In honor of 9/11, I did not podcast on that day. I had a moment of silence and refused to watch those horrific videos. That's what we need to start doing. Stop trying to relive 9/11 and just shut up and remember. Me and my producer Cory also talked about violent video games that parents need to monitor, Joel Osteen, and Natural Disasters. Podcast of the day was Hellbent for Horror.

Well I can't believe it has been one year! Who would have thought that I would stick to being a podcaster? And I love it a lot! It has helped in my stand-up career, and today we talk about rape - not pro rape, not making fun of it, but making fun that we need celebrities to tell us that it is not ok to make fun of rape. I also talk about Paul McCartney, U2, and once again, H2Homeless. If it is hot outside, go hydrate the homeless - #H2Homeless.

Podcast of the day: The Ross Report.

Yes.. It's hot. Yes It's Summer Time.. And yes people need to stop complaining about the damn heat... How about people stop posting on social media about the heat and actually do something about it.. Such as the return of #H2homeless. It's a pretty simple movement. Go outside in the heat for a few hours, find homeless people and give them water. It will be more rewarding than just complaining online. I also talk about the process of moving and having patience and what not to do when you are a principal of a school.

Podcast of the week is Random Thoughts by Robert Omoto.

In this episode our house announcer Chet Jackson talks to me in a passive aggressive way. I HATE PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR. If you have a problem of me just say it, don't beat around the bush, don't leave behind clues.. just tell me what's wrong and we will figure it out. Just recently I had a gig at a cop convention.. only one table out of 300 liked me. Yes, it was a bad show but at least I was honest in telling them why I did not like performing for them.

Thank you, Nick-I mean, Mr. Nolte, for your time.

Today is opening day for baseball season, a great time to admire your team, enjoy the ball park and of course drink. Drink to have fun, don't drink because your team has left such as the Las Vegas Raiders. If you drink to have fun, make sure you have a buddy with you, because if you don't you can end up stranded on the island of Crete. Why did I mention the island of Crete? Well in this episode I talked about my glorious drinking days while in the Navy, and how I almost ended up dead on the island of Crete. Drink Responsibly!

Just do your job. That's it. When you are paid to do a job, just do it. Drama free, no whining, no complaining, just work. And if you hate that job, find another one that will make you happy.

February is a stacked month. We got Super Bowl, President's Day, Lincoln's Birthday, on TOP of Black history month. Not to mention, it's the shortest month of the year. Is there something wrong with this picture? Absolutely! There's everything wrong with February. It's a marketing machine that forces us to celebrate holidays that we don't want. We don't want Lady Gaga at the Super Bowl. We don't want to celebrate Valentine's Day. And we want Black history to be a part of American history. Period. You should learn from that, Sean Spicer.

Your mother, your sister, your daughter, your niece, your girlfriend, your wife and to some, your mistress all deserve the same respect as men. It's time for men to take a step down and have women take charge of this planet. It's called Mother Earth for a reason. So take over ladies and march forward.

In this episode I talk about my experience at the Women's March, I talk about the education secretary nominee, Betsy DeVos - 2+2 is not 3 Betsy and answer a question properly. Just listen and you will understand why I am so angry with her. Don't forget, my podcast of the day: "2 Dumb 2 Tame" with Mia Pinchoff.

So men, man up and listen to this episode. Women, multitask and share this episode with everyone you know.

Are you mad about Mariah Carey's performance? Are you mad about Ronda Rousey losing in 43 seconds? Are you mad that Flint, MI doesn't have clean water? If you are mad about the first two and not the third, you're a Kardashian.

Happy New Year and welcome back #MMites, I've missed you! I hope each and every one of you had a great Christmas/Holiday/break/whatever-you-want-to-call-it time off. If you read the paragraph above, then you already know what I am going to be talking about in this episode - except the Kardashians. You will laugh from beginning to end. And notice I have never, ever said that in any episode until now.

Did I set the bar for 2017?  You're damn right! So enjoy the beginning of the end of Me, Mikeself & I. Next year, I'll have a great comeback. And everyone loves a comeback story.
