From deep within the bowels of society, another urban legend is excreted. A legend so foul, so nasty...so real? I have my opinions. Born of a deep-seated need by my shadowy friend Steve Cominski to seek and uncover the truth, he bequeathed upon me this unholy quest to get to the bottom of a fabled relic, rivaled only by the Holy Grail in its true historical significance.  Welcome to the edge...

Now that Misery Point Radio (My new, second podcast) has taken of the reigns of being the hub for artists and entertainers, On The Edge will officially focus on all things topical, with a focus on the comedy of the human condition. Rants, raves, crazy things in society, strange stories, and a whole lot of talkin' smack!

This episode, inspired by the horribly bad job applicants I've seen over the years, is a bitter yet comedic look at where we are as society in regards to job seekers and real-world exectations. Sure to offend the thin skinned, and probably surprise those with old-school notions of what is actually wrong information, here is my observational take on what some companies actually think of the behavioral toilet that is today's job market.

Sorry not sorry.

I'm joined by Chris Adkins, who plays in the trifecta of awesomeness consisting of Acoustic project The Royal Pain, melodic punk outfit Phasers On Kill, and the legendary hometown and international heroes MxPx. Co-hosted by my studio wizard friend Bradly Miranda, we have an awesome hangout session and discuss how Chris manages to juggle all three acts and maintain his sanity. We also get an epic solo acoustic performance which features an amazing Descendants cover as well as two other killer cuts, one of which features Brad on the nut crusher (cajon) and Brad's brother Brian on bass. There is also video that will be coming real soon!

This episode also will be fetured on the newly launched Misery Point Radio in a few weeks!

Aussie podcaster David Chaffey discusses his extreme comedy podcast Man Brain, and we attempt to identify the fine line between what is comedy and what is just plain hatespeech. We also dissect the challenge presented with creating offensive characters and still being able maintain a (somehwhat) (Normal?) identify that is completely different than the characters that one creates.

An insightful and deeply personal look into the psyche of an extreme comic and the surprisingly down-to- earth individual who atempts to put an absurd world on blast while coping with some pretty heavy challenges.

The research into the last episode of the now infamos Horizon Air theft and subsequent crash on Ketron Island led me down another path that resulted into me wanting to tell the story of another famous island in Washington State: McNeil Island. Located in very close proximity to Ketron Island, McNeil was once a federal penitentiary that housed Mafia era gangsters, an infamous ornithologist, a presidential candidate, and a future cult leader! After relinquishing federal control of the island to Washington State, it finally ceased to be a prison and subject of the department of corrections, and now houses a highly controverial "rehabilitation" center for the states highest level sex offenders. Faced with lawsuits, maintenence challenges, and an astronimical budgetary requirement, we ae faced with several qustions. Do we continue to allocate resources to it? Do we open a new facility in a more budget friendly, mainland location? Do we cease the entire program alltogether and release the most abhorrent of offenders back into the population? And is the Now-DSHS run program operating according to its mandate and actually running a successful program, or is it violating  basic human rights laws, misapropriating funds, and "warehousing" residents as opposed to working toward actual solutions. You be the judge!

On August 11, 2018 one person single-handedly stole a 76 seat commercial airliner and flew it on a 75 minute joy-ride aound the South Puget Sound before finally crashing it into a nearby island and killing himself. This calls into question many different things, namely how a glaring security oversight will undoubtedly have worldwide implications for air travel and safety. Additionally, we are faced with many questions about mental illness and how unprepared we sometimes are to identify triggers and act in a timely and effective manner before something tragic happens.

PS- Any instance where I may have referred to Anderson Island, I meant to refer to McNeil Island. OOPS lol. Anderson Island is awesome! McNeil is not lol.

I'm back from my brief hiatus, so thanks for hanging in there! Back in October of 2017, a once "boys only" club  announced they would begin allowing girls to enroll in a limited capacity, much to the dismay of a large portion of the population. I attempt to remain objective while examining both sides of the controversy and attempting to answer this question: should we as a society continue to allow the existence of exclusive groups, or do we need to include everyone in everything in order to maintain a state of politcally correct equality? Sure to ruffle a few feathers with this one!

One more step back in time to celebrate the guests who came on for the first year! Also a shout out to Spoiler Country, The Not So Crazy Podcast Of Blizzard The Wizard And Eli, and Baked And Awake for providing some awesome Clips for the episode. Thanks again to everyone for supporting the show for the last year! Currently working on some new content, so back to normal here pretty soon. Whatever normal means lol.

Awesome announcement at the end of the episode...

So back in May The show hit its one year anniversary! The year definitely went way too fast! Over the course of the last month I've been busy planning and reworking some things, and have been quite busy. I really dug into where the show started and where it's gone in an attempt to really analyze what I should be doing. During this process, I got the idea that I should do a retrospective, sort of a "best of" while I work on new material and plan for the future of the show. So while I'm taking a little time off, I hope you enjoy looking back on the last year with me. This will be two parts, with this portion focusing on the rants and such, while the second part (coming soon) will focus on the guests. These are a little long (That's what she said), so take your motion sickness pills and get ready!

And a sincere thanks to all who have hung out through this entire journey!

Disclaimer: I am not an expert in anything legal.

We have some pretty stupid and funny laws in this country.

We have things that aren't illegal but should be. 

And we just made some things illegal that I thought were already illegal.

And we have stupid people who do stupid things that lead others to react in stupid ways.

But nobuddy are stoopider then mee.

It's the law, Son!
