    Travis Stovall | 2020 Mayoral Candidate Who Knows How People Tick

    Travis Stovall | 2020 Mayoral Candidate Who Knows How People Tick

    We get so caught-up in the presidential election that sometimes we forget that the most important votes are the ones that affect us locally, such as who is going to be the next person to run the town or city you are in. During the Covid-19 pandemic, local leadership was crucial to help small businesses stay in business and your neighbors to be able to stay in their homes. Local initiatives have immediate effect on our lives. So we need to get to know who is going to be leading us heading into the next couple of years.


    Travis Stovall believes he is that guy for my hometown, Gresham. He might be right, Travis is a scholar, has a business that helps people find themselves and be able to better deal with others, and is quite possibly one of the most personable people that you will ever meet.


    I originally invited him onto the show because he has a company called eRep (https://erep.com) that offers something called a CVI (Core Values Index) score which does an incredibly astute job of defining the traits and proficiencies for people. Seriously, it blew my mind, and highlighted for me my biggest strengths and made me aware of the things that I could use help with. Go to https://whatsmyCVI.com and take the 5-minute test and see what you get, I bet it is remarkably. accurate! Then, when I found out that he was going to jump into local politics, I thought it was a perfect time to see how something like the CVI could help someone navigate the different personalities and proficiencies of running a city. You can find out more about his quest for the top seat in Gresham at https://www.travisstovall.com


    Travis is a really entertaining human, has great stories, and listening to him just feels like you are speaking to someone who has a real grasp on the world. Oh, and we also record a sketch based on a true story.


    Sketch: “Pets to the MAX!”

    Ed Wynn | Author Trying to Make Political Discussions Great Again

    Ed Wynn | Author Trying to Make Political Discussions Great Again

    Remember back to all of those really civil, insightful, and mind-expanding political discussions at Thanksgiving dinner? No? Because they don’t exist—at least not yet.


    Ed Wynn has spent the last 3 decades trying to help governments and companies find fixes to their problems. He is qualified to do so too, because he is really smart. Ed graduated summa c*m laude at the University of Illinois and magna c*m laude in law at Georgetown. Throw in the fact that he is a Truman Presidential Scholar and you can see why people are so interested in having him find solutions!


    The one thing Ed is not is a political insider, and his new book, “We The People” is his attempt to fix political discourse in America by laying out the blueprint to having discussions with your family during Thanksgiving. It’s worth the read just to be able to get through the evening not trying to strangle your uncle! On a personal note, I think this is the gateway to having some real discussions about heavy subjects without anyone blowing a gasket, and the book even includes TL;DR sections at the very beginning for those of us who want to be more enlightened, but also have a fantasy football team to manage.


    My one regret… I should have asked him more about his biking adventure. If you would like to hear more about it, please let me know. I am certain Ed would be willing to go more in-depth with that. (I really do feel bad that I didn’t go more into that, I was so excited to talk about talking)

    Claire Malkie | Risk-Taker and Political Motivator for the “Meh” Crowd

    Claire Malkie | Risk-Taker and Political Motivator for the “Meh” Crowd

    Have you ever just picked up and moved to a big, metropolitan city you have never visited on a whim? How about deciding one day that you need to thrust your fellow generation into informed political discourse? I’m pretty sure you haven’t done either of those things. You are about to meet someone who has.


    Claire Malkie grew up in Virginia and studied classical acting at Hofstra University. After graduating, someone suggested moving to Chicago and, without skipping a beat, she jumped at the opportunity. Arriving in Chicago ready to tackle the stage, she soon realized that the opportunities were pretty limited, but there were tons of opportunities to do improv. So, she headed back to improv school and started learning and performing at Comedy Court and has worked at a number of festivals.


    Overhearing a conversation from a peer that included “I don’t really understand politics, so I don’t want to get involved”, Claire realized that she could help change that attitude, which was important to her because she realized that she had the same attitude. To remedy that disinterest, Claire now co-writes and hosts the podcast “Sit Still, Look Opinionated” (https://sit-still-look-opinionated.simplecast.com) which is not just informative and non-biased, but it is also downright funny as she and her co-writer come up with fantastic jokes about the headlines that deserve to be on late-night talk shows. I highly recommend checking it out, whether you are in the know, or are trying to be, or don’t care… because you should.


