#403: Self-Criticism is Great and So is Comprimise

Good evening, ladies and gentleman! Welcome back to my weekly blow-hard fest! And tonight, the wind blows so hard about:

  • Why being hard on yourself in a focused way is the best thing for you
  • Why single people who get pregnant on purpose are insane
  • What my beloved Philadelphia Eagles taught me in the best seasons we’ve ever had (NEXT MAN UP!)
  • Weekly confessional story from past-douche Jordan
  • We go a little long tonight as I wrap up the show going on a lengthy rant about compromise, essentially giving you an extended preview for my political show, “Calm the F–k Down with Alex and Jordan.”

Enjoy! email me!

#395: Gratitude

Hello! Thanksgiving is upon upon us and so is the birth of my son (13 days and counting). Tonight, I wax poetic about:

  • How to handle the dysfunctional moon bat in your Thanksgiving family dinner (if you can’t spot it, it’s you)
  • Tips for Dads from the excellent, “Dudes to Dads,” podcast
  • Update on Chloe and her fight against cancer
  • What to do if you realize that you are a rebound for someone
  • Advice on using active gratitude to better you life


#394: When Should I Not Apologize?

Tonight, I wax poetic about:

  • Chloe’s current status in her fight against cancer
  • Why Social Media sucking out our life force is a major theme in my upcoming book’s sequel
  • Why judging all members of a race/gender/??? is counterproductive and stupid
  • How the, “Friend Zone,” can be anti-woman, but not always
  • Why I regret much but might not apologize depending on the situation
  • And more!

#393: The Rollercoaster of Life Goes On


ChloeTonight’s a wacky one; be warned, I bounce around tone-wise.

I begin with the sad news that my cat Chloe has cancer, then give further thoughts on Hurricane Harvey, Kevin, and Louis CK. After that, I switch gears and talk about the 70’s baby book , “Where did I come from?” and then attack morons who think they are entitled to getting autographs from underage celebrities.

As my son comes into this world, my cat prepares to go out. Needless to say, it’s been a rough couple of weeks.

#391: How to Avoid Annoying People at Bars, I spend the first 15 minutes explaining how to get rid of annoying people who mistake your polite smile for life-long friendship. Then, I ramble a bit about the end of an era. After that, I answer some wacky Quora questions. I also have some fun with people who look like the tattoo monster puked all over them. Enjoy!

#390: If It Hurts You, I Don’t Want It

Good evening! Tonight, I ramble from a boys trip in Sin City (last one before I hunker down with the SNGal and commence, “Operation Nesting,” for the arrival of our son) of how you should actually hope for difficulty in life, in relationships, and in life. Enjoy!

#389: Harvey Weinstein and Absolute Power
He’s not sorry for what he’s done. He’s sorry because he got caught. You can’t turn a cake into a pizza.

Good evening! Tonight, I wax poetic about:

  • Dating advice about how you should leave your ex’s alone unless you know exactly what you want from them
  • Why we lose interest in people
  • Quick thoughts on, “Blade Runner 2049.”
  • And most of all, Harvey f—king Weinstein, his crew of enablers, and what it means to be truly brave


#388: The Grand Canyon, Patience and Humility

North Rim, Grand Canyon, AZ
North Rim, Grand Canyon, AZ






Good evening! I’m back, and tonight, I discuss (among other things) why everyone needs to not just go to the Grand Canyon some day, but hike rim to rim at least once in their lives. It doesn’t cure all of your emotional ills, but it certainly does do damage to the demons in your heart. Enjoy!

Envy and Infatuation

HELLO! I’m back. Tonight, I discuss:

  • How Envy drives a relationship, and life, into the ground
  • The difference between niceness and kindness
  • The difference between love and infatuation
  • I like answering questions on Quora now
  • Seeing, “The Muppets Take the Bowl.”

#385: Finally…

I’m not there yet, but I got closer last weekend.

I also wax poetic about class warfare in the Kingsman movie, why you shouldn’t settle (again), the sex-addiction drama, “Shame,” and fears I’m having as a parent-to-be. Enjoy!

#383: A Single Person’s Proper Mentality

Tonight, I’m going deep on my failures of being a raging coward. Granted, I am completely ignoring the times that I was Sade’s Sweetest Taboo, but such is the life of someone still struggling with self-loathing. At least you might get something out of it.


Life happens, and the last 3rd (or so) is about the recent Joss Whedon cluster-f from his ex-wife. I have a more nuanced position the most, at least I’d like to think so.


#378: 13 Reasons Why, Part 2

Good evening, what’s going on? Tonight, I wax my board about

  • Further thoughts on Netflix’s, “13 Reasons Why.” I finished the show and read the book as well.
  • Slate’s article criticizing the show. I agree with some of it. I think.
  • Regrets I’m still having about the past and how the show triggered some things. Yes. Triggered.
  • Re-watching, “True Blood.”

#376: Tell Them Why You Dumped Them

Good evening! Tonight, I wax poetic about:

  • Why it’s a good idea to ask someone why they dumped you
  • Why I am now 40 but feel 32
  • Review of the second season of, “Master of None.”
  • Why, “Bambi,” is the best movie about how to be a man
  • And more!

#374: Everything is Your Fault

Good evening and happy HUMP day everyone! Tonight, I rant about turning 40 (next week) and becoming a Dad this December (a real one, sorry Chloe), as well as the wonderful, “F is for Family,” and a few dating stories that make my skin crawl (but everything was my fault). Enjoy!

#368: New Nerd Podcast with my Friend Alex

As with the other one I’m doing on politics, once a month, my friend Alex and I will blow hard, this time about science fiction, fantasy, and all around nerd stuff. Enjoy!

NOTE: Recorded live at Almaza, hence the background noise.
