentally ill. It’s a pretty tight Venn diagram between the two, speaking from personal experience. To me, the whole idea of an Asian identity is absurd, because “Asian” is a construct that breaks down in meaning upon inspection. Being Asian is least interesting thing about me, but the most interesting things about are because of my parents being from Asia. Really though, there was a war. That’s really the thing that shakes things up. I talk about mental health and the heroism of children as the only solution to school shooters. I ramble about the history behind the Chinese railroad workers and forgot to mention the backdrop of the Gold Rush in California, which I will undoubtedly ramble on and on about at a future point. Finally, LET’S HEAR IT FOR DENVER!!!!! They are the first US city to decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms and this could be the beginnings of a shift toward the psychedelic society.

Of course, I nerdily interject the historical context of black and Asian relations and the residential segregation of Los Angeles.

There are more Democratic candidates than there are Avengers and beloved characters at Winterfell combined. So much is going on, but it’s hard to see what’s real and what’s fake anymore, especially when we’re in such a position of privilege to not worry about survival. Of course, we are all just one medical bill away from financial ruin in America, which makes it the best reality show of all- walking the tightrope between the haves and have-nothings. The Democrats have nothing to offer us except a spectacle that pales in comparison to the Avengers: Endgame and the upcoming Battle of Winterfell in Game of Thrones. The public relates more to these fictional characters because they hold more truth to their actions than the bullshitters in politics.

088 Virginia Is For Druggies w/ Steven Belkowski
Joining me on this episode is Steven Belkowski (@belswagski), a comic I met in the open mic scene in LA who is a traveler both physically and psychedelically. We talked about his experience as a military brat growing up in Indonesia as a right wing Catholic lad, similar to the Covington kids! He would have definitely rocked the MAGA hat to town some libs back in his day. However, moving to Virginia changed all that and once he saw how people struggled his heart began to grow like the Grinch, and he turned to the psychedelic realm to open his mind.

LA is a vampire. Plain and simple. It sucks the water from it’s neighbors in order to sustain a manufactured metropolis in the desert. And I’m ALL IN, BABY!!!
This week I am taking a stand for the children, especially child actors. They are the broken by-product of a billion dollar system that seems to exist purely for entertainment at best and an institutionalized safe-haven for pedophiles. The only thing is, it’s never going to happen. Kids will always be part of the entertainment industry, and they will be touched if not by some scumbag, then at least the darkness.
I take a look at the upcoming movie, Little, and I wonder why this movie was even made. It seems like a vehicle for rationalizing the sexualization of a child by making the plot about a middle-aged woman’s mind inside the body of a 13 year old. Yikes. Haven’t they been watching all the documentaries that have been coming out?

My guest this episode is comedian Niles Abston, who has an animated project he’s working on called, Planet Blak, a stoner sci-fi comedy about a young black man who’s been recruited to sell weed for aliens. We discussed how he was inspired by the harsh drug laws of his home state of Mississippi and then we have a great conversation about the War on Drugs, America’s history of war in Asia, Black and Korean relations, and how despite the differences between people, most of us are our here just struggling to survive. We are actually more unified than separate, sometimes. There are no real answers here, just two comics asking questions and making white people uncomfortable.

The Mueller report was dropped and, boy, is it a bombshell! What a failure of the news media to go after things that matter like the survival of the human race, and instead make such a huge deal about Russian collusion and then have nothing to show for it. The media has been failing us consistently since WMDs after 9/11 and continues to do so. You mean the folks that had a 99% degree of certainty that Hillary Clinton would win, got something wrong, yet again?
Anyway with all the talk of the future being female, why not the present? Instead of all this time and money on trying to nail Trump, how about learning more about female sexuality and especially the vagina. It’s unconscionable that we all know so very little about the place from whence we all came.

