Comedian Nick Youssef brings you a podcast that celebrates the many differences and similarities which make us all Americans. This podcast is made for you and me.
#27 A Whole New World w/ Jessica Lewis
I ran onto my friend Jessica Lewis at Maru Coffee in Los Feliz. I asked her what book she was reading and she said Gender Trouble," followed by a story about her very recent spiritual and sexual awakening. I stopped her mid story and said come on my podcast and tell me all about it. Not only is Jessica's story compelling, she exudes a cheerfulness, positivity and most importantly open mindedness that is seriously lacking in today's cultural and political landscape. This episode is along one, but worth it. It follows Jessica through her religious upbringing in the south and southwest US, years of home schooling, music school in Atlanta and the move to Los Angeles to pursue music all while struggling with questions about her sexual orientation that go against everything she has ben taught to believe her entire life. And don't worry, there is a very happy ending.

Part 2 is here! Wendi and I get into the new world she unexpectedly found herself in: sex work. And it's not the kind you're thinking of so take off those judgment caps (if that's a thing) and check this episode out with an open mind. Let Wendi know what you think by following her on social media:

Nick America #23 Wendi Starling Pt. 1
Wendi Starling is a good friend and hands down one of the funniest people I know. We make each other laugh so much and this episode is full of ridiculous tangents that spin off of very serious topics. Our comedic chemistry is so in tune we can talk about really dark shit and joke about it moments later. This is a two parter because we didn't even scratch the surface of what we were meaning to get to, which will be in part two next week.

I’ve been following Nick at the comedy store (figuratively not literally) for a couple years now and he is consistently one of my favorite comedians. New to this podcast but enjoy the energy and stories. Dude is down to earth and hilarious.
