My guests share a podcast called Shakeytown Radio Hour. Brodie Foster Hubbard was on the old version of the show and he’s the guy that first talked to me about Fantasy Wrestling! And his co-host, Gene George, fits right in. We’re awkward and then discover each other. It’s lovely. It’s dorky. Enjoy.

Dork Forest Expedition Only Ep – Swords!

Sep 16, 2011 2

My guests are both huge fans of U2. Finally, I found another hard core fan of U2 for regular, returning guest Murray Valeriano to talk to! And that man is comic, host and good guy Damien Fahey. I prove that I don’t know about older music as much as I didn’t know about newer music. I’m sure I make the same mistakes from last episode. Let’s go there…again. When will I learn? Enjoy.

This is a dork expedition to Elliza McGrand’s house where we met with some of her friends: Trina, Jill and Stacy. It might be the girliest dork forest ever! We talked Perfume. Because of the guerilla nature of the expedition the audio is out there. There is some talking over each other and it’s like being at a meth convention. The discussion of science and ounces is intense and very dorky and addictive. I want, now, to smell better. It is great. Enjoy.

My guest is the comic, actor and gentleman: Baron Vaughn. He wanted to talk Shakespeare but he brought his non-popular card collection with him. Have you heard of Hyborian Gates? No one has. But you’re going to hear Baron Vaughn from USA’s Fairly Legal and I talk around games and movies and more Game of Thrones. Then some Shakespeare. Enjoy.
