Interesting people. Intriguing conversations. Improvised sketch comedy?!?
Each week, host Stuart Rice invites someone who is incredibly interesting to have a conversation about who they are and what they do and then helps them create an improvised sketch based on what they talked about right then-and-there!
It's fun, it's different, and it's the only show like it on the internet!

metaphysics, rv, self improvement
Christopher and Lyndsay Jones live in an RV. That’s it, that’s all there is… nothing else interesting here. I mean, why did I even… wait, what? You’re handing this to me now? I’m recording this live onto the hard drive, and that’s when you hand this to me? These imaginary assistants are just not very good help, maybe I should actually get some virtual assistants. Okay, what was I saying? Oh, right! Yes, Chris and Lyndsay live in an RV, but they are SO MUCH MORE! The two are now traveling around the country in said RV and helping people through chaos, which they know about. Both Lyndsay and Chris have suffered through depression, and Lyndsay has seen the dark side of addiction. Where lesser people might have just accepted this, these two decided to take it head-on and have come out the other side much happier and living a life that they want.

“That person is a natural” is the thing you want to say when you are casting someone into a role. It is best when it is effortless, when you can’t tell the person from the role they are playing. That’s what you want as a casting director… unless you are casting for “Se7en”.

accordion, improvisor, suicide, theater
This episode’s guest was so much fun to talk to. Nikki Smith is an improvisor, theater director, gives really bad advice on life (http://bit.ly/SCPSnikkitellsyou), plays the accordion (badly) and is now helping people who are having a hard time in life get through to the next day (hopefully very well). What I liked best about chatting with Nikki was how much we are similar… we are drawn to improv because we do not like to learn lines, we are both scatterbrained enough that we can’t settle on that one good thing that we are good at. The biggest difference is that she loves cats and I am constantly trying to keep my slacks free from hair.
“Ted Tudor’s Gallant Galloping Horse Contessa’s First Time on a Movie Set” with David Trotter and Tripp Fuller
July 30th, 2018 | Season 2 | 26 mins 45 secs
actor, animal, director, movie, tragedy
It is hard not to get excited by the glitz and the glamor of a movie set. There are the cameras, which you know are capturing the magic happening in front of them, there are the stars prepping for their craft, there are the film crew making sure everything is running smoothly and on-time and let’s not forget the most important, the caterers. And then there are the extras and the occasional animals that are involved, that bring death and destruction to all.
Conversation with David Trotter and Tripp Fuller | Progressive Christians and Creators of “The Road to Edmond” Movie
July 23rd, 2018 | Season 2 | 49 mins 58 secs
actor, christian, director, podcast
I’m not going to lie, I had red flags. I watched “The Road to Edmond” and realized that it was a Christian movie about 15 minutes in. Let’s face it, I am a heathen and it’s a little intimidating when one is facing two theologians, one of which has a “Dr.” In front of his name. Fortunately, the movie was good, and not just good as in “it’s a Christian movie” good, but actually entertaining and endearing. More fortunately, David and Tripp are incredibly great guys and are progressive Christians, which means that they are inclusive, not exclusive, with their faith and appreciate humanity and humans for being diverse, not shun them for it. These are my types of Christians!

classs, douchebag, femessence, feminism, gym
We are truly embarking on a new path for the human race. At no time in our history has there been an opportunity for closing the gender and race gaps, for creating an environment of love and peace and equality… wait, who is president again? Well, shoot… maybe in the next 100 years.

amish, dance, feminism, mennonite, sexuality, stripper
Okay, admittedly, the description of this guest is a little misleading. Tammy Leitzel is a former Mennonite, not Amish (and not really that connected), and she has performed stripping since that time, not during that time. Also, she was never a Mennonite past the age of 18, so maybe that isn’t entirely truthful either… I took liberties, but that is one hell of a headline!

Diversity is good. In fact, there are few times that having diversity is really bad. It’s good in your diet, to keep things working properly, it is good in education so that people can learn different things, it is good in superhero teams, because different powers can yield different results… about the only place diversity is really bad is in sexually transmitted diseases.

comics, marvel, podcast, sex positive, transgender, x-men, x-plain, xmen
Miles and I talk about facial hair and how unfair that he has locks for days and I look like a newborn baby. We then move on to less important topics like gun control and whatnot. Stuart reveals that he totally accosted both Jay and Miles in line at “Fantastic Planet”. We talk a lot about comics because of course we do, and finally talk a little about his and Jay’s story, transformations, being sex-positive, and overall really interesting and good stuff!

costumes, marathon, news, running, sports, tv
Twenty-six grueling miles of body punishment and for what? Glory? Accomplishment? Awesome selfies? Who knows what it is about marathons that attract us, but we love the spectacle of watching people in incredible shape make their bodies perform at their peak performance and watch as they poop themselves, collapse and nearly die as they cross the finish line.

We talk about his experiences with celebrities at “Funny or Die” and talk about his fantastic book “Not Quite a Genius” and also delve into the website he is helping to develop content KnewQ, which is looking to game-ify the news and make it fun to discover how much of the news is straight-up bullshit! Afterwards, we record a sketch!

australia, director, film, personal trainer
gough, the world’s first blind filmmaker, has just released a new movie that exposes the seedy underbelly of the life of personal trainers… although he may not want to expose too much, they are in really good shape!
