ONE YEAR! It's the one-year anniversary of this show!  Thank you! Thank you for listening and supporting this little show where we point and laugh at our own feelings.  You're the best, and you're the only reason we're here.

And as it's been a year, Dave decided it's about time he put himself under the microscope.  His good friend, Jake Weisman, agreed to come in and play the role of host for an hour.  They discussed many-a-thing, but mostly low self-esteem and not being liked.  Dave is convinced that no one likes him, and he realizes that it's insane to think so when he has very real friends in his life, but he nonetheless has a lot of trouble shaking the feeling that no one likes him.  He and Jake discuss that, where it comes from, why it persists, what it does to his life and relationships, and how to possibly get rid of it. They also play a soundbyte that Tony Thaxton made over and over and over again.

Mike Lawrence is a comedian and writer based in New York City.  He and Dave discuss what it's like to be an open mic comedian, and to be an up-and-coming comic in a big scene.  In the same vein, they discuss

Emily Gordon is a writer, performer, producer and host of the podcast The Indoor Kids (also on Nerdist).  She is also a former therapist, and in recovery from hating herself!  Emily and Dave discuss what makes one hate oneself, and what one does to combat it -- the walls put up and the facades presented.  They also discuss getting better! And feeling better.  And the road to being a happy person.  They laugh a lot.  Like a whole lot.

This episode was recorded live from O'Leaver's Pub in Omaha, Nebraska, during the second annual Crom Comedy Festival!  Dave is noticeably hungover and devoid all of nutrients in his diet.  His guests were hometown hero and hilarious comedian, Ryan De La Garza, who outlined his fear that he may have a child somewhere in the world.  Next came the undeniable Ben Kronberg, who discussed decision-making and an inability to do so, along with some not-so-subtle jabs at Roseanne. And finally, the Puterbaugh Sisters, a comic duo from Chicago who stole the festival for Dave with their stories of what they dislike about each other.  Big ups to Ian Douglas Terry and the rest of OK Party Comedy for putting together such a magnificent festival.

Kevin White is a stand-up comic and podcast host in Chicago, IL.  He and Dave made fast friends at a show in Kevin's home town of St. Louis, MO, and moved quickly to record this episode together at Crom Fest a few weeks later.  They talk the anxieties of being a touring comedian, and a social person who is also a comedian, and a comedian who wants other comedians to like him, and more.  Also...  DAVE CRIES. Kevin got Dave to cry.  It took 45 episodes, and Dave, at long last, cried on his show.  He loved it.

Recorded live at The High Watt in Nashville, Tennessee and masterfully produced by Brandon Jazz (of Corporate Juggernaut), this episode features three undeniably great performers -- John-Michael Bond, Julia Luce and Coco Hames.  Each of their mini-interviews was riddled with laughs and intensity for completely a different reason than the next.  Also, it was raining outside and Dave got scared.
