student at marshall county high school right here in her home state of kentucky clear was recently selected for a national fellowship program called twenty two by twenty his mission is to connect more diverse young voices in the media gearing up for the twenty twenty election a clearer thanks for joining me here in fact i think it'd be here so tell me about this fellowship so essentially what the fellowship there about ten fellows from all across the united states an end every month we do these projects that we all called action so it could be anything from you know making a meme about voter registration or you know just trying to get are peers involved in the civil process that's a really exciting program to be part of so you're working on getting more people to vote what else do you wanna see kids you're age doing in the process young adult i should say you're age doing in the process i would really like to see people just get more informed start giving their own research you know getting personally involved in politics because it really does affect us even if you're not old enough to vote or if you just became old enough to vote you absolutely need to be involved in that process and that could be anything from you know knocking on doors were a campaign phone banking or even just talking cheer friends at school about who they're gonna vote find a primary or their parents will vote for anything to get involved is important and you have peers in this program all over the united states is not right yes so what kind of reception are you getting at your local high school i think the reception had been in pretty positive so far i mostly involve people that i know are willing to participate so that helps a little bit i think overall people in my area and you know sometimes we have a hard time getting people more involved in politics picks you know i believe in a rural area but i think that everyone is excited to learn whenever they realize how much does it affects their own life personally because i know especially for high schoolers it's easy just say well you know i can't vote yet or i just registered and i just don't think that this really matters to me personally but whenever you sit down and talk to people and you say well look at your local representatives look what they're doing for you or what they're not doing for you i think people want to become more actively engaged when you have that kind of conversation with someone what is the most common issue that you see a light turned on for them like oh this really does matter to me i think for a lot of people especially my area agricultural policy he is a really big thing for us a lot of people at my high school are going into occasional technical training so anything that affect those areas in particular but also my area was affected by gun violence and so a lot of times with students who were involved in you know marc wise and and things like that a lot of times they will look at gun violence policies what is it that you think prevents people from voting or registering to vote at your age i think just that level of apathy and thinking you know my vote doesn't matter my vote doesn't count that really does affect the perception of being civically engaged so i think that you know that really hurts people bought and they do become more apathetic so that process because they think you you know even if i vote for i want you it doesn't matter because i'm a democrat democrats don't care if you're republican republicans don't get elected here so i think just sort of breaking out perception is one of the biggest challenges if we had greater participation from people who are eighteen in the process what kind of impact do you think that would have on are politics i think are politics would definitely start looking at more issues that affect people my age specifically you know on college tuition and and the rising prices the just getting a quality education is one of the most prevalent issues that i hear people talk about and you know my friends and stuff we talk about that a lot because paying for college is so so hard in this day and age but i think also politics we talk a lot more you know we're talking about climate change a lot better something that'd be younger generation my generation is looking at a lot more closely than are older relatives and legislators because we will be the want to have to deal with those problems in the future there's been a lot of conversation about lowering the voting age to sixteen what's your perspective on that discussion for me personally i think that lowering the voting age definitely has its pros and cons i it's something that i've been looking at personally and it's it's one of those things but it's really hard to decide on but i honestly don't see why it would be a problem to in baltimore people in the process i think you know sixteen year old are definitely we part of you know this sort of generation that needs to be involved in the legislative process i think earlier you can get involved in that process you know the more invested you will be so if we start reaching out to sixteen year old seventeen year and they are able to vote they will become lifelong voters in my opinion and i think that that is so so important so i really i think that lowering the voting age would probably be for the best but there's arguments about by exposure one of the aspects of your fellowship is to talk about getting a greater diversity of voices in media so i'm wondering what you think of