The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 120: “Human Being Origins”, Chris Rossetti & Ron Pearson

[display_podcast] I like thoughtful debates. But when I worked full-time in radio, we would get the strangest phone calls from listeners; and I rarely had an opportunity to have a thoughtful discussion. I remember a time when I was about 19 and I had just finished a book about etymology, which is the study of word origins. I learned that root word “ped” means “foot”. Therefore, this is where we get the English words “pedestrian”, “pedometer”, and “pedicure”. This may not seem very interesting t … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 119: Flies, Joby Saad & Michael French

[display_podcast] Summer’s over and while we don’t get many houseflies this time of year, the ones that do enter into our home seem quite lethargic.  Maybe it’s due to age.  Maybe it’s just their perspective on life.  I mean, think about it - on a typical day, a common indoor housefly will look at a person and think: “Okay… that human beast is about 600 times larger than me.  It can crush me into oblivion instantly.  I think I’ll land on his face.” They’re not very bright.  And they’re even mo … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 118: Giving Thanks with Sam Beman and Kristin Weber

[display_podcast] It’s good manners to be thankful, so we have this holiday once a year to remember to be thankful. But, why not have other “manner-related” holidays? Pleasegiving. We could have it the day before Thanksgiving, and if you don’t do Pleasegiving, you don’t get to eat Thanksgiving. Other potential holidays: OpenTheDoorForStrangersGiving, NoInteruptingConversationsGiving, ForkOnTheLeftOfThePlatesGiving, CoverYourNoseWhenYouSneezeGermsNonGiving, NoBelchingInElevatorsGiving… just a … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 117: Taking Medicine, Daniel Woodrow & Michael Jr.

[display_podcast] When my five-year-old gets the flu, he gets beyond miserable! He makes you want to cry, just from looking at him. He says he would do anything to feel better. Anything but take medicine, apparently. Because, at this point, any reasonable human being would take their medicine and enjoy the relief that God has blessed us with through modern medicine. But my son is simply not reasonable.“Wait! Does this medicine taste like the world’s finest candy?”“No. It’s going to tas … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 116: Dads Can’t Read, Nick Arnette & Peder Eide

[display_podcast] If I ever decide to read a book instead of watch TV, and my family sees me reading… they fall all over themselves, trying to put a stop to my reading. I have no idea why. They see a man reading and then, at that moment, they have to throw every single distraction humanly possible at me. Now, if a child is reading a book, it’s treated like a holy occasion. Everyone walks on tiptoe, they lower their voices. Someone may light a candle in reverence and form a choir. Someone will de … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 115: Pastor Duncan, Jacob Danielson & Happy Fun Time

[display_podcast] My pastor just celebrated 25 years at our church. Twenty-five years! He’s a real funny guy and is always making me laugh during his sermons. Unfortunately, I attend a church that is mostly Scandinavians, so I’m the only one who laughs out loud. Sudden public burst of laughter just doesn’t seem to be in our genetic make up. Nevertheless, my pastor is one of my best friends. But, he’s always frustrating me because he perpetually dresses better than I do. For instance, if I go t … [Read more...]
