Episode 2-04 Josh & Rich “New Hampshire’s Favorite Sons”

Hey folks, this is our favorite episode we’ve done yet. Not just because I get to talk to friends I hadn’t seen in over a decade (who are successful in their own right), but also because it’s the most concise episode (unedited!). I met Josh and Rich when they were in college, through a mutual friend. At the time they were doing comic strips for the school newspaper and filming a slasher movie (made for $100) and put me in the movie and in one of their comic strips (below). They’ve moved on since to create an anthology book of strips (The Fat Squad) and a serial comic book (The Red Claw). They also do a successful food blog (The Fat Guy Food Blog). We sat down to talk after a theatrical screening of “The Killer”, which was somewhat of a reunion, at least for me, with all of these great creative people. Not only are these guys without a doubt hilarious and entertaining, but listening to this podcast after the fact totally compels me to check out all of their current works!

Episode 2-02 “Spic and Span (part 1)”


My friend Glimar (Glee-marrr) talks to me about society, the class war, and how immigrants are viewed in America. As she is Puerto-Rican, I thought it fitting to play two songs by Spanish-Speaking Punk Bands:

De Nalgas – Apaga La Television
Union 13 – Roots Radicals (Rancid Cover)
