TPPP Episode 131 : Pee in a Bottle
Another episode of The Triple Po is upon us, so rejoice oh listeners and watchers! This week Lyman was late again, but not as late as usual, and also we had friend of the show and the beer god himself, Zach from Zachrilege Cast. I tried to put a little structure into the show, and I will try to to do so going forward, because at least it’s a little more bearable when you hear the privileged ramblings of some White dudes. First we talk about the Boulder shootings, and that insufferable gun nut Lauren Boebert’s ‘thoughts and prayers’ bullshit in response, as well as the ensuing mockery and disbelief among sane folks who are probably not surprised, yet still constantly disgusted by her inane ramblings. Next we speak about the Amazon employees’ upcoming unionization vote, and the kind of lengths Amazon will go in order that it not happen. We also talk about Amazon’s horrid working conditions and relatively low pay for the area, which of course is the reason they are trying to unionize in the first place! Last, but certainly not least, is the passage in my glorious state of Tennessee of the anti-trans athlete bill, which would require athletes to compete with the gender that is on their birth certificate. Of course this is only a spate of bills that the state legislatures controlled by the GOP are trying to pass. They say it’s for the children, but we know it’s just yet another hate bill against the LGBT community. Tough topics to be sure, but we still try to engage the stories with what humor we can. Thanks y’all for tuning in.

TPPP Episode 130 : Keith the Crazy Canuck
Welcome fans to another episode of The Triple Po! I just today realized that I hadn't released the podcast version of the show, and for that I give most humble apologies. Things slip my pickled mind on occasion. We had the pleasure of talking to Keith Spielman, aka Buddy the Lumberjack from Cellar Door Skeptics. We talk about renewing our acquaintance of around two years. We also talked about his work with Cellar Door Skeptics as the resident Canadian and general ne'er-do-well. Of course, we also had to talk about Canadian stuff, including how conservative his province of Alberta is, the accent, and whatever the fuck a toque is. It's a longer than usual show, clocking in at two hours, but we covered a lot of ground on various and sundry topics. Enjoy!

TPPP Episode 129 : Fearsome Foursome
It's a foursome this episode, with Lyman and myself joined by the ever awesome Zach from Zachrilege Cast and friend Daniel Criss, sometime podcaster and owner of the sexiest voice in podcasting. We talk about David Silverman getting his ass handed to him by The Friendly Atheist, aka Hemant Mehta; the doing at CPAC, including a golden Trump idol; Daniel and his brother talk about the podcast they are planning about survival skills and depression; and much more. The audio is a little iffy at points, but I think y'all will still enjoy it.

TPPP Episode 122 : VP Blues
It's been a while, hasn't it? Well, I thought I would do a new episode at my fancier digs. It feels homier than the other place. The other place was a just a bit too run-down for me. I have tastes for the finer things. Anyway, Lyman wasn't able to join me this time, so I was left unsupervised. The main subject though is that of Biden picking Kamala Harris as his Vice Presidential running mate. I am not happy about it! But if you want to hear my full ramble about it, listen to the show! It's me grumbling for an hour about it. I am going to share a link to an article though that helped me center my thinking regarding her record. Enjoy!

Writer, activist, and Antifa Board Member Dan Arel comes back on the show to talk about the second edition of his book 'Parenting Without God'.

TPPP Episode 120 : Down in Dixieland
This incarnation of The Triple Po has us talking to the gentleman from Dixieland of the Proletariat Podcast. They are intrepid leftist dudes from Montgomery, Alabama trying to spread the word about the impending Communist revolution led by Soros and antifa. Or something. It's really mostly mostly just a bull session between three Southerners and a Yankee about racism in the South, their podcast, video games, and a lot of other non-related miscellany. So come and sit a spell!

TPPP Episode 117 : Facebook Follies
Sorry y’all for this being late This whole pandemic thing has got me down and I haven’t had motivation to do anything. Better late than never though, right? I tried to do a Facebook Live version of the show, and it was a bit messy. For one thing, I kept getting distracted because I was trying to see if I could get someone else on last minute because it was just me. I managed to finally get Lyman on, but the feed kept cutting out, which I assume was because of the internet bandwidth being overloaded because everyone was quarantined and watching Netflix and/or porn. We basically just ran our mouths about the coronavirus and how it’s fucking everything up, as well as the way dumbass politicians are fucking the response up, and how stupid people are stupid, as well as some few bright spots during this whole while apocalypse. Two White guys bitching. Who can resist? Enjoy!