More Gulag Archipelago to kick us off into a brief aside about Jordan Peterson and Cathy Newman, who you may not need me to remind you of, but let us consider the lobster, possibly for a bit too long. Then it's time to move onto the use of Asians as a sweet visual gag... I'm one to talk, I'm like a walking visual gag. And finally I top it off with an observation on the recentness of clean water and how everyone that ever lived in history before then was drunk.
Sun, 21 January 2018
The Gulag Archipelago has really got me thinking. Are we truly innocent until proven guilty when there are unjust laws in existence? Laws like NOT EATING CHICKEN BONES OFF THE COUNTER, BADGER, BAD BOY!! YOU ARE A BAD BOY AND I WILL PUT YOU IN BAD BOY PRISON!!! Apparently feeding raw chicken bones to dogs is fine, even good for them, but cooked bones can splinter and kill them. Wait, but maybe I'm the bad one? He's not the one who left the bones out, he's just a dog. Maybe I'm the bad one? Let's extrapolate that to our society at large... are we the bad guys? Because if we were in Star Wars are we the Resistance or the First Order. What do either of those things mean anyway? Why did the Empire fall to the Republic only for it to fall to the First Order? It just seems a little too convenient. I look back at my stretch of THC freedom having broken my fast, and some of the observations I've made. Finally, I consider our role as the world's police as we send faceless robots to rain fire down on tribal societies, or even just our complicity in a cycle of death that is necessary and inherent in order for so many of us to live.

Free speech is under assault! Not just the ability to say things, but also the ability to question what we should and shouldn't say. Of course, I'm talking more about my open mic adventures! This time, I'm banned from an open mic just for asking why we weren't allowed to tell dick jokes. Keep in mind, this was an ad hoc rule the host decided to tack on after someone's set. This type of thing is bad for comedy. Where else but an open mic can comedians risk being unfunny in order to find what's funny? Censorship ensures that those risks are always second-guessed and is comedy contraception cockblocking laughter.

I love comedy. I'm talking a real love though, not an empty platitude on Valentine's Day candy. I'm talking about having to clean someone else's shit kind of love, which only seems to be appropriate with babies and animals, but here I am doing it for comedy. It's in the awkward moments where the fabric of social norms is whisked aside momentarily that I revel in. I recognize that perhaps I'm masochistic, but I've had enough therapy to realize that it's ok, it's totally appropriate in the context of standup comedy to ride that edge. Haha I sound like such a douchebag.

Roasting has permeated geopolitics! Is there no end to the roastification of the planet? You got your carbon heating things up but you also have viscous verbal barbs being slung willy-nilly, with no thought to the consequences. Many people believe the moment Trump decided to be President was when Obama roasted him at the White House Press Correspondence Dinner. Now Trump is President and is roast battling Kim Jong Un at the UN, and KJU responds with the D-bomb that had everyone shitting themselves. Meanwhile, is this what's important? Maybe. At least it's more important than football.

Lots of dong waggling going on in the Korean peninsula, and I waggle my own dong, my history dong, and explore the history of the Konflict between the two Koreas.

In this episode, I rant about walls. The government neared shutting down because of the Border Wall, but what's in a wall? Do they really work? How crazy is it that we annexed what was once Mexico, fought a war over it, promised dual citizenship, reneged on the promise, use Mexicans as cheap labor, blame them for our troubles, and then tell them we want to build a wall that won't really work? Beyond physical walls, we have the metaphorical walls that we construct to make sense of the world- us vs them, red team vs blue team, Coke vs Pepsi... But when will we learn to drop all our walls and accept that we are all just people?

This episode of the Kimcast, I have my cousin Han Kim. He has a podcast called In The Kimchi Jar. He's also runs shit in the poogmul world, as well as spreading the teachings and philosophy of Dosan Ahn Chang Ho. We tried to keep the conversation on track about depression, and we talk about our own experiences with it as well as how we coped and the treatment that we sought. We talk about the times we wanted to kill myself, which for me was all part of a terrible "acid" trip that left me trapped in a another dimension looking to fuck my way back. We inevitably talk about our fucked up families and our hopes for the future. All in all, this was a great conversation with a terrific podcaster in his own right.

