You’re about to meet your newest potty-mouthed best friend.

Blake Bogosian is coming in hot with stories of street brawls, fateful calls, his film project “100% Human,” and tales of his father’s Hollywood liquor store. Settle in for a solid hour of wanting to be more like Blake and wishing your dad was more like his.

Show Notes:

What can we say about Blake that can’t already be found on a bar bathroom wall? He’s smart, he’s funny, he’s hip- he’s the human embodiment of “let’s all grab a drink and chill.” Blake was born and raised in Van Nuys, CA by an Irish mom and an Armenian father, the prestigious owner of Bogie’s Liquor.

He grew up helping his dad tend the store, fighting off hooligans, being star stuck by Uncle Fester, and selling expensive liquor to a young Nicholas Cage. He relocated to San Francisco for school in 2004 and has since been terrorizing the streets with his wit, charm, and maddeningly attractive wife.

He now works as an editor at Beast Editorial while simultaneously composing his project 100% Human.

Lisa Glover never intended to invent greatness.

What started as a Halloween costume transformed into a product line that caught fire in the hearts of dinosaur fans worldwide. This is a story for all our makers. To get your own personal dinosaur, check out her work at

Show Notes:

We’ve all wanted to have that big idea. Something so undeniably brilliant that others ask themselves, “Why didn’t I think of that?” while the rest of us say, “This is great and I must have it!” That’s how we feel about Lisa’s Kit Rex dinosaurs. It began as a giant 15-foot cardboard raptor that stunned a Halloween party, later followed by what would have been just a cut-and-dry A for a college class. But at the insistence of friends and fellow students, the creation has grown.

Now, Lisa sells 3-foot velociraptor kits on her website and is preparing to launch full scale, 15-foot long velociraptor suits like her first Halloween costume back in 2013. Each costume takes about 20 hours to complete in the maker space she works with in Pennsylvania, but the $30,000 she successfully raised with her Kickstarter is a great help in moving the process along. Soon she’ll be presenting her animal kits at the World Trade Fair.

Show Notes:

Never in any of our lives have we met a more positive soul than Amanda Christina. Amanda has had her share of tough times and, while she admits to having bad days, is no longer allowing anything to bring her down.

She shares our belief system of #befuckinbetter and talks about her own methods for staying on top of the things you want to achieve. But it’s not all business.

Amanda is incredibly skilled at April Fool’s jokes, including the ultimate one on her parents of, “When are you coming back from SF?” She shares with us the method of Archangel cards and the importance of staying in tune with the world.

If there’s anything we love, it’s a person who knows where they’re at, where they want to be, and how they’re going to get there.

Ain’t nobody got time for bad party guests!

Dom, Jenn, and Aya remind you what shit not to take when you’re hosting a shindig. Also taking the stage are bad housemates, horoscopes, dental advice, and not giving into (but also not ignoring) your initial knee-jerk reaction.

Show Notes:
We got all sorts of good shit this time around. Aya regales us with the tale of her reckless roommate. Jenn details her extensive housing history. Dom lords it over everyone that he’s never had to deal. Moving at a breakneck speed, we cover house party horrors, including a Shark Week night gone wrong, and what SHOULD have happened in this situation if we were partying like adults.

Then we take to the screen for a play-by-play of the naked acrobat who didn’t take his pills and then terrorized a train station in SF. (Word to the wise, kids: if you’re taking BART, you’re taking your chances.)

Live onstage in Gainesville, FL…

His lyrics radiate, demonstrate, titillate, annihilate any haters in the screaming crowd when he takes the stage with his hypnotic beats. He’s the Man on the Mic, Mr. Orange and Blue, the freestyler, the entertainer, the optimist: Hip Hop Duke. Check out his sound at or

Show Notes:

Duke is far and away one of the most entrepreneurial and upbeat individuals we’ve had the pleasure of bringing onto the show. His dedication and optimism radiates from every carefully chosen word. We knew going into this he was going to be great entertainment; we just didn’t know hip hop would be so uplifting. Listen as he tells the stories of his start in an elementary school cafeteria and how he rose through the ranks to become one of Gainesville’s most recognizable artists.

From South Sudan to Jacksonville to the University of Florida, Duke has defied all odds and set himself on the fast track to something truly great. We already can’t wait to look back in 5-10 years and say, “You hear that award-winning song? That’s our boy, Hip Hop Duke! We had him on back in the day and now he’s rapping for the world.”
