Love: Lewis Black
For this episode’s Love, Alex takes everyone into the history and work of comedian, author, and actor Lewis Black. He relays Black’s surprisingly full life as a Yale-graduate and successful working playwright and actor before his breakthrough as a stand-up at age 50, his equally surprising turns as a writer and essayist, and just what he meant to a young, pre-anger future podcast host looking for bits to recite on a playground. Andy, meanwhile, is charmed by a story about an essay on golf, and reveals to everyone how he’s never watched The Daily Show despite being a millennial.
Hate: Celebrity Abusers
Andy takes his Hate to get into the wide and varied and infinitely sad world of Celebrities using their influence and power to abuse people and keep right on working. He touches on examples ranging from child porn loving anime writers to comics who just barely missed out on successful comebacks to convicted and admitted sex offenders still working on Disney Channel shows. Alex joins in to list the various sins of just so many artists and actors and musicians, and asks us all to think about where we draw our lines (looking at you, Fassbender).
Relationship: Saul Silver
For this episode’s Relationships.txt question, our asker inquires if she should say something to her friend who is having his barely legal f*ck buddy move in with him rent free in exchange for sexual favors. Andy reflects on the grossness of an age difference, Alex spends some time talking about power dynamics, and everyone agrees that no one can be described as “giddy” when discussing “trying out” BDSM for the first time has any business doing anything of the kind until they learn a whole lot more about communication.
