Steve Ebling


This week, I welcome comedic writer and author of Holy Bible: Best Goddamned Version, Steve Ebling. I said on this show many times that I want to read and learn more about the bible, but jesus christ, it's fucking boring! Well, this book changes all of that. So, purchase this book on Amazon, have an actual bible as your source, and laugh your ass off because you can't make this shit up!

Derek Mayo


This week I'm joined by long time friend Kareem Harvey and local Houston artist Derek, who's a cartoonist, singer/songwriter, producer, Youtuber, paper puppeteer, and dancer does everything mentioned while having cancer! (If I forgot something Derek, please forgive me!) In this episode, we have a hilarious, nerdy, motivating, and very moving conversation between three black men of various backgrounds and beliefs talking about perspective, black masculinity, solidarity, empathy, and creation.