I'm pondering on the need for some structure to this podcast, but then would mean I have to put in more work and effort, meaning less podcasts overall? Maybe less is more, unless it's not, then it's less and more is more. In this episode, I talk about how it's St. Patrick's Day, how the State Dept. has been gutted, the irony of a guy who wrote "The Art of The Deal," trying to defund the arts, Rex Tillerson aka Wayne Tracker, and a little sign-posting on some book reports I'd like to do in the future.

I'm tired of Trump, so I'm taking a much needed Trump dump. Enough talk about politics, let's get back to me. This episode I ruminate on famliy. Part of leaving LA when I was a kid was all about leaving my family and abandoning my dad the same way he's abandoned me. I've since grown older, wiser, done a shit ton of psychedelics, and has a shit ton of analysis in order to find myself here, back in LA having to ask my dad for money, and having to work for it. He helped me see both a reflection of myself and of himself at my age. Hmmm... maybe this episode is too real? Not for me! It's exactly the right amount of real.

Just look at him. You know he wants that dong from Hong Kong. He's definitely jerked it to Enter the Dragon while imagining Bruce Lee's hot yellow rod up his, SURVEY SAYS... ass. The survey says ass.
Steve Harvey underwent some controversy this past week by making jokes about dating Asian men, namely, that nobody wants to. Eddie Huang responded in suit and hey, he did a great job so that the rest of us don't have to struggle with articulating some shit we need to move past. If anything, I have to thank Steve Harvey for the title, which is the premise of a bit I'm going to be working out on stage for my upcoming show at Fubar in West Hollywood 1/27 8pm. It's going to be really gay, both the bit and the venue.
I talk about Steve Harvey meeting Trump at Trump Tower, which has a very LOTR feel to it, no? I land briefly on Steve Harvey's comments, only to segue into a riff about asian masculinity. What is it? Is it Bruce Lee? Chances are for most of you, it's Bruce Lee. I challenge Steve Harvey to talk shit about Bruce Lee and see how far he gets!
We go deeper into the wormhole, take a pic of Metaphysics Gulch, and then I ponder the reality of my own existence... Am I just a cheap Asian facsimile of Joe Rogan? Could I ever live out my dreams of becoming Asian Joe Rogan? Would the UFC try to slip me in his place and try to pull the wool over everyone's eyes? Considering this week started off with MLK Day and ends with Trump's inauguration, I'd say that even though it sounds like bad writing, it's the good life!

Twelve days in and I finally address the new year! Let's start it off with The Cranberries, Ode to my Family, because I'm unemployed, or self-employed rather, and staying in an Air BnB in gorgeous Park La Brea, which is basically the immigrant middle class projects filled with cockroaches and immigrants!
It's 2017, dammit, and I've stayed off the radar. I recount watching Trump get elected at The Comedy Store and making eye contact with Joe Rogan, who I saw being a real good dude. He's definitely the reason I have a Vitamix. I feel I saw a glimpse of his true character, which I believe is revealed under adversity or when anonymous.
Son then there's Trump. Would the first woman president be just as big a liar as all the rest? I then go into a dank hole of pepe, kek, meme magic, /pol/, 4chan, army of darkness, internet culture, chaos, frogs, tribalism, and the lulz.
The final analysis- every single tribe is shitty and great. Look, we're all people. It doesn't matter if you're woke or red pilled, we're all gonna die. Entropy wins in the end. Even if we became immortal, the sun will swell and destroy theEarth.
We construct meaning as finite creatures, but we're selfish. What if we found out that Earth's existence was causing the deaths of two other planets, would we sacrifice ourselves for them? Is it cynical to think we're just self-interested monkeys? On the other hand, what do I know? What the fuck is dark energy and dark matter?
When I first left LA, I couldn't wait to get out of here. Now, this place ain't so bad. Winter in LA is adorable. We are lucky and in the sweet spot of civilization. Best contribution of 2016- 'member berries from South Park.

