    This'll be great! The two of them alone and unmediated will probably be even more crazy and unpredictable.
  • Does Rogan address Redban not being there in the Eddie Bravo podcast? I'm 19 mins in and they haven't mentioned anything.
  • @khan Booo yah!! Gold. One-on-one.

    They were definitely talking about different things.

  • @cantorset Now they can go down that rabbit hole. Past the point of no return.

    By the time they've re-emerged we'll have heard something special.

    DONE

    @redban THX for producing the #deathsquad podcasts, putting up with our beloved @duncantrussell & being a generous dude. #DTFH



    So did he tweet this just today? You said he promptly deleted it. If so I'm sure him not being on the JRE tonight and Joe announcing he will be doing more of these one on one casts has something to do with it. It would have to. Aww, poor Redban. As much as I have always wished there would be more JRE casts without him, at least on the more serious one, I hope he reflects and grows instead just getting angry and bitter. He has gotten on my nerves so many times, but I can't help still having a soft spot for the dude. Probably how Joe feels.

    Was anyone here listening to the Howard Stern Show about 4 years ago?

    I remember it was about this time in 2008 when Artie was at the apex of his meltdown. He was fighting with everyone, calling names, and actually getting violent. His stress levels were through the roof, he wasn't taking care of himself, and he didn't want to deal with anything anymore.

    I wondered back then if it was all a publicity stunt, and as time went on it became apparent that there were some serious issues that needed to be dealt with. I've been wondering recently if all of redban's antics have been just to try and stir the pot and get people all riled, but I'm really starting to think that he's going to have an Artie sized meltdown sooner than later if he doesn't deal with what's really bothering him.

    I love Artie, and I love redban.
  • Next JRE podcast is going to be the best podcast of the century
  • Has Joe finally realized how easy it is to do a podcast after you buy the equipment? His revelation about doing more alone is exciting. Bye Brian, wish I could say it's been fun.

    wow. i was, and you're right. there are striking similarities there.

    btw, artie has a podcast and is on twitter, if you can believe that. i hope redban gets into a better place. he's a fun addition to the JRE when the level is right.

  • well the levels sucked without him, so Joe obviously needs someone to work the ones and twos.

    also, Redban, cool it with the drops mane. DJ Doug Pound is a virtuoso with the sounds and even his get annoying sometimes.

    oh, shit...

    sorry Dustin, if you were present.
    I can understand how you might be reluctant to tell Duncan to 'talk into the tape' on your first (or second?) day on the job.

    I agree.

    I hope there is harmony throughout the 6 Degrees of Joe Rogan community (Deathsquad, Joey Diaz, DTFH, Ari, etc.). I think that is what Joe is trying to accomplish. I really hope Redban doesn't take it as a attack on his ego, the guy just needs some assistance so he can be at his best. I would have hissy fits too if I was overworked.

    I like Redban being the goofy, silly, "Oh Brian" kind of guy that I grew to like, hopefully this move gets him back in that groove.

    It's possible this may be the assistant they were talking about needing to hire with Ari. I think that JRE is probably changing, in that Redban won't be a regular fixture any longer, but to play devils advocate, they were talking about getting him an assistant so that may be the case. I doubt it, but could be.

    Hadn't been following this thread, but it's really fucking cool to see that the way many of you are reacting to this situation is not to attack Redban, but to send him sweet tweets.

    That's true novelty and it's really inspiring especially when you look at it from the point of view of the Bhagavad Gita which says

    "You have a right to your actions you do not have a right to the fruits of your actions" Which means that you act in a compassionate way without any thought of the results of your action. Because acting compassionately out of the desire to create a specific result is just a form of manipulation.

    So great work, family! This thread made my day.

    I'm curious to the version you found. The version I'm familiar with involves a group of hockey players in a race to jizz on a cookie, with the loser having to eat the cookie.

    I played a lot of sports growing up and I have to believe this is more of an urban myth than anything. I'd heard of it called "ookie cookie" or "soggy donut". I'd imagine that any person who would actually play that game, wouldn't really hate to eat the pastry.

    Am I Ambivalent? Well, yes and no.
  • Respect to you @duncan for the way you spoke to Joe on JRE about this issue. You're right that this is an evolving community of podcasts, and nothing can be build upon an inbalanced basis.
    You were humble in admitting that you can't speak out against war without making peace with those directly around you.

    You were also very, very right about this - eggs were broken, so we may as well make omelets.

    Much love to Duncan but guy needs to learn when to drop it. Heard him bitching about podcasters not paying ppl again with Eddie pepitone. Here's the deal. This kind of stuff happens in all entertainment venues. Bands need to play shows for exposure. Djs release free mix tapes. The examples go on and on. Here's what you do if you don't like it. Produce your own show. Or be a man and talk about it. But after you talk about it, you can't keep bringing it up. That's bitch behavior. Again I love duncans podcast right down to the strangely hilarious t shirt adverts but take it from me, a guy who has released hundreds of songs for free in the name of getting publicity for myself (www.youtube.com/donimusic shameless plug) I'm sure that this kind of stuff goes on all the time. If Duncan was really sorry, he would drop it and be the bigger person. Clearly he still has issues and obviously redban listens to his podcast... So just drop it. It's starting to look pathetic. Did joe rogan pay you to come on his podcast? Even if he did, the promotion you get from being on that show is huge. Comon dude be a person
  • Doni

    For the trolls I realize Duncan has his own show, my point is that ppl have options. They shouldn't feel ripped off for not getting paid for a 10 minute set on a show that gives then freaking HUGE promotion and powerful connections.
  • KHAN

    @Doni this is shades of RSS. Joe doesn't pay Duncan to be on JRE because JRE dosen't sell tickets, its a free show.

    The Ice House now pays all comics $20-60 whereas before only some people got paid. That's a fucking good thing if you're a struggling comedian in CA.

    sometimes its good to just shuttp and not complain, sometimes being a bitch is what gets shit done. #ows #marriage
