Kevin Seccia (@kevinseccia and www.kevinseccia.com) is a writer that loves to watch some Boxing, MMA and has spent some time thinking about who could beat up who. His blog www.howtobeatupanything.com is currently a great book - Punching Tom Hanks  - check that out http://preview.tinyurl.com/PunchingTomHanks It's good stuff. Enjoy. 

Audible is sponsoring this episode of TDF. You know how you can get that deal - a free month and one free book if you join Audible from any number of sites? Well, it's true HERE now. SO. If you've been thinking about joining Audible go here www.audiblepodcast.com/dorkforest and do it NOW. I have an audible account. It's how I listened to all of Sarah Vowell's books. Cuz they're funny but VERY smarty magoo. So, hearing the facts, told by her with timing was even better than reading it.

www.allthingscomedy.com is the podcast network TDF is with and they have a lot of great podcasts and things happening over there. Check them OUT.

Because there's a sponsor doesn't mean that you can't DONATE ... I'm working over here. www.dorkforest.com and www.jackiekashian.com have everything going on. Donation button, Merch page links, Calendar for LIVE TDF (this weekend in San Fran) and standup shows. There's also an Amazon Banner that you can use as a portal to Amazon and I get a kickback. Think about it.

The World Champ Judah Friedlander (@JudahWorldChamp) www.judahfriedlander.com is a great comic, wonderful actor, decent human and loves him some Ping Pong. We talk it out. I learn things and then forget them almost immediately. The phone bonus reflects that. But it's so great. And it was LIVE at the Fontanas for the @NYCPodFest. So great

It's January, so now' the time to start thinking about donating to The Dork Forest. I do the shows. Sometimes they're live. I buy mics and cords and travel and it's a lot of time... you should donate if you can. If you can't... talk it up to others. Pimp this dorky goodness. www.dorkforest.com and www.jackiekashian.com both have donation buttons. There's also an Amazon banner at www.jackiekashian.com to order from them and I get a kickback. You can order TDF shirts and CD's there as well as check my standup schedule.

Brian Thompson (@Amsci) of the podcast QUIT IT http://amateurscientist.org/ is a comedy writer (Feb 19 UCB-LA) and a self-admitted, literary nerd. We are gathered to speak fo Kurt Vonnegut, and we do, we dork out hardcore on books for the hour. I do weed off and sypathize with the witch in Tangled.  Brian goes with it and makes it all so fascinating. It's a good one. Enjoy.

Feel free to DONATE again to the show. My dream is that, if you can, donate $100 over the course of the year. That's $8 a month. It just gives me cash to pay for the extraneous cost of doing the show and it REALLY makes me feel like you value the show and find it worthwile. So there's that.

If you want to order TDF merch (T-shirts, CDs, Hoodies) do it where my standup schedule and links to all things are found, www.jackiekashian.com. There is also an AMAZON banner (white) on the front page that, if you go to amazon through that portal, order your stuff, I get a kickback. No additional cost to you. Very supportive.

www.allthingscomedy.com is the podcast network that I'm with and there's a lot of grea pods over there if you're looking for more goodness.

Leann Olsen (http://www.geekiana.com/) won the Laffster (https://beta.laffster.com/) contest wherein you get to be ON TDF. We talk crafting and Dr. Who. She's been listening to the show so long I think she KNOWS that, schedule permitting, you don't have to "win" to be on TDF... you just have to get me in the same room in the same town with some time. As it is... this episode is only about 40 minutes and it could have gone on much longer. But the standup show at ACME was about to start and so we went our separate ways. More will come to you from the tshirt designing, British television loving world of on twitter. Enjoy this until then.

 

This month DO NOT DONATE to the show. INSTEAD, Find you LOCAL Food Bank and donate to THEM. http://feedingamerica.org/foodbank-results.aspx can help you find it. If you want to ORDER merch (tshirts, CDs, Hoodies) from me and the show for the holidays… go for it at www.jackiekashian.com  There’s an AMAZON banner (white) on the front page too… if you want to use that, I get a kickback.

Brandi Brown (twitter @ItsTheBrandi) is, like most of us, a nesting doll of dorkdoms. We, eventually, get to her fascination with the current Supreme Court of the United States and local Canadian news. But we go through Justin Beiber, to SCOTUS, to Sesame Street. She really wants there to be a dramady where we watch 9 old people argue. It's Fun! Enjoy.

This month DO NOT DONATE to TDF... INSTEAD, find your LOCAL Food Bank and donate to them. www.feedingamerica.or/foodbank-results.aspx if you're in the US.

If you want to ORDER stuff (T-shirts, CDs or Hoodies - I have, in stock, one of each size of the hoodies and everything in Dork Forest shirts and Ranger Shirts).

If you are ordering from AMAZON this month - and, really, who isn't? Use the Amazon banner on www.jackiekashian.com (white, right above my Conan set) and it'll take you to Amazon and TDF will get a kickback, no additional cost to you.

This episode was LIVE Streamed through www.Laffster.com. Dana Gould (@DanJGould), Matt Weinhold (@MattWeinhold) and Shawn Sheridan talked with me about scary movies that might be palatable to me. I was inspired to see Evil Dead 2 for the first time, RIGHT after this... and, they were right. They're hilarious, but - as with some live shows... I make audio choices that are hard for Patrick to fix. SO... it's worth the slight buzzing... because these guys know TOO much and LOVE these movies so much. It's great. enjoy.

Mike Schmidt (twitter @the40yearoldboy) and Andy Peters (twitter @Andy_Peters) LOVE wrestling. To the tune of almost 2 hours and they want to come back. Immediately. I learned SO much that, at one point, I had to take a LAP around my house. Oh... I will have them back. This one was hilarious. Mostly because it was a great example of a dorkdom that would not stop. So great. Enjoy.

November and December. DO NOT DONATE to The Dork Forest. Find your local foodbank and DONATE to them... here: http://feedingamerica.org/foodbank-results.aspx to find a foodbank.

Michelle McNamara returns to creep me out about True Crime! (@truecrimediary & www.truecrimediary.com) and it's great. This is her third time back... we discuss home security and cops and criminals and crime and creeps. Her previous eps (TDF#50, #129) are where I first learn about the undiscovered killers of the world. This ep we catch up on bad guys and Michelle's life. She's hilarious. Enjoy.
