The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 151: No Internet Empathy & Brother Preacher

[display_podcast] We suffered a pretty terrible storm in my neck of the woods a couple weeks ago: 100 mph straight-line winds, torrential rain, the whole bag of cats and dogs!  Where we live, we were spared most of the devastation, but several o four family and friends who live closer to town were hit hard - massive destruction, no electricity for two weeks, trees uprooted, homes and cars totaled.

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 151: Wisconsin Cities, Joshua Jordan & John Crist

[display_podcast]I was driving through Wisconsin recently, and I discovered that if you are not a Wisconsin native, the names of their cities make very little sense… and this is coming from a guy from Minnesota!For example, Plover, Wisconsin is not named after the Plover bird.

[display_podcast]My good friend Dustin Nickerson is on the show again this week.  Dustin is sick and tired of losing dear friends to crossfit.  As he puts it, if you know any single person who does crossfit, then you know every single detail about crossfit.  They’re like the Jehovah Witnesses of exercise.  And their gyms are like nothing else: filled with old giant tires and monkey bars!  It’s as if the whole crossfit movement was created by someone who couldn’t afford to buy gym equipment, b … [Read more...]
