Myq Kaplan and I finish up our conversation covering a range of topics and dropping a pool of names. Below are links to videos by some of the folks Myq and I talk about in this week's podcast. I've tried to instersperse each of my intellectual heros with a comedian so that the self-righteousness is balanced out with deflating buffoonery. 

Shane Mauss

Chris Hedges

Emo Philips

Peter Singer

Doug Stanhope:

Howard Zinn:

Part one of my podcast with Myq Kaplan. Words! Hear me bounce back and forth between display and discourse in my indigestibly indulgent self and self-abnegating intro! Find a dictionary and tell me what I just said, or better yet, throw it at my head.

Glam the man, flight the flower, Moccupy Mall Street and all that jizz. Listen to me trying way too hard when I run into two other comics in the midst of the stirrings of a global anti-corporate movement.

Joining me in this episode are John Knefel (he speaks first) and later Brent Schmidt. John and his sister Molly can be heard on their own thrice weekly podcast (stop making me look bad guys), Radio Dispatch at 

We discuss the roots of the movement, talk about pretty protest girls, and interview someone who is interviewing us.

Had file corruption issues editing this so hopefully it'll go up smoothly.
