RACISM v. COMEDY!

In this, the very first episode, our intrepid solutionauts tackle the problem of RACISM. We thought it best to start out small and slow. Let’s see how they do with this perennially thorny challenge!

All I know is, there’s only so long any social ill can withstand the healing power of laughter and comedy.

In this latest addition to our family of podcasts—you might call it a problem child—comedy duo Seth Brown and Lex Friedman want to hear all about your problems. Problems dealt with on a “funniest-come, first-served basis.” Real Debbie-downer issues like death, IRS audits, and that sink hole swallowing up your carport? The may take a lonnnnng time for us to get around to. Just leave a voice message by clicking the picture in the side bar of the girl on the party line!
