Hi! I'm Hoss Bossman. I'm a sometimes high school English teacher, former and occasionally current entertainment writer, musician-singer-song, YouTuber, and general man about town.

This podcast is about politics, social issues, pop culture, critical thinking, music, books, and whatever else I want to talk about on a given week. Probably other podcasts too. I sometimes have guests you may have heard of, often ones you haven't, and occasionally none at all.

    31 - A Hoss for the Holidays (not really a Christmas episode but super inspirational) | BabySode 1

    Murray Christmas everybody! I stayed up all night Christmas Eve to finish this episode in time to get it out Christmas Day for some reason. It’s not really Christmas themed, but I do recite Ray Bradbury’s amazing essay “The Joy of Writing,” which is sort of New Year’s resolution…y. Now get out there and be somebody!

    29 - COMEDY IS CANCELED - Analysis of Dave Chappelle's Last Special feat Philosopher King Ben Burgis

    29 - COMEDY IS CANCELED - Analysis of Dave Chappelle's Last Special feat Philosopher King Ben Burgis

    TL;DR::: Check out Ben Burgis on Twitter @BenBurgis, buy his books, and subscribe to his YouTube Channel (Ben Burgis) and also his fantastic podcast GIVE THEM AN ARGUMENT. Most recently, he had awesome leftist historian HARVEY J KAYE as his main guest, whom I love and would love to have on Breadsheet sometime to talk Thomas Paine, because he’s the only person I know of who talks up T-Paine as much as I do. Oooh, maybe he could do a thing where it doubles as something I could use with my students.
    Also go to www.hoss.fun for ALL YOUR HOSS NEEDS.
    Howdy from Hoss. AND Ben Burgis. This is Ben’s THIRD Breadsheet appearance (check out episodes 5,6, and 20 for his previous installments), and boy howdy, is it a sexy one. We mostly talk about Dave Chappelle’s new special—not exactly attacking or defending it, moreso analyzing the reaction to it. Very necessary disclaimer: we are but two cisgender hetero dude bros… hell, we’re not even comedians, unless you consider my “music” “comedic.” So our opinions are definitely skewed by our identities, privilege, etc—as anyone’s is, really— and of course it’s maybe a little “cringe,” as the kids say, to opine on the issue of trans acceptance and Chappelle’s s****y attitude without the input of a trans person. Which leads me to my next point: I also ask Mr. Burgis about something kinda niche—his fairly negative interactions with a lovely wildcard leftist streamer named ANDREA ROVENSKI. As he acknowledges, Ben may come off as a pinch condescending when talking about Andrea in this episode, but I think he makes some good points and he even expresses some nuance—namely that he was at least A LITTLE wrong about his interpretation and analysis of the January 6 Capitol Riots, which was the crux of he and Ms. Rovenski’s little feud. Anyway, let’s heal this divide, people. We need more love on the left. Ol’ Benny Burgz and Andrea would have a great discussion if they spoke, I think, so let’s all come together and be friends.
    Anyway, also, Andrea, please come on Breadsheet and give me your perspective on the Chappelle special and also let’s make fun of Jackson Hinkle, a dumb dumb whom you just debated. Okay this is way too long of a description. Dave Chappelle’s special was kinda lazy and boring and ignorant in my opinion, and I’m not sure I express that well in this interview. I’m a people pleaser so I’m bad at expressing disagreement with my guests. I’m also kinda gullible, which is why they call me the JOE ROGAN OF THE LEFT.
    Follow Ben Burgis on Twitter @BenBurgis and subscribe to his YouTube Channel and subscribe to his podcast GIVE THEM AN ARGUMENT, pretty pretty please. Also buy his books GIVE THEM AN ARGUMENT and CANCELING COMEDIANS WHILE THE WORLD BURNS, both published by Zero Books. Can’t wait for that Christopher Hitchens book too!! I was supposed to record audiobooks of those other two books of his but I got a job right when I was getting started on that. Maybe the Hitchens book will be out next summer and I can do that one then. Oh yeah, ol’ BENNY BURGZ also debated Charlie Kirk between recording this chat and my releasing it, so make sure and check that out ON BEN BURGIS’s YoUTube Channel. It’s great. Charlie Kirk sucks.
    Follow me on twitter @hoss_bossman, subscribe to the HOSS BOSSMAN YouTube Channel, rate and review this podcast (it really helps!) and find all that and more shit at www.hoss.fun. Love ya.
    Anyway, here’s Ben Burgis, THE PHILOSOPHER KING’s theme, and also his THIRD Breadsheet interview.
    I’m gonna ride out on a K-Macks song for this episode, so go to thvekmacks.bandcamp.com or find The K-Macks on Spotify and Apple Music if you like it!

