LISTEN TO THE EPISODE ON APPLE PODCASTS HERE

[NSFW WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE]

On today's episode I have viral sensation Alex Kack, aka Green Shirt Guy! 




Alex became a viral sensation this past week after he was caught on camera laughing at the response of some protesters at a Tuscon City Council meeting. After talking with Alex I also took the time on this episode to talk about two of the recent Emmy FYC events that Netflix invited us to for "Russian Doll" and "When They See Us". 



Watch the video that made Alex a viral sensation

I talked with Alex about what it's like to become a viral sensation and know that he will live forever on the internet as a meme and gif, peoples misconceptions about Sanctuary Cities, his activism work with Sanctuary Tucson, how people can get involved, and so much more. I also talked about listening to Maya Rudolph and Natasha Lyonne talk about "Russian Doll" at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, and the importance of Ava DuVernay's show "When They See Us".

[NSFW WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE]

On today's episode I have actor and comedian, Matt Knudsen!



Matt and I have been Facebook friends for a few years, but it took us a bit of talking to actually remember how we met. Matt is an incredible actor and comedian who has been seen on CONAN, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Kominksy Method, and The Big Bang Theory, just to name a few.

I talked with Matt about moving to Los Angeles and starting comedy, the weird first comedy show he was part of, his stand up debut on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, figuring out how to get acting jobs, working on shows like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Kominsky Method, being part of the last few episodes of The Big Bang Theory, and so much more.

A huge Thanks to Matt for taking the time to make the journey from the west side of Los Angeles all the way to my corner of East Hollywood. Make sure to follow him on all of the links below and check out the few clips that I've provided on the site as well. 

Thanks, Matt!

Episode 163 - The One With Me

LISTEN TO THE EPISODE ON APPLE PODCAST HERE

[NSFW WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT]

Today's episode of the podcast is a change of pace from our normal episode. There's no guest today, no co-host today, it's just me.

Hey, it's an episode with just ME. 

Leading up to the San Diego Comic-Con episode, I didn't release an episode for 2 months. I wasn't taking an hiatus or anything of that nature, episodes just simply didn't happen. I went through a lot during those two months. A lot of self discovery, and a lot of loss in someways. During that time I found my way to Ron Funches new podcast "Gettin' Better", which ultimately inspired to record this particular episode. 

I decided to take the time in this episode to talk about changes coming to the podcast, as well as a lot of personal changes. I've always lacked consistency with this podcast, which is critical to a podcasts success. While I restructure some of the show, I will now be releasing episodes EVERY FRIDAY. I also talk about my battle with depression, understanding how to get through it, weight loss and weight gain, battling food addiction and understanding addiction, Little One's health scare, how I'm getting better, and so much more. 

I was honestly scared to record this episode alone. I didn't know if I would be able to have a conversation essentially with myself and the sound foam and microphone in front of me. It proved to be very cathartic. I hope this is something that all of you can enjoy as I strive to bring you the best episodes and content that I can. Thank you for sticking with this show for so long. It means the world to me. If you're new to the show, WELCOME! I look forward to meeting you and hopefully being able to entertain you and help get you through your day. Follow me on the links below and let's chat!

Thank you for listening. 

Enjoy the episode!

Episode 162 - LIVE from San Diego Comic-Con 2019

LISTEN TO THE EPISODE ON APPLE PODCASTS HERE

[NSFW WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT]

On today's episode we are coming to you LIVE from San Diego Comic-Con 2019!

Tim, James, Todd, and Stacie during the live show

This is our fifth year returning to SDCC to do a live show, and this years show did not disappoint! A few days leading up to Comic-Con, I actually didn't know if this panel/show was even going to happen. Guests continued to fall through, and a few days before the convention my co-host also dropped out. Luckily though with moments notice, Todd Masters and Stacie Carver from Toddland quickly jumped on as guests. I knew my friend James Simenc would also be in town taping with Conan, and he joined the show last minute as my co-host. With our largest crowd to date, we had possibly my favorite shows we've done here.


James, Tim, Todd, and Stacie after the show. Follow them on the links below!

On the episode I talked with James about prepping for the Conan Comic-Con sketches and some of his moments with Conan, as well as a little bit of our Nerdmelt history for the audience. We also talked with Todd and Stacie about their creative process for their Comic-Con exclusives for Bob's Burgers, Family Guy, and American Dad, as well as what it was like to grow up with Todd and so much more.

Congrats on winning best booth at SDCC 3 years in a row!!

I can't begin to thank James, Todd, and Stacie enough for being so willing to join me last minute. I had such an incredible time with them and it made this year's SDCC absolutely incredible for me. As I mention in the intro, I apologize for the audio issues on the episode. Some mics are louder then others. While I tried to do my best to balance them in editing, the damage was done to some sections. Our mic check before the show was good, so I don't know why we had an issue. The joys of recording live shows! Thank you again to San Diego Comic-Con for having us back for our fifth year. Here's to the next 5! 

Thank you James, Todd, and Staice!

Enjoy the episode.

[NSFW WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT]

On today's episode I have the Creators & Producers of the new Netflix show, "Historical Roasts", Eddie Furth and Ryan Pigg!

Eddie Furth and Ryan Pigg at the "Historical Roasts" Premier

I first met Eddie and Ryan very briefly in passing during my time at Meltdown when Historical Roasts and Fictional Roasts were regular shows at NerdMelt. However, this was the first time we've actually sat down and talked and it was such a great time!

Michael Ratner, Jeff Ross, Eddie Furth, Ryan Pigg, and Samee Junio at the Historical Roasts Premier

I talked with Eddie and Ryan about their time as interns at NerdMelt and how they created the show during one of their shifts, how the concept for the show evolved, bringing our mutual friend Samee Junio on as a Producer, selling the show to Netflix, working with Jeff Ross, seeing it on The Tonight Show, and so much more! 

Historical Roasts Premiers TONIGHT on Netflix!

See the Official Trailer here

A huge thanks to Eddie and Ryan for taking the time to come and join me on the show. They've had an incredibly busy week with press and the premier of "Historical Roasts" and were kind enough to still squeeze this in. Make sure you tune in starting TONIGHT at Midnight on Netflix and watch the show. The cast of these episodes are incredible. So much work went into making this show possible and I couldn't be more excited for Eddie, Ryan, and Samee to have the show that hatched in a small comedy room in the back of a comic book store come to life on Netflix.

Thanks, Eddie and Ryan!
