91. We Just Don’t Get It



John and Coleman find themselves saying the phrases “I don’t get it” or “I don’t understand” a lot in this one.

They also discuss the Orlando Weekly voting, and encourage you to nominate/vote. Also, Happy late Mother’s Day!

During “Did Ya Hear?” is where John and Coleman’s confusion peaks.

People are crazy, and there’s just no stopping that. John and Coleman discuss a number of other things so make sure to listen, and then share, rate, and review.

86. Lost and Found of Voices & Interview with David Batten



This episode John and Coleman interview David Batten from Liberty Health Sciences during the middle portion, or the meat of the show if you will! They were also joined by Rocky from “What’s the Fuss?” podcast, and had some questions for David about being a manager of a Florida medical dispensary. They tried new things, shared laughs, and had a good ol’ time getting informed. Though some of it may seem common knowledge, people just like to pretend they know when they actually don’t.

Also Coleman lost his voice while yelling during an Orlando City Soccer match, and apparently found other voices within himself. They do “Did Ya Hear?” along with the monthly prize giveaway in the last segment. The timeline for this one jumps around and the settings of recording change, but we hope you continue to laugh with us or at us. And tip your pizza maker!


79. MLK Day, Total Eclipse, & Lesley Jo



John and Coleman have on the most recent guest from our Backyard Sessions, comedian and host Lesley Jo! Instead of raffling off a bunch of questions at her though, she just hangs out. Discussions include Coleman and John’s week, Steve Harvey two different times, Nerf dart shooting, and of course a lot more!

For the segment “Did Ya Hear?”, it was too easy to talk about the Eclipse, the Super Bowl match up, and Martin Luther King Jr Day – so that’s exactly what happened! As we get closer to multiple changes with the show, it is coincidental that Coleman has a new living situation as well. Also, how is burnt ash white on black surfaces but black on white surfaces? We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoy chatting, legalize marinara, and LAUGH WITH US OR AT US!

In “Did Ya Hear?”, Coleman shows John a video he hasn’t seen before, and it is absolutely gross! They talk for a second about the Golden Globes, as well as some iffy scientific research. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoy chatting! LAUGH WITH US OR AT US.


Backyard Sessions 10 – Simon Sez of Simon Time Trivia

Simon tells John and Rocky about his professional wrestling experience, including some nice (and not so nice) interactions regarding the sports entertainment industry. Conversations also include superb fashion and certain racial tension. The discussion was extensive and covered more than this description could do justice. It’s our longest Backyard Session yet, it was fun, and we as always learn in-depth about our very special guest, CHECK IT OUT!

67. Exotic Animals / guest Australian Rapper ‘Mugzy’



On this episode, John and Coleman talk about exotic animals – there are ones that would be cool to own, then there are ones that are underestimated, and of course ones that can fight! We also have our very first international guest, as we talk on the phone with Australian rapper ‘Mugzy’ Brady! It was awesome discussing music from where it has been to where it’s going, as well as discussing his experience making music. We even pick his brain a bit about the culture in Australia, and man can you hear it in his voice!

In segment two we interpret a music video as best as possible, and do some “Did Ya Hear?” – What is the deal with smoked watermelon and watermelon soup? We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed chatting. Stay weird and LAUGH WITH US OR AT US!

We also have a gauntlet of topics from a loyal listener (Thanks Rob)! From discussing if John can cook, to discussing which coast is the best in Florida, to straws, and to hardware stores. John and Coleman also discuss whether they prefer being funny, or being informing. – Which do you prefer, information or humor?
