Ep 85 – Kyle Kinane is Here to Not Help! Part Two

January 13, 2022

Well, this is a first my Mightys. Typically I gotta scramble to get calls per episode. Partly because it’s hard to get people fans aware that they’re on an advice podcast and they can CALL THEM DIRECT, party because NO ONE MAKES PHONE CALLS ANYMORE. Which, you know, I get. When I get a phone call from a friend my immediate thought is, oh shit, who died? Lol! Anyway, THIS episode we got SO MANY CALLS that we did TWO EPISODES! Thankfully, my brother was game. So here, I give you PART TWO of UNCLE BBQ! Again, I will not spoil this by giving you even an inkling of the calls. Enjoy!

This Might Help w/Matt Braunger

Ep 84 – Kyle Kinane is Here to Not Help! Part One

January 6, 2022

You asked for it, you got it, Mightys. My brother, Uncle BBQ himself, joins me on This Might Help with Matt Braunger. Kyle and I started out together in Chicago, driving around in his massive Grand Marquis through the snow to bomb in front of crowd after crowd. When it came time to move to LA, we did it together. And you know the rest. When I say you’re in for a treat, I mean you’re in for your very own wedding cake on this one. Once Kyle realized we didn’t have to give very good advice we were off to the races. We caught up, riffed, gave horrible (maybe not) advice, and had a blast. You will too. 

THE CALLS: 

Guys, there were SO many, we had to do TWO EPISODES! And I don’t want to spoil any of them. Pass this one around like a fatty, Mightys! And enjoy.

Ep 83 – Matt Braunger is Here to Help for the Holidays!!

December 30, 2021

Here it is, folks. The last episode of This Might Help of the year. I had to do it alone, just for you. All calls, write-ins, etc, answered entirely by me, your host and favorite dum-dum. This was surprisingly fun as all hell. Have a great holiday season, thanks for listening and/or calling, and feel free to listen to this on your earbuds alone in a closet to escape your family.

Ep 82 – Ali Vingiano is Here to Write/Produce/Star/Help!

December 30, 2021

I didn’t know Ali before we recorded this episode, but now we’re tight as a drum. Not really, but boy did we bond over things, especially anxiety! Ali is probably best known for writing and producing The Morning Show on Apple +, but she’s about to be known as an actor, starring in the new film The End of Us. All of this gave her amazing perspective on the calls. She’s great! Listen in, enjoy, and subscribe. Thanks, Mightys

Ep 81 – John Ross Bowie is a Real Actor Really Here to Help!

December 16, 2021

First off, it’s pronounced Bow (as in “Bow down”)-wee, not like David Bowie. I gotta say that right off the bat because no one pronounces my name right either. Also, we’re both real actors, me and him. Lol! Actually, John is much more the real deal than I am, but hey, he might object. The cool thing about my biz is that everybody (who’s not a dick) is like, “I can’t do what you do!” to the thing they’re not. Actors are like “I couldn’t be a stand-up!” and stand-ups are like “How the hell do you memorize lines?” Anyway, we get along in the end. John is best known for his parts on Speechless and The Big Bang Theory, but has been on a ton of other stuff. This episode was really special because he did it from inside his car. Now, I’m not saying he’s living in it and he’s having family trouble, but you can (No, don’t). This was a fun one, enjoy! THE CALLS: 1) A nice lady without a lot of options hates her job, doesn’t have a lot of joy, and wants some change. Help! 2) Leann has a question: Is online dating even worth it?? 3) A series of write-ins that I won’t spoil here. Thank me later! Love you, Mightys.

Ep 80 – Jackie Kashian Has Advice From the Road, and Her Heart!

December 9, 2021

Longtime traveling comedian lady Jackie Kashian is on the show this week and I couldn’t be happier. No one is nice, funnier, or more grateful for everything she has than Jackie. She’s one of those comics that every comic likes, and her mile-a-minute delivery is near and dear to my heart (as I also talk very fast onstage). Jackie’s seen it all, and it was so fun to chop it up with her and talk about old times versus the new. We’re both on the road, both staying safe, both married, both terrified. We have a lot in common!

THE CALLS:

1) A man has a culinary question FOR THE AGES!!

2) Jason Leonard from Lafayette asks, “What’s so wrong with transition lenses?” What does he mean, listen and learn!

