Ayyyy! We're back in the Digital Diamond studio for another week of fuckery. This week the Ish Crew goes toe to toe with a topic that has kicked us in the teeth multiple times. We go 12 rounds in a bloody battle against domestic violence. But we do it a bit differently...we attack the subject from the male point of view (I know, it's weird that 3 men are taking the male point of view). From throwing right hooks at the #believeallwomen narrative all the way to bodyslamming the negative stereotype associated with men being abused. Enjoy!
Ayyyyyy! We're back in the Digital Diamond studios for another week of fuckery. This week the Ish Crew gets into a topic that has caused numerous yelling matches, a few walk-outs and a whole bunch of hurt feelings...and that's just from the 3 hosts. The guys finally set some ground rules, push all their feelings to the deepest recesses of their souls and dive head first into blackface. Enjoy! Wikipedia: Blackface is a form of theatrical make-up used predominantly by non-black performers to represent a caricature of a black person. The practice gained popularity during the 19th century and contributed to the spread of racial stereotypes such as the "happy-go-lucky darky on the plantation" or the "dandified coon".[1] By the middle of the century, blackface minstrel shows had become a distinctive American artform, translating formal works such as opera into popular terms for a general audience.[2] Early in the 20th century, blackface branched off from the minstrel show and became a form in its own right.[3] In the United States, blackface had largely fallen out of favor by the turn of the 21st century, and is now generally considered offensive and disrespectful,[4] though the practice continues in other countries.

Ayyyyy! We're back in the Digital Diamond studios for another week. On this episode the Ish Crew takes their turn in trying to explain aliens. Were they ancient visitors to Earth? Have they always been here? Are they interstellar travelers that come and go as they please? Well, we have no clue, but, what we do know is what "evidence" has been left, studied and interpreted as extraterrestrial. This one goes completely off the rails as the guys try their best to keep their sanity. Enjoy! Digital Diamond Network Website The Podcast(ish) Podcast Facebook Page
AYYYY! We're back in the Digital Diamond studios for another episode. This week the Ish Crew goes in on a topic that is making headlines around the world. From the NBA, to professional gamers having their winnings revoked, to protesters and the United Nations plus Nike and everyday ideology then all the way to the "mark of the beast". The boys go deep on this one. Enjoy!   Digital Diamond Network Website The Podcast(ish) Podcast Facebook Page  
Ayyyyyyy! We're back in the Digital Diamond studios for another episode. This week we get down and dirty with the dark side of comedy. From the comedians that say the craziest things in their set, to the far left that are trying to censor their speech. This one gets crazy. Enjoy! follow us on our socials for all the latest updates. Facebook Instagram Twitter Digital Diamond Network Website Wikipedia: In a modern sense, comedy (from the Greek: κωμῳδία, kōmōidía) is a genre of fiction that refers to any discourse or work generally intended to be humorous or amusing by inducing laughter, especially in theatre, television, film, stand-up comedy, or any other medium of entertainment. The origins of the term are found in Ancient Greece. In the Athenian democracy, the public opinion of voters was influenced by the political satire performed by the comic poets at the theaters.[1] The theatrical genre of Greek comedy can be described as a dramatic performance which pits two groups or societies against each other in an amusing agon or conflict. Northrop Frye depicted these two opposing sides as a "Society of Youth" and a "Society of the Old."[2] A revised view characterizes the essential agon of comedy as a struggle between a relatively powerless youth and the societal conventions that pose obstacles to his hopes. In this struggle, the youth is understood to be constrained by his lack of social authority, and is left with little choice but to take recourse in ruses which engender very dramatic irony which provokes laughter.[3]
Another week, another episode.  This week the Ish Crew thinks for themselves as they think in a group about what group think is...or something like that. -The social, political and financial outcomes that arise from thinking as part of a group.  -Tangents run a muck  -Also, John Vex and Parnel don't want to get "dick punched" Enjoy! The Podcast(ish) Podcast Facebook Page Digital Diamond Network Facebook Page @Iamwillhaze @parnelramlall  Wikipedia:  Groupthink is a psychological phenomenon that occurs within a group of people in which the desire for harmony or conformity in the group results in an irrational or dysfunctional decision-making outcome. Group members try to minimize conflict and reach a consensus decision without critical evaluation of alternative viewpoints by actively suppressing dissenting viewpoints, and by isolating themselves from outside influences. Groupthink requires individuals to avoid raising controversial issues or alternative solutions, and there is loss of individual creativity, uniqueness and independent thinking. The dysfunctional group dynamics of the "ingroup" produces an "illusion of invulnerability" (an inflated certainty that the right decision has been made). Thus the "ingroup" significantly overrates its own abilities in decision-making and significantly underrates the abilities of its opponents (the "outgroup"). Furthermore, groupthink can produce dehumanizing actions against the "outgroup". Antecedent factors such as group cohesiveness, faulty group structure, and situational context (e.g., community panic) play into the likelihood of whether or not groupthink will impact the decision-making process. Groupthink is a construct of social psychology, but has an extensive reach and influences literature in the fields of communication studies, political science, management, and organizational theory,[1] as well as important aspects of deviant religious cult behaviour.[2][3]
AYYYYY! It's been a few weeks (4 weeks actually) and we're finally back with another episode. We'd like to thank all our listeners for their patience, loyalty and dedication to the show! This week The Ish Crew goes in on Pedophilia, corruption, scandals and everything in between as it relates to The Catholic Church. We let our resident "Catholic correspondent" John Vex off the leash and he`s gone rabid with this one. He's pissed off and so are we. Listen in as we go in on the history, mythology and doctrine of the Catholic Church and it's parishioners.  As we mention on the show, our opinions are from the viewpoint of an Atheist, a Catholic and someone spiritual. Nothing gets overlooked (and even if it did, you won't miss it) Enjoy!
We apologize for the couple weeks without an episode. We recorded this episode just after the latest mass shootings in the US and wanted to leave sufficient time before releasing it. Out of respect for everyone involved we would like to say that this episode is not meant to deflect from the tragedies that occurred or the lives lost in those attacks.  This episode is meant to start the conversation about what steps should/could/need to happen to avoid these situations in the future.   IG: @parnelramlall @Iamwillhaze @digitaldiamondnetwork FB: The Podcast(ish) Podcast
Social Justice Warriors, AntiFa, Alt Right, Alt Left...This week we put and end to it. If you're easily offended, good luck with this.   This week we're sponsored by Lisa Gallant of with CIR Realty
Ayyyyyyyy! We're back in the Digital Diamond studios for another episode! This time we put away the controversy and dial up the conspiracy. From the moon landing to the flat earth, the Ish Crew gets down and dirty with "other side"...Enjoy!   We're also welcoming a new sponsor to the podcast, Lisa Gallant of with CIR Realty. Help support the show by supporting our sponsors!
AYYYYY! After 3 weeks we're back at it in the Digital Diamond studio with another episode. This week the ish crew talks about the (somewhat) new technology known simply as "deepfake". Take a ride with us as 3 technology deficient guys discuss what they can of it. The nefarious ways in which we (we being a corrupt government, terrorist groups or really anyone with bad intentions) could use it and why it's important to have it. The tangents are many on this one. Enjoy!
AYYYYYY!!! We're back in the DDN studio for another week of fuckery. This week the Ish Crew goes in on the past, present and future of organisms. This time we did something a little fun, although he doesn't fully believe in Creationism, John Vex did his best to argue on the side of it (and, to be fair, did a fairly exceptional job at it). We started to discuss the theories of evolution and creationism and, as always, ended up on a tangent. From the Big Bang to Transhumanism...we get into EVERYTHING. Enjoy! Special Guest: Terrence Hinds (King Khan) #motivatedbyhindz P.S. Next week there will not be an episode. Engineer: Kyle Brower Mix and Master: John Vex Executive Producer: Parnel Ramlall
Wowie, Wow, Wowza. I was wondering when we would have an argument so intensely that it almost came to blows. Well, it happened on this episode. We started talking about the recent viral video of the Calgary Police seemingly abusing their power and, through a tasteless joke, ended up debating whether or not The Virgin Mary was just being promiscuous to the "nefarious brilliance" of organized religion. To say this was a dumpster fire would be understating the veracity of the conversation. We took a weeks break and came back to address the situation and have an honest discussion on the topics at hand. Enjoy! On the first half we welcomed DJ Markoshi AKA Koko Buttabrown as a guest host. He flew in from Toronto to be on the show, he barely said a word...Thanks?!
AYYYYY! We're back in the Digital Diamond studios and, if you can believe it, it's been a full year! We honestly can't thank you, the listeners, enough for the amazing support you've shown us. We would have never grown like we did without you. So to you we say again, Thank You. This week we celebrate a year of the Ish Podcast. A look back on past episodes, new takes on the hot topics and a glimpse into what's coming in the future. Grab a glass and join us for a toast. Here's to one year down and many, many more to come.  
