"Anyone who has struggled with poverty knows how extremely expensive it is to be poor." -James Baldwin Smoke em' if you got em' cuz my guest this week is no stranger to getting high even while his riches are running low. Ramon Rivas II (HBO, Netflix) is a master of DIY when it comes to comedy, producing, making money, and relationships. We explore the connection between financial and emotional poverty, the importance of giving back to the people and places that made you, and why being quiet can often be perceived as rude, even if you are anything but.  Ramon is a brilliant comic and a wonderful friend. His insights as to how you can live well on a mediocre budget are inspiring. Now go listen to his albums so he gets that streaming dough! Follow Ramon: @blazerramon
"It's nothing personal, but I'm going to kill this guy." -Mike Tyson She knows it's one of the Four Agreements, but that doesn't stop Sam Jones (Creative Director-Viacom) from letting other people's attitudes and choices infect her life. From her new home in the Catskills, we discuss getting kicked out of private school, the need for diversity in your life, and why cancel culture is the ultimate form of her Achilles' Heel.  Sam and I have a great flow and a very similar attitude toward life and style. Our chemistry is obvious from the minute we begin. Enjoy it! Follow Sam: @therealsamjones
First child eats dirt, parents call doctor. Second child eats dirt, parents rinse out their mouth. Third child eats dirt, parents wonder if they need to feed him lunch. Oh to bask in the trials and tribulations of those that came before you. Handren Seavey (To Live and Bike in LA podcast) is happy to take on his role as the young wild child. Fighting for importance while his family had a laissez-faire attitude, trying to keep up with his older brothers in sports, and dealing with teachers who have a preconceived notions have all led to the brilliant, stand-out comedian you see today.  This episode also has one of the craziest day in the life, near-death stories we've ever had on the podcast. Enjoy it! Follow Handren: @handrenseavey To Live and Bike in LA:
"Maternal instinct, merely as an instinct, in unworthy of our superstitious reverence." - Charlotte Perkins Gilman Mother to all, child to none. When I asked Bri Pruett (TEDX, You Can Do It Podcast) about her focus for the episode, this was the overly dramatic answer I received. Deeply spiritual, intuitive, and shame-free, we spent this entire conversation breaking down exactly what all of that means. We also discuss body positivity, finding yourself through stand up comedy, and the role of astrology and tarot cards as a guiding light to shepherd us through the universe. Yes, she's a witch and proud of it.  Deep belly laughs, a beautiful flow, and plenty of heart-warming moments are discovered throughout this episode. From one heeler to another, no need to travel to the stars to enjoy this talk. Follow Bri: @bripruett Podcast and more:
