Kenn invites Gobbledygeeks Arlo Wiley & Paul Smith as well as A/V director Joseph William Lewis onto the show to discuss the best and worst things that made up the year 2016, both in a personal sense, and more globally.
Kenn Edwards (@TheKennEdwards) finds enough time between Last Week Tonight seasons to convince excellent-comedian-slash-human-being Josh Gondelman (@joshgondelman) to talk to him about his Boston origins, how one prepares for a pivotal career event, the process of shaping Last Week Tonight segments, his reaction to the election outcome, and much more. Check out his latest comedy album Physical Whisper and see him on tour!
Following a format established in the 2012 SLGTTP Election episode, Kenn Edwards welcomes special guests "Weird Al" Yankovic and Adam Conover to the show, and after arguing about issues via Facebook for the past year, Kenn finally sits down with his father-in-law Don Brady for a face-to-face discussion about how this election looks from each the opposing sides.
Kenn finally invites Wesley Mead to SLGTTP from across the pond to discuss all things that have evolved since our revolutionary struggle from enemies to allies, and these two knuckleheads are your nations' only representatives present for today's discussion. So, good luck! Topics include Brexit, the 2016 Presidential race, the general assumptions and possibly prejudices we place on one another based solely on the identity of our homelands, and quite a bit about our respective exposure to comedy. Tip top cheerio, old chaps! And all that other somehow-not-racist-because-we-are-all-still-mostly-white British slang I'm supposed to say! Cunts!
In what is intended to be the first of many podcasts featuring fun conversations with Richmond-based comedians, Patrick Miller joins Kenn to bond over one of their central passions: GREEN DAY. Not long into the episode, Patrick ambushes Kenn live on mic with a pitch for a future project. Will Kenn take the bait? Listen to find out! Also, Kenn prods Patrick to discuss the difficulties of labels and sexual identity that still exist within what we think of as a progressive world in an effort to further understand modern sexuality and what the public tends to think of and define as bisexual. It's a great candid talk, that may lead to something great! Enjoy!

Kenn invites Paul Smith (famed podcaster of Gobbledygeek, The Avatar Returns, and The Podcast Where It Happens and co-author of The Deli Counter of Justice) back to SLGTTP to address their public (lack of) beef established on TPWIH. When the (nonexistent) dust clears, they discuss their mutual love of Hamilton, contrast the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters with the original and the evolution of "comedy" as a genre, social media "outrage," the hyperbole of praising acting abilities, the effects of watching Jurassic World on LSD, the magic of witnessing others' fascination with Pokemon Go, and the engagement story of Paul Smith, Master of Love.

Topics include their recent trip to Washington DC to see John Carpenter perform, the awkwardness of sharing exciting stories with friends/family, Mr. Robot (spoilers!), Ghostbusters, and more!

Kenn Edwards discusses Game of Thrones Season 6, last week's episode "The Battle of the Bastards," Finding Dory, and the tragic death of actor Anton Yelchin with show favorite Joseph William Lewis. Spoiler Alert for all of those things. They're drunk, they're tired, and they didn't know they were even recording. Things get silly, controversial, and mostly stupid!

Kenn Edwards invites Greg Sahadachny of The Debatable Podcast and All The Pieces Matter back to SLGTTP to catch up with one another and discuss their experience at the live Comedy Bang! Bang! show in Washington DC, Kenn's first standup show opening for an established comedian (Brooks Wheelan), the current state of Trump America, and combating the difficulty of separation between the virtual world and the real world we live in, and a variety of other topics though all the ins and outs that connect everything else. It's a delightful conversation with two podcast hosts who love sharing airtime. Follow @TheKennEdwards & @mistergreggles.
In an effort to humble himself after two back-to-back "big deal" episodes, host Kenn Edwards invites coworkers Eddie Deleon, Austin Wright, and Wesley Gross to the podcast to talk about and share stories of their jobs delivering/working at New Brothers Pizza in Fishersville, VA.

In a new series of infrequent experimental podcast episodes, Kenn talks to other comedians at his home, but they must remain standing up the whole time, in an effort to generate the same kind of energy they get presenting ideas on stage. This week's guests are veteran SLGTTPers, Winston Hodges and Paige Campbell. They explore a variety of subjects, including the longest stint talking about sports ever experienced on the likes of this podcast - and in a more relatable way than any non-sports nerd has ever heard - as well as track the current frustrations and lessons Kenn has been experiencing at this particular time, hitting his own wall, 3-years into his own comedy career. High energy, fun, and thoughtful. Enjoy!
Kenn Edwards and Rosy & Tom Wagoner return to discuss a plethora of divisive topics (Reality TV, American entitlement, 2016's political climate, PC culture/changing language, dealing with friends/family gun-rights supporters, vaporizing & even conspiracies), BUT in the most light-hearted and fun way possible, as well dip into their current life setting working menial jobs in pizza in their ongoing strive for unshackled artistic freedom.
Remember: all opinions featured within were only those of the moment, so please only find @TheKennEdwards, @Breasticules, & @TWagzSr on Twitter to love and follow us, not to yell at us.

In a return-to-form of sorts, Kenn records with regular/cohosts Rosy & Tom Wagoner about whatever happens to come up, classic SLGTTP-style. We end up chatting a lot about Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Spoilers!!), a lot about feminism, and how the two are related. Plus other fun general discussion. Follow @TheKennEdwards, @Breasticules, & @TWagzSr.
Kenn Edwards invites AJ Wiley (of podcasts Gobbledygeek/The Avatar Returns) and director Joseph William Lewis (Nowheresville, upcoming motion picture A/V) back on the show for the final episode of 2015, bringing the trio together for the first time on record since the final episode of their former project, Smoke Gets In Your Ears: A Mad Men Podcast. This episode gets deep as the gang dive deep into the inherent frustrations and subsequent psychosis brought on by the life of the hungry artist in the modern era, habitual practices and lack thereof, dealing with society politically in the current social climate, and much more. It's a good one! Strap in, enjoy! Follow @TheKennEdwards, @ToastedSchizo, & @UnpluggedCrazy.
Kenn Edwards and Vincent Ottobre of Project Batman get together to discuss their initial reactions to the long-awaited Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens! Follow @TheKennEdwards.
Kenn Edwards invites Project Batman co-creator Vincent Ottobre back on the show to geek out and revel in their utter excitement of the imminent release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens! Fears, expectations, anticipations, proclamations, hypotheticalization, interstellar planetary invasion, and guaranteed brain stimulation, all in one entertaining conversation! But this isn't the end! This is only the prequel, to the actual episode that we're all looking forward to being able to have: in just a day or so, the duo returns to discuss their thoughts, feelings, and general reactions to the most anticipated movie of perhaps their entire lives. Until then, enjoy this episode! The Force is strong with this one.

Kenn Edwards gathers comedians Winston Hodges, TJ Ferguson, Paige Campbell, and Tom Wagoner for a discussion intended to focus on the ethics of "covering" other comedians' material that quickly branches into an array of various topics, from the meanings and differences in personal belief structures to other more common subjects like relationships and TV shows. Five comedians in a room will never not make for an extremely satisfying two hours. Dig in, friends.
