Jackie Kashian is a world-touring comic based in Los Angeles, CA.  She and Dave talk death, and the fear of death, and the fear of not dying well.  She's been surrounded with death the past few years, yet somehow laughs and jokes about it extensively.  Also!  The show upgrades!  Dave is so excited.  More radio sweepers and more segments and Anna Seregina helps host and Dave is so excited.  Just so excited.

Daniel Van Kirk is a comic actor and performer in Los Angeles, CA.  He's had an unconventional trajectory in comedy, and he and Dave talk about it.  He's afraid of being pigeon-holed as one of his characters, and bothered by not having a crew or homebase in comedy, and they talked about that, too.  Daniel and Dave have a burgeoning friendship that will, hopefully for both of them, blossom into something years- and years-long.

Dave Waite is a comedian from Ohio, and currently based in Los Angeles, California.  Dave (Ross) is a huge fan of his, and he honestly would not shut up about it on the episode.  They discuss laziness, and the fear of failure that comes along with being afflicted with laziness.  They also go on some rants about hecklers and policing comedy, and proceed to get horribly self-conscious about what they said.

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.

Andy Juett is a stand-up comic, writer, actor, director, producer and father in Denver, Colorado.  He and Dave discussed his occasional feelings of being overwhelmed by these things, as well as his divorce, recent breakup, and subsequent fear of being alone.  The episode closes with some realizations that they both have been led horribly astray by romantic comedies.

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
what it is to be mean when you're young, and to feel remorse about it later in life.

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.
