An Examined Life with Jeff Allen: Jeffrey Jena

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. But h … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] Before we begin this week’s show, I need to share a story so that perhaps you can learn from my embarrassment: A number of years ago, when my wife and I were newly married, I took my lovely bride out to dinner.  It was a double date with my wife’s sister and her husband.  Now, typically, my wife and I are very careful to mind our P’s and Q’s around her sister, as we know that she has very modest sensibilities.  Public displays of affection make her very uncomfortable - as if p … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] Halloween is right around the corner. Now, remember when we were kids and the costumes consisted of cheap plastic masks with a stapled on rubber band to secure it to your face? The mask often didn’t even resemble the character your were dressed as – more like a mummified version of Superman or the Bionic Man. Plus, the mask had a tiny little slit at the mouth-ish area, which was too small to effectively breathe through, and MUCH too small to get any candy through. So, you ine … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] From the UK Independent: Rats are capable of feeling regret about their own actions, an emotion that has never previously been found in any other mammals apart from humans. (“Regret” as in, “ I wish that I hadn’t stepped into that trap because now these guys in lab coats keep sticking electrodes into my each and every orifice!”) Researchers set up a test called Restaurant Row in which the rats had to decide how long to wait for food. “It's like waiting in line at the restaur … [Read more...]

An Examined Life with Jeff Allen 17: Ron Pearson

[display_podcast] One of my favorite comedians, fellow “Apostle of Comedy”, world-champion juggler, and good friend - Ron Pearson - joins the show this week. Together, along with our host, Ryan Mischler, we talk about parenting, bringing up teenage girls and Family Game Night. By the way, according to Ron, Family Game Night sucks when you get teamed up with the five-year-old of the family. He doesn’t contribute to the effort in any way at all. He’s like the letter “K” in knot, the French in any … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] One of my favorite comedians, Brad Stine, joins the show this week fresh off the heels of being featured in the movie Persecuted with stars James Remar, Bruce Davison, and Dean Stockwell - just one more contribution to 2014’s “Year of Bible Movies”, including Noah, Son of God, Heaven Is For Real, and many others yet to be released.  One of Brad’s highlights of making the film was picking the brain of Producer Gray Frederickson of Godfather and Apocalypse Now fame.  But even mor … [Read more...]
