Awhile back I got an email from the Current Earthly Embodiment of Lord Mandek Penha, creator and leader of the Church of Sarrean Alignment about their new album on Spotify! I was able to track him down on the phone from what is apparently the restroom of an international airport somewhere in the middle of the night.
For guest Alexis Hunter there was no woman in the world more beautiful than television’s Marilyn Munroe, Joi Lansing. Born in Utah, Joi rose to fame in Los Angeles to become a major blonde bombshell — appearing on the cover to LIFE magazine, starring alongside Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, appearing on the Beverly Hillbillies as a regular, offered a contract by Lucille Ball — hit on by Marilyn Munroe! Alexis got to meet Joi — and then they fell in love!

Ever felt like life was going to break you? You need to bend! That was the lesson learned with Edina from Silika Contortion in Toronto during a great conversation I had with her!
We’ll talk about contortion, her trip from being a university student with chronic arthritis pain and constant stress to living her dream as a performer with strength and grace — like dealing with life. We’ll talk about how her stretching and contortion has directly helped her fight her inner demons. There’s much more to this than simply stretching!
This week I talk with Brianna, aka “Milky” Morena in Japan! Morena moved to Osaka when she was 18 and has been there for almost a year. While there, she has put out YouTube videos and Instagram stories where she shares about being a young black woman in Japan. From her Patreon:
Hi guys! As many of you know, I moved to Japan on my own at 18 to study Japanese Politics and Global Studies in one of the best universities in Kansai! I will be living in Japan from now until 2021 (possibly beyond) and I would love to share my journey with you! My content will be multidimensional, ranging from Japanese living + tips and tricks, mental health (BPD, anxiety, depression), political theories, the book I’m writing, and of course, hoeing. Get ready.
You may have noticed from a couple of past episodes that I’m rather passionate about my toilet seat attachment (aka, bidet attachment). I feel like people who’ve never tried a bidet attachment simply don’t know what it’s like to properly clean their bottoms after going. I had to find someone to be on the show to discuss this and I found Sina Yektaei from Los Angeles!
I didn’t get tonnes of feedback, but the numbers did not lie. Nevada working girl (legal prostitute) Roxanne Price’s episode was pretty popular. It was also a sort of introduction to the business of legal prostitution in the USA. I asked Roxanne back onto the show and she graciously accepted!
Veladya Chapman and her boyfriend Matt were living in a cramped apartment with his dad and their hairless cat in New York City — scraping by working multiple jobs to make the insane rents. Finally, one day they had enough and they decided to leave the apartment, buy a van and retrofit it for a cross country adventure!

Holy Hannah, how the hell did I convince Emilia Fart to let me show up at her apartment with a bunch of podcast gear, drink her soda and share a slice of Dominos Pizza with her? She’s super awesome to let me go interview her. Continue reading “Emilia Fart: A YouTube ICON affecting positive change through self expression”

Kelsey Mathew has been fascinated by the Romani people the – aka “Roma”, aka “Gypsies” (sometimes seen as derogatory) from an early age. I’m thrilled to have her on the show to tell us about some of her experiences interacting with this fascinating people in Romania during her many trips back with missions and charitable organizations! We’ll learn about the situation in the Transylvania region of Romania — its bad — and a bit about Romanian Romani culture, beliefs and practices too!
