Samurai Surfer Graham Elwood (@grahamelwood) collects swords, studies martial arts and surfs. I become jealous at several points. He co-founded the @lapodfest and has a great podcast called @comedyfilmnerds. He’s hilarious and you will love this. Enjoy.

TDF 369 LIVE Premium ep at Oddblock Comedy Fest

LIVE in Winnepeg at the Oddblock Comedy Festival with Dan Telfer and John B Duff.

Dan Telfer (@dantelfer) and John B Duff (@johnbduff) both play more hardcore video games. Oh, they don’t play games any LONGER than I do, but the games they play involve talking smack to other players and they’re in open worlds. On PS4’s. Now they’re playing No Man’s Sky and Never Winter Nights. But we talk some World of Warcraft. I mention Criminal Case a bunch. It’s great. It’s live. We’re in Canada. Enjoy.

TDF 368 Martha Kelly


Law and Order SVU and Criminal Intent. Just those two. Martha Kelly (@marthakelly3 and marthakelly.net/) likes a DARK procedural. Cuz there’s backstory. Because there’s character development. Because her sister turned her onto it. But damn if she’s isn’t on board. She is wonderful. Enjoy.

Tarot Cards. There is a LOT of paranormal stuff talked about, around, at? Karen Rontowski (karenrontowski.com and @rontowski) knows things. She reads MY Tarot cards right on the show! Easy. Non satanic. Warning: hippie alert. So fun. You will like. Unless you won’t. Which is also fine. I loved it.