    28 - Remembering Tom T. Hall with Poetry/Cold Brew/Advice King Chris Crofton

    28 - Remembering Tom T. Hall with Poetry/Cold Brew/Advice King Chris Crofton

    Listen to Tom T. Hall and check out Chris Crofton and go to https://www.hoss.fun to see more Hoss things. I don’t have much time to write a description so I’m gonna just copy and paste the descri[ption from a YouTube clip I put up of Chris Crofton earlier this year, which is why this description doesn’t make any sense AFTER you get past this list of Tom T. Hall songs I want you to go listen to now:
    I Washed My Face in the Morning Dew
    Hang ‘em All (Get the Guilty)
    America the Ugly
    Turn it on, Turn it on, Turn it on
    I Want to See the Parade
    The Man Who Hated Freckles
    100 Children
    Do you have friends or family members with bad brains? What if it's not their brains that are bad, but the information therein? Chris Crofton tells a simple but powerful story about having his world rocked by a kind person who was willing to sit down with him and explain why his ideas were bad / dumb / wrong. Yeah, right-wingers are infuriatingly and stubbornly wrong much of the time, and it's understandable if we lose our patience from time to time (I just lost my patience with a ding-dong who was spreading dangerous lies about COVID so I'm really just writing this part of the description to make me feel better. Anyway, Chris Crofton FRICKIN' RULES.
    This awesome edition of Chris's Nashville Scene column ADVICE KING pairs nicely with this clip. Here it is written:
    https://www.nashvillescene.com/arts-culture/comedy/article/21146329/advice-king-i-dont-understand-my-grandchilds-genderneutral-pronouns
    ...and here he is reading it on Instagram video (Crofton's IG is @thecroftonshow, go subscribe to him to see more): https://www.instagram.com/tv/CMabkZxBtVS/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
    Can people learn compassion? How do we cultivate the humility required to learn from our mistakes and recognize our ignorance? What is the guy who opens old cans on YouTube gonna do when he runs out of old cans to open? These. These are the questions.
    Chris Crofton is a true renaissance man: musician, comedian, poet, singer, songwriter, meme generator, beacon of light and humanity in this dark dark world, and now, GUEST ON BREADSHEET! How exciting! What are we doing here? What is my purpose? ANSWER: to spread light and love, a la Chris Crofton.

    27 - Droppin' Bread Bombs w/ LIBERATION ICON Matt Baume

    27 - Droppin' Bread Bombs w/ LIBERATION ICON Matt Baume

    I am so sorry about everything about this episode EXCEPT the amazing guest, queer liberation icon Matt Baume. His YouTube channel is amazing, and you should probably be watching his videos about queer representation and pop culture instead of reading this description. You think the intro to this episode is too long? I EDITED IT DOWN FROM 40 RAMBLING MINUTES. I'm talking about the Rode mic competition that I was 100% certain I was going to win. Spoiler: I didn't. But hey.... Matt Baume is a KING!!! Check out his stuff down there:

    Vote for Me: Why Did I Just Publish a 2-Minute Podcast Episode? | A Breadsheet Explanation | TeenySode?

    VOTE FOR ME TO WIN THE COOL RODE AUDIO GEAR AT https://myrodecast.com/listen/entry/4738 please and thank you! It'd be a BREADSHEET miracle!

    Short answer: I entered a contest, I worked real hard on those 2 minutes, and I thought y'all SHEETHEADZ might enjoy it as well. Longer answer (just copied and pasted from the entry's episode's description):

    Howdy sheetheads! This episode of Breadsheet is the way it is because it's an entry into a 2-minute podcast contest thing that the Australian audio gear company RODE is putting on. I really wanna win, so go to www.hoss.fun or visit my Twitter profile at twitter.com/hoss_bossman and go to the link in my pinned tweet to vote for me. As I post this, the link to vote for me hasn't been generated yet, because I haven't officially entered the contest, so I'll try and remember to come back and update this description with a link... so there might be one below by the time you're reading this. There's a people's choice category, which is what you'd be voting for, but the other winners are gonna be JUDGED by some podcasting big wigs. Wish me luck! Or that I break a leg. Showbiz... break a leg, I think is what you say.

    I'm posting a special other Microsode of BREADSHEET that'll contain this 2-minute podcast, more in the way of explanation, PLUS a micro-monologue from ya boi HOSS BOSSMAN AND a new A MINOR BLUES JAM song. I have some FUNTASTIC guests coming up, so make sure and come back REAL soon. Mwah.

Zen Pod

For a disgraced English teacher, Hoss certainly is great at explaining some really neat ideas. Listening to this pod feels like a chill hang with your musician buddy that has a heart a gold and is always moving from one good idea to the next.

Fantastic entertainer and fun personality.

Great podcast

Great podcast, hoss is the boss! Listening to it while I’m painting my ceiling and it’s kept me sane.

Hoss is Boss

I've always loved bread, so this podcast was a no-brainer for me
