Episode 45 – Now You Have to Know What Broward County is, Too

So, the election is (mostly) over, and here’s the takes: The House is blue. The Senate is red. The country is still f*cked.  Nevada has fully embraced centrist Democrats and it beats the alternative.  Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) is going to be a Senator and all she had to do was take horrible positions on every issue.  Florida voters bloc decided …

Episode 43 – The Purple State Ballot Amendment Throwdown – WTF is this Sh*t, Florida Edition feat. Billy Corben

Florida has the most ballot items of any state this year. To help us pick apart the implications, we continued our earlier conversation with rakontur’s Billy Corben (Cocaine Cowboys, The U, Broke, Square Grouper) about which of these amendments pass muster. Vote “NO” on Amendment 1. (3:33) Vote “YES” on Amendment 2. (8:39) Vote “NO” on Amendment 3. (12:43) Vote …

We’re joined by the Miami Herald’s Alex Harris, who reports on climate change. She talks with us about a recent private wealth management report that suggests, wait for it… Miami might be endangered by climate change! Crazy, right? You can follow her @harrisalexc and read her reporting here: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/environment/ Check her story on the Singer report here: https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/environment/article219359460.html The UN’s …

Episode 40 – Season Two!

Them Bird Boys are back after taking September off and boy does Jewish Dave have a lot of ideas for skits. We get back into the news of the day which involves the Supreme Courts and other fun things. We tell bad jokes. I literally just got done editing this episode and already can’t remember what we talked about in …

Episode 39 – The Florida Primaries and Andrew Gillum: We TOLD Y’all

Florida primaries. Toxic algae blooms. Daphne Campbell is awesome in her own way. John Cardillo probably got called “John Car-Dildo” a lot growing up. We’ve got all your critical election coverage and after listening to this show you’ll never need to know anything else, about anything, ever. Jewish Dave’s computer is a nightmare Rube Goldberg machine of outdated apps and …

Episode 35 – Dave Didn’t Want to Do This One

Just the original Bird Boys this episode, drinking bird-tainted Bird Water. Q began this episode defending the LGBTQ community from the New York Times’ weird homophobic animations, and this immediately enraged Jewish Dave, who was standoffish and mean-spirited for the entire show. We soldiered on, backs against the wind, and discussed the #SurrenderSummit or whatever they’re trying to call it. …

Episode 34 – The Big Payback feat. David Faris

Yo yo yo catch us at our booth at OzyFest this summer where we’ll be promoting Bird Water, water that has been soaked in birds, and see Jewish Dave during his breakout session, “How GG Alin Would Have Hearted Animojis” and “Democracy and dRUMPF: A Crisis in Civility.” In this episode, we talk to Roosevelt University professor David Faris, author …

Episode 31 – The No Good, Very Bad Week

Man, we only covered like half the awful things that have happened this week and we’re still exhausted. Jewish Dave gives us a dispatch from the wildly disappointing Nevada Democratic Primary where everyone ignored a field of qualified, compelling progressives and instead voted for crates of remaindered Al Franken books. The bright spot: we talked to Ryan Lindsey, a progressive …

Episode 29 – Jewish Dave Hot Take: Chance The Rapper is Bad

It’s been a minute, yeah, sure, but we’ve been busy so back off. Here’s your new episode.  We talk about why the 1,500 missing migrant kids-situation is not what it seems (spoiler alert: it’s way worse) and then we follow up on Do I Have To — Jewish Dave doesn’t like Chance the Rapper because he hates joy and things …

Episode 28 – Avengers: Infinity Wolf

Can’t you see? She killed them. She killed them all, Dave. This week we catch up with friend of the pod Michael Weiss as he chili cook-offs (cooks-off?) his way to victory in his Nevada congressional bid. Meanwhile, we have new Do I Have To assignments for each other, and we talk about other things as well including bad traffic …

Episode 27 – The Zuck Mixtape w/ Carty Bees

The pee tape is real the pee tape is real the pee tape is real the pee Q and Jewish Dave talk about Three Billboards Outside Ebbings, Missouri (2017) and Relatos Salvaje (2012) during Do I Have To. I never have enough energy to write great descriptions by the time I’m done editing. Just listen to this week’s episode if …

Episode 24 – Betsy DeVos, Donna Shalala and the Bae-Team feat. Jerry Iannelli

Betsy DeVos got somethin’ going on… It’s a mostly South Florida-centric episode as we talk with Miami New Times reporter Jerry Iannelli (@JerryIannelli) about the inevitability of Rep. Donna Shalala (D-Fla.) and the charred husks of scattered Dems she’s going to leave in her gilded wake. Also, never forget that all the water is poison, which means all the food …

SPECIAL – Piecing It Together, Episode 1

We got a new show, made special for all those Jewish Dave fans out there. Check out the new All Points West show, from half of the team that brings you Bird Road, on an exploration of movies that promises to bring film into focus (get it?).
