    #100: THE FINAL EPISODE!

    #100: THE FINAL EPISODE!

    THE UNKNOWN GUEST AKA SAVING THE BEST (& WORST) FOR LAST







































    Yep, this is it. We planned for 100 episodes, we committed to 100 episodes, and we've cut 100 damned good episodes. Well, at least 8 of them were damned good....the rest ran the gamut from terrible to passably decent. But every single one featured a fantastic guest well worth your attention. So what's next? Dunno. SOMETHING, that's for sure. Probably salons. Time to get people connected in the real world again. Enough podcasts. Enough social media. Here's to getting dirty in the flesh. Dirty minds. Dirty ideas. We're going to need to filthy if we plan to clean up the muck of our shared world. :)

    #99: AMELIA BOONE + RYAN VAN DUZER

    Amelia, Ryan & Tod Offend 96% of Humanity + a great meet cute story







































    AMELIA BOONE. RYAN VAN DUZER. You know who they are. If you don't, you won't learn that much about them in this episode, because we don't really talk about the things that they've worked so darned hard to be known (at least partially) for. Instead, this episode is more about two super nice people who have come together in a great way (via this podcast...taking full credit here) to complement one another seamlessly and add even more wattage to their individual super shine. Yeah, I just typed that. Due to the last episode's rant against gun control, we lost our My Pillow sponsorship, meaning we couldn't afford to pay the rent on our podcast studio in Steve Bannon's garage. You might notice a slight dip in audio quality as a result, but rest assured we'll have it fixed by our final episode, #100. As an aside, it is entirely possible that during out time at Bannon's garage, we collected enough of Steve Bannon's hair and skin dust that we think we're close, with the help of our Chinese sponsor Xiami, to creating a cloned baby Bannon, who we plan on raising as super nicely as possible in a forward-thinking effort to create an anti-MAGA warrior with all the smarmy smarts of his progenitor and all the heart and empathy of Don Cheadle. Stay tuned!

    #98: CRAIG SWEENEY | OVER 50 & BADASS

    #98: CRAIG SWEENEY | OVER 50 & BADASS

    ON GROWING B/OLDER, WISER & MORE PASSIONATE THAN EVER







































    CRAIG SWEENEY. He's done the corporate thing. He's built successful businesses. He grew up in an era where 50-year-olds were looked at like half-dead zombies whose greatest daily achievements were getting that much closer to a senior discount at the movie theater. But it's 2022 and 50-somethings are kicking ass in every facet of society, refusing to go quietly into the night. Craig realized there's a need for a community that emboldens Gen Xers to feel and own their age as a badge of pride.... and so Over50Badass.com was born.







    Some Things You WILL ABSOLUTELY Learn About







    > Who and why is Craig Sweeney? 







    > What is Over50Badass? 







    > The need for intergenerational conversations and teams







    > What's so bad about getting older?







    > Are middle-aged men the world’s biggest assholes?







    > Respect vs. Politeness







    > More hate on LeBron James and the LA Lakers :)

    #95: MADISON STEWART WANTS U 2 STOP KILLING SHARKS

    because they're awesome & eating them will make UR dick fall off







    "I work for sharks, they are everything to me, and my story is one of loss at the hands of environmental injustice, and I work to take back what I believe is mine, and that is a future in an ocean that has sharks. The most important career I can hope to be involved in, is the protection of this planet, and thus my own future. I want a future with sharks in it, this is the end I am fighting for. I have seen a change in my lifetime, I am not an activist, or a conservationist, I am just a person, who refuses to believe they will lose their home in their lifetime, at the hands of governments and worldwide neglect of this species. Not now, nor has it ever been impossible for one person to make a difference."































    Listen in and learn a whole lot about what YOU can do to help Madison help the sharks who, you knew, help our oceans survive which, you know, help us survive. So, consider this episode a self-help episode... even better than all those podcasts that go on and on about (neo) Stoicism and libertarian b******t. :)
