#27 – Have A Good Life

January 27, 2021

Well, we have a new administration in White House but our outgoing Leader departed in an interesting manner, would we have expected anything else? Lewis also received his COVID vaccination this week and tells the story. While the loss of Hank Aaron stings losing Larry King was a bit more personal for Lewis since he’s been on Larry’s show and did a benefit for the Larry King Cardiac Foundation. While the live rants this week take us to Conchord, NH fans also submitted their quest to get the vaccine in Plano, TX. A transgender woman who can’t wait to leave Missouri, the little things when it comes to grocery shopping, and all things Pennsyltucky. 

Lewis references comedian Mike Wilmot’s stand-up bit “Sandwiches Will Overcome Racism” watch it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9E47BI39mPk

#26 – I Want A Pardon Too!

January 20, 2021

It’s Inauguration and Inoculation Day for Lewis as he’s celebrating the peaceful transfer of power with a needle in his arm. Just perhaps it will be enough to get rid the vibe of the last 4 years have generated. The bus is not rolling this week but that just allows for an episode of fresh listener-submitted rants. Some people have the state of affairs on their mind and let them rip, while others would rather bide their time by simply airing their grievances about Fitbits or the classic terrible reward for a job well done.

#25 – Too Little, Too F*cking Late!

January 13, 2021

The United States had a really dark week and like many of us Lewis is grappling with how to make sense of it. One thing is certain, he knows there are plenty to blame on the assault on our democracy and he has their numbers. As do many of the people submitting rants, from serious inquiries about how to explain it all to a child, people still not taking the pandemic seriously, the red tape our healthcare system provides, and a man from Iowa who was part of a COVID test group. Before you think this episode is nothing but doom and gloom, have faith because TV commercials are still enraging people and one young man might just have the best car out there just to spite his father. Then Lewis pulls an episode of rants straight out of Montclair, NJ. Where the locals don’t want you there, they got out of the city already, there’s no more room!

#24 – 2021 or 11,800

January 6, 2021

Happy New Year! The year is 2021 – has the ticking over of the new calendar solved all of our problems yet? Probably not, and like many of us Lewis is trying to hold on as best as possible. Which is tough, because the world and its leaders are doing their best to throw the worst at us. And you know things are truly crazy when his Washington Football Team wins its division. Luckily we have some great listener-submitted rants that prove we’re not all losing our minds. Then we roll into Shippensburg, PA’s at the Grove Theater for some live rants straight from the folks at Shippensburg University.

#23 – Pa Rum Pa Pum Pum, Boy Are We Dumb!

December 23, 2020

It’s the final Rantcast of 2020 and Lewis is coming in hot as he attempts to even begin to figure out how to wrap up the year. In a nutshell, it will take an entire 365 days to summarize everything that happened.

On this episode, Lewis fields rants from an American abroad who just returned after spending the last few months attempting to explain how the U.S. handled the pandemic to foreigners. Someone also has a bone to pick with those preaching “love thy neighbor.” How little St. Louis is doing about contract tracing, and even some anger about hot chocolate. But it’s not all negative… Lewis also learns he played a small part in someone’s encouragement to start to pay it forward during the holiday season. The live rants come from Worcester, MA where Lewis has some fond memories yet also had some of the worst Chinese Food of his life.

#22 – A Coyote In The Bronx

December 16, 2020

Here’s something you don’t see everyday… a coyote in the Bronx. But that’s just what happened to Lewis this weekend when he was headed to the golf course. Perhaps it’s a metaphor for these times we live in, or maybe he was just playing through on his way to track down his prey. If you’re also thinking metaphorically, the US also got its vaccine this week – good news since its also been unable to execute the most basic of civic duties to prevent the spread, but who is keeping track.

The live rants pick up again in Springfield, MA as Lewis also fields some user submissions from around the globe including an Australian who has a bone to pick with delivery drivers, someone who was was horrified to see what her neighbor did with hand sanitizer, a healthcare professional that calls bullshit on it all, and the age-old rage against some good avocado toast.

#21 – The McRib Is Back!

December 9, 2020

Lewis notices that the McRib is back and if that’s not a metaphor for some people’s happiness, what is. Fresh rants come pouring in from fans, some long, some right to the point. Before we roll into Rochester, NY Lewis takes this opportunity to read a special rant by an old friend and writer Richard Dresser titled, “He Didn’t Lose.” It sums up the world we’ve been living in for the last 4 years quite nicely.

#20 – Hey! That’s A Great Question

December 2, 2020

Thanksgiving has passed, and while there’s plenty to be thankful for, there’s just as much to rant about! Lewis might be thankful for his football team wining this weekend, but he’s also just as fired up about the world and how our journalists just can’t seem to be good at their job. This week Lewis also took new rants from fans who take aim at Christmas carols and bad teacher appreciation weeks.

#19 – If You Don’t Skip This Thanksgiving You Might Not Be Around For The Next

November 25, 2020

As we embark on what might be a very non-traditional Thanksgiving for most across this nation, Lewis reflects on the last few weeks of turmoil. Is he able to bring levity to the situation? You will have to listen for yourself. For the second episode in a row Lewis pulls some fresh user-submitted rants before whisking everything to Austin, TX where he set up shop at the Moody Theater (where they tape the iconic Austin City Limits) in a city where memories of live performances and great food are sorely missed these days.
