Justin Bieber’s Swag Coach

Welcome to my very first episode with real life guests for the whole show! I invited my friend’s Ray (@raygarsha) and Baron Jon (@zerotofluent, from zerotofluentin90days.com). We go a full hour talking about Baron Jon’s journey to learning Chinese in 90 days, Ray’s heritage, the Oscars, movie marathons and much, much more.

My New Year’s Resolution: Drink Beer

Trying the 25 minute format again…hate it? love it? Let me know. I witnessed some craziness outside of my office today, have recently started a new challenge, and finally I talk about the Flu epidemic. I’m looking for a guest for next episode… let me know if you’re interested!

B is for Bad

I’m experimenting by getting my episodes to 25 minutes (the average US commute), let me know what you think. Happy New Years… so why do we celebrate New Years after all? We survived the fiscal cliff, and I’m still trying to figure out how to survive the food regulations in NYC.

Subway Surfers

It’s episode 14 – the very special Christmas episode… well not really. But it IS nearly 40 minutes of me talking about my continued subway experiences, parallel universes, and the crazy things I’ll do to make a few bucks.

It’s the End of the World as We Know It

 

It’s been too long since I’ve been on – have a bit of a cold, so sorry for the delay. We chat about the horrible event of last week, the politics of Christmas, kitty bombing, and the end of the world.

Carousel Capitals and Townie Bars

I’m back – have no fear. Episode 12 is being brought to you live from NY (sort of). I breach controversial subjects like billboards, bumper stickers, and townie bars.

“…and that’s why I can eat a lot”

Listen to my longest episode yet; 45 minutes of my favorite content to date! Hear me rant about elevators, catfish, and online dating experiences.

Murder and Irrational Fears

Special thanks to SkyLion (click link for Facebook) for providing me some great music to open my show up with! You can buy their album here, it’s only $5 and it’s a great album! Check it out here: SkyLion – Learning to Listen

Listen to me talk about Australia, daylight savings time, avoiding murder, Undercover Boss, and my not so irrational fears.

Wooden Bags and Open Containers

It’s election night, and I spent over 2 hours in line waiting to vote. As you might imagine, I have a few stories from my experience.

My Message to Bloomberg (Postpone the Marathon)

**WARNING – This show was unplanned and is me just venting. I am speaking very honestly and use foul language. You have been warned.**

I’m angry. I needed to vent about this. And I have a new microphone and an audience, so why not. Please take any opportunity you have to voice your opinion on this via Facebook, Twitter, or whatever means you have. Also remember to donate to the victims of Sandy by texting “REDCROSS” to 90999.

UPDATE: Turns out the race was literally cancelled as I recorded/posted this. Now let’s see what they do with all of the resources/money/manpower.

“Air Quotes”

Big week in the news and thus, a lot to talk about. Frankenstorm proved to be quite devastating to the northeast, Disney buys Star Wars, Mighty Ducks turns 20, and more ridiculous reality show recaps than you’ll know what to do with.

Finally, please take some time to donate $10 to the victims of Superstorm Sandy by texting as described below, or by clicking the image to visit Red Cross’ donation site.

Frankenstorm and Halloween

A very special halloween episode! Listen in to hear about how to survive Frankenstorm, my adventures in ZMBLND (zombie mud run 5k), my thoughts on the evolution of Halloween over the past 20+ years, and a classic story from a fast food nightmare! This episode clocks in at just around 34 minutes.

Horses and Bayonets

I can’t stay away from politics (how could I not try and take advantage of Horses and Bayonets!)… I add my insight into how to make debates more educational and entertaining, and talk about my big move back to New York! Finally, I end with a funny voicemail story from the last episode!

Debate Tonight

Final presidential debate airs tonight… let’s see if this one is any better than the last two I have seen. Maybe we will finally get an answer to “why stuff is still expensive?”

I’m sure there will be some good material to be had for my next episode!
