Episode 111 - Aaron Woodall

On today's episode, I have comedian Aaron Woodall!

This episode is a little bittersweet as this was the final episode I recorded in Salt Lake before moving the show to Los Angeles. Prior to this episode I had only crossed paths with Aaron a few times at comedy shows, and again in 2016 when we competed against each other for a radio host job, which we both lost. It was great to learn more about Aaron on this episode, and learn more about how he started into comedy.

On the episode I talked with Aaron about getting his start with HumorU, what inspired him to start comedy, finding his comedic voice, writing comedy, touring with The Gateway Show, his VidAngel Comedy Special, and so much more. 

A huge Thank You to Aaron Woodall for taking the time to join me on the podcast before we moved the show. It was great to have him on the podcast and get to know him better and get to know more about his comedy background. Make sure to follow Aaron on all of the links on the website, go watch his special, look for his new album "Woodall Alone" soon on iTunes, and go see him if he's performing in your city!

Thanks, Aaron!

Enjoy the episode.

Episode 110 - Sam Pollard

On today's episode, I talked with Oscar Nominated, and Emmy Winning Director, Sam Pollard!

Sam's new documentary, "Maynard" tells the story of Maynard Jackson, the first African-American Mayor elected in Atlanta. I absolutely loved this filmed and was fascinated to learn the story of a political hero and icon, whose story I had never heard.

On this episode I talked with Sam about how he first heard Maynard's story, how he chooses his documentary topics, Maynard Jackson's influence in modern politics, how Maynard changed the political game, what he would hope current politicians would learn from Maynard, and more.

It was such an honor to speak with Sam about this film. A huge Thank You to Sam Pollard for taking the time out of his busy schedule to talk with me about the film. Make sure to check out the film on all of the links below and make sure to go see it when it's in your city, and when it hits steaming services. You will be thrilled to learn the story of Maynard Jackson. 

Thanks, Sam!

Enjoy the episode.

On today's episode of the podcast, I have actor Chris Sullivan! 

Chris is best know for his work on the hit show "This is Us", as well as his recent role in "Guardians of the Galaxy". We had a chance to catch up with Chris at Salt Lake Comic Con back in September in between his signing and panels. This is the shortest episode we've ever released, but the episode we were planning to attach it to never happened and I wanted to make sure that we got it released. 

We talked with Chris about his recent success with "This is Us" and "Guardians of the Galaxy", as well as his process of switching from role to role, his favorite horror movies, music that motivates him and more. 

A huge Thanks to Chris Sullivan for taking the time to talk with us during his hectic convention schedule. It was great to meet him and he couldn't have been nicer. Make sure to watch "This is Us" and pick up "Guardians of the Galaxy" on Blu-Ray today! 

Thanks, Chris!

Episode 108 - Sahna Foley

On today's episode of the podcast, I have filmmaker and actress, Sahna Foley!

I've wanted to have Sahna on the podcast for a while now and was thrilled we were finally able to make it happen. I have been friends with Sahna for several years ago, first meeting her through some animal rights initiatives online. We had a lot of mutual friends through the local film industry as well, and ended up connecting through social media. 

On the episode I talked with Sahna about how she got started in film, her passions in activism, working on political and social activist issues, getting into acting, her film "Hellskate", and so much more! 

A big Thanks for Sahna Foley for taking the time, and making the long drive down to be on the show. It was great catching up with her and learning more about her career. Make sure to follow her on all of the social media links on the website!

Today's episode is a bonus episode recorded at the LoveLoud Fest, with special guests, Neon Trees!

I sat down with the band at the LoveLoud Festival in Orem, Utah to talk about their new single "Feel Good", as well as their upcoming music, being a part of the LoveLoud Fest, and so much more.

The LoveLoud Festival was created by Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons and Barb Young, wife of Hall of Fame Quarterback, Steve Young. Their goal with LoveLoud was to bring attention to the rising suicide rates of LGBTQ Youth and show them that as a community we accept them and our arms are open to show them unconditional love and acceptance. This was such a great concept and I am glad that the festival was such a success. 

Neon Trees new single "Feel Good" released in the week leading up to the festival and it was great to see them perform this song live! If you haven't yet, go buy it on iTunes and check out the video for it on our website! You can also watch my interview with Neon Trees on our new YouTube channel. Check them out! 

Thanks to Neon Trees for taking the time to join me on the episode. It's always great to catch up with them. 

Enjoy the episode!

On today's episode, I have comedians Billy Anderson and Mike Masilotti!

I first discovered Billy's comedy through YouTube when I saw clips for a special that he recently shot for VidAngel. His special was absolutely hilarious and I invited him on the podcast as soon as I saw he was coming back to town. Mike is currently tour with Billy on "The Gateway Show Tour", so Billy brought Mike along to join the show. It was great talking to Billy and Mike and learning more about their comedy careers and meeting each other on the stand up scene in Seattle. 

On the episode we talked about Billy's struggle to find an ethernet cable, starting stand up and moving to Seattle, creating and touring "The Gateway Show, getting high at Universal Studios and so much more. 

A huge thanks for Billy and Mike for taking the time to come on the show while they were in town. My face hurt from laughing after recording with them. Make sure to follow them on the social media links at onthmicpodcat.com and you can check out Billy's stand up special on YouTube or VidAngel.

On today's episode, I sat down with Christopher James in our hotel in New York City to cover Part 2 of our visit!

We had such an incredible time in New York City, and can't wait to return. The final day I pretty much walked Christopher to death, making sure that I could show him all that Lower Manhattan had to offer. We walked 14 miles in just a matter of 5 hours! I paid for it a few days later, but as we recorded this episode, Christopher was exhausted and ready to kill me. 

On the episode, we talked about our visit to the Seinfeld Diner (Tom's Restaurant), visiting Times Square, Christopher almost getting conned by a Monk, cruising down the Hudson to see the Statue of Liberty, attend the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, getting to talk to Colbert, Midtown Comics, Central Park, and so much more!

New York City didn't let us down, and I look forward to returning in October for New York Comic Con. It's always a great time in New York, and it was great being able to show Christopher around the city. Thanks for having us New York! 

Enjoy the episode!

On today's episode, we recap Day 1 of our time in New York City!

I sat down with Christopher James at our hotel, Pod 51, in New York to talk about our incredible experiences during our first day in town. This is Christopher's first time in New York, but I had a great time being able to show him around the city. He's absolutely terrified of rats and is convinced he's going to see one, and for my own sadistic humor sake, I really hope he does. 

During our Day 1 recap, we talk about Christopher's bad flight experience, arriving to the city, our new hotel, visiting NBC Studios and 30 Rock, the Empire State Building, talking to Seth Meyers, and so much more! 

This first day was absolutely incredible! This episode is a little but shorter of an episode since it was just our first day, but the next episode will cover quite a bit. Day 2 and 3 and so much packed into them as well. Stay tuned for Part 2 of our New York coverage in next weeks episode! Check out our social media pages for all of the pictures and updates from our time in New York City. 

Enjoy the episode!
