On this weeks episode the boys take one final ride in Big Pig (Corey's Truck that was wrecked and totaled 4 hours after recording this) and discuss how Cleveland has magical homeless people, the ridiculousness of Tennessee's new "Natural meaning" law, and why certain religious people seem to get off on pretending to be persecuted. 


After all that blabber, we cut to an interview we did in Trae's Burbank guest house with our good friend and hilarious Comedian Kelsey Cook (@KelseyCook).

This week, the boys sit down in Trae's Burbank guest house to discuss, among other things, misinterpreted racial slurs, their favorite childhood rappers, WORLD WAR 3 (holy shit!), Meemaws, and how they think Corey will die.


After the brief catch up on where we are today as a nation (and where the boys are, diet wise), Trae and Corey sit down with critically acclaimed Atlanta Based Rapper Scotty ATL. Before the interview you will hear one of Scotty's latest hits Life of The Party from his Album Smokin on My Own Strain, Vol 1 (Which is available on iTunes and comes highly recommended with the wellRED stamp of approval)


We discuss the similarities between poor black people and poor white people's upbringing in the south (even though they are often taught to believe they are different), how Scotty ATL got his start in rap, his side projects, and much more... check out his website for more info such as tour dates and other cool stuff!

Trae and CoFo sit down sans Drew in Trae's Burbank guest house (ahem, fellas) to discuss all of the most important things in this world, i.e. the situation in Syria, Sean Spicer being disabled, United Airlines hating Asians, and of course Nelly and Brett Favre (look it all comes together). 

This one is a little different, as we're toying with a shorter format, but we'll all three be back together next week and after we do what we do, we sit down for an awesome talk with southern rapper/entrepreneur Scotty ATL. 

For the full WellRED experience, holler at us on the road. We're still acting dumb live and in person all around the country. Go to to find tickets and we'll see yuns out there, given that the world don't end a course. Love y'all. Skeeeew.

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! for everything you need to know!


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.

Today's episode includes a sit down with our good friend Mary Wilcher.

Mary Wilcher is the VP of Production and Development at Figure 8 Films in Carrboro, NC where she lives with her wife and 2 kids. Having grown up in West Virginia and ultimately settling in North Carolina after stints in Los Angeles and Atlanta, Mary shares her experiences of sharing a marriage and family with another woman in the South. We discuss coming out of the closet, the difference between southern cities vs. rural areas, and how draconian parental rights laws affected her family directly. A moment that should have been sacred to her family became a reminder of how backwards things are. It is a story that sincerely and deeply affected all three of us. We hope you like it.


Also we discuss how reality TV changed the game, drugs, and the Kings of Leon selling out.

This past week, The wellRED Comedy Tour took us from Athens, Ga to Charleston, South Carolina by way of Jacksonville, Florida. 

This episode was recorded in the car on our way from Jacksonville to Charleston and while we agonized over how shitty a 5 hour car ride is when you are hungover, we managed to discuss Donald Trump, Jeff Sessions, Simulation Theories, and of course... fried chicken. 


Check out for tour dates, merch, and while you are there, sign up for the ole newsletter so you'll be the first to know when we are coming to your city.

Just like a super hero flick, if you wanna see Spider-Man whoop the shit out of the Goblin, you gotta watch him get his ass bit by that Spider first. 

Recorded right after the election, this episode covers our thoughts on that, and also gives you a little background into where we came from and why we are the way we are.
