#112 – Goodbye, Good Riddance 2022

December 28, 2022

Our host checks in this week from his personal cable access studio. This year has been so horrific, Lewis wouldn’t ecven change out of his sweatpants this week! He’s also been feeling a little under the weather, so he didn’t get to spend Christmas with his friends the way he normally would. Sean Hannity admitted that he never believed in thie big lie…really? How can anyone take him, or anyone else on Fox News, seriously? A bomb cyclone just recently hit most of the country. Towards the end of the episode, our host takes a look at the news of the day. As always, please remember to take care of each other. It’s the most important thing we can do for one another. 

This week’s live rants come from the Embassy Theater in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

#111 – Feliz Navidad

December 21, 2022

Lewis checks in this week from his personal public access studio. There’s no rubber chicken this week, he doesn’t want to talk to everyone after what happened last week. Elon Musk put up a Twitter poll asking people if he should be the CEO of Twitter, Trump has to be punished for what he is doing. Carlos Correa signed with the Mets for $315 million. While Lewis was trying to record this week’s episode, the boiler in the upstairs part of his house started to leak and actually leaked through the ceiling. This is the second time this has happened to our host. As always, please remember to take care of each other, it’s the most important thing we can do, especially during this time of year. Thank you all for listening and the support this year. Merry Christmas!

#110 – Assaholic’s Anonymous

December 14, 2022

Lewis checks in this week from Florida. The sunshine state! He had his last few shows of the tour (so far!) this past weekend. Lewis is taking a nice, long break before he hits the road again in January. Recharge and reset! Our host reads a fiery rant from “Arthur Itis” to start things off this week. Listeners and ranters, do you want the rubber chicken to continue to make an appearance on the podcast? Let our host know! This week, Lewis was joined by a new friend. A Funko Pop of Anger, the character Lewis voiced in the movie, Inside Out. As always, please remember to take care of each other, it’s the most important thing we can do for one another. 

This week’s live rants come from the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts Center in West Palm Beach, Florida and the Hard Rock Live in Orlando, Florida

#109 – The Election Is Now Over…So Let The Next Election Begin

December 7, 2022

Our host this week checks in from his public access studio. It’s crazy that another election is already on the corner. We got some great news…the price of gas is coming down! However, great news never lasts long. Inflation continues to rise. The World Cup is here. The US team has been eliminated, as if they ever had a chance of actually winning. Lewis wraps up his tour in Florida this weekend. After that, our host has a nice break from the road. Even though Lewis is off the road, he doesn’t want you to stop sending in your rants! Please keep them coming. As always, please remember to take care of each other. It’s the most important thing we can do for one another. 

This week’s live rants come from the Warner Theater in Torrington, Connecticut and the Borgata’s Music Box Theater in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

#108 – Guns and Butter

November 30, 2022

Our host checks in with us from home again this week as he returned from his vacation in Vermont. While in Vermont, Lewis ate at an absolutely terrific restaurant called the Reluctant Panther. All compliments go to the chef, Segal Rockland. It was a spectacular Thanksgiving meal. It really feels like Christmas up there. 

When are we going to realize that our current gun laws don’t work? It’s astounding how after the recent slate of mass shootings nothing will still get done. It’s all just senseless, senseless violence. The topic of gun laws is just a never ending argument that just goes in circles. It’s never going to change. 63% of the American people live paycheck to paycheck. How is that possible? This is the richest country on Earth and over half the country is struggling to get by. And yeah, yeah, we know about inflation. Here’s an idea, and this one helps with leviating the cost of living in this country. Free healthcare. Canada, and a lot of countries in Europe, already provide the citizens free healthcare. We should be able to do it too. Adding on to this week’s bad news, 2,700 people were from a furniture factory in Mississippi. 2,700 people. Every single one of those workers are going to have a really difficult time recovering from that. And that’s just not right. As we are about 25 days out from Christmas, our host reminds you to take care of another. It’s the most important thing we can do for each other. Especially during the Holiday season. 

This week’s live rants come from the Waterville Opera House in Waterville, Maine and the Paramount Theater – Rutland, Vermont

#107 – Twitter is in the Sh**ter

November 23, 2022

Our host checks in with us home from his humble abode as Elon Musk nearly destroys Twitter, winter comes to New York in full force and Buffalo gets an unbelievable amount of snow. Oh my! This year, fall didn’t happen. It went from summer right into winter. There wasn’t even a chance to feel a slight chill in the air. You probably didn’t even have a chance to grab your fall jacket. No. It went right into freezing cold weather. How about that crazy amount of snow Buffalo got? Unreal. There’s some people in this country who have psychotic amounts of money and just love to play around with it. Elon Musk is one of them. How are you going to take over a company and not know what to do with it? Firing the staff, bringing them back and throwing them in the deep end? Having a vote to decide if the former leader should be allowed on the platform or not? Speaking of the former leader, he decided to announce he’s going to be running again. Politicians are already asking people to donate to their campaign again. Really? Give people a break. We just got done with that. Atleast give us until after Thanksgiving. Lewis takes some much needed time off this week and is going on vacation. He’s heading up to Vermont this week (instead of traveling internationally) with his friend, Neil. Vermont really is beautiful this time of year. Also, Lewis recently went to a benefit in Bethesda, Maryland for a cystic fibrosis run by his friend Rich. Rich has even started a new organization called the “Luvu Project.” The “Luvu Project” does extraordinary work when it comes to mental health in the workplace. The link is below to check out the project. Also, if you’re interested, a link is below to the kickstarter for the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library. This kickstarter helps fun programs at the library such as their youth writing program, Sophie’s Banned Book Club, Social Justice Writing Workshop Series, as well as increasing access to its education programs to learners from all over the world. Lewis wishes you all a lovely Thanksgiving. And as always, take care of each other. It’s the most important thing we can do for one another.