the twenty twenty coverage so far and what kind of sources you care about and what you like about those sources i think twenty twenty coverage average you know you see a lot of the same couple three candidates are so and so i think definitely getting more voices in there and we've recently seen that a little bit more 'cause you know originally you had you're you know talk to kennedy like pete buddha judge is sort of rising in the ranks a little bit and a lot of that is from you know media attention that he got you know he earned that and so i think making sure they were able to amplify those different voices is so important but for me personally i am a big big npr fan i absolutely adore npr so i think that 'em finding unbiased sources like that is so important to make sure you know you wanna listen to an end how you want receive information but also so you know podcasts like this one i think are great way to get information but also hear other people's opinions because you know especially with listening dependency politics i feel like i'm they're having that conversation with you guys and that is so helpful for me to formulate my own opinions indians because even if i don't agree with you it forces me to think about why don't agree it's not an issue what started you're interested in politics for me personally i whenever i first came to high school we had a young democrats club and it was it was a little you know in a small club and i go to a so much more high school so i wasn't really looking at it you know to be in the cloud necessarily but i figured they find joined it would make my parents mad so i decided to sign up at the joke but you know the morning got involved in the club because my friends where you know pretty heavily in politics the more realized that this does affect me in this is something i absolutely care about so so i you know i started knocking on doors and campaigning for people and i just really found a passion for it and i realized how important that it was to my community that young people like myself being involved and make sure their voices are heard so 'em now imprisoned end up being democrats clubs that really came full circle but i think that just getting involved in clubs in organizations in high school really propelled me to this point what would you say to parents of kids who are not interested yet in parents who really want their kids to get excited about this process how can parents best be supportive i think it's probably much more effective coming from you and your peers but what can people in my age group due to be helpful year i think just sort of starting conversation first off it's so important because you know as i was growing up my parents were never very end the politics they weren't politically people they would vote but that was about it and i didn't do a lot of research but 'em and i think that's where a lot of parents especially in my area you know are coming from they're not accurate politically participants but you know if you want your kids to be involved in that process you also have to be involved so i think you know talking about primary candidates as a family you know making making sure you're could understand why you're voting for you are voting for and then being open to a discussion because i know you know sometimes my parents will disagree on politics and whenever i was younger that felt very much like you know we have a disagreement agreement that shutting me down and i don't need have you know certain opinions that are different so i think that and making sure that kids don't have that protection you know we have a diversity of opinions and that's absolutely fine as long as you could have a productive conversation about it so i think making sure that those conversations are being added healthy and really positive way where you're encouraging you're a child so you know it's one of their own interests symbolic because everyone has certain issues that they care about more than others and making sure that your children you know understand why you vote the way you do and that it's okay if they don't wanna wait in the future what's up next for you clear what do you have on deck for this program but you're excited about currently we are in some of the last stages of the program which is very sad but were working on a raft you call the action and are last will actually be sort of free style so we can do pretty much whatever we want with it so i'm exploring options but on the twenty twenty campaign overall has been an absolute blessing in my life and i had an amazing time being part of it an i really can't wait to continue this work with other programs and in college and just involving my pictures in the civic process is so important to me and just having the opportunity to do that has been incredible well i'm so glad that you're doing it thank you for getting more people excited about the process is there anything i've not ask you that you think it's important for people to get involved in politics bested he can i think that's just the most important thing just making sure that you're informed and engaged after do thank you so much