AYYYY! We're back in the Digital Diamond studios for another week of fuckery. With all the craziness going on in the world, we figured we would try to break down where all the hate is originating from. From Canada censoring social media sites to China censoring it's citizens. Cyber bullying, free speech and controlling the Internet...nothing gets overlooked on this episode. Grab your torches and pitchforks, its time for the witch hunt to begin when the Ish Crew tries to answer the question "Who broke the Internet?" Enjoy!
AYYYY, we're back in the Digital Diamond studios and this week we get back to our roots...fighting with each other. The afterlife is complicated subject filled with nuance and (over)thinking. Some believe we will be judged at death and go to heaven or hell. Others believe our physical bodies perish but our energy goes on to the next place in time. There's even people that believe that when we die our, that's it.  This one gets heated on a few occasions during this episode when our views on the afterlife conflict...heavily. Take from it what you will. Enjoy.  
We're back in the Digital Diamond studios for another week and another episode. This week the Ish Crew talks about a subject near and dear to Parnel's heart...this week is all about health and fitness. From fad diets to eating plans, laziness to hard work and cultural differences to family genes. Success and failure are a sure thing, but the best part about it is you get to choose which side you land on. Enjoy!  
We're back in the Digital Diamond studios and I don't even know where to start with this one. Our main objective was to discuss how words are being used to have society follow a narrative, or to conform to an objective. We may have taken it too far. Here's a brief list of what we spoke about:  The Crusades Christianity and Islam LGBTQ - LGBTQ Demographics Pedophilia Sexual Orientation Gender Dysphoria Joseph Nicolosi Sr. & Joseph Nicolosi Jr. & The Rebuttal Joseph Goebbels Fetus' and Unborn Children Abby Johnson Norma McCorvey Margaret Sanger Bonobo Monkeys... AND THATS JUST THE START. Good Luck with this one, it's quite the episode.   Dictionary:  se·man·tics /səˈman(t)iks/ noun   the branch of linguistics and logic concerned with meaning. There are a number of branches and subbranches of semantics, including formal semantics, which studies the logical aspects of meaning, such as sense, reference, implication, and logical form, lexical semantics, which studies word meanings and word relations, and conceptual semantics, which studies the cognitive structure of meaning.  
AYYYYY! We're back in the Digital Diamond studios yet again for another week of tom foolery...sort of. We go through the basics and all the nuance of the education system. From overworked and underpaid teachers, to the common core teaching method, to the philosophy of teaching. We also explore the post secondary system and it's method of educating. Stick around, you might learn something (just be prepared to forget it later, lol)  
AYYYYYY! We're back in the Digital Diamond studios for another episode. I really don't know where to start with this one, we touched on EVERYTHING. I had more questions than answers and came away with even more questions and less answers.  Is jail for punishment or reform? Is the death penalty moral? Should torture replace the death penalty? Is is a deterrent? Does everyone deserve a second chance? Should showing remorse reduce the sentence? Should mental stability be a factor in sentencing? Does certain crimes warrant death? We even talk Adolf Hitler and John Wayne Gacy (Don't ask, I have no idea how we got there) Enjoy!
