Episode 15 | Alice Wetterlund

This week we’ve got comedian, actor, and ex wife of Andy, Alice Wetterlund!  She sits in to talk with us about sobriety, getting divorced and staying friends, finding spirituality, control issues, and show business!

But Alice is also an activist with Black Lives Matter and shares some experiences with that as well as what we can do to be supportive given our position as white people and how to check our ego when someone tells us we’re wrong.  

ALSO we have a very special VulnerabiliBuddies where Andy tells Dan how to feel and Dan throws a tantrum.

You can see all the cool stuff Alice does and follow her social media on her website!

By the way, if you have any questions about sobriety or think you might have a problem with drugs or alcohol, PLEASE reach out to us. We are not professionals, but would be more than happy to share our experiences with you on an individual basis and help you find support in your local area.

Episode 14 | Baron Vaughn

This week we’re hanging out with Baron Vaughn.  He talks to us about growing up in Vegas, performing arts school, race construction, privilege, double consciousness, and how attractive scapegoating can be.  We also get into what parents of color have to do/say to keep their kids safe, as well as the myth of fatherless black children.  For more on that, FOR SURE check out Fatherless.

You can also see him on Grace & Frankie and the new Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return, and listen to his new album Blaxistential Crisis.  Or if you live in LA, check out The New Negroes at UCB Franklin!!

Episode 8 | Ijeoma Oluo

This week we brought in writer and speaker Ijeoma Oluo to make us SUPER uncomfortable.  She brings up so many amazing points about systemic white supremacy and really challenges us to look at our role in society.  Are we doing everything we can to stop it?  Or are we living comfortably and quietly benefiting from it?  If you’re a white, cis-male, be warned… you’re going to be confronted with some ugly truths.

But we don’t stop there!  She also shares with us her fears at the mother of male children of color, what it’s like growing up as the only black kid in school, mixed race privilege, and we also tackle a very touchy question about transphobia.

Ijeoma is a phenomenal writer and you should absolutely pre-order her book, So You Want to Talk About Race!

You can also pick up The Badass Feminist Coloring Book!!