And I'm sitting here in Georgia after celebrating Christmas and new years with my family in my new house that you guys bought me. Thank you very much. And I haven't been able to spend a lot of time in it this year because I've been so busy. So I've really been enjoying it. But for this episode because we weren't together. What I decided to do was to do the chose year end review. So this entire episode is may reviewing the year. What I liked what I didn't like, and then we will finish with sweet song from our buddy. Wailer Walker junior. I would also like to state that all opinions and jokes in this podcast are completely. That's all may. So if you if if I said some shit that sucked don't blame the other guys for it. Because I'm just kind of a cutting cutting myself open enlighten. Let myself bleeding the bull here. Emotionally at the end of the year some shit. I said that maybe I won't even agree with next year. But tau fell tau feel about this year. And I hope you like it and hope you share it with your friends anyways. I love you. And I hope you guys have a fantastic two thousand not teen. Here is chose year. End review skis. Well. Two thousand eighteen was a crazy year. It started off with our president bragging on Twitter that his nuclear button is much bigger and more powerful than Kim Jong UN's and it ended with Elizabeth Warren, a brilliant woman who he so cleverly calls Pocahontas announcing her candidacy for the two thousand and twenty presidential nomination. Along the way the Philadelphia Eagles ended a fifty seven year title drought. A fish booking movie won an Oscar Bill Cosby went to jail, even though he never cussed and always wore pants that fit and a self driving car caused a fatality marking the beginning of Skynet as we know it. Harvey Weinstein was charged with right Kevin Spacey was charged with felony sexual assault. Louis C K admitted to pulling his wany out in front of women and syncing that he no longer fit in on this planet Burt Reynolds apparatus into a force ghost. The Hawaii ace sent a false alarm about a ballistic missile attack. Trump lamented shithole countries Putin killed some of his critics much to the chagrin of literally no one in the GOP. And the Dow Jones had its biggest drop since the two thousand eight financial crisis causing several rich assholes to wish that the ballistic missile attack had indeed ban real. Teachers in West Virginia went on strike. Trump accepted an invite to meet with Kim Jong UN Martin Luther King's assassination turned fifty and several major companies cut ties with the NRA. And all of the sudden conservatives didn't see protesting as something just for entitled black people and pissed off lesbians who know how to crochet. Exhausted. After a lengthy career spent finding new ways to call poor people. Lazy Paul Ryan announced he would not be running for re election. The state of California became the world's fifth largest economy. Well, the state of Iowa approved the heartbeat Bill banning most abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected which luckily for struggling young mothers in Iowa takes a very long time in negative twenty fucking degree weather, President Trump announced his intention to withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement and because that didn't make him feel stupid enough. He didn't can't sold the carbon monitoring system speaking of canceled. Roseanne got fired for being exactly who she was when she got hired in horse racing. Pre-race favourite justify became the first horse since eighteen eighty two to win the Kentucky Derby while unraced as a two year old also in Kentucky, Kim. Davis continued to look like a horse while behaving like it was eighteen eighty two and hating mixed race two year olds. California was forced to evacuate residents in fear of ice storm described as an atmospheric river, which does not sound like something in a Star Wars movie and definitely doesn't have anything to do with climate change in regards to Cambridge Analytica the British government sent a formal request to Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg to answer questions about the data breaches catastrophic failure of process yet. No one thought to ask him why thirty four year old billionaire still cuts his own fucking hair? Martin Skrela is sentenced to seven years in federal prison for defrauding investors. Investors who all agree that defrauding them was definitely worse than letting all those aids. Patients died in two thousand eighteen reports came in the opioid epidemic may be worse than we thought due to a missions on death certificates, for example, on the form where it would normally say. Overdose. The corner instead wrote he hated his laborious minimum wage jobs so much that he prayed himself to death while listening to Molly hatchet. As a result opioid addiction. Awareness advocates urge congress to spend more money on the epidemic. An anonymous congressman was her say, we gave you toothless dump books heroin tic TACs. And now you also want us to help you not die. When does it? In would these people? Smallville? Actress Allison Mack is charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labour conspiracy leaving out of course, the conspiracy that this is apparently the only steady work you can get after being on the show smallville. Michael Cohen received four hundred thousand dollars to fix talks between the Ukrainian president and Donald Trump. Most of the money was spent finding an interpreter that wouldn't either laugh the entire time or try to end their own life with a plastic bag President Trump made history this year by meeting with the supreme leader of North Korea, Kim Jong UN this historic event proves that. If you want a white nationalist capitalistic rices to be nice to a communist Asian dictator who hates America just tell him that by doing. So he will totally own all the liberal