Most notable of those stages was in the basement of the First Lutheran Church of Throggs Neck in the Bronx during my years working for The Bronx Underground. To the average music listener, The Bronx wasn't known as a hub for rock music but for many years, they threw packed all ages shows and one of the bands leading the scene was A Moment's Worth, a band to me were the bridge between Brand New and NOFX. Albums like Ironic Last Wordsand Start Where You Are were pivotal content in the soundtrack to my upbringing and you should be listening if you aren't already. This discussion that was recorded a few months backand Alex Bondarev took a break from conversing with oceans to converse with me about remaining determined in the wake of constant failure, empathy and being stoked for others, ...

Amanda Cohen has been doing comedy since the late 1980s/early 1990s and was an ally in the gay rights movement early on. We talk PC culture, the gay rights movement, her early days booking shows in Pittsburgh, her love for Law & Order, her time in a punk rock glee club during her days living in Chicago, amongst a bajillion other things. This conversation went all over the place and it's a great listen. I am lucky to call her my friend. She is bright, incredibly insightful, just an overall great human being and you can find her on Twitter at @amandacohen27

Ep 2 Jimmy Callaway

Jimmy is a San Diego-born stand-up comedian and writer and I spoke with him in my car around the corner from the UCB Theater on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood. I knew him for a while and our mutual punk rock upbringings allowed us to bond over a ton of great bands like Dillinger Four, Rocket From The Crypt, you name it. In this discussion we talk music, where to find the best Mexican food in San Diego (spoiler alert, I say it's Ray's) and dating while everything feels like a mess. You can follow my friend Jimmy on the social medias at @jimmytheworm

I've known comedian Art for some time. My moving to LA was brought to his attention from a mutual friend in New York City and we first crossed paths at the Westside Comedy Theater, a wonderful club in Santa Monica that he calls his home base.
