#7 Tell Me A Story Jason Williams – Inside Baseball

Going back nearly a decade, Jason Williams and I have fueled our mutual nerd rage every time we end up talking to one another – even though this is Tell Me A Story, everyone in politics has stories. Lots of stories. From The Sunlight Foundation to stories of friends who’ve passed on, this is a chat about the drive to make the world a better place … through aggressive action and messaging.

[FIXED] 175 The LEFT Show – Fred Phelps is Dead [FIXED]

[The problem with the audio file has been fixed. Please, to enjoy!]

One hundred and seventy five episodes, ladies and gentlemen! The only thing that would have made this better is if Melissa weren’t so concerned with being employed and eating and all that!

So, the 175th episode of The LEFT Show found us in a celebratory mood, and then, like Christmas, Fred Phelps died, and it was time to don our party hats! I really have no hesitation what so ever about crowing when a truly evil person dies – good riddance to bad trash! There is literally nothing I could do, in celebrating the death of Fred Phelps, that could possibly sink to his level.

This is the show, folks! All this, and another round of The LEFT Show presents, The LEFT Show’s GOP Jesus Wanker of the Week!

175 The LEFT Show – Dead, dead, dead!

#6 Tell Me A Story Everett Downing – Sketchbooks and Aftermaths

Catching up with someone who has, in my opinion, actually succeeded in their professional endeavors, is a singularly delightful event. Everett Downing, most recently from Pixar, comic book artist and writer, illustrator, and all around nice guy, answers the phone this week, and we talk about Race and Gender in Comics, the art of coffee, drawing vs writing, old homes, role playing, and Patton Oswald.

#5 Tell Me A Story Troy Hughes – Hot Beer, Cold Women

Youth is fleeting, and, seriously, if you don’t look back on at least some of your life with an amount of regret – small or large – you’re either delusional, or still an insensitive asshole. Joining me on the phone this week is my VERY OLD friend, and fan favorite guest from The LEFT Show (Hey, Chucklehead) Troy Hughes from both Wisconsin and the music project Otolith. Whether it’s looking back at run ins with the police, behavior of the American teenage boy, or dealing with the challenges of fatherhood when you know you have an outstanding karmic balance, this conversation is deep in details, rich with groans, and heady with laughter.

#4 Tell Me A Story Damian Hutchinson – The Con Cons

It used to be a semi-dangerous right of passage, going to a Con. It used to be a smaller, more select, far less mainstream way to spend time, take drugs, fail to achieve coital pairing with a lady, and celebrate one’s dorkdom. The Con. Guest story teller Damian Hutchinson, artist, professor, programmer, and friend from the olden days joined me to chat up days gone by, women we loved who found us silly and mostly harmless, places we loved that exist no longer, and the violent charm of Frenchmen.

Join us, please, as we skip down Reminiscence Boulevard.