It's Election Day Eve and both sides are likening tomorrow's results as the harbinger of Armageddon, but that's soooo dramatic! Come on, you really think everything's going to change? Do you think the President has that much power? When was the last time a President delivered what the candidate version himself said just a year earlier? There's a lot of pillow talk that happens before someone's elected, but afterward, it's business as usual. Too bad that business is war.
Marijuana legalization is on the the ballot in California and eight other states. Let's make the union green! The War on Drugs is a racist and authoritarian criminalization of black nationalists and anti-war protestors in the 70s. We have a chance to make some real money in California and stop letting Colorado make us look bad. I mean Colorado is great, I love it, I love the people, the mountains, I really do, but it's the Khloe to our Kim. Let's be real. We can't keep sitting on the sidelines letting Khloe get all the press and all the cheddar! There is the off chance that the economy could crash because high people would be less susceptible to advertising, but we mustn't let the best become the enemy of tho good.

Podcasts are crucial to the economic backbone of this country. If you took them away, productivity would plummet and you'd have to reintroduce whipping to get the numbers back in the black. I would say that the above is non sequitur but it's the first thing I said, so how can it be?
Glenn finally died after waiting seven months in between seasons of The Walking Dead. A lot of Asian guys are saying that they'll stop watching the show now that he's dead and to them I say, good riddance. Those guys would probably be the first to die in any apocalyptic scenario- zombie, robot, even weed. That's right during a weed apocalypse they'd be the first ones to ever die from marijuana, fucking up the numbers for the rest of us. You'd have to reintroduce whipping to get the numbers back in the black. OH MY GAD THAT'S A CALLBACK SON!!!
Anyway, we are all one. Enough with the stupid tribal shit. There isn't a lot of time, we need to adapt or die.

What a wonderful world we live in! I'm broadcasting from lovely Torrance, CA with my dog, Badger, amidst the controlled release of flammable fumes rendered harmless by plumes of fire. That doesn't worry me. I also saw a coyote in Torrance, right across the street from me, perhaps on his way for the day shift at the refinery. None of this bothers me! I'm a bit stressed about money, but beyond that, life is great! I'm in sunny LA, hitting mics, doing my thing, and getting by, what more do I need right now? Just your ear, dear listener, that makes it all worthwhile.

044 Historical Relics w/ John Cha (@authorjcha), Flip Cuddy (dosan.org), and Han Kim (@inthekimchijar)
Never in my wildest dreams or deepest darkest nightmares did I ever think that I would be back in the Valley sitting in a room filled with Korean dudes, nor did I think that I would have a great time, but I did!
John Cha is an author who writes about the Korean and Korean-American experience, and was the first person to interview a high-ranked defector from North Korea. He was instrumental in breaking through the Ginseng Curtain, allowing the US to learn about North Korea's inner workings for the first time. For the record, I made up the term Ginseng Curtain.
Flip Cuddy is the grandson of Dosan Ahn Chang Ho, a Korean independence activist and leader of the burgeoning Korean-American community in California. Flip is a surfer, carpenter, geographer, hydrologist, and many other things that you might think was total bullshit, but the dude is the real deal!
Han Kim, is a podcaster, my cousin, and a real righteous dude letting me and my dog crash at his place despite the fact that he has pet allergies! Do you hear me! He is compromising his immune system for me! I am forever indebted and grateful for his generosity, and his podcast, In The Kimchi Jar, which he puts out weekly with Flip. It will surely become a repository of knowledge and a great resource for people more interested in Korean-American History.
We talk a great deal about history, Korean and otherwise, the nature of reality, climate change, the invention of LA kalbi, North Korea, whether Japan should be allowed to have nuclear weapons, and much more.

