Great discush with special guests Steve Ignatious and Brian Crowe. Emily ponders birthday rankings, thoughts on mainlining Jolly Ranchers, park drama, and a promise between friends to watch reality TV.
This doozy goes deep into how misspelled start-ups set a tone for shady employee practices, not knowing how to deal with strange and scary white folk, fatalistic sloganeering, disjointed renderings of serial killer portraits, odd synchronicities between Two centuries worth of Koreshes, the power of guilt and how to not overuse it, along with several dozen off-road trips. All of the above served on a healthy bed of some of the healthiest esoteric, folk, funk, and good ol’ weird American music.
Emily Perina and I start off the show with tarot readings, endless malls, hotline dings from basement aerophysicists and reluctant psychic skeptics. Then, like the wonderful magician that he is, our friend and comedy wizard Vin Forte stopped by to talk doping with Cisco oil, pony play, cute cartoon raccoons leading to a real-world invasive species crisis, and a cornucopia of mind-blowing side-tangents worth taking the ride for. Check out Vin’s excellent podcast. Any Time with Vin Forte, and check his writing on the groundbreaking live comedy show The Special Without Brett Davis. Follow Vin on twitter @vinforte
