    BLACK VEIL BRIDES drummer Christian Coma talks with Joe about dating unstable people, getting food poisoning (and shitting his pants in epic Dumb and Dumber fashion) an hour before a date and the many struggles and sacrifices he endured that keep him humble even when performing in front of 90,000 people.

    "Craigslist Meltdown" - Alex Oliver (re-release)

    Stay away, Craigslist! That's what Alex Oliver learned after unknowingly scamming college girls out of salon memberships and selling baseball cards to a sketchy stranger four hours away, all so he could pay a month's rent. Thankfully he didn't die, but he did have his one and only breakdown in the process. Originally aired May 16, 2018.

    #119: "D.U.FLY and Why" - Lila Hart

    Comedian Lil Hart didn't get a DUI, she got a DU FLY. She talks with Joe about getting arrested on a flight pre-takeoff for being drunk and the aftermath that followed. She also talks about growing up with spina bifida, a disease that stunted her growth and could have left her in a wheelchair. Thankfully she's healthy, happy and hiking these days but it wasn't easy.

Way Cheaper Than Therapy

Listening to people talk about the things they’ve been through and how they’ve come out of them helps me feel better about my dumpster fire life. Joe Flanders has made me smile in every episode, and I look forward to listening to more episodes in 2020!

A winner!

This guy is a talented interviewer. The episodes are funny, but sometimes they really get you thinking about the issues that people deal with. Listen every week!

I’ve lol’d a few times

I found this podcast by complete chance and I love it. I don’t usually know the guests, never heard of the host, but I laugh so hard each episode that I keep coming back. Bravo, sir.
