Don't really know what to say about the events that took place this past week. Of course that doesn't stop us from trying,but man - what a fucked up situation.
The first portion of this episode is the boys doing a remote podcast from each of their respective homes (California, New York, Georgia) discussing the protests in Charlottesville and just Nazi Scum in general.
The second portion is an interview with the hilarious Mona Shaikh in Trae's Burbank guest house (Friend of the show David Smalley also sits in with us!)
Mona is a comedian who was raised in Pakistan - so yeah, religion gets brought up. Don't wanna give too much away because this is one you are gonna wanna hear for yourselves!
Mona Shaikh combines a South Asian sensibility with Americanized values cherishing the First Amendment—the right to bear big mouths. And her fresh, fearless, free speech has raised eyebrows. With her offbeat sense of humor Shaikh is a tightrope walker striving to maintain equilibrium while dealing with conflicting forces. With half of her life spent in a prominent conservative Muslim household in Pakistan, and the other immersed with America’s entertainment and culture, Mona knew she was set out to break boundaries. Today Mona resides in Los Angeles, Calif., pursing her career as a comedian and actor while developing her upcoming One-Hour Special and Comedy TV series. She also made history by becoming the first Pakistani female Comedian to headline Hollywood Improv. Mona was most recently featured in Newsweek, The Guardian, LA Weekly, New York Post, Huffington Post, Washington Post and BBC. Mona recently headlined The Real Flava Comedy Club in Dubai and a show in Lisbon, Portugal. She recently got her own show and again made history at The World Famous Comedy Store in Los Angeles called Minority Reportz with a launch of sold-out shows.
Of course you all know David Smalley from his insanely popular podcast Dogma Debate. For more, click here!

For the first portion of this Podcast we sit down in Corey's hotel room in Pasadena to discuss Trae's redemption from a blackout drunk experience in Mexico, and how shitty all our teeth are followed by Drew telling one of the most riveting stories ever about his brief experience as an amateur dentist.
After all that lunacy, we are joined by Ian Harvie (From Transparent) and Jaye McBride to discuss Trump's Transgender ban in the military. Both Ian and Jaye are transgender, so we were able to get an extremely important side of the story and perspective on the issue.
Ian Harvie is an American stand-up comedian and actor who often references being a trans man in his performances. He is best known for his appearance on the television show Transparent. In 2017, transgender actors and actresses including Harvie (with the help of GLAAD and ScreenCrush) were part of a filmed letter to Hollywood written by Jen Richards, asking for more and improved roles for transgender people.
His latest special "May The Best Cock Win" can be found on Seeso

This week we were fortunate enough to record our first LIVE podcast, and even cooler, it was live from Politicon! Joining us we were lucky to have the extremely impressive Alison Lundergan Grimes (Seceretary of State in Kentucky)
We discussed being liberal in the south (You don't say?) How Democrats can reach working class Americans, and what we think Mitch McConnell smells like.
Alison Lundergan Grimes took Kentucky and the nation by storm when, at 35 years old, she ran for the United States Senate against Mitch McConnell. She made her campaign about standing up for women’s rights, veterans’ rights, workers’ rights, and human rights. Despite over $70 million spent against her, Alison kept the race neck-and-neck to the very end in one of the most conservative states in the nation. Recently re-elected to her second term as Kentucky’s Secretary of State, Alison is the youngest female secretary of state in the nation and the only remaining statewide elected female Democrat in the South. Alison is continuing to champion the ideal that’s at her core: every person deserves a fair shake and an equal chance.

Wheeler Walker Jr. is a country singer who, in our opinion, amongst the likes of Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, and Chris Stapleton (along with several others we mention in the podcast) is helping to save the type of country music that we hold near and dear to our heart... real country music.
In the interview with Wheeler, we cover topics like moving away from the south, breaking southern stereotypes, Chewbacca Mom desecrating The Grand Ole Opry, and the downfall of real country music as we know it.
Pre-Order his new album Ol' Wheeler now on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play for the insanely bullshittingly low price of $6.99... and also go give his 2 singles (Summers In Kentucky <which we play on the podcast> and Pussy King) a shout on Spotify.. guarantee it will make you want to buy the album... it hits.PRE-ORDER IT HERE DAMN IT!!!!
You can also snag his first album, "Redneck Shit" for a limited time for only $5.99. It's almost like he's paying YOU to change your life!

