    #220 - Isaac Simpson and Josh give Thanks on Black Friday

    Writer, podcast, and provocateur Isaac Simpson is here, and we start off by talking Thanksgiving recipes and Turkey hacks. Get your sundial ready, because these brines take centuries. Josh has thrown out the recipe book, and starts telling people how to “season to taste.” Josh thinks food blogs are getting more gratuitous than ography, and some things (like making your own cinnamon rolls) can’t be unseen. Getting groceries delivered for Thanksgiving seems like a great idea, until none of it shows up. We talk about Lisa Bloom, and the startling realization that all lawyers are still lawyers. We talk about Isaac’s podcast “Not a Huge Fan” w/Charles Disney, and how Charles loves to stir s**t. We talk about likability in comedy and whether or not it’s actually important. We talk about societies quickness to labeling, vs. truly researching, testing, and understanding problems. We talk about the recent rash of Hollywood harassment allegations - are they all good intentioned? What are the possible side effects? Enjoy this long episode that would’ve been longer if we didn’t stop recording for an hour.

    #219 - Adam Yenser and Josh join the Hungry Crowd

    In one of our longest episodes yet, Josh sits down with Comedian and Ellen staff writer Adam Yenser, also known as Kevin the Cashier. We start off talking about Hungry Crowd, Toluca Lake’s newest cafe/restaurant, despite the unwanted adult supervision. Josh hits peak “Larry David” in his nuanced restaurant complains, so take note. We talk about comedy battlegrounds in Stand-Up, Sketch, Improv, and TV writer’s rooms in today’s politically charged climate. Josh brags about his ballin’ in unit laundry, which is the highest luxury in Los Angeles - and also leads to the classic “laundry room fight club” story. We discuss people’s lack of compassion in general, but particularly in LA traffic. Josh shares one of his all time favorite Uber stories. Adam talks about his climb through the ranks in the industry, which highlights a crazy time in late night TV history. We talk comedy, controversy, influences, and technique (which everyone loves). Josh is excited that white guys are the new black guys. We dive into comedy in politics and politics in comedy, and what it’s like being libertarian or conservative in today’s landscape. Oh, and if you want Weinstein talk, get ready. Could there ever be a conservative SNL or Daily Show? Let’s Discuss!

    #218 - Kenny Wiggins (KennyWiggins60) and Josh hit the Carving Board

    Los Angeles Chargers starting Right Guard Kenny Wiggins is here, and we get into sports really fast. We talk about the common misconceptions of NFL players. We talk about Kenny’s story from undrafted Free Agent to starter over 7 years (which is pretty incredible). We talk about the growing concern of CTE in the NFL, and some of the misconceptions of the general public about player safety and general safety. We talk about who eats the most on the team, shocker - it’s not who you’d expect. We go down the rabbit hole of food, and this one turns into food commentary. Kenny had the perfect restaurant concept stolen from him, and we’re not happy about it. Josh shares stories about rude fans and unexpected hecklers. We check out the Carving Board in Burbank, and talk about what separates the greats from the not-so-greats. Also, bring back sit down pizza places! We wrap up talking about “Last Chance U” on Netflix, and how it compares to coaching throughout sports. We also talk about heated NFL rivalries between players. Enjoy!

    #217 - Sam Tripoli (@samtripoli) and Josh Eat Breakfast at Basecamp

    Sam Tripoli is here, and we get right into it. I’d attempt to make show notes but this one is all over the place. We talk Basecamp, a local hipster breakfast place in Josh’s neighborhood. We start out talking about the calls we missed over the years. We start off by naming names of the worst people in comedy, as well as some of the best. Sam shares his Golden Corral PTSD. We recap what it takes to be a “Hollywood Fat,” and when it gets to be Josh’s turn. We discuss the magic of 4-dick chess, and how it is best played. We talk about the pack mentality of the internet and how nobody makes sense. Sam invents Christmas Cake, and its better than you could ever imagine. We discuss how comedians terrify the entertainment industry. Oh yeah, and we discuss Josh’s recent twitter beef. You know which one.

    #216 - Tony Vinh (@TonyVinh) and Josh eat Ray's BBQ (for real this time)

    Tony Vinh is back, and we pick up where we left off talking Ray’s BBQ - spoiler alert: It’s the best. We talk about great food documentaries on Amazon Prime, Fires in Burbank, and Josh’s history with former Strikeforce fighter Brett “Da Grim” Rogers. We devolve into entitlement around human behavior, and how technology’s instant gratification has raised our expectations. We talk about the new documentary “What the Health,” and how insane some of the claims are, and the problem with scientific studies and research habits. Lots of good stuff in this one. Enjoy!
