Setoiyo Gives Back

Setoiyo Gives Back

On this week's episode, I interviewed comedian, dancer, and all around good guy Setoiyo.

I met Setoiyo a few years ago in the Philadelphia comedy scene where we both did stand up. He was always funny and had a uniquely charismatic stage presence. We spent many late nights at Helium Comedy Club in Philly talking about politics and life, so it was great to talk to him again and capture some of that energy for the podcast. He was also a guest on my past comedy podcasts.

In this podcast, we get into the state of stand up comedy in 2020, how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected our careers, and most importantly, the work Setoiyo is doing to help young people in his community plan for their futures. It's much harder to fight our current political and economic systems if too many of us are left behind, so any effort to build up people and communities can be a force for good if it gives us the tools to fight back. You generally won't get too far in an activist pursuit without a little bit of income. Trust me, I know.

You can find Setoiyo on Twitter @Setoiyo1 and his podcast @ThemBoysPod.

In this episode's midshow segment, I expand upon some ideas from my most recent YouTube video about Jordan Peterson and his nonsensical ideas about Marxist universities and cultural Marxism.

This week's episode also ends with my new Christmas song, "Overthrow Santa Claus," which is about Santa's elves mounting a snowcialist revolution. You can find the lyric video here, and you can find the track on Spotify, Apple Music, BandCamp, and all music platforms.

Hope you enjoy the show this week. I'll talk to you all soon!
