How’s everyone liking us talking to a comedian on Patreon podcasts? I’m loving it. Can I say that or is it immodest? You know what, I don’t think immodest is bad, because I don’t know what immodest even means, so there! This week we welcomed, Billy Hurley, a NYC-based comedian. Wow, such credits! I kid, Billy’s awesome. Here’s how I know Billy:  He was a fan of Razzball and I randomly followed him on Twitter and he made me laugh a lot, so now we’re like BFFs. Not really, but don’t tell him. Here’s a sample of a Billy Hurley tweet:

Haha, no, you stop it! Anyway, seriously, intro-to-this-sentence, I really do love Billy and he’s a good laugh. On today’s show we discuss everything that’s in the news…that you’re not hearing about! Ooh, intrigue! A sample of topics we cover is NYC guidelines for sex now include a wall between people; a Thai man who stole 126 flip-flops because he finds them erotic; a mermaid town that went out of business and this absolute journey of a headline:

 

We unpack all of that and more! Anyway, subscribe to our Patreon podcast (it’s $5 for the month!) to hear the show, and help support Razzball or buy an ad-free membership.

    Awesome pod!

    a. I love Nacho, this hurts. Hopefully he won’t be locked up for too long.

    b. When I was younger (in the 90s), I used to listen to this rapper called Jamalski (‘member that album, Roughneck Reality?). It was his only album. I was like why? He could have easily just wash rinse repeat for another 20 years but I guess not. He got the rapper’s version of valley fever. So my question to all y’all. What is the rapper’s version of valley fever?

    c. MLB quote of the day for June 15, 1924

    ‘They used to say, ‘If we find a good black player, we’ll sign him.’ They was lying.’

    James Thomas ‘Cool Papa’ Bell, the stories about his speed were legendary. Like Satchel Paige’s quote about how he would be in bed before the lights went out and how Bell hit a screaming liner passed Paige’s ear and got hit sliding into 2nd base. Bell also recounts how he stole 5 bases one game but wasn’t credited because the scorekeepers didn’t bring their score book. They had a bad day, what could they say!

    He was fast, he would score from first on a base hit. He would regularly steal 2nd and 3rd on the same pitch (don’t know why the catcher didn’t just straight throw to third?). He started his career as a knuckleball pitcher on Sundays!

    Cheers,
    Ante

      A. Haha, Nacho Vidal is the man! Hopefully he’s locked up less time than baseball is locked out

      B. Hmm…Not an easy question…I’m gonna go Live at the BBQ by Main Source, bc you’re at a BBQ and you get valley fever

      C. Very timely quote…People are worried now about where they place the center field camera so you can see accurate break on a pitch and they used to forget to keep score back in the day

        a. Is today a holiday? The anti-baseball holiday? Holy crap, it’s you and I. Never thought it would happen! J/k, I’m sure the rest of the gang will show up soon enough.

        b. ‘Member when you only used to enter the room when the comments were at a minimum of 500+? Man, those were the days. Hopefully, baseball gets back really soon.

        c. What did you think of ‘The Fall’ with Gillian Anderson?

          A. It’s June too…It’s so crazy…Hopefully baseball will return soon

          B. Yeah, see what I said on A

          C. I loved it — I have a new show for you actually…What We Do in the Shadows? It’s so funny

            Grey!!

            June, right. End of the school year for some. I bet many families just took off somewhere, anywhere just to get away from the monotony.

            Thanks for the tip. Looks good but I know my wife wouldn’t like it. I told you what happened with Dark Season 2, right? We watched season 1, it was great. There was a huge cliffhanger at the end of season 1. So I find, lock and load for season 2. Queue it…and I don’t like this show! What? But we watched season 1! Yeah but I just went through the motions to finish it once I started it. Sometimes you really don’t know the person you live with.

            Cheers,

              Nah, I think your wife might like it — it’s hilarious — please try it with her, tell her someone she doesn’t know insists

              I loved Dark, did watch both seasons, but I honestly don’t know if I understood 50% of it…Your wife and my wife sound similar…We watch something, both agree we like it, but then she doesn’t want to watch 2nd season or worse even finish 1st season

            C. Glad you took the rec, and you agree! If you haven’t seen the movie, you might as well watch that too. I mean, it’s Jemaine Clement, can’t really go wrong.

              I’m blown away by how funny the TV show is, I kinda like it better than The Office, but obviously more Aristides Aquino vs. Trout — in that it’s a smaller sample… will definitely watch the movie too…

                Like you and Ante’s wife, I don’t keep up with shows for multiple seasons. So I never watched the Office in its entirety. I think I was current with the first 2 or 3 seasons, then watched sporadically. Either way, I like WWD better.