AYYYYYY! We’re back in the Digital Diamond studio and things are starting to heat up...or are they cooling off?! This week the Ish Crew goes in on “Global Warming”, otherwise known as “Climate Change”. he 2013 Alberta flood, deforestation, sea level changes, melting ice caps, statements and rebuttals...OOOOOO WEEEEE this was a gooder. We discuss the science, the validity of the science, facts versus fiction, the carbon tax and what we can do the help. Everything gets tossed around as we try to come to an agreement on what this all means. This one was one for the ages. Enjoy!   Wikipedia: Global warming is a long-term rise in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system, an aspect of climate change shown by temperature measurements and by multiple effects of the warming.[2][3] Though earlier geological periods also experienced episodes of warming,[4] the term commonly refers to the observed and continuing increase in average air and ocean temperatures since 1900 caused mainly by emissions of greenhouse gasses in the modern industrial economy.[5] In the modern context the terms global warming and climate change are commonly used interchangeably,[6] but climate change includes both global warming and its effects, such as changes to precipitation and impacts that differ by region.[7][8] Many of the observed warming changes since the 1950s are unprecedented in the instrumental temperature record, and in historical and paleoclimate proxy records of climate change over thousands to millions of years.[2]   Supporting Documents: ms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj1y5LG8bvhAhUbHzQIHbHUDJkQ_AUIDigB&biw=1360&bih=576#imgrc=KvDz5ziYIDzAsM:
AYYYY! We're back in the Digital Diamond studios for another week! On this episode the Ish Crew was up past their bedtimes to record one of our best episodes yet on The Halo Effect. We go in on Cognitive Dissonance, Social Perception and the effect of positive attraction. Believe it or not, I think we've solved racism as well (ok, we probably haven't, but it was a valiant effort). Sit back and strap in, this one was a gooder.   Wikipedia:   The halo effect is a type of immediate judgement discrepancy, or cognitive bias, where a person making an initial assessment of another person, place, or thing will assume ambiguous information based upon concrete information.[1][2][3] A simplified example of the halo effect is when an individual noticing that the person in the photograph is attractive, well groomed, and properly attired, assumes, using a mental heuristic, that the person in the photograph is a good person based upon the rules of that individual's social concept.[4][5][6] This constant error in judgment is reflective of the individual's preferences, prejudices, ideology, aspirations, and social perception.[3][6][7][8][9] The halo effect is an evaluation by an individual and can affect the perception of a decision, action, idea, business, person, group, entity, or other whenever concrete data is generalized or influences ambiguous information.[10][11][8][12] The halo effect can also be explained as the behavior (usually unconscious) of using evaluations based on things unrelated, to make judgments about something or someone. The halo effect specifically refers to when this behavior has a positive correlation, such as viewing someone who is attractive as likely to be successful and popular. When this judgement has a negative connotation, such as someone unattractive being more readily blamed for a crime than someone attractive, it is referred to as the horn effect.[13]
Well, we're back?! All we can say about this episode is wow. We cover EVERYTHING from Jussie Smollett to the racial double standard. Don't believe me, that's fine, just take a look at all the links below (BTW, that was very time consuming to curate, enjoy them). Hard hitting, hard to swallow and hard lessons. It feels so good to be back! Black Pigeon Speaks James Frey kicked out of Oprahs book club AOC Cow Farts Trump Vs. Obama Dunning-Kruger Effect Public Narrative Harvey Weinstein - Inside Jokes Hollywood Unsolved Murders Reza Aslan eating Human Brains Jordan Peterson on Pseudo Morals KKK Senator Robert Byrd Last "Lynching" in the USA Guns don't kill people, people kill people Florida Man The Racial Double Standard
AYYYYY! Unfortunately we're not back in the Digital Diamond Studios this week due to a scheduling conflict and personal obligations. However, we would never leave you empty handed! This week we're reposting one of our earlier episodes on "Rape Culture". This was one of our most controversial episodes and was banned from a myriad of social media sites but we feel it NEEDS to be heard. Enjoy! (again).Rape culture was coined by 2nd wave feminists in the 70's, made popular by 3rd wave feminists in the 2010's and carries with it so many negatives we can barely keep up. Listen in as we discuss the history, the repercussions and attitude towards rape culture and, in effect, toxic masculinity. Wikipedia: Rape culture is a sociological concept for a setting in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender and sexuality.[1][2] Behaviors commonly associated with rape culture include victim blaming, slut-shaming, sexual objectification, trivializing rape, denial of widespread rape, refusing to acknowledge the harm caused by sexual violence, or some combination of these.[3][4] It has been used to describe and explain behavior within social groups, including prison rape and in conflict areas where war rape is used as psychological warfare. Entire societies have been alleged to be rape cultures.[5][6][7][8][9] The notion of rape culture was developed by second-wave feminists, primarily in the United States, beginning in the 1970s. Critics of the concept dispute the existence or extent of rape culture, arguing that the concept is too narrow or that, although there are cultures where rape is pervasive, the idea of a rape culture can imply that the rapist is not at fault but rather the society that enables rape.
The Ish Crew is back in the Digital Diamond Studios for another week! On this episode, the guys have an open discussion about a plethora of topics. Straying away from their usual political/cultural commentary, these idiots give you a (somewhat) backstage pass into what they talk about off air. Everything from slavery to indentured servants, a not so great impersonation of James Brown to Comedy in dangerous places. From coping with PTSD to the overcorrection of society. It gets heated when Parnel (very weakly and oh so shamefully) defends his comparison of the KKK to black people. Will Haze has the blood of a slave, the heart of a King and the mindset of a multi-billion dollar media mogul. Enjoy! FB poll question: "Which group is more racist?" White people: 49% - Black people: 51%
