Sorry for the late cast, but this one is fresh off the mics. (insert Fire emoji) Yes, that's right, we just recorded this minutes before it's release. SO we're supes topical. Fresh off Thanksgiving, we discuss Holiday Traditions and how we blindly follow them. And as our tradition, we meander from there to topics of mental illness, Death, Black Friday and of course, our weekly tradition, "NOT FOR ME" segment. It's a fun filled episode to be sure. We also have a NEW RECURRING SEGMENT, "Audio Theater", SO hope you like it. Oh and we have a CONTEST THIS WEEK. LISTEN AND WIN. Email us your thoughts, criticism, praise and money to Dudes@dudesoffuturepast.com.

This time of year, it's common to look back over the events of the past 11 months, bemoan the problems and hope for the future. And who are we to buck that tradition? Joey & Kurt discuss the events of 2016 and try to put a positive spin on it all and somehow, express Thanks. I mean, that's what we are all supposed to do, right? Be thankful? It's Thanksgiving after all. And that means fun get togethers with delicious food, moderation, and delightful conversation. Or is it? Being Dudes of Future/Past, we discuss how the holiday has changed for us from the days of our youth to now when it's a lot more of a hassle. Which house are you eating at? Is your weird uncle going to be there? When do we stop just feeding into 'tradition' and start enjoying yourself, guilt-free? Probably never if family is involved. But compared to the first Thanksgiving, it's all gravy. Please forgive all of our factual miscues when we imagine the Pilgrims and the Native American's original dinner....
Speaking of Thanksgiving, we want to wish you a happy one. It's only been 5 months since we've started this podcast and it's amazing the response we've gotten so far. Hope you have a stress-free holiday filled with family and friends that are more awesome than obligation. And of course, thanks to all the great folks who have helped make @dofpcast a reality. Shout out to Dave Cogan, Chris Holmes, Michelle Lewis and all our previous guests to date.

2016 has been an uneasy year in a lot of ways. In addition to one of the most bizarre presidential races in history, the year was also marred by the deaths of so many talented and celebrated artists. This week, that trend continued. Donald J. Trump becomes the President-Elect (and yes, we are all holding off as long as we can before just calling him 'President') and we also lost poet/musician, Leonard Cohen. The hits just keep coming... And now the nation is in full upheaval, with the losing side hitting the streets to protest and vocalize their displeasure. Some on the other side, the so-called victors who take Trump's win as just the empowerment they needed to be the worst versions of themselves, are telling anyone who isn't their skin tone that they are going to have to leave. And it's not just people in rural areas getting attacked. Celebrities in Hollywood are being called "Cucks" to their faces in bars and being prodded to fight. Oh, and our sweet, lovable Joey Bragg... well, he's been arrested! Listen in and find out all about his ordeal and so much more. And let's be better out there people!
Reeling from last night's horror show of an election result, Joey & Kurt convene to get the raw, rambling and real reaction to the announcement that Donald J. Trump will be given the keys to the kingdom. I'll be honest, it's not a lot of laughs in this episode. Try as we might, it was just too hard in the face of the recent news that our country just made what could be the biggest mistake of its history. We go through all the stages of grief here and hope it helps you cope with whatever it is you're going through right now as well. It was somewhat cathartic for us to get it all out but in the end, we are still stuck facing a very uncertain future. But we are determined to not go quietly, but rather strengthen our resolve that we must promote love, kindness, equal opportunity, tolerance and understanding. So, if you agree or disagree with us, have a listen and let us know how we can move forward and improve this country. Fingers crossed....
