Show Notes

Chris asks how Zane came up with his amazing animations from his shows that explain complex concepts in concise periods of time. Zane explains how his shows' goals were to be as entertaining as possible and "trick us" into learning about the various cultures he experienced in his travels.

Jason tests Zane on his Japanese, and Zane explains the method to his madness. Jason speaks for his country as he often does. Zane explains how he plans to do a 90-date stand-up comedy tour that involves him performing at breweries and doing collaboration beers in each location.

Jason offers to be Zane's "fixer" for Australia. And finally, Zane busts a myth about hangover cures and shares his secret weapon that he sought after for four years. Zane closes by explaining why he's moving from travelogues to stand-up comedy.

Retro 1980s with Calico Kids Author Todd Downing-Ep.15

Jason is blown away by the period-specific intro theme, then he and Chris revisit the 1980s, including music, dyed hair, rugby shirts, and very short shorts. Jason describes how Possums in Australia are more likable and cuter than their American counterparts. Chris takes Jason through a gauntlet of the 1980s (music, sports, nuclear proliferation, movies) with a quiz. The two then interview Author Todd Downing about his early 1980s period piece, Calico Kids. Todd shares his typical writing and audiobook development processes and his inspiration to create a Spotify playlist of deep tracks from the early 1980s that goes with the book. Todd does some myth-busting about publishing, and the three then dive into their shared experiences from their teenage years.

Taking Offense with Zane Lamprey- Pt. 1, Ep. 2

Jason is third party offended by a frozen pizza raising some questions with Chris about the nature of offense and how it relates to comedy. Is offense a key part of comedy? Is targeting certain demographics just a bit of fun, or is it part of a bigger problem in society? What about targeting WASPs? Is that ok?  Zane Lamprey- also known as the Anothony Bourdain of drinking- joins The Recombobulator Lab to help tease this out. Together they try to identify 'the line' in part 1 of this 2 part episode and better understand the idea of taking offense.  After such a fun episode in season 1 with Zane, Chris and Jason couldn't wait to get him back on for season 2 to talk about the hot topic of taking offense. Since they spoke last Zane has been doing a stand-up tour around breweries in the US. He also did a show at a weed farm. It was a shareholders night with a difference. Everyone was h1gh and Zane had to figure out the audience dynamic a little differently to how he usually does. Zane addresses a question that is on a lot of people's minds about being a comedian on tour. How on earth do they stay in shape while drinking at every show? Alcohol and comedy go hand in hand almost as well as comedy and offense. So what is Zane's secret and how does he stay such an 'attractive man' to quote Jason? The topic of offense is on the tip of everyone's tongues in interviews with comedians, according to Zane. The way he sees it the landscape is always changing. Comedians are consistently setting and moving the bar. ...
