Bringing Laughter to Power
A chat about comedy, racism, fatherhood and Covid Traps.
This podcast episode features a chat with my good friend, Jd Michaels, who is one of the smartest and funniest people I know.
Of course that’s not to say the rest of my friends aren’t smart. No, it’s quite the opposite. All of my friends are geniuses. They only associate with me to gain tax credits for fulfilling a government “Dunce Quota.”
Thankfully Jd, a man of varied experience and good attitude, knows the quicker he placates my half-witted ramblings, the sooner he can get back to creating the multitude of projects which make the world a better and more joyous place.
I thank him for his patience. I also thank you for yours, since you’ll be listening in as he and I discuss what influenced his comedic insight, how fatherhood has helped broadened his perceptions, plus how comedy has helped him confront hatred and racism.
I hope you enjoy the show.