    Have a completely free audiobook without ANY obligation other than downloading it read by none-other than myself! Get a copy of “Snapshots” a great collection of short stories that I narrated! All you have to do is message the show at sketchcomedypodcastshow@gmail.com and I will send you a code! I won’t even keep your email address, I’m just really excited to hear what you think!

    Dan Ram | Event MC, TEDx Speaker & Lion Attack Survivor

    Dan Ram | Event MC, TEDx Speaker & Lion Attack Survivor

    When you were a kid and went out for a walk, you might have attracted mosquitos or flies. Not Dan Ram. Dan attracted Lions.


    Dan Ram is an accidental event master of ceremonies, has given TEDx talks 5 times and can even show you how to get yourself doing the same thing as a coach. He has met celebrities of all sorts, including being on-stage with Barak Obama, who actually remembered his name even if Dan mispronounced his.


    We hear about Dan’s childhood run-in with a giant kitty, which is only one of four near death experiences he has had. We get to hear how he accidentally found success through a massive failure, which has led to hundreds of speaking engagements, TEDx talks, and has even been an advisor to the Irish Prime Minister.


    When not touring the globe MCing events or giving talks, Dan helps others live their lives to their fullest through coaching, and you can find out more about that at iamdanram.com.


    This week’s sketch: “Should I Shake, or Should I Go?”

    Frank King | Comedian, TED Speaker & Suicidal Superhero

    Frank King | Comedian, TED Speaker & Suicidal Superhero

    Frank King is always on the verge of commiting suicide. It is a feeling that has plagued him since he was young, passed down from previous generations. When faced with a problem, Frank always sees an option a lot of people do not see, killing himself.


    Where most would see this as a detriment, Frank has turned suicide into a lucrative career as a comedian, public speaker and TED Talker. As The Mental Health Comedian, Frank confronts the standard taboos associated with suicide and speaks openly about it, letting people know that these feelings are not just theirs and creating a dialog that allows people to get the help that they need.


    On a personal note, this episode could not have come at a better time. Though you may not hear it in my voice, I was desperately struggling with these feelings myself, and it was because of this discussion that I was able to get help for myself. Frank, in his talking about ending one’s own life, actually helped me overcome those feelings in myself.


    Of course I need to put out a warning, this episode dives pretty deeply into depression, mental illness and, of course, suicide. My suggestion, don’t be afraid to confront it. Knowing that there are others that struggle helps. Knowing that you can use it as a super power is incredibly empowering.


    If you are feeling those feelings, then please do the world a favor and call 800 273 8255. You are worthwhile and the world is a better place with you. I think so, you listen to my show and I think you are incredibly special. Thank you.


    You can hear and see more of Frank on his website: thementalhealthcomedian.com where you can listen to his TED talks, subscribe to his podcast and even hire him to come and do a keynote for your company.


    This was one of my favorite episodes, it literally saved my life.


    We also recorded the sketch: “Not the X-Men”

    Dune DiCarnage | Your Friendly, Neighborhood Human Cyborg - Part 2

    Last episode we heard about Dune’s birthday party while he was in the hospital being a quadraplegic (seriously, it was better than any of your birthday parties) and what got him there.


    This week, we hear about how much Dune’s doctors were complete dicks to him, and why it worked. We also hear about dating while immobilized, being in movies and why Zion from “The Matrix” was filled with a bunch of nipple-necked cliques.

captin kreepie ,

Awesome show guys!!!

Love the show guys! WE love sketch comedy!!! You guys have really good radio voices you guys come through amazingly!!!!

PostManOnTheHill ,

ADD IT TO THE MIXTAPE!

This show is not like any other I’ve come across yet. I have an overwhelming want to sit down with Stuart & Alisha while they are writing an episode real bad – they clearly have a lot of fun and it comes through for a listener. As you might have guessed, this is a podcast chalk full of zany sketch comedy bits. The punchlines weren’t always what I expected (which was good!) and the production was insane (as in, “Hot damn this is well produced!”). Check em out!
