Interesting people. Intriguing conversations. Improvised sketch comedy?!?
“Sketch Comedy Podcast Show” is a one-of-a-kind interview experience where people who are or do things that are extraordinary have a fun, relaxed and open conversation with someone who is ultimately curious... who then has the audacity to tell the guest that they are going to improvise a comedy sketch right then-and-there about the same things they talked about. The results are often surprising and fun!
Join in the fun! There are serious moments, funny moments, and all of the moments in-between!

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!

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 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…

Job interviews can be one of the most stressful events for us. We open ourselves to the possibility of looking like we are unqualified. Or maybe they ask the question that uncovers that one thing that exposes you for the creep you are. Or perhaps the question comes up about your mental well-being and as you are thinking the other person in your head takes over and answers for you in a way that makes you sound like you are completely crazy… “No it doesn’t”… Yes it does!!!

Mindset. It can change on a whim, it can dictate our mood, and it is the determining factor one whether or not our days are filled with milk and honey or a crap sandwich. It is so important to set your mind early in the morning and put it into a positive space; doing so will lead to prosperous and effective days and a smile as you roll into the evening. Mindset shows everyone around you… “Hey dad?”… What?!? Can’t you see I’m recording? What is wrong with you? You’ve ruined everything and now I have to start over! My life sucks so bad!!!!