Before the interview, as you all know, we screwed around in our hotel in Bentonville, Arkansas for about an hour. Topics included Bernie Sanders, the new Supreme Court Nomination, this week in "Rurning", and Corey's sudden new urge to pee on people.

W. Earl Brown is one of the most hard working, talented, and beloved character actors of our time. Most know him as Dan Dority on Deadwood, Teague Dixon on True Detective, or of course as Cameron Diaz's mentally handicapped brother Warren in There's Something About Mary. The three of us, however, are lucky enough to just know him as our buddy "Big Earl"
Brown was born and raised in western Kentucky. Realizing early in life that he had aversion to manual labor, he knew that farming life was not for him. The first theater he ever attended was on his grandparents' front porch, where, in following family tradition, they would entertain themselves after a day's work with songs and stories. He was much better suited to that part of Kentucky farm life rather than the fields and barns.
In addition to his television and film work, Earl co-starred in Sony's The Last Of Us, 2013 Video Game Of The Year. He also writes music and records with Sacred Cowboys, an LA based Americana band.
As if our southern roots weren't enough to make us pals for life, Brown will also be starring in Showtime's new series 'I'm Dying Up Here', produced by Jim Carrey and based on the booming stand up comedy scene in LA during the 70's. The series premiers Sunday, June 4th.
On this episode we discuss growing up in the south, our mutual love of comedy, the fears that come with being a professional entertainer, DEADWOOD, and what Larry David is like in real life. Not gonna give anymore away because we had too much fun and want you to hear it for yourselves!

After an upbringing and young adulthood in rural Alaska that could generously be described as "some Story of Job shit", Lauren Murphy found herself hopelessly addicted to drugs and near the end of her rope. She had taken just about as many punches from Life as she could take.
So she decided to punch back.
Now Lauren is a happily married mom and professional MMA fighter in the UFC with a record of 9 wins and 3 losses, and, far more importantly, she's clean and has been for years. If her story doesn't move you, then you are probably dead. And not just regular old "oh I'm dead inside" type dead, but literally dead.
We met Lauren at The MMA Lab in Phoenix where she taught us how to kick and punch (badly, but that's not her fault) and then we sat down at the Phoenix House of Comedy to talk about fighting. Fighting addiction, fighting your demons, fighting for your life, etc. (We talk about actual fighting too.)
Before the interview, you'll hear a conversation the three of us had on Saturday at the Golden Spike Comedy Festival in Salt Lake City. Being in the heart of Mormon World had religion on our mind, so be ready for some blasphemy in this un.
How do you even begin to describe George Wallace? The sheer fact that we have become friends with him is kind of too much for us to handle.
He's been in a Cohen Brother's movie (One of the greatest duos of all time), He's been on Seinfeld (One of the greatest sitcoms of all time), and he played THE MAYOR OF GOTHAM CITY in Batman Forever (Do we even have to hype up Batman?)
More importantly (to us, at least) he is one of the greatest stand-up comedians of all time. In his 40+ year career, he has worked every room, every theatre, and every casino you can imagine, all the while inspiring many legendary comedians we still enjoy today.
We sat down with George in the showroom at The Legendary Punchline in Atlanta, Georgia - where George lives today.
We discuss his start in comedy, his business ventures, his insanely talented family, and of course, the conversation steers in the direction of our current political landscape.
Before the interview begins of course, we recorded an hour long intro in a hotel in Burbank. Drew and Corey had just gotten off of a plane from the east coast, so the conversation jet-lagged its way to the Russian scandal, Ben Carson's recent word fart about slavery, Alex Jones, and Trae's recent trip across the border.
