Today on the show we have Dulcinea Pitagora, MA, LMSW. She's a therapist who specializes in alternative sexualities, currently pursing a PHD in Human Sexuality, and the co-organizer of the first ever AltSexNYC conference, which you can (and should) learn about here. We discuss the commonly held misconception that being into kink is caused by trauma and how that relates to the idea of the sad clown in comedy. Enjoy, and check back soon!

Mike Lawrence, hilarious comedian, 7 year McDonald's Survivor and Co-Host of the Nerd of Mouth show is on the podcast.

Check him out at http://mikelawrencecomedy.com and http://cavecomedyradio.com/nerdofmouth

About Mike (note: they should update his about section on his website to include his recent appearance on Conan)

Mike Lawrence is a comedian born and raised in South Florida. He began doing comedy as a way to escape the dullness of his job at the McDonald's Drive-Thru, and quickly fell in love with it. He moved to New York in 2007, where he could write about all of his miserable life experiences from a safe distance. He has since performed at the New York Comic-Con (A dream come true), was nominated for the Emerging Comic Award at the 2009 ECNY Awards, and was featured in Time Out New York. He was one of the "New Faces" at the 2010 Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. He most recently made his television debut on John Oliver's New York Stand up Show on Comedy Central.

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.
