This week Aaron and Chip Chantry discuss the idea that money is good for nothing except turning people into assholes.
Listen to the podcast, and buy Chip’s comedy album Across From the Adonis on iTunes.
This week Aaron is once again joined by Tim Butterly, James Hesky, and Jim Grammond where the four talk about the evolution of the internet and porn, and how it might affect the next generation…mainly Tim’s son. Special bonus guest Alison Zeidman joins the conversation and adds a must needed burst of energy to the group when we were on the verge of taking a meat-induced nap.
This week Aaron is joined by 2012 Philly’s Phunniest Person James Hesky to discuss the finer things in life – and how they can’t afford them. They are joined by comedians Tim Butterly and Jim Grammond after the foursome laid waste to Brazilian Steakhouse Fogo De Chao.
This week Aaron is joined by Alex Grubard to talk about mythology, branding, the process of writing one-liners and more.
Listen to the podcast, check out Alex’s blog 100 in NYC in which he chronicles ten years of performing stand-up comedy, and if you happen to be in New York tonight or tomorrow, see him headline The Creek and the Cave.

I love this quote. I love that it defends the fact that a story can show things that are wrong without the story itself being in the wrong. I love that it uses common sense that if a story is told from the perspective of a character, then the world you see is going to be affected by that character’s actual perspective. The world is an imperfect place with imperfect people, and exploring them as characters doesn’t glorify their faults. It doesn’t let them off the hook or say that it’s ok. The discussion and criticism should come of the real-world, and the systems and lines of thought that lead to people who think and act in the flawed ways. Too often the criticism or backlash is misplaced, and comes of the art, or the story itself instead of what the story should really make you think about. Maybe the writer actually…thought out what they were trying to say while they were writing their story.
Just use your brains a little, you idiots.