Tino Romero is an open mic institution in NYC. We sat in a park and talked about his experiences growing up Panamanian and black, his adventures in squatting following a Craigslist housing scam, a racial roast battle controversy that spun out of control on social media, and his experiences growing up as a weed smoker in the 80s in NYC. Tino is a good dude and one of the first people who put me up. The mic he ran at Bar 82, will be spoken of at length many years from now during the documentary the make about us.

I met with Johnny Zito in a Whole Foods at Union Square in NYC to talk about a bunch of stuff. We started off with bitcoin, the darknet, research chemicals, and my 1p-LSD adventure with Caleb. We talked about filmmaking, screenwriting, Johnny's misadventures hiring crew for his short film, weed in NYC during the 80s, and finally his band Crusade. All the music is from their album, Atrocities That May Have Been Committed.

Lisa invited me over to her apartment in Queens that her mom bought for her because THAT'S WHAT PARENTS ARE SUPPOSED TO TO, DAD!! We had a great conversation starting with the happenings of Lisa's neighborhood of Woodside, Queens to the intricacies of the different levels of the Atkins Diet Then we discussed capitalism run amok, Steve Jobs, conflict minerals, the rise of totalitarianism, the Ottoman Empire, World War I, the Middle East, the Syrian refugee crisis, mass shootings, 1980s New York, CBGBs, the Armenian Genocide, Turkey, death, and you know what? JUST BE GAY.

I went with Caleb to Rockaway Beach to spend the day in contemplation, which meant eating a tab and sitting on the beach become aware and completely fine with the inevitable heat death of the universe, or at least the sun. The same sun which burned me and Caleb despite our attempts at applying sunscreen to ourselves. We were too straight to even consider asking the other to put lotion on our backs. Now my back is peeling so much my DNA is probably going to be popping up in crime scenes all over the country.
Despite the set-up, Caleb and I had a great discussion as we overlooked the Atlantic. We discussed our nation's obesity problem, talked about hunting and fishing, our dads, the metaphorical titty milk that we all crave, gender relations, feminism, relationships, the Darwin Awards, the Drug War, drugs, and alcohol, which is also a drug, but for some reason gets its own category. Perhaps because it's awesome?

The rise of the right wing is evident with the stunning upset results of the referendum on Britain's membership in the EU. The right wing uses tactics based on the fear-centered lizard brain, and it's the same old song whether you're talking about the present climate, WWII, or even California during the Gold Rush. History has a linear path, and the roots of the current rise of fascist dialogue can be seen in the colonial mentality of post-WWI Britain and France. Some might even say that the refugee crisis are chickens coming home to roost. Chickens that date back to as fas a Alexander the Great. I wonder if Alexander the Great was into chicken wings.

This episode is brought to you by Headspace! Give them your money! No wait, give me your money! Nah, it's ok, you keep it. That right there is why I am the worst businessman in the world. The shooting in Orlando is a bummer. So is the reaction that happens afterward in the media, social or otherwise. Maybe we can take solace in the fact that this is all a simulation, or that it's all too real, either way, what's the difference? The difference is YOU!!! Thanks so much for listening!

Content is king. That's what they say, and they mean it! So in the spirit of our sovereign ruler, here's another podcast!
What could I possibly be talking about? Well, I have an announcement about a new sponsor-Squarespace! Not really, or I guess, not at all. They don't sponsor me, I'm actually a customer of theirs and I highly recommend them!
How about another podcast? Yes another one, because this one is so successful. It's about two subjects close to my heart- history and cannabis.
Consider being registering with the National Bone Marrow Registry, your exquisite genes could save the life of a child with less luck of the draw!
I've been getting some great physical therapy from my friend Karl while he's serving his residency at iPT! Check him out while he's providing his services for only $5 for an hour of physical therapy.
It's also possible that I may be having a slow-motion stroke that's been going on for the last few years because I may be slurring my words, it could also be THC induced paranoia. So paranoia or palsy, that's where I'm at.

