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.

We ain't dead yet! Huge apologies to our loyal fans that have been left hanging waiting for a new episode and even bigger thanks to all of you who have stuck with us! We are back with another fun filled episode and a promise to make it a regular event once again. Having begun to get the hang of the Skype record, we hope to have regular episodes in your inbox weekly (or bi-weekly). And when I say we are getting the hang of the Skype recording, I mean, it's still sounds a little different, but we are making efforts to perfect it so its not distracting.

Your pals Joey and Kurt tear through the news, including Trump, Kurt's lack of Trump in Canada, turning pescatarian, Aretha Franklin's wake & wardrobe changes, Louis CK's return, & MORE!

After over a month long hiatus from regular podcasting, the boys are back with an international flair. Kurt calls from his new home in Canada, connecting with Joey in his California digs. Be warned, it's our first Skype-cast, so the sound is off and the vibe is a little different, but something I'm sure will be remedied over time. 

K & J recap their recent drive together from L.A. to Vancouver, BC. Hear how the boys conquered the Redwoods of California, the beaches of the Oregon coast, and the Tantrums of day 3 stresses. Plus, Kurt learns how he's an "ugly American" in a Canadian Home Depot. Joey bemoans having to share his 22nd birthday with the release of his @Netflix film, "Father of the Year". AND, Puppy love in Union City!

Hit up our instagram: @dofp_podcast to catch some of the pics from our trip!

Plus, Follow Kurt Long's Youtube page and new instagram, @Idontspeakcanadian to see all of his life lessons from his new home in Canada.

Back from a little Memorial Day break, the Dudes get into it with some fresh "Audio Theater" and a lot of talk about the trouble male genitalia causes. Morgan Freeman lives up to his Shawshank-ness, Roseanne drops a 60 million dollar tweet and ABC does the right thing! Plus, Elderly fun at the Paul Simon Concert!

Seriously, there's some extensive porn talk in this one so don't let the kids listen. Or listen with them and just explain that we are idiots.

We get sparring with the delightful Oscar Nunez! You know him from about 200 episodes of "The Office" on @NBC & "People of Earth" on @TBS It's a wonderful conversation that touches on Trump's wrong-doings, Castro, Dental definitions, Trump, Boxing, Repping the Gay community, Trump crimes, and a bit of basketball. You're going to love it! This is the greatest podcast of all time, BELIEVE ME! Okay, it's a really, really good one.

SPECIAL EPISODE! @kurtlong & @joeybragg assembled our own super group to discuss Marvel's "Avengers Infinity War". We had a great, deep, super-nerdy at times, dismantling discussion about the film that is just perfect for all you Marvel geeks out there. We were honored to get great input from our pals Adam Celorier @amcpinball on IG, Shak Ghacha @simplyshak and Jordan Wilson. If you're a Marvel fan who likes to deep dive on all the MCU minutia, then this is the podcast for you! Hoping to do more Marvel movie discussions in the future, so if you like this one, let us know on Twitter, @dofpcast

There are a lot of reasons to do a podcast... Self-promotion, an urge to entertain and inform, and the best reason, as exampled with this episode, is to have incredible conversations with friends like the marvelous Mary Gallagher. Mary jumped right into the flow of the show like she'd been part of the gang forever! We had a blast with Mary, discussing her upcoming appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Social Media Etiquette, Sex Education for kids, Apple Geniuses, Ludites or Loot Crates, Prank shows and being "Ready" for TV. Make sure you set your DVR's for Mary's Late Show set later on in May (exact date TBD), and for her appearance in the @thekevinhealey produced "Terrence Howard's Fright Club" on Fox, May 24th. 

Follow Mary on all social media: @myfriendmary

April is National Autism Awareness Month, and we at Dudes of Future/Past wanted to do our part to recognize that, learn about Autism and help bring to light some of the issues involved therein. So what better time to interview our new friend, author of the book "Population One: Autism, Adversity, and the Will to Succeed", Tyler McNamer. Tyler is an inspirational Millennial with autism who is working to educate people about Autism and help those with it find jobs through his organization, AutismWorks.com - You're going to love Tyler's positive spirit and his story. Please check out his book, his website and do what you can to help understand more about Autism.

We love having guests on the program, meeting interesting folks with fantastic lives and all, but nothing like a F/P episode with the just the OG crew of Kurt and Joey! As evidenced with our discussion out of the box about the president's penis, we are in rare form! 