Quakers. Michael Cohen is convicted Paul Manafort is convicted Michael Flynn is convicted Rick gates is convicted popadopoulos is convicted Robert deniro get Cinna suspicious package. Jerry Falwell junior. Also, maybe has touched a suspicious package. Ted Cruz got reelected, even though he looks like someone left hot milk sitting out in jello, mold Brett Cavan, all doesn't tell his diary about all his rights, stupid, dads everywhere. Sincerely, thought liberals were upset that he drank beer, and they yelled that at their TV in front of their daughter who was already too scared to talk to him about sexual assault. Our best attempt at a real life. Tony's tart smokes pot on podcast with Joe Rogan and talks about bear fights. Probably it's a fucking wild time to be alive. Two thousand eighteen has been insane. The Democrats took forty seats in the house and seven more in the gubernatorial election and Michigan became the tenth state to legalize recreation. Marijuana Jeff Sessions, of course, tendered his resignation the next day because he couldn't stand to work for a country where people could legally be that happy next to all those lakes. Michael Cohen, the Trump logger who once said he'd take a bullet for the president has just been given a thirty six month jail term. I guess by a bullet. He meant a big dick of his stupid. But am I right? And because our government literally can't do anything right as its final act of two thousand eighteen it decided to shutdown shutdown. Just like I'm about to do with all the jokes. So that we can talk about something serious that happened in two thousand eighteen and then we will get back to the funny stuff on the podcast. But I feel this needs to be said in Italy, Texas, a sixteen year old opened fire in a school cafeteria and Marshall county high school in Benton Kentucky, a fifteen year old shot sixteen class nights resulting in two deaths with seven others injured. Trying to flee the same at Lincoln high school in Philadelphia during a school basket. Ball gain. A thirty two year old man was shot and killed a parking lot. At Salvador Castro middle school in LA to fifteen year old students were shot in their classroom with three others escaping with minor injuries thought to be caused by something other than gunfire at oxen hill, high school in Maryland, a student was shot in the parking lot at Marjory stoneman Douglas high school in parkland, Florida, a nineteen year old with a semi automatic rifle killed seventeen papal at Huffman high school in Birmingham. Alabama a seventeen year old was shot and killed during all of this by the way, Trump and the GOP posited that the students would be safer if teachers had guns. On February thirteenth two thousand eighteen at seaside high school in seaside, California, three students were injured when their teacher who was also a reserve police officer accidentally popped off his God damned gun during the middle of a fucking gun safety lesson. Two students were shot in great mills Maryland, resulting in one death two days later in right town, Missouri. A man was shot in the stomach at a mate at forest hill. High school in Ocala a student was shot in Palmdale, California. A student was shot at Santa Fe high school ten were killed and thirteen wounded a student opened fire at Noblesville middle school at a football game. At Palm Beach central two men were shot and a woman was trampled at William Ryan's high school in Jacksonville. Florida three people were shot outside of the football stadium. With a nineteen year old pronounced dead on the sane at Cole middle school. One was injured at canyon springs. High an eighteen year old was shot and killed in front of hundreds of his classmates in Butler, high school student was shot and killed at Simon's, Dale element. Entry apparent got shot in the leg when another parents gun accidentally discharged in their pocket. Shortly before dismissal time and in Pittsburgh, a seventeen year old was shot on a school bus headed home. The only suspect that was female was twelve years old and was the only case in which the shooting was deemed unintentional. None of the suspects were legal immigrants. None of the suspects were radicalized by fucking antifa. The only wall that could have prevented. This is the one we plays between our citizens and proper mental health care. Below two thousand eighteen wasn't all that bad. I mean, we had some good times. Didn't we like how come come on? I know there was something. Just let me think for a second. Oh, yeah. Deadpool two deadpool two it was so good. And and you never know what was it could truly go into way. Of course. We're superhero movies often times the second one is better because you know, you don't have to worry about fiddling around with the origin store. You can just jump straight into the action. You don't have to lay any groundwork or trying to make sure the audience can keep up with all the zany characters. You're introducing for the first time. How it's a it's part of like that with a president second term. Don't you? Don't you? Oh god. Oh god. Please. Please. Don't let me think of that. God. God damn. You Trump is not Trump is not charming sexy or funny. He is he is quite literally the complete opposite of dead pool. He is he is alive diarrhea jacuzzi. I don't necessarily think that's the opposite of death. Pool. But still Trump is is not dead deadpool. He can't get a God damn sequel, please for the love of the fake fucking Lord that I don't believe in. We have got to support. Whoever