The Dork Forest

Dork on Dork Dialog with Jackie Kashian. I am interested in whatever dorky thing you want to talk about.

Moshe Kasher (http://www.moshekasher.com/ and @moshekasher on twitter) has a love of Religion. We talk about the BIG issues in a tiny tiny way. He goes into the history of various religions, his own journey with faith and I learn a LOT about Judaism. He's a great stand up comic, he's got a book out and his new album is o.u.t. Go to his website and see him live. For he is wonderful. Enjoy.

www.allthingscomedy.com is hte podcast network that TDF is with and there are a lot of other great pods on that network if you're looking for more fun.

Facebook Fan created group "Rangers of the Dork Forest" is a great place to meet other rangers and talk about the the episodes. https://www.facebook.com/groups/353762778033456/ You can also just email jackie@jackiekashian.com and tell me how you loved the show. Just those emails ;)

DONATE at www.jackiekashian.com or www.dorkforest.com. MY website has my performance schedules and a boatload of merch available. T-shirts/CDs, hoodies. The Amazon Banner is there as well to click THROUGH to amazon and order (I get a kickback).

Thanks for listening and enjoying the show. Take care out there, Jackie

NOTES:
Kasher in the Rye - Moshe's BOOK!
Trembling Before G-D (the book he recommends fer reading, religion wize)
Borsalino Hat - the "go to" hat for Bar Mitzvah!
Source Family - Father Yod (crazy cult in LA)
Timothy 1:9:10
Lucifer by Mike Carey (the graphic novel I recommend for reading, religion wize;)

Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia, Sleater-Kinney) (@Carrie_Rachel on twitter) loves books, music, socio-linguistics, dogs, guitars and I interupt almost every stoy she tells. I talk too much but she's still fascinating, hilarious and really, quite nice. Enjoy.
