We hit 100 episodes! We’re pretty excited about this accomplishment. We both really enjoy doing the podcast and we want to thank all of you who listen and who have given us such great and supportive feedback.
We’re celebrating today by having a special guest on the podcast: Chris Daily. Chris is an improviser who performs with us at National Comedy Theatre, which is where we all met. Chris is also a very talented artist who does storyboards, caricatures, and all kinds of other stuff. Most importantly, he’s just a cool guy.
Today we start off by talking about the effects alcohol can have on the human brain. We know it isn’t smart to drink and drive, but are there any skills that improve as you drink? Everyone has had the experience of having a few drinks and becoming amazing at playing darts or pool in the bar. What other skills does this apply too? Do you get better or worse at doing the dishes at home as you drink? What about judging the quality of a TV show or movie? We think an experiment is in order.
Talking about drinking of course leads us to talking about Las Vegas. We discuss the nature of objects in Vegas and how they are all huge and oddly shaped. We also talk about what it means for a place to be a “vacation spot”. We all live in San Diego which doesn’t feel like a vacation spot to us because we live here. People who live in Vegas probably feel the same way. We suppose, a vacation spot is pretty much any place that isn’t where you live.
Finally, we finish up this week by talking about Star Trek. You read that right: not Star Wars, Star Trek. We’re mixing it up this time. Which scifi universe has cooler technology? When it comes to holograms, the Star Trek folks have the Star Wars folks beat.
Give us a listen and then tell your friends about the podcast: spread the word! Also, if you want to check out some of Chris Daily’s art you can visit him at his webpage: www.chrisdaily.com. Also, check him out on twitter: @scribblemonkey.
