Comedian Joann Schinderle (@joannlizabeth) joins the guys in Jake's dirty room to talk about her wonderful new life in LA, vibrant Wisconsin upbringing and awkward interactions in her relationships with men of other ehtnicities.
This week the guys have decided to record not in Jake’s sad bedroom but Shain’s haunted garage, goes into a story about a potentially racist incident involving an Oregon State Representative and looks ahead at their semi-final round on the Portland’s Funniest Person contest. Jake talks about having his family visit and an awkward moment with an audience member after a show. Shane discusses how his relationship with the police is changing with age.
The guys talk about racial labelling. Neeraj tells stories about the U.S. naturalization process. Jake talks about historic oppression of Jews, but that's not why he feels sad again. Shain's switched to PBR as he discusses the history of activism in his family.
The boys learn about each other's religious backgrounds. Neeraj talks about dealing with White folks that are way too into yoga from his journey to Colorado. Shain tells tales from going to the beach with his family and connecting with a fellow veteran. Jake explains his new adopted identity and what it's like to hang out in a sensory deprivation tank.
The guys look into the racially-charged controversy over mistreatment at a vegan bakery in Portland, and the notorious "Reparations Happy Hour" at a Portland bar. Shane updates the pod on the outraged "boycott" of his show, You're Welcome (#pizzagang), and opens up about his life at home. Neeraj tells about his trip a small-town Mongolian BBQ restaurant and shamefully admits to breaking his own rules. Jake's feeling a lot better.
DWSI? hosts its first official guest on the pod: hilarious Seattle comic, Wilfred Padua (@wilfredpadua), to discuss his experiences surrounding race and comedy. Shain breaks down the situation with a supposed boycott of his weekly stand-up showcase (#pizzagang) over a misunderstood promotional meme.
The guys go over their favorite fan mail from a Canadian solver, chop up the cringeworthy moment with a White fan at a Kendrick Lamar show and discuss the new NFL rule against protesting during the national anthem. Featuring a call w/ Portland comedy and streetball legend, Seth "The Kirkland Beast" Johnston.
Jake and Neeraj talk about their trips to the Midwest. The crew discusses if it's "hack" or racist (or both) when comedians use an ethnic accent to get laughs, and shines light on the hot new "BBQ Becky" meme while exploring the trend of White people keep calling the cops on Black people for no reason.
