Tara Devlin is a highly successful blogger, show host and comic. She was born and raised in New York City where her early years were not the easiest.

Now, she's amidst launching RepublicanDirtyTricks.com, which has already garnered over 100K likes on Facebook due to her blog's popularity. Tara Devlin and Ron Placone discuss her upbringing, the concept of addiction, Religion, Buddhism, chanting, cooperating with one another, the definition of liberal, the fringe-twist of the Republican party and so much more!

This week's guest is Amy Boyle. Amy is a director for the Los Angeles Chapter of Sunday Assembly. Sunday Assembly is a secular organization that celebrates life and exchanges ideas. Basically, it encompasses the community organizing that churches do, minus the religious narrative. From their website:

"The Sunday Assembly was started by Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans, two comedians who were on the way to a gig in Bath when they discovered they both wanted to do something that was like church but totally secular and inclusive of all—no matter what they believed.

The first ever Sunday Assembly meeting took place on January 6th 2013 at The Nave in Islington. Almost 200 people turned up at the first meeting, 300 at the second and soon people all over the world asked to start one.

Now there are over 70 Sunday Assembly chapters in 8 different countries where people sing songs, hear inspiring talks, and create community together.

Why do we exist? Life is short, it is brilliant, it is sometimes tough, we build communities that help everyone live life as fully as possible."

Ron Placone and Amy discuss her upbringing, what lead her to Sunday Assembly, what it means to be an atheist versus agnostic, why Sunday Assembly is not simply an "Atheist Church" and much more!

Also in this episode: Ron Placone and Carmen Morales discuss Donald Trump's 2nd Amendment comments, revisit the election and the NFL.

"Jonathan Shaw is the Great Nightmare Anti-Hero of the New Age." --Iggy Pop

Jonathan Shaw is a writer and a tattoo artist. He is arguably the most famous tattoo artist in the world, he is without a doubt the first tattoo artist to do late night television. Why? You ask. Maybe because he tattooed countless celebrities including Johnny Depp who became a friend and fan. Or maybe it's because he ran away from home at a young age and joined the LA scene in the 60s and spent time at the Manson Family ranch (before the murders). Or maybe it's because he used to hang out with Led Zeppelin and was friends with Jim Morrison. Maybe it's because when he started doing tattoos he was in Brazil and made his own equipment. Basically, the dude's lived, and fortunately for us all he started writing. His latest effort, Scab Vendor, which will be released in 2017, chronicles all of these items and more. We discuss the book, his life and work, publishing and tons more.

He is the creator and co-producer of the improvised stand-up show, Set List: Stand-Up Without A Net, a TV series on Sky Atlantic in the UK, and on ABC2 in Australia. He is the executive producer of The David Feldman Show on KPFK Pacifica Radio, and Director of the multiple-award winning short film, Runyon: Just Above Sunset, starring Eddie Pepitone. His new show, Prompter, (rejected TED Talks delivered from a "broken" teleprompter) also plays at festivals worldwide.

His show, The Comedy Jesus Show, has toured around the world to critical acclaim. He has also performed at comedy clubs throughout the U.S., and festivals including Montreal, Dublin, Calgary, Vancouver, Edinburgh, Melbourne, Sydney, Austria, and London. Troy is inarguably the world's biggest dog lover.

Sitting in an empty Flappers' Comedy Club in Burbank, we discuss the early days of YouTube in which Troy saw some success playing Jesus, the quest Troy went on in learning about spirituality (in which he explored everything from Christianity to Scientology and everything in between), photography, and Troy's newest endeavor, Set List. Troy explains a few important theories: How to use procrastination for good, and we are all agnostic.

He’s quickly becoming a favorite among comedy fans all over the globe! He’s toured with Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Janeane Garofolo and Rory Scovel!

Derek did not meet his father until his 16th Birthday, where he unknowingly served as his father's accomplice. At home, Derek had an abusive step-dad, and later, due to school not being for him Derek's mother unknowingly sent him to a Scientology boarding school. This was all before a Driver's License!

This year, over 1,000 people that you and I have never heard of run for President. This week's guest, Craig Tomashoff drove across the country and met some of these people.

About the Book:
"Let’s face it. These days, the presidential campaign feels more like a celebrity roast than a chance to compare our political options, what with all the insults and harsh talk flying around. Once upon a time, we looked at the race to be Commander in Chief as a way to vet the person we want to lead our nation. Now it often feels like the process is one table-flip short of being a Bravo reality show. It all makes for great entertainment. However, lost in all this madness is that pure, innocent belief that running for the highest office in the land should really mean something. Which is precisely where The Can’t-idates: Running For President When Nobody Knows Your Name, the new book from veteran journalist Craig Tomashoff, comes in. While politicians continue to turn the election into a late-night comedy sketch, this book tells the story of Tomashoff’s 10,000 mile road trip in 2015 to meet some of the 1,700 regular citizens who believe so much in the process of running for president that they're risking the loss of friends, family and finances in order to try it themselves. Why are these average Americans attempting something that nobody will respect them for and they will ultimately fail at? The Can’t-idates explores the other side of the 2016 election to find the surprising and moving answers to that question. This book is full of amusing, amazing stories of a handful of Americans daring to do the impossible."

Ron Placone and Craig discuss the people he met, some are crazy, some are broken, some Craig would vote for, some are body parts (literally).

This week's guest is James Underdown, Executive Director of the Center for Inquiry in Los Angeles.

"The mission of the Center for Inquiry is to foster a secular society based on science, reason, freedom of inquiry, and humanist values.

To oppose and supplant the mythological narratives of the past, and the dogmas of the present, the world needs an institution devoted to promoting science, reason, freedom of inquiry, and humanist values. The Center for Inquiry is that institution."

Ron Placone and James discuss the concept of pseudoscience, the strong-hold of religion and tradition, the definition of atheism, Scientology, Roswell, Mediums and so so much more. Lotta skepticism in this one folks!

Eric Schwartz is a musical satirist. He tours the US and Europe bringing his music to every audience he can find. He’s been playing music and comedy venues nationally for fifteen years (The Improv, The Bluebird, The Comedy Store, The Bottom Line…). He has composed for and performed in various Satiristas shows spearheaded by Paul Provenza, as well as “The Bad Boys Of Comedy” with Bobby Slayton, Jim Norton et. al. His songs have been sung by Ronny Cox, Holly Near and Van Dyke Parks. Schwartz is possibly the only artist in the history of the world to get raves from Gloria Steinem and Hustler Magazine, Eric’s songs go from the political to the profane, sometimes both (see the International Songwriting Competition’s best comedy song of the year, “Clinton Got A Blowjob”.) Eric’s latest CD release The Aristocrat, which Paul Zollo (Songwriters on Songwriting) calls “A Comic Treasure” and The U.K.’s Rock’n’Reel magazine calls “beautifully produced and perfectly executed,” contains “There’s A Picture…”, currently in rotation on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show. Schwartz has also garnered radio play on stations as diverse as Howard Stern’s 100, Raw Dog Radio, The Ed Schultz Show and All Things Considered. Schwartz’ latest release is “The Better Man”, which Brian Keathley of KALX Berkeley calls “by far his best work yet. A great collection of tunes with humor, and social commentary – some of which is damn profound. Be listening for it this week and beyond on my radio shows!” Ron and Eric discuss his roots in Boston, the folk scene in New York City, touring, romance, and Eric performs his new song, "Don't Vote," a topical must-hear! Enjoy!

Also, Ron and Carmen Morales discuss Carmen finally getting into Game of Thrones.
