An-Examined-Life-Square-Icon

[display_podcast] Comedian Jeffrey Jena, one of my closest friends on the planet, joins the show as we reminisce about our hazy early days in stand up comedy – which leads directly to memory loss due to getting older and frying brain cells when we were younger. You see, where some people have problems remembering things and simply blame it on a “senior moment”, Jeffrey and I know that there are entire sections of our cranium that were burned out at a Led Zeppelin concert in the mid-70’s.
