Dudes of Future/Past

Never has a podcast had more fun analyzing the likes and differences of Millennials and Generation X. Comedians Kurt Long and Joey Bragg build bridges between generations using laughter, wit, understanding and nonsense. Joey's youthful exuberance, humor and determination are a great contrast to the more experienced Kurt's cautious skepticism and sarcasm. Together they dissect topics of the day from the perspectives of two entertainment industry professionals separated by 20+ years while providing plenty of laughs and insight. Neither claim to be experts or take themselves too seriously, so their conversations are always hilarious, cutting, and unique.

If you’re one of those people who get a little melancholy around the holidays, then boy, is this the podcast for you! A strange episode, even by our already strange standards. Joey is noticeably downbeat, bemoaning the state of affairs and isn’t too optimistic with what the New Year brings. We recorded this show before Xmas and after we saw Star Wars: Ep 8 The Last jedi. So we aren’t going to spoil what you’re getting from Santa, but we may spoil plot points as we review the latest film. If you haven’t seen it, stop at the halfway point. Otherwise, forgive the slightly strange tone. There is still a lot of love, a little positivity and a teensy bit of hope and anticipation of 2018. Thanks for being the greatest fan/downloader ever! Let us know your hopes for the new year! And stay tuned for our end of the year wrap up!

Hello and Thanks for downloading! We've got a fun-filled episode in your earballs. Kurt and Joey start off the show with a fun discussion of sex-education problems, Joey's reluctance to joke about boobs, and why are we so darn infatuated with them? About 15 minutes in, we get a little serious about the recent Michael Flynn issue, Trump's tweets and the cowardly passing of the tax bill. At the 30 minute mark, we shift back to fun with our weekly mystery celebrity birthday. Then (45:00 approx) we introduce our latest (and greatest?) segment, "Splooge from the Past!" (working on the title) where we dig into the archives of our lives and find GEMS!! Joey recites Kurt's 5th grade poetry, Kurt re-enacts Joey's facebook thread, and a post-break-up Hallmark card.

Welcome to another edition of DOFP! In this episode we kick off Thanksgiving week with a contest aimed at giving gratitude to all of our loyal listeners! Details on how to win a spot on a future episode are given right at the top of the show. Plus, you can check our Instagram stories for more info: @joeybragg @mrkurtlong or @dofpcast 

Then Kurt and Joey dive into the latest controversy surrounding the new Star Wars: Battlefront II game, and how greed has taken a higher priority over gameplay in the video game world. 

And then Joey tells Kurt about his upcoming first trip to Las Vegas while Kurt reminisces about his 30 or so prior trips. Are strip clubs and gambling still the main draw? Or is it all about the shows, spas and spectacle for millennials? 

Thanks again for downloading, reviewing and listening! Have a great Thanksgiving!

Nov 11, 2017

Joey and Kurt are joined by Audrey Whitby and Jessica Marie Garcia to talk about all the firsts that happened in the recent election. Then we dive into the recent rash of sexual harassment issues that, for lack of a better term, have sprung up lately. What's the deal with powerful men, including Louis CK, Roy Moore, Kevin Spacey and others? Then we brighten the mood with a (mostly) positive review of Thor: Ragnarok. Something for everyone in this raucous discussion spanning the generations!

Welcome to another fantastic episode! You, kind listener, are in for a wonderful episode where the Dudes talk about all the things Kurt's generation enjoyed before Joey's generation came along to destroy them. And since it's World Series time, (and boy do we hear a lot about it out here in Los Angeles, for some reason...), we discuss the future of Baseball as a sport. Will the slow pace, high prices, and extensive schedule spell doom with a younger generation whose attention span is low and excitement barometer is high?

Plus, we examine a Forbes.com article that claims millennial folk are also killing 5 other staples of the Generation X lifestyle. Does Joey agree? Does he relish the opportunity to kill Kurt's Past? Does Sylvester Stallone drop by for a quick chat? You'll know soon! Enjoy the show!

The Dudes have their favorite Lady Dude in the studio, Audrey Whitby, to discuss the recent Weinstein news, the effect on Hollywood and gender relations in general. What does all this recent news mean for sexuality? Well, we (Literally) roll the love dice to let fate how we are going to approach each other from now on. We also review "Good Place", Michael Schur programs, Flea Bag, Roseanne, and American Vandal. And is "Solo" a good enough name for the new Star Wars film?

The Comedy Film Nerd himself, Chris Mancini joins the Dudes for a chat about the new & old Blade Runner films, fatherhood, running a podcast festival and if replicants use Vape Pens. SPOILER ALERT! 