wins the nomination in twenty twenty. I don't give a shit. If it's Mitt Romney with his fucking dick tucked. Deadpool was super good though, seriously and also not for nothing, but the Super Bowl was RAD man they were fucking eagles. And there were patriots. And it was it was American shit, man. Like, except for the fact that will, you know, if someone decided to actually be a real patriot and protested during the national anthem, and they would be fined because the president quite literally threatened a business organization involved in free market capitalism. Which I thought was what he jerked off to it not that he would use federal tax laws to penalize them. If they didn't do what he said, he he took it back later saying that he was just making a point. But I mean, what what point could it possibly have been other than other than you know, he wants to be an authoritative dictator in fascist country. I understand the argument that is employed. The NFL the players do have to follow certain rules, and that their constitutional rights are not being violated because no one is saying that they will be thrown in jail for protesting or exercise free speech. But Donald Trump very much is literally using the power of the government to salads people which is one hundred percent unconstitutional yet, it doesn't have anything to do with guns. So I guess nobody cares. Home up. God we live inhale someone please site me. Sincerely, though, y'all. I know it seems like things could not get worse. But trust me. They absolutely can. And they absolutely will. I'm teasing. Well. Okay. No. I'm not. I totally believe that. But I also believe that we have to lead that attitude in two thousand eighteen of course, things are bad. And of course, there are those in power who have the capability to make them worse. But using that as an excuse to lay down and do nothing that's not what's going to get us the White House back. I'd like to think that the midterm elections were spark enough to fan the flames and forward, but I've learned especially over the past three years that diligence can't take a break and prosperity ain't gonna stop the hand, you a tissue. We gotta keep moving forward. And we have to do it in a way that gives us the best possible chance to set this ship in the right direction some resolutions that I'm going to make that I hope you will join me on these. And please know that I will absolutely slip up on some of these from time to time I will make mistakes, but. I will learn from them, and I will try not to make them. Again. Matter of fact, that leads me to my first resolution, I will not crucify people for not being perfect. Look, there are some people that are absolutely indefensible and beyond redemption. You're all probably sitting there thinking of several examples right now that's not who I'm talking about. I'm talking about the canceled culture that us the liberals for the most part are responsible for we have got to stop throwing candidates allies and hail friends and families out on their asses. Just because they fucked up a little bit look Kevin Hart tweeted, some super shitty tweets. I think at the time he thought they were funny and not a big deal. But I think that now he feels very differently. And honestly, I don't think it's because he got caught in the time since Kevin Hart tweeted, those things his profile in Hollywood has risen he is. In all sorts of new people and had all sorts of new laugh experiences. Kevin Hart without even trying is a different person than he was when he tweeted those tweets, and I for one thing that we should be allowed to grow. I have no idea some of the things that I said when I was younger and high school, I was into drugs and foods. I was also, you know, real fucking dumb because I was young. And my brain sucked I've been guilty of writing people off for shit. They said in the past but that makes me extremely hypocritical. And I'm not going to do with this year. Kevin Hart said some homophobic shit years ago. He should not have he also probably made the right call by dropping out of the Oscars. He also probably deserves to lose a good bit of gay fans because I could see how it'd be hard to look at him in the same way again. But I believe he is a human who has grown for the better Mike Pence. However is a man in his sixties who still firmly believes that gay people should be electrocuted. It straight. That's the type of shit. We're up against that is true evil. I said all that to say this whoever runs against Trump in twenty twenty is going to be flawed. The reason for that is because they will be a human person. Yes, we should hold elected officials to a higher standard. But no that standard can no longer be perfect because it does not exist, and it is no way to win an election. Resolution number two instead of focusing on the bad in those oppose I will cling to the good in those support. Look, this is already extremely hypocritical considering open this podcast with pretty much nothing, but jokes bashing everyone hate and what I hate about them. But hey, that's part of my job. I can at least attempt to turn it on turn it off. Will at least try really hard. But I do think this is important going forward on a national scale at least where the Democratic Party is concerned. Look, we were so sure that Trump wouldn't make it to the primary that we made fun of him and people who supported him we were so sure that he wouldn't win the primary that we made fun of him. And the people who supported him we were host certain