Mike Lawrence met me at the Creek and the Cave in Long Island City so we could record a podcast about wrestling. Mike has always been one of the comics who loves wrestling on a non-ironic level and he’s always been good at explaining things to me that I don’t agree with. So I’m glad he was able to explain to me what I’m missing with wrestling. It always seemed like garbage entertainment for garbage people. But Mike made me see how cool is it to follow the action of the squared circle. And plus I think we did this on, like, Christmas day or Christmas eve. So thank you, Jews. Steve Simeone helps with the intro and outro.

Ali Siddiq met me at the Comedy Store to talk about prison. I always knew prison life was hard, but damn. I didn’t know about all of this. Ali spent 6 years locked away with some of the most violent criminals in Texas. This is a great episode. Really fun and interesting.
