The hilarious Guy Groves returns to riff along with us for Blackuary Blackriffin, and it's an introspective and hilarious event. We discuss Guy's unfortunate resemblance to a wanted man, being pulled over by the cops, explaining racial sensitivity to children, being a father, Muhammed Ali, DUI laws, driving while high, and so much more that it's impossible to sum up this incredible episode in one paragraph. You're gonna love it, so listen and enjoy.
It's the kickoff to our 2013 season of Blackuary Blackriffin with the hilarious, energetic Quincy Jones. In his grand return to the Riffin, we start off with a bang and we don't let up in this fast-paced ruckus through white people tropes, the "n word" debacle, struggle plates, and Quincy's goal to do 1000 shows in a single year. After a brief technical issue, we tackle the news of a 23-year game of tag, musical condoms, a rude newscaster interruption and so much more. Enjoy!
This is a heated Riffin here, kids. Justin Rupple returns to regale us of his tales as an actor chef for a commercial, which somehow briefly touches on the Manti Te'o scandal, thereby leading us down a heated debate road of the media, the world, the psychology of the brain, and a number of uncomfortable moments. We round it out on happier subjects, including the discussion of the open-letter proposal for a McWorld.
Vinay Chand comes out to riff along with us when the discussions get fast and loose about Indian culture, racism, Obama, Twitter, Tumblr and a lot of social media madness. Mitcz spends the last chunk of the episode bitching about CBS, and Teddy and Vinay attempt to explain network TV to Mitcz.
We join our old friend Derrick Lemos for a semi-serious, but informative Riffin on all manner of madness. The mood in the room was one of discovery and amusement, and we riffed about robotic bees, manatees, income disparity, cancer foundations, and much more. This is a riff that'll examine your soul, without leaving you empty.