I thought that I would be able to increase the output of my podcast episodes by doing absolutely zero post-production after hearing Tim Ferris talk about how his podcast workflow worked. I recorded this thing weeks ago and then a bunch of stuff happened and now it's way later than it would have been had there been some post. Well, lesson learned. And that lesson is- Tim Ferris doesn't know shit!
Just kidding, he's right, I'm wrong.

The election season is upon us and it's easy to get wrapped up in all the dramas well as not giving the tiniest shit about it! Would Trump be as terrible a president as people fear, or is it folly to believe that one person can make a difference in the US political system. Especially considering the two most recent email leaks, the Panama Papers and Unaoil, which detail the level of corruption that most of aren't surprised by, but never had so much proof. Finally, I share my experience with cold water immersion or ice baths as a poor man's cryotherapy and I detail the benefits as highlighted by Dr. Rhonda Patrick on FoundMyFitness.com.

Come along with me on a journey through the improbable fabric of space and time, starting with my knee and ending in the Singularity. Well, that's a lot of ground to cover, so I talk a bit about climate change and how February was the hottest month ever recorded, the discovery of gravitational waves, and the trouncing of Lee Se-dol, a 9th-dan Go world champion, by AlphaGo, an artificial intelligence that experts say is 10 years ahead of it's time!

I'm obsessed with the Mongols, but then we land on Caleb's thoughts on white women, so take not lonely hearts!

Mike Hernandez is a comedian who is a consummate New Yorker with plenty of NYC pride, we start off talking about geographical pride, my lack of it, and end up spiraling into class warfare, Bernie Madoff, the history of the Middle East and the inevitably of the sun exploding, none of which we are actually qualified to talk about!

Except I raised by Koreans and Kate was raised by Irish Catholics, which it turns out, doesn't make too much of a difference!

Brian Kim joins me this episode to talk about some of his experiences working in sales getting juiced and making sure he scores the best T.

What could make Christmas in NYC more complete than seeing a dead body in the East River? I used to always think that bodies in the East River was a tired trope of old gangster movies, but nope, it's the real deal. But, enough of this morbidity, because my guest this episode will turn that corpse induced frown upside down!
Diego is a comedian, MMA fighter/instructor, and all around great guy. We talk about his thoughts on the difference between cagefighting and standup, which one was scarier for him, and how the mindset that he gained from his martial arts training has translated over to comedy. We also have a good talk about Jiu Jitsu and how it relates to life and, of course, comedy, because what is more important in this crazy world of ours except having a laugh and a good time?

All of our modern conveniences may be the product of an industrial death machine, but it's all for us and we should be thankful for that. There is some rambling about climate change, the Syrian conflict, Paris, asteroids, and how children of the Congo and China keep furnishing us with the shiniest of new gadgets!

Mostly because neither of us can really get behind this flat earth biz when it comes down to thousands of years of science vs some guy on the internet.
Plus, here's a clip of Bill Cosby interviewing Sofi Vergara-

Mental health is a sorely overlooked part of life in American society. We are continuously bombarded with weapons of mass consumption designed to make us feel worthless without the next shiny new phone, and as soon as we feel depressed from this spiritual oppression, we are prescribed pills to make the feelings go away It's enough to drive a motherfucker batshit crazy!
I've had my own struggles with clinical depression and managed to manage my symptoms through a lot of therapy, a lot of weed, exercise, and creativity. It takes a lot of work, but I can't look down or judge people who don't find the same results without medication. My friend and fellow comic Jimmy Son sat down with me to discuss his experience with psychiatrists, staying on and going off his meds, and more!

Americans are obsessed with race because of our special relationship with people of all colors throughout history. Recently a number of news items stuck out to me as particular examples of the absurdity and lack of sophistication in which America deals with its race issue- Rachel Dolezal, and the casting of Emma Stone as Allison Ng.
I'm joined by Jimmy Son (@thejimmyjuice) to discuss what he thinks about these two issues. Finally, in light of the Charleston shooting and the media response to Obama dropping the n-bomb on Marc Maron's podcast, it's clear that we have much further to go.

