Interesting people. Intriguing conversations. Improvised sketch comedy?!?
Each episode, 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!

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!

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!

detective, kidnapped, mystery, police, prisoner, spooky, x files
Mysteries. We love them because they give us something our human minds crave... solutions. We love movies and television that explores mysteries, crime mysteries, medical mysteries, alien mysteries... we are fascinated by what we might uncover! Sometimes those mysteries uncover amazing secrets that will help benefit the world or bring someone to justice, other times we might wish we could put the cork back on the bottle...

What exactly is a Failed Supernova? Well, a supernova is when a star collapses and releases all of it’s stored energy outward disintegrating everything in its event horizon… so being a failed supernova might be okay! I think what Shannon Milliman, this episode’s guest, means by it is she had the perception as a child she was going to be this incredible force of power and would have a huge impact on the world and instead works a relatively normal job for a normal amount of time and goes home and lives a normal life. So what makes Shannon so interesting? She helps other people deal with being normal and not letting their day jobs suck the life out of them. In fact, she has a talk that she does for groups called 'How not to let a 40 hour work week suck your soul”.

The next world war is not going to be the US vs. North Korea, or the US vs. Russia, or the US vs... wait a second, are we the problem? Well, whatever, it isn't going to be global powers, it will be technology powers. Apple vs. Google, US vs. Amazon or something ridiculous like that. Right now, the war raging in most 14 year old brains is which is better, Xbox or Playstation? Maybe it's more than just games we should be considering...

Joseph “Zombie” Zuko is the author of “The Infected” series of novels that tell of the exploits of Jim, his wife Karen, and a very large cast of characters in the days after the zombies attack. I know some of you probably read this as Joe himself was a zombie which is inaccurate, but for dramatic effect let’s just pretend that is the truth. My brains were still intact after this conversation because, according to every ex-girlfriend I have ever had, I sit on my brains because of where they are located.

business, france, language, translation
Language is tricky. Something said in one language might have the intention of sounding like something else in another language, but the subtleties of each word do not always translate from one to the other. It's a challenge that some people take on and can travel the world and experience new things. For others, it makes it really convenient that there is fast food internationally.

improvisor, instructor, language
Sebastién and I talk about learning different languages, traveling, trying not to offend anyone on accident, making up songs, and, of course, improv! We then “get busy” and record a sketch based on language and not understanding very good. That will be a lot more funny once you listen to the episode.

dating, love, relationships, tinder, trains
Dating is fun. What isn’t funny is that first date, that is some serious business. If you decide to do something like coffee or happy hour, the object of your affection might be underwhelmed and just bolt. If you decide that dinner is the better option, then you might be forced to pay for an expensive meal with someone that you do not really enjoy spending time with. If you decide to go on an all-day hike, you have to actually go and hike and exercise is lame. Whatever you do, you might want to think twice about planning something too grandiose, or you might end up in a situation like this one…