that he wouldn't win the presidential election that we made fun of him. And those who supported him we spent so much time doing this that not only did we look like obnoxious and cocky, dick bags causing a lot of people who were sick of being called white trash deplorables. Just because of how they looked to jump ship. But it also got in the way of us building a candidate that could actually win. Look I voted for Hillary. I would do it again. She is the most qualified. Person I have ever voted for and she deserved the victory. But the reason she didn't get it is that we're so convinced that Donald Trump was going to lose the election that we forgot to win it. We can't just sit here over the next year and a half or so and continue to pick apart. His every asinine and dumb. Fuck move. We know he sucks, we know. He is a racist. We know he is a bully. What we should also know by now is that the supporters he has left also know that and they do not give a fuck. We are not going to win. This thing by convincing people that Trump is not a good president. We are going to win. This thing by finding a better one making them as good as they can be an fucking voting for them. Resolution number three. I'm going to attempt to be nice to those who hate me. Now, this one is tough. When someone calls me a liberal snowflake. It is so easy to go to my default setting my default setting. Of course is a yeah, I'm a liberal snowflake playoff. I'm not the one who gets all bent out of shape about the design on God damn Cup a Christmas coffee. And I'm also not the one who is terrified that a plant from the earth will turn all our kids into gay skateboarding. Satanists hail. I wish that was the case that would make Wade fucking rule even harder for me. But it doesn't do that you've bucking pain pill lobbyists, sympathize and son of a bitch. And also if I was such a scared little queer in native safe-space, don't you think that I would be all for a border wall? I'm just saying if you think I'm pussy because I try and say the right pronouns then logically by contrast. You should consider me a bad ass because I. I'm not petrified that I'll get but votes by a drug cartel who followed a family of farmers across the border blunt. Now, Doug motherfucker? Unfortunately, that's what they want you to do people who pose you won't you to get riled up and lose your mind. So that you look insane and lose all credibility to the calm and rational folks around you, don't do it kill with kindness. When someone calls, you a lib tarred, and you know, they're going to tell them that you're going to pray for them when they keep coming back at you. Tell them that you'll probably harder when they accurately call you out for not believing in God, tell them that you know, they are hurting and you empathize with them. This will drive them. Absolutely crazy. And at the very least get them to block you on Twitter. So you can go back to looking at old wrestlemainia clips and eating hot dogs in pace. I'm aware that that one is probably specific to me. But you get it kill them with kindness. It might not work on them. But I do think you'll feel better. And in these times, that's almost all we can hope for. I would also like to point out right now that on this particular podcast, these jokes and resolutions our own. I would like to think that trae drew agree with me, at least on the majority of these things, but I'm not gonna put words in their mouth. So any disagreements you have with my logic can be addressed to me and me alone on Twitter, if I'm being honest, it's very possible that I won't agree with these three resolutions by the end of this year. There are lots of things that I used to believe that I no longer do and vice versa. That's what grownup is. I guess every ten years I hope to think that may from ten years ago was a bit of a fucking idiot. That's growth. That's how you know. You're living. Okay. Now onto something positive my favorite things of two thousand eighteen. So for my favorite things of two thousand eighteen I just off the top of my head real quick made a couple of lists. I didn't really look anything up is just coming off the top of my head his that's how you know. They're really your favorite shit. Right. So this are some events in two thousand eighteen that were my favorite things that happened to me that I hope I can somehow replicate in two thousand and nineteen. Let's see I've got to work on TV show with my best friends. Holy shit. That is amazing. I got to drink root beer with T-Bone and Kelly Kelly Corey and T-Bone Burnett two of my heroes. I got to drink root beer on their couch. Jesus Christ what a life. I got to meet out gore. I got to meet my literal all-time, idle male fucking Brooks and have dinner with him. I've got to take my mother to the French laundry. A once in a lifetime dining experience, simply because of another thing, I'm very thankful for you. Fuckers you supported the tour you supported the book. Support everything, and I was able to afford to take my mom and not something off of her bucket list, which is eating at the French laundry. Another thing that was one of my favorite things in two thousand eighteen was the last month of stand up in December. We got to spend at two my favorite comedy clubs that Washington DC improv which I could not say. I don't know. I couldn't say better things about the staff there. It was absolutely fucking amazing. They treated us like kings. We went out every night. It was fantastic. Also zanies in Nashville, Tennessee, it was