In this episode, I talk about cancer and plane crashes because it's all sunshine and lollipops in the spring time! Just kidding, I'm doing fine, hope you are doing well.
I ramble on about Angelina Jolie and how I think it's irresponsible for her to advocate surgically removing parts using probabilities from a genetic test, when a cure can be right around the corner. They've just started re-engineering viruses to fight cancer! How dare we presume to know what the future of medical technology holds! Ok, that's judgmental. Look you can do what you want, and I won't fault anyone for making an informed choice about her own health, but come on!

It's Black History Month and what better way to celebrate it then to take a look at one of the greatest contributions to American culture by black people- Jazz.
Ok, to be honest, I know nothing about it. I hardly listen to it. All I did was watch Ken Burns's Jazz, and it blew my mind. Ok, I didn't actually watch all of it, there's a lot of episodes, but I highly recommend everybody at least watch the first episode in order to get a rundown on the roots of jazz and it's affect on our culture.
I was particularly struck by the philosophy of jazz as a form of individual expression. Jazz comes out of a truth-telling emotionality, freedom of expression inside the boundaries of musical structure. Similarly, comedy has evolved from a superficial punch-setup form to one of raw truth. In this podcast, I ramble on about the connections that I intuited between the two, all stemming from Wynton Marsalis's breakdown of the downbeat in jazz.

Hello, fellow travelers. It's been some time. I know. I know. But you know what? I quit my job, so I feel great. So great that I 'm inspired to make shit. That's what this year is all about making things with my brain fruit.
I am this episode joined by Jimmy Son, who is a comedian that is looking for some funding, whether it's for his documentary or for his medications, it's all for a good cause. Go visit his GoFundMe page at gofundme.com/jimmyson. We ate some weed candy and Jimmy continually sparked up massive cones, so that may be why there are some unnecessarily long pauses. Why did I not edit it out? Because that would be lying. The truth can hurt or just be awkward silence. That's life. We sat and talked about Jimmy's shattered basketball dreams, his soul-sucking twelve years in corporate America, and the new trajectory in life in which if he finds success, he will live lavishly, throw big parties, and never show up to any of them.

The Interview was pulled by Sony after being hacked by a group that might be North Koreans who are pissed about Kim Jong Un getting killed in the movie.

This episode, I'm back after a month-long hiatus, which I ramble on about Darren Wilson's grand jury testimony, Bill Cosby's ever-increasing rape allegations, and the demoralizing saga of my continuing purgatory of corporate America. My guest this episode is comedian Dee Marie. We talk about Dee's start in comedy, a little bit about his process, and then we discuss what it was like growing up in Queens during the 80s and 90s, especially how bullying has changed.

Johnny Zito met me at Union Square park where we had a great talk about comedy, both standup and improv, screenwriting, and the nature of the creative process. Johnny was the first person to ever book me on a show and he runs a room that has become a staple of the underground of comedy in Brooklyn. I picked his brain because this guy has been around, whatever you do, don't sleep on Johnny Zito. Maybe with him, with his consent, of course, but not on him.

Brittany joined me this week on the podcast to talk about her decision to leave NYC and go to Dallas for a few months because she realized that the city was making her depressed.

Actualy, that part's not like me at all. I would never do that. We sat in the lunchroom, which looked like the kitchen of a single dad and we talked about how both of our childhoods were affected by neglect and wondered if the Korean War had anything to do with how crazy our parents turned out.

Cassidy and I met at a park with synthetic turf where we discussed Cassidy's aspirations of becoming a marijuana retailer, perhaps using her superb baking skills to start a business. I've been thinking about this forever, maybe this could be the start of something big! We then go on to discuss Kansas City, where Cassidy grew up, and then we get carried away to a hilariously terrifying magical cryogenic utopia filled with antisemetic tramp stamps and crackheads who make eye contact.