If you choose to download and listen, you are in for a hilarious hour of conversation and imagination. We delve into what a radio show starring our pets would sound like, leading us into a deep discussion of artistic thievery. When a band sounds just like a legendary rock group, is it an homage or straight up robbery? Does the same go for re-hashing old scripts and storylines? Who is the biggest example of musical mischief? And is Beck one of the all-time originals?

Plus Joey explains the FarCry video game series to Kurt and spoils the ending of FarCry5, which he just recently conquered. So if you don't want to know what happens in FC5, skip three minutes from 45:00 to 48:00. 

And, an all new trivia game, called "Pluck the Canuck!" and who is getting a call from Facebook about their data being hacked?!

It may not mean a bunch to you all, but for me, this is a miracle episode!!! Joey and Kurt recorded this a couple of weeks ago and then, because of a computer error, thought it was lost to a software crash. Then, after a deep dive into the files, we were able to extract this gem, saving it from the ashes and presenting it to you now! So enjoy this "missing" episode!

We discuss (and perform) a prostate exam, talk about our mutual Olympic fever and Curler jokes, Canadian Fetish Rap, Super Bowl results, Logan Paul, Rex Orange County concerts and finally, the history of Eugenics in America brought back to the headlines due to a criminal case where the judge asked the criminal to get sterilized. Find out about how early 1900's America inspired Hitler and what does it mean today?!

Please download, subscribe and review wherever you listen and share!

Love you all!

We are perilously close to the Academy Awards telecast where the film industry awaits a big pat on the back and, hopefully, a fatter wallet. The arguments over which is the best film or performance of the year have been raging for months. SO what does make a "BEST" movie? Or what even qualifies it to be a nominee? Freelance film critic, Michael Ordona talks about his criteria for a great film. He also discusses Oscar winners Past and Future, the ones that don't deserve the accolades and the ones he thinks were snubbed.

At about 20:00 mark we go deep into the Nerdverse with a discussion of Marvel and DC films, possibly spin-offs, and if "Cape and tights movies" could ever win a "Best Picture". Will Performance Capture artists ever have an Oscar category? We also get into the ranking systems, if past "Best" films pass the 5-year rule. Don't miss our follow-up podcast with Michael where we make all the Oscar picks and predictions!

We here at DOF/P Podcast already knew we were fortunate fellows who have had a fun career and fantastic fans. But after talking to our contest winner, Ryan Lee, we were struck by the power and potential of our show. Ryan is not only one heck of a nice guy who has exquisite taste in podcasts and comedy actors, but he also bravely discusses his life with Autism. We are happy to give him and other's dealing with Autism a tiny megaphone to promote awareness and hope to get others to help deal with the issue. Not only did Ryan put a big smile on our faces, he also tugged at our heartstrings with an emotional and soul-bearing essay that he wrote about his life and Autism. Please take a look at AutismSpeaks.Org and donate what you can to the cause.

It's dudes and dudettes for an in-depth look at diversity in the industry! DOFP regulars, Audrey Whitby and Jessica Marie Garcia join Kurt and Joey to talk about Jess' new @Netflix show, "On My Block" (starting March 16th), making unheard, diverse stories for TV & Film, educating the ignorant, and America's greatest export, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Plus, Kurt and Jess clear the air about the Golden Globes comments, and how we can tip the scales in favor of the dreamers. Audio Theater, new types of confetti cannons, and so much more!

Jan 22, 2018

We're feeling SUPER about our sit-down with Cooper Barnes, star of Nickelodeon's hit, "Henry Danger" and the new animated series, "The Adventures of Kid Danger". Joey, Kurt and Coop have a lively conversation that winds through the topic of 'Predator' weddings, politics, He-Man's tan, obsessed fans, how Cooper got into Superhero shape, and the unique relationship between co-stars 20 plus years apart in age. We were even lucky enough to have Cooper join us in a little "Audio Theater"! So while you're setting your DVR for Nickelodeon, Friday's at 6:30 to catch the animated version of "Captain Man" - you can enjoy the real 'Man', Cooper and the Dudes in this fun-filled episode!

Starting off the 2018 with a huge episode! (and that's not a fat joke). We've got the creators, writers, executive producers of Disney's Liv And Maddie, John D. Beck and Ron Hart. We do discuss if "fat jokes" are too easy, what inspires a hit show, and how Joey went from "Sticky" to Joey. We also delve into where it all began for these two Hollywood hunks and what it was like to jump from Disney to Disjointed. What is the Future for television? And when the heck is their new show, "Knight Squad" airing on Nickelodeon? 

Look for their work on Netflix's "Disjointed" January 12th
