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.

Greg Proops www.gregproops.com is back! This ep is a LOT about Ancient History. As per usual I could listen to him read old timey papyrus scrolls. That's how the phone books used to come! Weird. His Podcast, called The Smartest Man in the Room (for obvious reasons) is here http://www.gregproops.com/blog/smartest-man-in-the-world-podcast/.

TDF is sponsored by TiVo this month! When you GET Tivo, at www.tivo.com you can get $25 off a new TiVo if you use the promo code "ATC" which expires on 11/1/13.

When I talk TiVo during the show I reference a bit by Patton from Conan at minute 3:04 - You could just enjoy his whole set. For it was AWESOME as well. Here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdzIXkj1OfA

You can always just DONATE to keep the show happening. It helps. For real. www.dorkforest.com or www.jackiekashian.com have donate buttons (and jackiekashian.com has my standup schedule, cd's, dork forest tshirts and LIVE TDF schedule as well). Enjoy.

NOTES: Uh... it's Greg Proops... it would take me FOREVER to link all his references. You're on your own.

Feel free to review the show on iTunes ... it seems to help in ratings with them. If you wish to talk/comment about specific shows with other Rangers, here's the fb group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/353762778033456/

www.allthingscomedy.com on Soundcloud is TDF's podcast host! If you go there... you can find a lot of other great pods.

And... another way to support the show is to shop at Amazon THROUGH my webiste. SO. Go to www.jackiekashian.com, click on the Amazon banner and shop like normal. I get some sort of kickback. My father is proud.

Allee Willis (www.alleewillis.com) loves Detroit, sandwiches and kitsch. She's written songs you know. September made famous by Earth, Wind and Fire... Boogie Wonderland... the theme to Friends (I might be the only dork excited about that last). But look her up on allmusic.com and have your mind blown. We talk about her amazing collection of kitsch, her project to help Detroit (http://alturl.com/xo5cc) and food. Quite a bit aout food. It's great. Enjoy. 

This month the show is sponsored by TiVo. www.tivo.com  - and you can get $25 off a new TiVo if you use the promo code from www.allthingcomedy.com "ATC." All Things Comedy has a BUNCH of great podcasts to listen to if you're looking for new pods to download.

You will hear me do an AD for TiVo on the show. I reference a bit by Patton Oswalt on Conan. (minute 3ish) www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdzIXkj1OfA Know that I genuinely like TiVo. So there.

You can also just DONATE to the show. www.dorkforest.com and www.jackiekashian.com have donate buttons. There, too, are Ranger T-shirts, CDs and info about my Standup Schedule and LIVE TDF's. Thanks for listening.