If you haven't seen the Blade Runner 2049, just download and listen to this show afterwards. If you haven't watched the original (7 versions of) Blade Runner, then what's wrong with you? Don't you like Harrison Ford? He's an American Treasure!

Listen in as we diagnose the first film vs. the new one, If the Replicants are an allegory for slavery and when can we get a JOI bot? Big thanks to the great Chris Mancini for loaning us his Movie Expertise. If you'd like to laugh and hear all about great cinema, listen to Comedy Film Nerds podcast hosted by Chris and his co-host, Graham Elwood on the All Things Comedy podcast network.

We pledge to be a comedy heavy podcast, but that seems to be tougher and tougher these days. But we also pledge to bridge the gap between generations in regards to current events and societal issues. Again, usually with humor. So we try our best in this podcast to soldier on in the face of the worst mass shooting in America's history and the death of another American musical icon. So, even if you think you've heard it all about these topics, have a listen anyway. We not only discuss the events, but dig deep into other topics.

Like;

parenting in a time of terror, The Brady Bill, The Second Amendment & Muskets, and more.

Plus, we pay respects to Tom Petty with a Dude medley of some of his biggest hits.

And ending on a light note, we discuss the latest trend of "Stealthing" which is probably worse than it sounds. Enjoy!!

Thanks to everyone who downloads, subscribes and listens.

PETER & TONY has been released! It's on Funny or Die and the brand new Dudes of Future/Past YouTube Channel! Please go check it out and share with everyone! EVERYONE!!!! 

http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/ebaca0f285/peter-tony-episode-1-underoos

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9lwjSVlCHE&t=100s

Our show focuses on the upheaval involving the National Anthem, our suggestions for a new version, and is it UnPatriotic to Kneel before a sporting event?

We start the show very excited, discussing our Peter & Tony launch, the YouTube Channel and our upcoming visit to the @LAPodfest

Then we get a sugar rush with an unplanned Ice Cream truck break and wonder what the business model is for such a venture? Bro/Step-Sis Porn problems. The lineage of Francis Scott Key. And why is there so much talk about Kneeling!?!!?

Kurt, Joey and special guest, Audrey Whitby dissect Stephen King's classic, old and new. Let's face it, new versions of old things usually have a hard time matching the original. So, just to be sure, Joey & Audrey watched the ABC miniseries version of "IT" before picking up Kurt and heading to the multiplex to watch the 2017 Film version. Have a listen to find out which Pennywise was more horrifying, which cast of kids were more horrified and which version won the battle of Future/Past. 

Plus, we discuss Joey's browser history, which is more polite, "Boobs" or "Knockers" and whether or not it's "cool" to keep Playboy magazines out in the open. And so much more!!!

We aren't ones who immediately jump to the worst conclusion, but even we at DOFPCAST are a little more than concerned with recent events. Multiple devastating Hurricanes, flooding, a fiery Burbank, Trump is still in office and Kim Jong Un is feeling frisky with the Nuke button. Sounds like the "end of the world as we know it".  (Thanks REM)

Dark as it seems, we keep calm and carry on. Joey and Kurt discuss what it was like to live in the Cold War and watch it dissolve, only to seemingly reappear today. Can Millennials fathom the country-wide fear-inducing phenomenon, "The Day After"? And what are your suggestions for making Kim Jong Un a little more cuddly?

We here at the DOFPCast aren't haters. Not our style. But there is something about Jake Paul that annoys the hell out of us. So we talk about it here. Is he using his 'influencer' powers for good or evil. Or is he even smart enough to have a plan?

We also discuss the YouTube generation, where it started, who is on top now and where it's going. From PewDiePie to Rhett & Link to Miranda Sings, we cover it most.

Also on the podcast:

- Previous podcast update on the Drake and Josh situation.

- Ed Skrein gives up a huge film role in the name of inclusivity. He's so awesome! follow @edskrein

- Help out Hurricane Harvey victims in Houston. Donate to the Red Cross, United Way, Salvation Army, etc.

Friday 8/18/2017 - The day after Kurt saw Hamilton. Finally! It's been a long wait since Kurt discovered the musical, it's songbook, and had purchased season seats at the Pantages over a year ago so that he could secure Hamilton tickets. And it was all worth it!! We discuss Hamilton, the live event versus the soundtrack experience, taking the family and NOT sharing a table at Shake Shack with strangers. 

In the second half of the podcast we delve into the horrors that occurred last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia and the aftermath a week later. It does get serious and dark at points but Joey & Kurt resolve to do all they can to keep hope and happiness alive. 

Please send us your thoughts on possible charities and causes Dudes of Future/Past can help out with and promote.

