I talk about why I am both the best and the worst date, some Charlie Hebdo free speech dissemination, and why it's difficult to think what I think and also be in entertainment.
I talk about acquiring @drewmichael on Twitter, people's horrible topic suggestions, and Bill Cosby and why it's important to look at the bigger picture. Happy New Year!
I talk about The Interview and the phony Sony (!) free speech debate. Also lots more Fred Hampton and why we shouldn't be over that. [Recorded on an iPhone so the audio quality is low.]
I talk about how everyone embraces shitty qualities, getting herpes, why everyone is wrong about the CIA torture report bullshit and much more!
I talk about having nothing to talk about, new fun holiday ideas, the problem with rewarding the wrong qualities, the existential problem of being single, and the things that get in the way of LIFE.
I talk about not having anything to talk about, dating your parents, and a general mess of randomness.
I talk about people who eat suckers, my first trip to Vegas which was unlike anyone else's, and ISIS. Yes, I caved and fucking talked about ISIS.
I invent a new philosophical concept of time then I talk about sports bar idiocy, the commoditization of laughter, comedy audiences, and love vs. commerce. They're all hits!
I talk about seeing Mark Kozelek (Sun Kil Moon) in Newtown, CT and what it means to be a struggling artist and the feeling of being under-appreciated. I'm sure there's a sex joke in there for you simple-minded goblins.
We're back! I talk about... fuck, I forgot already. It was a good one. Oh, how I wish I were better at everything, the plague of self-doubt, questioning the value of certain processes when compared to more satisfying life experiences. You know, the "hits." It's all here. Get it!
No show this week. A few quick updates and plugs. I'm taking a brief summer break and I'll be back with new episodes soon! Get this update in your ears in the meantime.
I was a guest on a live taping of Pete Holmes' podcast, "You Made It Weird." It was a crazy fucking show and I had so much fun. Kumail Nanjiani, Emily Gordon, Cameron Esposito, Whitmer Thomas, and Brooks Wheelan were on as well and they were all hilarious.

I talk a little bit about the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal. I also talk about how beauty can emerge from strife and the powerful nature of that process.
I talk about comedy on this one. Chicago comedy vs. New York comedy and why Chicago is so awesome. Sorry if you're not into comedy, but it was on my mind and I don't have a boss at my podcast job.
I talk about cock rings and other weird sex activities, the paradox of feeling both insanely complex yet utterly meaningless, why sports might actually be evil, and the annoying political debates that obstruct the pathway to meaningful living.
I talk about going back to Chicago, getting served with a lawsuit, mushrooms, and why everyone needs to do them.
I talk about the experience of going to my friend's wake, funeral, and tribute show, what I learned about the range of the human condition, and why I get so mad about things.
I talk about my friend, Dan Ronan, who recently died.
I talk about #YesAllWomen, Elliot Rodger, and the demonic possession that is the male sex drive. Probably some other things but I've had a few beeeeeeeeeers.