one of the most magical weekends of mine tire life. All our friends came out. The shows were absolutely fantastic. The staff treats us like family. Fucking Al Gore was their Hayes Carl was there. We learn Walker junior. Was there T-Bone and Kelly were there who the fuck? I know that I'm forgetting people that were there. But it was it was just it was unbelievable. I got to this year watch both of my nieces Eljay and Sadie grow. That was fantastic. I also have made new friends I've made a ton of new France. It's one of my favorite things about the industry that I'm in. It's not just being able to do stand up being able to work on these cool projects, it truly the people that you get to meet when you're doing you get to meet some of the most interesting people like minded people and truly sweet people who are just tremendous artists that just man just moves me. And in a way that I didn't think I could be moved. I've really thankful for all the friendships that I've had this year. The most important thing though that I did this year. The thing that I'm the most thankful for my favorite event. I got married to my best friend, and I love my life, amber Roberts who. I can't believe it. But she took my last night. She's now amber forced her getting to Amit senior a lot. Because of all these other things that just mentioned I've been a very busy boy. But luckily, I'm married to someone who is extremely supportive extremely independent, and those were the events of two thousand eighteen that I liked the most here are the movies in two thousand eighteen at all the most this is in no particular order, and this is very very rivaling because well, it's in no particular order until the very end. It's very rivaling. I didn't mean for it to this way. But apparently all I did was watch Buchan comic book movies this year. So. A set aside from the comic book movies favorite movies. I saw this year. Won't you be my neighbor? The Fred Rogers documentary. Also, I really enjoyed Chappaquiddick. I love blockers. I thought John CENA was absolutely fantastic end. The dude has very committee chops I loved I Tanya, I love the ballot of BUSTER Scruggs it immediately became man. Here's the deal would about a bus or scripts is that like over the Dow is my favorite Coen brothers movie. An like the Bosque has always been number two. But like the more I watched Balata BUSTER Scruggs, it might be about to take over both of them manage fucking so good. If you haven't watched it, please give net flicks. Check at the ballot. A BUSTER Scruggs humble, brag our buddy T-Bone as he does. With all the Coen brothers movies. Did the music for that. Which is another reason. That's fantastic. Robin Williams, come inside my mind. I absolutely loved that movie. Also enjoyed that's not a superhero movie game night. I thought game night. Was the prize comedy of the year? It's not that. I thought it would be bad at the cast is Jason Bateman. Rachel mcadams. I can't off the top of my head. I can't remember anybody else right now. But like I thought well, this'll be serviceable it'll be fine. It was fucking hilarious. It's one of my favorite comedies that. I've seen game. Not is fantastic. Here's here's the real. Here's the real movies that the show enjoyed this year. Black Panthers Spiderman homecoming Infinity war incredible to wreck it Ralph to a solo ant man in the wasp dead poll too. And the reason I actually went to see this tonight because I knew it'd be talking about my favorite movies of two thousand eighteen and I had this feeling that this was going to end up being my favorite one. And I was correct Spiderman into the spider Vars is unlike anything I have ever seen before in my life. I cannot suggested enough. I don't wanna say anything about it because I'm afraid that I'll just get too giddy and I'll give shit away. It's unbelievable. I was going to say that it's like the citizen Kane of superhero movies. But honestly for me, it might just be citizen. Kane it's unbelievable as the best movie of two thousand eighteen and you should fucking go say, those are my favorite movies, and here, we're. Gonna do my favorite albums just off the top of my head John career forgiveness. Unbelievable Casey must graves last album TI's last album, American aquarium thinks change J. Cole K of day MAC Miller swim in it was hard to beat MAC Miller swimming, for me, I actually just got into like literally as he died, my buddy DJ Lewis friend of the podcast who you'll actually hear from later this week or next week. He'd been trying to tell me to get onto Mike Miller for a very long time. And I finally did Rasi died and. I really fucked up. That guy was tremendous. He was truly on the something different. And I believe that his best work was a head him. So if you didn't fuck with Mike Miller before. Holler is swimming. It's a great album. However, in my opinion. Well, I didn't mention this sons a Bill their last album, please go go check that out it. I've never heard a band. Completely changed sounds. But it not be a bad thing. I love their old sound out love this new sound that they're going with checkout son's bills new album, but to me the album of the year undisputed is from friend of the podcast. You know him you love him Wheeler Walker juniors. Third effort WW three Wheeler. Walker three it is album of the year. Fantastic. It's whatever you needed to be it can fire. Yup. It can put you in a better mood. It'll make you laugh it'll make you cry. It's country music done the white country music should be done.