3) A man calls with a convoluted question that defies reason! Enjoy, Mightys. Thanks for listening and for telling your friends. Go see Jackie on tour and check out her new joint, “Stay-Kashian”!

Ep 79 – Christian Duguay Helps and Brings the Valley Heat!

December 2, 2021

I have a massive amount of respect for anybody who makes a scripted podcast. The planning, the creative effort, and the execution can be brutal. There are a lot of them that I like, but Christian Duguay’s brilliant Valley Heat is one that I love. I’m biased, as I’m a voice on it, but I was a fan way before that happened. Valley Heat is one of those podcasts that, once you listen to an episode, you’re hooked. The story of Doug, who broadcasts his podcast from his garage in Burbank and talks only about his life, is gut-busting in its simplicity. Christian and I have been friends a long time, and it was fun to talk about his podcast, catch up on each other’s lives, and offer what might be horrible advice to strangers.

THE CALLS:

1) Lars has a parent who is convinced they were abducted by aliens. How to deal?

2) Lauren from Baltimore hates her job, and you just HAVE TO LISTEN TO THE REST IT’S AMAZING.

3) Caller asks, “How do you motivate yourself to do anything when you just want to do nothing?” THAT IS THE QUESTION! Thanks, MIghtys. Tell your friends!

Ep 78 – Jared Goldstein Doesn’t Want to Help but Will!

November 25, 2021

I first became aware of young comic Jared Goldstein when (back in the dark ages of the lockdown) he and I were both on the same bill of a zoom comedy show. Not sure if you know, but they really sucked ass. However, he had a really good set, and I was like, “Who’s this guy?” Fast forward a year, and he’s just been named one of Vulture’s “21 Comics You Should and Will Know.” I knew he was funny, but what I didn’t know is that he’s a former child actor. We talked rejection, being bitter or not, online action, and plenty more. Really dug having him on, not only because he was funny and a great guy, but because I think we really annoyed his roommate. 

THE CALLS: 

1) A man’s wife has died and now he’s in a secret relationship with her sister. What to do? TES THIS IS A REAL CAR OH MY GOD 

2) A caller can’t stop getting random boners in the pool. Help! 

3) A 24-year-old says he jumps into relationships too fast. Any advice on dating? Also, he might want something fun, also instead maybe something long term? JESUS! Listen in, Mightys! It’s a fun ride.

Ep 77 – Your Dad Chad Daniels is Here to Help!

November 18, 2021

Chad Daniels aka Dad Chaniels has raised three kids and he’s around my age. Seriously. I’m just getting started, and he’s retired lol. Chad had ‘em young, and moved to a place he could afford to raise them (aka NOT NYC or LA). Long story short, it worked out. Chad has a massive, rapid fan base who eat up anything he puts out. I’ve rarely had a better reaction than when I announced he was coming on the show. An added plus is that he’s an old friend and a peach of a man. We two dads had a blast on this one. 

THE CALLS: 

1) a man asks Chad and me, “How do you choose what to repair on your car/house/etc, and what you hire someone to fix?” 

2) Erica, since she was a little girl, has been called Eric by others. WTF to do? 

3) Jackson, a fellow dad, asks, “What’s your opinion on imposter syndrome, as a creative?” 

4) John asks, “COULD YOU GUYS SING MY WIFE HAPPY BIRTHDAY?” Do we do it?? Listen and find out, Mightys! And please, do yourself a favor, go see Chad if he comes to your town.

Ep 76 – Will Miles of Southside Comes to the Helpside!

November 11, 2021

Will Miles is a comedian, friend, and drinking buddy of mine. We also both have daughters the exact same age, so we often have that “Can you believe this shit?” moment together. Recently we took our kids trick or treating for the first time, and before that we spent a weekend in the desert with our families. You might think we have nothing left to talk about, but you’d be wrong. Will is a comedian married to another comedian (the also hilarious Giulia Rozzi) and writes/act on the insanely funny TV show Southside. We talked our childhoods, comedy today, parenthood, failure, and other light topics for your drive to work. 

THE CALLS: 

1) A nice guy who just got married put the reception aside to save money for a house, but would still like the have one. The problem: His friends live nearby, hers do not. She suggests just having one for his friends. Is that okay? 

2) Another guy who just got married is going to Japan for six months. How to keep in touch and keep the anxiety down? 

3) Caller asks, how is it married to a comedian? Enjoy your drive, don’t crash, and watch Southside. Thanks, Mightys!
