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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
