Episode 20 | Ryan O’Connor

WE ARE BACK FOR REAL THIS TIME!  And joined by “accidental feminist” Ryan O’Connor to talk about bad words and all the selfish reasons to pick up a worthy cause.  

As co-host of the podcast LadyWatch, Ryan has found himself as a strong voice of modern feminism.  As such, we wanted to get his opinion on the possibility of Oprah running for president.  But we didn’t stop there!  We also talk about youth theater, straight porn vs gay porn, being “verse,” hankie codes, Los Angeles murders, weight loss surgery, Beverly Hills, winning the lottery, constitutional monarchies, The Wall Street Journal, and a death-heavy Vulnerabilibuddies!

Be sure to check out his show, LadyWatch!

Episode 17 | Solomon Georgio

Dan and Andy wore suits to sit down with writer/comedian Solomon Georgio and talk about race, politics, queer culture, growing up in Seattle, and our relationships with our parents.

Each of us also reveals something from our past that wasn’t super progressive and we aren’t proud of.  So definitely tune in for that!

Solomon’s Comedy Central Half Hour and album will both come out later this year.  Until then you can follow him all over the internet!  Twitter / Facebook / Instagram

Episode 16 | Nastaran Tavakoli-Far

On our first international show, Daniel is joined by Nastaran Tavakoli-Far, all the way from London via the magic of the internet.  We talk about what it’s like growing up as an immigrant in England and what that does to one’s sense of personal ambitions.  

Of course, without Andy guiding the conversation, Daniel takes things all over the place and we end up talking about envy, masking intelligence, male feminism, complicated people, economics, and how Dan is the wife of the show.

Along with being a journalist, Nas is the host of a phenomenal podcast called The Gender Knot.  You can find it on AudioBoom or iTunes.

At the end of the show, Daniel gets into a pretty heavy VulnerabiliBuddy.  Trigger Warning: this is about sexual assault and he uses the R word several times.  If this is a hard subject for you, we suggest tuning out after the interview.
