Jimmy Dore on WTF Podcast

Here’s a funny quote from Jimmy Dore on this episode of WTF:

“One day my brother out of nowhere starts complaining about the estate tax. ‘Hey, we got to get rid of this estate tax.” I said, ‘Phil, what are you talking about?’ He said ‘That’s when you die and you have millions of dollars, the government just takes half of it.’ I said ‘That’s horrible. Let me know when that becomes a problem for you but until then maybe you should turn off your AM radio and get invited to your own life. I’m sure the estate tax sucks but I’m pretty sure estates don’t have two cars that don’t work on the front lawn. You should be worried about the t-shirt tax at WalMart, you dickhead.’ ”

This episode is funny and I like Dore’s stories. The one part that was a drag was when they discussed Dore starting a podcast before Maron and how he was a “pioneer” and “one of the first guys doing it.” This is 2008 they are talking about. There were at least 50,000 podcasts by then. Even though I listen to a lot of podcasts from the comedy world, it always bugs me how they consider everyone outside of the comedy podcast world as non-entities. Forget us dumb schmoes who just built the entire infrastructure that makes what you do possible, nothing much counted until standups got involved. You’re welcome.

Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for May 24, 2013 – “Sleepless in SC”

Here is the direct MP3 download for the Evil Genius Chronicles podcast, May 24 2013. I discuss getting no sleep, missing my friends at Balticon, being in the middle of fiascos and having my hosting turned off, I talk about how I love comedy podcasts but I hate them using the “pioneer” terminology and shitting on their predecessors and how the world that lets them work was build by those they demean, I talk about not getting my Free Comic Book Day books that were held for me (which later I did get, this was a short-term misunderstanding, I will backtrack in audio next show). I laugh my out of the show with some spectacularly bad advice.
