Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 65 – In the Words of Steve King, I Don’t Have to Answer That!


Sorry for the delay and the fact that the stuff we talk about is two weeks old. Rachel, Elya, and I compare AOC with Ilhan Omar, and talk about our tax returns, that crazy black guy that threw the kid from the four story balcony of the Mall of America, and kids getting in trouble at schools for wearing MAGA shit. And, of course, we answer some questions. Man, I’m lazy.

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh, we have the song “Karma Is Coming” from the album Time Is Made of Gold, the latest album from Bedouin, one of former Hawkwind bassist Alan Davey’s many fine bands. Check it out here.

Shannon Bowman did the artwork, and the song at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles.

Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 62 – More Like WacKKKlansman if You Ask Me!


The title for this episode has a double meaning. Firstly, that the KKK is totally WACK, yo! And secondly, that Spike Lee’s latest film, BlacKkKlansman (why is the middle “k” in lowercase?), which I trash in the first 25 or so minutes, totally sucks balls, and for my money was a pretty cynical attempt at getting an academy award. I mean, why ELSE would he have a sympathetic Jewish character in his movie? He hates Jews! Or, at very least, isn’t very fond of them. And, furthermore, is he NOT aware that David Duke is no longer a fan of Donald Trump, thinking him a Zionist shill, and instead now backs Ilhan Omar, someone who Spike Lee most likely ALSO backs? I believe his REAL attitude about Jews is reflected in the Philip Seymour Hoffman character in 25th Hour.

But, I digress. In the rest of the episode, Rachel and I talk about… oh just listen to it! Elya wasn’t available this time around. In the second half, we answer listener questions, one of which is about the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sex tape.

Our featured band for Sounds of Marshabaloosh this week is legendary proto-metal, heavy prog legends URIAH FUCKIN’ HEEP!!! Not caring one wink that they’re a club act, who play in dinky ass bars like the Token Lounge, where I saw ’em last year (!!!), they have a new album called Living the Dream, which shows that legacy acts can still bring it. I play the track “Take My Soul Away.” Listen to the song and check out the nifty music video here.

The wonderful artwork, in which Rachel and Elya gawk as the KKK lynch me, was done by Shannon Bowman. The song at the end is, as usual, the Yesticles classic “The Diet Has Failed.”

Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 59 – He, She, Ze, or Pee?


Thanks to the fact that Rachel worked on movies on two consecutive Saturdays in a row, our schedule got all screwed up, forcing us to record this a couple Wednesday ago; and as is the usual Savage Hippie m.o., the stuff we talk about is once again antiquated. I mean, seriously, we’re talking about whether Trump SHOULD sign the budget proposal, which has already been signed and has now divided Trump’s base between the “God emperor Trump can do no wrong” MAGA people and the “well, he signed an amnesty deal. Bye-bye, USA!” people.

On the plus side, Rachel, Elya, and I discuss other stuff, such as how bitches be crazy and flaky, lhan Omar’s comments about AIPAC, the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez documentary on netflix, and the rogues gallery of the 2020 Democratic contenders.

We also answer listener questions from the two listeners who asked us questions. Note, we ALREADY have ANOTHER episode in the tank, and I’m hoping THAT comes out before the news cycle renders the topics we talk about obsolete.

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh, in honor of Grammy awards, who awarded High on Fire with best hard rock/heavy metal performance in spite not actually knowing what they sound like, I play “Rumors of War” from the High on Fire album Death Is This Communion from 2007.

Rachel did the art, and the song at the end is the “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles.
