Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 56 – You Don’t Have Aspergers, You’re Just an Asshole (w/ Ben Arzate)


Thanks to Rachel having to go and nearly die, this episode took a little longer to come out than expected. But once again, she and the “disgraced” Edwin Oslan are back to discuss the topics of the day, along with make jokes at the expense of minorities, women, people who are on the “spectrum”, and people of non-normative sexual orientations. They’re also joined by Ben Arzate, author of the short story collection The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Saying Goodbye and the novel The Story of the Y, which will be out soon. You can check out Ben’s blog and purchase his writings here.

Over the course of this nearly two hour abortion, we discuss Ben’s writings, why Rachel has a hyphenated last name, what’s wrong with modern psychology, Rachel’s recent near death experience, the healthcare issue, Trump’s white house fast food feast, Janeane Garofalo’s “beyond the pale” defense of Louis C.K., and some other stuff about some other shit. And, of course, we make jokes at the expense of minorities, women, people who are on the “spectrum”, and people of non-normative sexual orientations.

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh, I said, “fuck the man!” and played the totally copyrighted “Tribulation” by death/thrash metal band Possessed, because I saw them recently, and, well, “fuck the man!”

As usual, the song at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles, and Rachel did the amazing artwork.

Listen to it on youtube, as well!

Savage Hippie Podcast Episode 55 – Those Who CONTROL the Language Are the Ones Who Control the Language


Well, it’s back… sorta. The “disgraced” Edwin Oslan is joined by brand new co-host Rachel Cohen-Bourne, a liberal who doesn’t have Trump Derangement Syndrome, to discuss a variety of topics, including the recent Louis C.K.’s Parkland massacre jokes, how political correctness is killing comedy, the ever so relevant James Gunn debacle, the Trump government shutdown, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest dance video. I also very briefly talk about what REALLY happened to the previous Savage Hippie podcast, and we DO get visited by a ghost of Savage Hippie past (what do you expect? We’re roommates after all!).

Look, Savage Hippie is MY podcast. Just like Motörhead is (well, was) Lemmy’s band, Black Sabbath is Tony Iommi’s band, the Fall is (well, was) Mark E. Smith’s band, and Hawkwind is Dave Brock’s band. We’re giving you free entertainment, so if you miss the other hosts, go and listen to their shit.

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh (yes, I’m keeping the name even though Ann came up with it), we feature Disastroid. Last year, one of their members sent me the entire album to listen to and review. I never did, sorry. So, instead, we talk about ’em and play one of their songs on our show. The song is “I Didn’t Kill Myself” from their latest album, Screen. If you enjoy fuzzed out stoner rock, give ’em a listen. Some guy even called ’em the best band in San Francisco.

Sorry for the shitty art. I had to throw something together really quick.

And, as per usual, the music at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles.
