Meet My Good Friend

This is a podcast where I interview random people that I meet to prove that everyone has a story to tell. It's StoryCorps + Humans of New York, I guess. So far I've met an IT guy, a jewelery merchandiser, a crazy conspiracy theorist, a hippie chick, a hairdresser, an astronomer, a stand-up comedian, and a traveling insurance adjuster. Who will I meet next?

Jenna is the producer of Dan Savage’s Hump! dirty film festival.

Hump! is billed as “The Pacific Northwest’s biggest and best amateur-produced porn festival,”  but Hump! also travels the country with a collection of 18 of the best films from the past 10 years of Hump!

The fact that the name of the festival ends in an exclamation point is making this description difficult for me to write and I think I’ll be blocked from iTunes if I list the names of the films shown at the festival, so just listen in already.

Jenna and I talk about who makes porn to be shown on the big screen, and who watches it. We discuss the rules that the audience must obey and the limited instances of indecent exposure (from the audience. There's LOTS of it on screen). To find out where and when you can see Hump!, visit

My good friend Jenna is here to teach you all about Hump!

Meet Tim. He is from Boston and travelled in to Cleveland to watch the Celtics lose to the Cleveland Cavaliers in game 1 of the opening round of the NBA playoffs. We talk basketball, baseball, football, and Tim’s love of watching sporting events in various cities.
You will also learn what an insurance claims adjuster does, which includes, but is not limited to “I do my job.”
The real meat and potatoes of the talk is about the City of Boston and it’s various landmarks and peculiarities. For example, did you know that the entire city of Boston shuts down for a holiday called Patriots' Day where they run marathons for some reason and everyone wears Bill Belichick sleeveless hoodies?