TPPP Episode 116 : Things to do in Quarantine When You're Bored
Welcome once again to the The Triple Po! This week, I asked Amy from The Ginger Snaps Podcast on once again to co-host since I wasn't sure if my crazy but cool scatterbrain of a co-host Lyman was coming on. He did, however, deign to come on later. Initially, I was going to talk about the current shitshow that passes as politics nowadays, as well as everyone's favorite pandemic, but Amy convinced me that she was tired of hearing about it, and probably everyone else was too, so instead we talked about fun stuff we could do to keep our minds off the imminent apocalypse! We talked about everything from video games, to free books, to movies, and so much more! Lyman joined us about halfway through, but he didn't really have anything of substance to offer up, as usual. He's mostly here for his boyish charm. I hope we take y'all's minds off how fucked our species is for at least a little while. Now stay home and wash your fucking hands!

TPPP Episode 115 : Toxic Topics
Lyman deigned to show up this week after having taken a break last week. Our discussions included the ‘Bernie Bro’ phenomenon and whether the exist (they do) and if they are toxic (they are). Of course, I have to issue the ‘not all Bernie supporters’ disclaimer (both of us are Bernie supporters), but the problem is significant enough that we think it should be called out more than it is. The coronavirus is our next topic. We discuss the latest news, including the fact that both of our home states have cases (Tennessee and Maryland), as well as the fact Italy locked the entire fucking country down. And, of course, we had to discuss the utterly incompetent handling of the outbreak by Our Orange Overlord. The individual states are having to handle themselves mostly on their own because the Feds are woefully unprepared and ignorant. Just another day in the Trump administration, although this particular fuck up might kill us all. Finally, we talk about the Democratic Nomination race and the current status. We love Bernie, but it’s not looking good for his cause. We then talk about why Biden is shitty, but also that we’re not fucking idiots and we will vote for him if he’s the nominee. There’s a lot of meat in this episode, so come hungry!

TPPP Episode 114 : Zach Attack 3 - The Search for Beer
Welcome to another incredible installment of The Triple Po. There's no Lyman this week, so I have the beer king himself, my long-suffering friend Zach Law from Zachrilege Cast on to talk about various and sundry subjects. We talked about Super Tuesday; his recent trip up here to Nashvegas, and going to a soccer game which he so graciously invited me to; and, most importantly, beer. Zach brought me beer, and thus buys my friendship for at least another six months. We lastly give our thoughts about two shows we both enjoy, The Man in the High Castle and The Expanse. You'll have to tune in for the ratings we gave them. It's like a surprise! Enjoy!

TPPP Episode 113 : Of Humanism and Poetry
This week on the Triple Po, Chris goes solo again as Lyman’s finger was about to fall off and so he went to urgent care. Personally I just think he’s dodging because he’s intimidated by my beard. That’s just my theory, though. This week I have on author and activist Krista Cox. I initially became aware of Krista when I saw her on my friend Zach’s show, Zachrilege Cast. I loved the interview, and so I thought I would ask her to come on my show. Thankfully, she agreed! We talk about her work with Feminist Humanist Alliance, an organization that “strives to build healthy communities that confront discrimination and oppression guided by the principles of intersectional feminism. We are determined to engage inequality through compassion, education, and promoting social liberation”. We also discussed a grant program the FHA is offering grants for going to going to the World Humanist Congress in 2020, as well as a grant for ‘Art for Action’ which facilitates making signs for demonstrations, protests, and rallies. We also talked about the article she wrote about David Silverman regarding the allegations brought against him, and the problem with powerful men in the atheist community. We talk about the status of women in the movement and their level of acceptance in the, and also the level of diversity and how representation is important. Also, we talk about the toxic male YouTube community, as well as men behaving badly on the internet. Oh, Krista does like her some dick pics, as long as they are sent consensually! This is was an informative and also really enjoyable conversation. Krista is a great person, and she is incredibly funny. And she even read a poem of hers about fish and men (did I mention she is also a poet)? I think y’all will enjoy the conversation.

TPPP Episode 112 : Politics and PT
This week on The Triple Po, Lyman and I shoot the shit about the current political landscape, including our thoughts on the Democratic nominees for the nomination. Spoiler alert : There's only two we can really stomach. We then discuss updates on the post-surgery status of Chris' shoulder, including the imminent beginning of some undoubtedly grueling physical therapy for at least two months. The show was a bit short because Lyman was late and we wanted to watch the debate that night. Hope you like it anyway!
