A self proclaimed “gypsy”, Karen is a marvelous Stand up comic, Paranormal Investigator, Tarot Card Reader, and Reiki Master. We talk about all of the above in this weeks podcast. I have never taken so many notes while talking to a guest. From being a cigarette girl in Vegas to stand up stages around the world and knowledge of the paranormal, Karen is simply fascinating. We learn about fairies, guardian angels, paranormal investigations, tarot card readings (mine included), demonology, reincarnation, reiki and more. Her belief in Jesus and why she thinks he hangs with Buddha. Karen also talks about her own podcast which she hosts with comedian Kira Soltanovich. The two read tarot cards for fellow comedians at Karen and Kira Can Read! This is one of my favorite podcasts to date. ENJOY!

After 4 years (it seemed like 1), my favorite employee of The Bob and Tom Show has decided to move on. Jeff Vibbert came to us as a kid fresh out of college with a dream. We hear about his aspirations and goals as an up and coming comedian who has taken a detour on that career path. Jeff is now working for ex-punter for the Indianapolis Colts Pat McAfee’s new venture at Barstool Sports. Jeff is a perfect fit for the hilarity and bro buddy of Barstool Heartland. He has already experienced his first trip to NYC along with hosting the online “The Things You Missed” segment of Barstool Heartland. Find how Jeff has landed on a show that is perfect for his talent, relive the famous “Beer Mile” segment, why he hates magicians and more. And don’t forget you can still hear Jeff on his own podcast “The Jeff Vibbert Podcast” and on Chick McGee’s podcast “The Chick McGee Show”.

My love for comedy and wonderful comedians continues with my guest this week the talented Carmen Lynch. Her professional credits include: Conan, Inside Amy Shumer, The Late Show with David Letterman and more. Carmen has an interesting background having spent many of her formative years living in Barcelona Spain, her mothers home. The story of how her American father met her mom sounds like a romance novel and has left Carmen with a unique view of love and a wealth of material. We also delve into her fascination with death. (and yes, she even makes the subject funny!) Carmen is about to embark on a tour overseas that includes the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as she promotes her new album “Dance Like you Don’t Need the Money”!
Are you miserable at work and think it is the job. Think again!
Dr. Will Miller is back to talk about his new book “Miserable @ Work”.
Ok, maybe you are not miserable. In fact you may enjoy WHAT you are doing but are still depressed and dissatisfied when on the job. Dr. Will Miller has some interesting and surprising reasons why. He also offers way to improve your work experience. As with all conversations with Dr. Will we also veer off into a wide range of other topics like: addiction to social media, stress, spirituality and even near death experiences. And find out the results of an extensive 75 year study on happiness conducted by Harvard University. You might be surprised at what makes most people happy long term. I think listening to Dr. Will Miller is a great start!
I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with former Kiss and current Grand Funk Railroad guitarist Bruce Kulick and his lovely wife Lisa recently. What transpired may be a surprise to hard core Kiss fans or classic rock fans of GNR.
Seems the Kulick’s have a fondness for the songs of The Great American Songbook or standards. While Bruce’s guitar playing is world renowned, his wife Lisa Lane Kulick has an amazing singing voice. She spent 3 years in a one-woman cabaret show in NYC.
In this interview they talk about blending their two different musical backgrounds into a brand-new single, “If I Could Show You”. Hear the song and find out how this husband and wife became a musical duo.
Will there be more collaborations in the future? Let’s find out.
You can download the song “If I Could Show You” through Apple Music/iTunes and Spotify