As our sociological podcast experiment pitting Millennials versus Generation X continues, we dip into how a Millennial gets made! The millennial in question is none-other then our very own Co-host, Joey Bragg! And our special Guests are his parents, Melanie & Ken. They are here to answer all the important questions, like - "How did you meet and fall in love?", "What was Joey like as a young kid?", and "When did you know he was going to be America's Sweetheart?" It's a super fun show with a lot of laughs, singing Frasier's theme song, and discussing all the uncomfortable topics related to family, fame, sex and relationships. 

We are also #BLESSED to have the beautiful and talented Audrey Whitby on the show to help ease Joey's nerves related to having his relations on the show. 

Please let us know how we are doing:

Join the party as we feature a star-studded celebration of Joey's 21st birthday features some of our great friends dropping by to raise a glass to the now-legal-drinking-age cohost! So Joey and Kurt quickly get "Merry" as the show goes along. It's our most outrageous, funny and sometimes emotional shows ever! We have a Liv & Maddie Reunion featuring Kali Rocha, Tenzing Trainor, Jessica Marie Garcia, Victoria Moroles, Jimmy Bellinger, Shelby Wulfert, Shak Gacha and Lucas Adams, along with Audrey & Maddy Whitby and so many more.

Jul 24, 2017

Celebrating a full year of podcasting, the Dudes are happy to welcome former "Liv & Maddie" co-star and current friend, Shelby Wulfert @shelbywulfert . Shelby not only brings her delightful demeanor but also a lesson in Veganism. We discuss our carnivorous ways and if we could ever go "no meat". We dine on an all-vegan lunch and discuss it's merits. Will the boys be pulled to the Vegan side? Listen and find out.

Plus, right at the top, we get a special guest appearance from Joey's Mom, who called right as we were beginning to record. We think Mom might have to make a regular call-in to the show! Let us know if you feel the same: dudes@dudesoffuturepast.com

or @dofpcast on twitter and instagram.

 

And yes, there's a tiny bit of Audio Theater but, well, see what Shelby does to it...

Joey is seeing the last few days of 20 fly by as we discuss the upcoming 21st Birthday and what it all means. Will Joey go on a drinking/gambling binge? Does he have any special plans for his first "legal ID" booze purchase? Or is it just a number? And can Kurt even remember his 20's? We discuss this big life moment and encourage all of you to peruse Joey's Amazon wishlist for his birthday on the 20th of July.

Plus we take a long look at Gender Fluidity! Did Vogue magazine screw up with it's article claiming Zane and Gigi are practically fluid because they share clothes? Twitter seems to think so. Or is it better to just get the conversation out there, even if it is a little overblown?

We discuss bathroom issues for the Gender issues that weren't around in Kurt's youth. Will future generations even care about gender? And how can we all learn to accept each other?  Yeah, we get a little deep!

Of course, we have some hilarious Audio Theater for you!

Hit us up on email, we love hearing from you:

It's Bastille day and the birthday of theme song writer/producer, former guest, Michelle Lewis! Michelle and her husband, Dan, were kind enough to visit us in the 'Coop' on a record day, in order to get a feel for the show in order to write our theme song. We convinced them to be guests on the show and it's probably one of our best ideas yet. Michelle and Dan were delightful, funny and so interesting. So we thought it'd be a fun way to celebrate her efforts to go back and insert the theme song she worked so hard on, into the show she appeared on. Joey's audio is a little low at the top but it gets better throughout. (we were such a young podcast back then, so audio issues happened). Enjoy!

And please don't forget to spread the word about the podcast. Tell friends, share links, rate and review on Itunes! 

Look for a brand new show on Monday where we discuss Joey turning 21. Send him Birthday Love (7/20 is the date) on twitter and instagram @joeybragg

We did it! We made it to the BIG 5-0! So thankful to you for downloading, subscribing, writing positive reviews and trashing @TomHanks on twitter in our behalf! Couldn't do the show without you, fair listener! And to reward you for your patronage, we present one of our best shows yet! A 50 Ep-stravaganza, if you will. Won't you?

Today's show is all about (mostly) Spider-man! We review the latest, "Spider-man: Homecoming", (Spoiler Alert) give out our "Acting MVP's", and rate the entire Spider-man movie canon. (Well, not the super-old made-for-TV one) Who is our favorite webslinger; Tobey, Andrew or Tom? Listen and find out!

Plus we bring a bag full of "Audio Theater" and welcome our secret producer, Curtis Marlborough, along with special guests, "Mark Wahlberg" and "Sly Stallone". It get's crazy. 

Thank you for listening and spreading the word about the show and write to @LAPodfest about having us there!

Have a great week!
