• Ep 11: Roger Kahlmann – Scrotum Shaming, Comedy Workshops and the quest for a Racist Joke

    On this week’s show we mess about with the formula a bit because we have a guest with his show to promote coming up next week, Trigger Warning Tuesday, so we sit down and talk about how hard political dick jokes are to pull off, the widespread condemnation of scrotums and the time our guest asked his niece to have sex with him on stage

    Your hosts Fedor Ikelaar (NL) and Liam Moclair (UK) spend a lot of the episode holding their breath as Amsterdam’s answer to #WokeComedy, Roger Kahlmann (NL), as we have a great conversation about the differences within the Dutch and English scenes, we find out about when being Morally-Aware goes wrong and how Roger goes into every comedy show like an MMA fighter where on the lineup there is only one winner

    If you like what you hear from Roger then you can check out his new show at the Comedy Café launching this Tuesday (15/6) where he intends to push the boundaries of decency and has enlisted your host Liam to host that show in order to sprinkle some lightness on it because he is just so god-darned likeable (but still not very funny)

  • Ep. 6: Diederik Zuurmond - The Drug-Story Mothers Day Special

We speak about Ketamine dates with a young lady, which drugs to use if you’ve used too much of another drug and trips to India on Mushrooms

    If you like to hear more fun and interesting conversations about drugs and responsible drug-use, helped when the stigma around drugs is lowered, then check out the awesome team behind High Humans at https://www.highhumans.com/ for captivating articles and interviews showing you the ups and downs of drug use (Can you tell that Liam and Fedor are happy about their awesome pictures taken for the page, to be released when they get desperate and have to reach into their archives for content)
