[EP 41] The Young Republicans feat. Grant Lindahl, Bryan Preston, & Mike Finazzo

Hola Digheads! Similar to a group of sweaty juggalos in a field in the mid-west of America, we have quite the gathering on this show! Mike Moran was shampooing his hair, so Josh had Mike Finazzo and Bryan Preston take up co-host duties to interview the young, the wonderful – comedian Grant Lindahl!

Grant’s stand-up style is a mix of traditional joke telling, musical integration, dramatic intros (ie being carried on a stage in a papoose), possessing spirit animals, and sometimes – he takes his shirt off (ladies!). For instance, Grant shares a story of orchestrating a ninja fight at the DC Improv and pretending to be in throws of an acid trip on stage. You can see that here.

Grant is also freelance animator and director based in Baltimore, Maryland. He is currently working on his BFA in Animation at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Grant recently published, “My Expensive Hobby,” a book about his experiences in the Baltimore comedy scene over the course of four months.

We also discuss a number of topics for this episode including, but not limited to: growing up on a farm, cursing in front of grandparents, pogs, ninja stand up, alt comedy, art students, and so much more!

BUY Mike Finazzo’s album “Stupid Genius,” which is available via Josh’s record label Better Robot Records!!! Only $3.99 on iTunes! The power of Christ compels you! (BetterRobotRecords.com)

[EP 37] Why This Typewriter Don’t Do Capital Letters? feat. Bryan Preston

Hola Digheads! On this week’s show comedian, writer, blogger, educator, Bryan Preston, joins Josh and Mike Moran for a nice interview in the Dig Sesh HQ.

Bryan is a very funny man – or at least that’s what they say…And we agree with “they.” Bryan has been doing comedy for a few years in the Baltimore DC Virginia area. But, on this episode we dive deep into Bryan’s history of terrible jobs. From selling mattresses, working at Best Buy, and educating America’s youth – Bryan has hated all of his day jobby jobs. Apparently, the world of mattress sales is exactly like Glengarry Glen Ross. If you flip that mattress, there’s a dirty under belly! Bryan shares some great stories on this pod.

We also discuss a number of topics for this episode including, but not limited to: Shifty “Shiflock” from the Butterfly Group, Comics Unleashed, 50 Shades of Grey, romance novels in general, breast feeding, hiding your personal life from coworkers, what happens when Mom’s go to your comedy show, terrible college students and the horrible things they say, and much more!

AND….it’s official Mike Finazzo’s album “Stupid Genius” is available via Josh’s record label Better Robot Records on iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify! Only $3.99 on iTunes! (BetterRobotRecords.com)
