Stand up comedian and all around nice guy Justin Williams comes on the show and we talk about movies, comedy and women. We share impressions of prominent black men. Also, he wants you to know Die Hard 2: Die Harder is the worst movie ever. What fun we had! Live it with us!
Greg Aidala joins the show and we literally have tea together. If you don’t know him, he is the most well-known comedian from Albany, NY; and we go to Professor Java’s, a local coffee house and talk the local comedy scene, and how he got his start as an entertainer. He is a positive, earnest guy who got to where he is by working for it, and he’s done a lot to make people aware of comedy in the Albany area, and we have a bit of an intimate chat about his success. You can check out Greg at http://www.gregaidala.com, follow him on Twitter @GregAidala and come check him out with comedian Moody McCarthy April 21 at Holiday Inn Express in Latham, NY!

J.D. Funari brings the “Fun” to the show as he discusses life in Los Angeles, and gives and interesting perspective into “the industry,” because he is a marketing editor by day, meaning he is one of the people that cuts together trailers for movies and television. We talk about the general business and go into how studios market movies. How effective is marketing in the internet-saavy world? What is the next level in entertainment to the masses? Can Apple bring about a change in consumers? Then a celebrity dies. And we had nothing to do with it. Really. This segues into a talk about celebrity losses, which generates into a conversation about movies, acting and Academy Award nominations.

Jesse comes on the show to discuss a wide range of topics. Starting with the primitive year 2004. We discuss car theft, cooking with exotic animals, and
Ron Paul’s secret identity. Then, we discuss working in retail cell phone sales together. Jesse gives me a lesson on both geography and diction. Where in America do they have killer fathers and shoot meth? What was being unemployed at the height of the recession like? Does Jesse think we’re still in trouble? Should you shop at amazon.com? Will they continue to support the show? Do they support ugly women? I reveal the original title of the podcast that iTunes rejected. Are you a hipster? Wait, what’s a hipster? Jesse indicts me! What is a storycore, and how am I going to contribute?
What an amazing guest!

If you ever have been to Albany, NY there’s one place that people just know,
it’s invaded the local popular culture, and has been Bombers Burrito Bar.
It’s right in the cultural center, and Matt Baumgartner joins the podcast
recorded at The Olde English with a bottle of Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay
Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Yum. Oh, right, the notes. Anyways, this is truly a fascinating, deep conversation with a guy who makes it happen. Learn how Matt transitioned from a boring job he hated, to opening a little Burrito
restaurant, and developing it to Opening three more Bar/Restaurants. He
gives the secrets to his success! He is candid about business ideas and
practices and is a completely personable guy. Oh, and by the way, we both
are slowly getting drunk during the whole thing. I’m not going to spoil it
with notes. Just listen already. I literally get drunk with an icon of
local culture and you learn things.
The #1 Podcast in NY state. Kiki Vassilakis joins the show to discuss her various AWESOME projects. We start with Kiki’s lesson to me on confidence. Then, I relay a story about working in a national restaurant with a very horrible manager, and how karma got it’s revenge! Don’t mess with me!
Kiki describes what it’s like to have so many varied interests, and how she
maintains having an active pursuit of her interests. Photography. Graphic
Design. Music. Painting. But also, for you seedy people out there, Kiki DJ’s
at a strip club. Learn what that’s like! Is Kiki the next Childish Gambino?
Listen to the first can of Schweppes Ginger Ale opened on a podcast ever. I
give the worst sleep tip ever. What is an electric forest festival? Kiki
gets into her photography career, how she enjoys light painting and
photographing bands! Including Dry River Caravan! This leads into the
shortest rap career in history (SPOILER: Mine.) Then it gets nerdy. I
compare Kiki to Joss Whedon. I learn that Hentai is truly horrifying. Kiki
reveals she would be a terrible police officer, but I would be even worse.
Find out what I’d name my gay bar. You can find Kiki’s work at her website, kskvs.com; follow her on twitter @abkproductions, and check her out for your photography needs!
