I'm sure it's been said many times before, so I fought the urge to lead this episode summary with, "We live in stressful times" and instead start with, "We live in differently stressful times". Sure, we don't have to outrun dinosaurs, live with the plague or live without air conditioning, but we do seem to have a lot of other things to worry about nowadays. Paying rent, saving the environment, terrorism, loss of human rights. Oh wait, those have been around for a while. Unstable President with a twitchy twitter trigger? That's new.
Joey and Kurt, being from different generations have a lot of different daily life stresses and a number of shared concerns as well. How do we cope with all this stress? Find out on an all new DOFPCAST where we talk about money, health, commitments, kids, cats and whether or not we have four more years of Pres-Stress.

A 'mega' storm hit Los Angeles creating a river outside the studio we call "The Chicken Coop". But did that stop Joey and Kurt in their pursuit of bringing you free, weekly entertainment and silliness? Heck no! We are here to meander, laugh, pick Oscars, and discuss the McDonald's menu that differs greatly from when Kurt was a youth. Plus, we are chock-full of "Audio-Theater" for you all. Hope you enjoy this hour plus of flood-induced anxiety and fun. As always, tell a friend or two about this, your favorite podcast, and subscribe and review on Itunes. It helps!

Joey and Kurt have talked about a lot of subjects over the course of the podcast, but nothing more heavy than this... DEATH! Sadly, Joey lost his grandmother recently and we felt it appropriate to honor her memory with a deep discussion of the fate we all hold. But the original recording was mysteriously ruined somehow. Ironic that a discussion of death could reach a similar fate? Yes! But we persevered in the face of adversity and sorrow and reconvened and brought the delightful Audrey Whitby to bring her perspective to the matter. And yes, though the subject matter is deep, we keep it fun and interesting while still honoring those we lost. Hope you enjoy and can find a little light even in the toughest of times.

Fresh off an amazing Super Bowl, we are here and delivering for your listening pleasure, a repeat! Or you could call it, a "re-issue" if that makes it more palatable. There is a new open to the show on this one which definitely makes it worth the download. Plus, if you are new to our podcast, it's timely subject matter. Football! Interesting to go back and listen to one of Joey and Kurt's earlier shows and see where they started to click as podcasters and see how far they've come since. Enjoy and remember, New shows on the way... Thanks, sincerely,
Jamie Kaler is a determined son of a gun. He once showed up to his neighborhood bar everyday for a month asking for a job until they relented and gave him one. It's that kind of stubborn drive and refusal to be denied that got him to Hollywood, parts on legendary shows like Friends, Will & Grace and his series regular part on TBS' "My Boys". Just under the wire of the Gen X timeline, Jamie regales us with stories about his stint in the Navy, failed pilot tests with Jenna Elfman, and getting alerted about bookings on his "beeper". Plus, fellow New Englanders, Kurt & Jamie, talk Patriots' championships and when will Joey be able to celebrate his Washington Football team in the Super Bowl? We all pick the score of the big game, so listen all the way through.
Check Jamie out on "America: Facts vs. Fiction" on the American History Channel
