Mother's Day is around the corner and we need to honor our mothers. I understand that moms can be difficult at times but that doesn't mean we need to be mean to our mothers. In this episode I talk about my mom, a former friend of mine and how he treated his mom hence the title "Shut Up Linda!"
There should be a special place in hell for you if you say shut up to your mother.

Happy 420 everyone! And if you are against marijuana, happy 420 to you too. Today I talk about me smoking week before a show and how I died miserably. It wasn't weeds fault, it was my fault for smoking before a show. I also talk about how police officers need to meditate and smoke some weed after a shift. Don't you think police officers would be a little less stressed if they smoked out just a bit?
No Chet today but David Yang Mang was back up. Thank you David Yang Mang, you were hilarious.

I wasn't really planning on having a podcast on why men should never break the man code, but in this episode it came out organically.

We apologize for the technical difficulties! For some reason, we couldn't be in sync with our bells and whistles. But that's okay! We mess up, and we move on!
Speaking of moving on, we have a wonderful guest today, Comedian David Lew. David talks/rants/gets angry about my previous episode (thanks for listening, David, I appreciate it). He also talks about comedy life, battling cancer-nope, not battling. David likes to say he's "stroking cancer." He also talks about his comedy show coming, called "Still Alive at 35," which will be at Tommy T's in Pleasanton this Wednesday, March 21st.
Listen to this episode, it's a lot of fun! Every time David snorts, you need to take a shot or a hit!

It's not an easy accomplishment. People have dedicated their lives to making film. But I don't need to watch rich people talk about rich people winning awards.
I love movies and I congratulate all the winners from this years Oscars. It's not easy of what they have accomplished. But out of the 90 years of Oscar award shows, 36 of those years have never been watched by me. I just watch the highlights and pretend to know what I'm talking about at gatherings. I found an interesting video that is already floating around the internet about one of the movies that won an award.
Nope not gonna tell ya. You need listen to this podcast to find out.

It's time for us to come together and make some changes in the world. It's a strange time when kids are giving 10 minute speeches about gun control that many adults can't comprehend.

Hailing from the great city of Chicago we are very thankful to have my friend Brett Walkow as a guest on the show. He talks about why he left LA, old road stories, and of course Chet Jackson our house announcer was actually in the studio. You are going to love this episode and make sure you go see him headline February 9th-11th at Laughs Unlimited in Sacramento.
Also I had a chance to finally say thank you to everyone who voted for my commercial to be played during the Super Bowl. I love my fans and I'm very grateful to have you.

Well I tried. I mean I really tried. I tried working at a day job, I had my sight set on just working, making some money and see where this goes. The job itself was great, super chill and I was good at my job. Every day I came in on time and worked my butt off. Unfortunately, this job was not worth it. Way too many red flags from day 1. I always go with my gut and my gut says " Get The F OUT"
Listen to this episode and find out what red flags made me leave this job!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you are all enjoying 2018. I know I am. I am very proud of this episode. My producer, Dub2 (now known as El Doble Dos) and I were very lucky to have my second real guest on the show, Emmy/Murrow Award winning journalist, writer, and executive producer Cristina Mendonsa. We learned about her podcast, "A Fresh Agenda", what she has accomplished and where she plans on moving next. But, most importantly, she interviewed Hank Hill, from the TV show "King of the Hill". The interview got a little bit derailed when Cristina mentioned politics, but Hank Hill gathered his emotions and the interviewed continued. Take a listen and enjoy.
Podcast of the day is "A Fresh Agenda" hosted by Cristina Mendonsa.
