Let’s be honest: Improv class is a lot like Alcoholics Anonymous. You’re in a room with a bunch of other tortured souls you only know on a first name basis because your life isn’t where you want to be and something needs to change before you wind up dead. That’s

Metallica released a new single – its first in I believe eight years (I ain’t looking that shit up to confirm) – the other day. And it rocks. And I couldn’t be happier. It’s been so long since I’ve cared about this band that very few of you know this,

To me, meditation is like Communism: Interesting in theory, Hell in practice. I mean, who can stand to sit in the stink of their own awfulness without chasing it away with your iPhone or booze for more than a few moments? But our own co-hostess Sara somehow is not able

DC Comedy Podcast Penis The Night of HBO
Papa's Basement Radio Show

In news that will shock literally no one that has listened to the Papa’s Basement Show, I have been compulsively watching HBO’s newest program, The Night Of. And, for the most part, it is a relatively straightforward gritty crime thriller. That said, this previous Sunday’s episode (episode five) took what

I got half of my wisdom teeth yanked this week, which I’ve mostly healed up from, but I spent the better part of the last few days sounding like Larry Flynt after he suffered a stroke. The episode discusses the fun of getting my teeth pulled while wide awake because

I’m not really familiar with Leslie Jones. She’s apparently on SNL, and produced this bit of wisdom for the show (which resonates with me as I come to grips with the reality that, with each passing day, my odds of making it as they relate to my age look roughly

Pokémon Go has arrived, and the world is losing its mind. I am as well, but not because I love the game: I’m a Nintendo nut and knew this game was going to be huge months ago. Did I get off my ass and buy any stock, which has now

It’s a contentious time in this nation’s history: Pokemon Go has us fighting over PokeGyms and tiny monsters. We are busy either murdering or being murdered by cops. And I wouldn’t trust presumptive nominees of the country’s main political parties to not cheat at a game of Monopoly much less
