77 Game of Thrones’ Last Season and Fandom

I figured I'd add my two cents to the fervor around the finale of Game of Thrones. Plus some life updates!

76 Radio, Suicide, & Stand-Up

As I brave a hideous man-cold, I talk about some exciting news (Dead Weight Citizens Brigade is gonna be on the radio!), and podcast pitches. I also ruminate about suicide, irrational guilt, the tragic and upsetting loss of the great Brody Stevens, and the aftermath, as well as having moments of clarity and joy in stand-up comedy. Enjoy!

73 Liam Neeson’s Knee’s on His Niece’s Son’s Nissan, Son

In another late podcast, I found myself in mired in an emotional fog of frustration from a very weird week. On top of that, the article of Liam Neeson came out and the ramifications and debate surrounding his actions nearly forty years ago kicked me into such irritation that I felt it worth talking about. Still dealing with the bullshit I talked about on the last episode, i.e. the challenges of being a mediocre creative, is mostly why this episode is so late, so I will have this and two others within a couple days. I think Neeson's story is a teachable moment and something real and human that's been twisted. My usual problems with internet journalism and social media immediacy come up again, and I tell a story from just five-and-a-half years ago in my own life. Enjoy. Also, I just learned in posting articles for this, that Liam's nephew died just weeks ago. My condolences.
