No show this week. A few quick updates and plugs. I'm taking a brief summer break and I'll be back with new episodes soon! Get this update in your ears in the meantime.
I was a guest on a live taping of Pete Holmes' podcast, "You Made It Weird." It was a crazy fucking show and I had so much fun. Kumail Nanjiani, Emily Gordon, Cameron Esposito, Whitmer Thomas, and Brooks Wheelan were on as well and they were all hilarious.

I talk a little bit about the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal. I also talk about how beauty can emerge from strife and the powerful nature of that process.
I talk about comedy on this one. Chicago comedy vs. New York comedy and why Chicago is so awesome. Sorry if you're not into comedy, but it was on my mind and I don't have a boss at my podcast job.
I talk about cock rings and other weird sex activities, the paradox of feeling both insanely complex yet utterly meaningless, why sports might actually be evil, and the annoying political debates that obstruct the pathway to meaningful living.
I talk about going back to Chicago, getting served with a lawsuit, mushrooms, and why everyone needs to do them.
I talk about the experience of going to my friend's wake, funeral, and tribute show, what I learned about the range of the human condition, and why I get so mad about things.
I talk about my friend, Dan Ronan, who recently died.
I talk about #YesAllWomen, Elliot Rodger, and the demonic possession that is the male sex drive. Probably some other things but I've had a few beeeeeeeeeers.
I talk about being consumed by demons, Elliot Rodger and why everyone is wrong about it, why I'm wrong about everyone being wrong, @wettbutt and obsessive texting, and a nice warm message about how to fix everything. So hilarious!
I talk about calling my grandma, dead grandparents, the street rape myth, Cecily McMillan, Occupy Wall Street, and the global revolution that will never happen.
I talk about "check your privilege", and I labor through some other bullshit. This isn't a great episode, but it won't kill you to see the cracks in my armor. I think I bitch about being unable to pick up a girl in an elevator but that goes nowhere. You'll see. Or not. Enjoy?
I talk about Cecily McMillan and Occupy Wall Street, the formation of a police state, why people have no recourse, and why 9/11 was Occupy Wall Street with balls.
I talk about manifestos, pneumonia, why the post office turns people into murderers, and why your material about homeless people sucks.
After a week off, I talk about the outcome of my criminal court case, Michael Ruppert's suicide, powerlessness, why depression is a lazy misdiagnosis, and more.
I talk about cumming in my own eye, comedy press conferences, my hearing loss and what it does to a person, the Supreme Court decision, and other useless tidbits.
A day late! I'm so sorry. I talk about riding the bus overnight, abject poverty, why porn is utterly indefensible, where feminists go wrong, and how to take down the system, man!
I talk about Stitcher, why advertising on podcasts is shameful, a book called 'End Game', the possibilities of taking down civilization, the conflict inherent in hating society but needing people, and other heart-warming subjects!
I talk about flight 370 (the missing plane), girls with boyfriends, and why slut-shaming is good.
I talk about how I hate the bagel place I go to every day, going to Montana, marriage, why asking a girl out makes me anxious, opening for Aziz, and '12 Years a Slave'.
