Trevor Noah: They’re Bigger in the Garage

The podcast where politics and pop culture collide! This week the guys talk about announcing the coming of TJ's new baby, ask if being gay is a sin, God vs organized religion, discuss banning electronic cigarettes (vapes) and discuss Antonio Brown.  Also, we play "Hold your Horses" with an episode of Trevor Noah as he breaks down the 3rd Democratic Debate in Houston, and ask if Kamala, Biden and Klobuchar are done?  Are Bernie and Biden and Trump too old to be POTUS? This is the end of Joe Biden's campaign. Why are the spiders so big in the garage and Hass reviews a Villager 125th cigar in the Humidor.  Shots out to Tucky Williams on schooling us last week!

BONUS: Drawing the Line: Talkin’ Politics

Dutch is joined by "Crazy Conservative" Nate Dracon from Drawing the Line Podcast, available at www.TheWeeklyZ.com - the guys discuss civility, calling people racist, the southern strategy, universal health care and other topics in the first of what will certainly be multiple political chats.  Enjoy the bonus!! www.vfupodcast.yolasite.com and www.bigheadsmedia.com/politics 

Girl/Girl Scene: Poppin Mic

Actress and filmmaker Tucky Williams joins Hass and Dutch to discuss her film and the social media and Amazon review conspiracy to destroy it.  The film, Girl/Girl Scene, is available on Amazon Prime for free and due to it's LGBT content was assaulted by right wing anti-gay reviewers, much the same as the Rotten Tomatoes campaign that attempted to sabotage Captain Marvel.

NOTE: Please forgive an issue with Hass' mic, there was a continuing "pop" thru the recording that is somewhat annoying, but could not be edited out.  We will address this and correct by next show.  Sorry for the inconvenience. 

Tucky also talks about being an actress in horror films, her experiences growing up as a lesbian, her thoughts on politics and she corrects the guys numerous times in terms of social etiquette. Hass recommends a Dean Koontz book and reviews The Brick, by Torano Cigars.  Hass also discusses his first NFL game viewing since 2017 after ending his boycott due to the collusion against Colin Kaepernick.

A Melody in Your Mouth

VFU smashes pop culture and politics together again with Gerald from Pop Culture Cosmos, our first ever guest returns to the show to discuss Joe Biden and Donald Trump both going senile, why Biden seems to be falling behind, can he remember Obama's name on demand and what exactly Trump thinks a category 5 hurricane is... he's heard of not hearing of it.  Gerald then breaks down all the latest pop culture goodness including Sony confirming the door is shut on spiderman and the MCU and some video game news and NFL opening game talk (Bears vs Packers).  Last, Hass reviews some bargain basement cigars on the Humidor.  The guys also let you know if they will go see the new Warner Bros film, "It 2."  A Juxtaposition of politics and pop culture.

Deb Sheppard: Well Above Boiling

This week Hass, TJ and Dutch are joined by Psychic Medium Deb Sheppard. During this fascinating conversation, we talk politics, Andrew Luck's sudden and unexpected retirement, Dutch sounds off on Sony and Disney splitting over Spider-Man, and we chat about the hilarious new Dave Chappelle Netflix special.  Deb gives her perspective as a member of the LGBT community on Chappelle's comedy style and some of the criticisms that he both garners and avoids, and she shares the story of Molly Bloom and former Spidey Tobey Maguire.  Last, we discuss whether the dystopian future portrayed on the Hulu series The Handmaid's Tale is at all realistic and how it reflects the issues of women's rights we grapple with today.

According to her website, Deb Sheppard is world renowned psychic medium, teacher and author of the best-selling book “Grieving to Believing - Discovering the Afterlife”.  Her sold-out live group reading events, sold-out small group events, television and radio appearances, and popular private readings have allowed her to bring healing and hope to a global audience of fans and followers from all around the world.  She uncovers some very personal details about the hosts loved ones during the conversation that BLOW our MINDS and reveals an equally mind-blowing transgression of her first husbands infidelity... spoiler alert, he was not sleeping with people.

In the Hass' Humidor segment, Big Hass reviews a CAO Flathead 660 and pairs it with the hard to find Crown Royal Peach.

Kathy Zhu & a Hodgepodge of Synergy

Kathy Zhu is the new darling of the right!  As usual another B lister looking to become an A lister by using identity politics and tying that into their conservative belief system.  Will she become the next Candace Owens?  In other news the gang is joined by Tony "The Jock" from Jock and Nerd podcast to talk about how Amazon's The Boys juxtaposes with some of today's political and social issues including how power corrupts, is protected and how society in turn is both dependent on and influences the actions of the powerful.

Also the guys talk about the death of former Bear Cedric Benson in a motorcycle accident, How terrible is the Netflix series "Another Life"? BH90210 is back, does anyone care? Mario Lopez apologizes for some comments, and the VFU team takes a surprising stance on transgender traits in the very young, and Jay Z celebrates the 3 year anniversary of the first Colin Kaepernick protest by saying "we're past kneeling" - how does the gang react? We even get into the new common core math and why schools are beginning to try new ideas like Transitional Kindergarten. 

Last but not least Hass reviews an Acid Toast infused cigar and pairs it with an old classic, 50/50 soda. (https://www.famous-smoke.com/acid-toast-cigars/item-34974)

Terrence K. Williams, a Great Space Coaster

Dutch and Hass discuss racism and bias on the podcast where politics and pop culture collide! This week we talk, and disagree, about whether Michael Brown and Travon Martin should be talked about in the same breath as Philando Castille, Eric Garner, Sandra Bland and others. Dutch has a conversation with a most likely racist woman at a bar, while Hass defends a white woman on Facebook. 

In the news, a man body-slams a young boy for not removing his hat during the National Anthem, then says Trump told him to do it and thousands are stranded in the Hong Kong airport.  On the lighter side of things, the duo talk about some of the advantages and dangers of Ketogenic diets, on the request of a listener, we read some reviews from listeners, including one telling VFU they are useless, discuss our ongoing suspension from Twitter, and talk about our favorite Saturday morning cartoons.  On the Humidor, Hass reviews a Hoyo de Monterrey no 1 Maduro Presidente cigar and pairs it with an unlikely food... Red Vines!  Last, we play a clip from Ben Shapiro and play a new game, "Hold your Horses", which lampoons comedian Terrence K Williams, who appears via recording to tell us about the Clinton crime family and Jeffrey Epstein.  Join in the racism and bias discussion with America's favorite politically moderate conversational podcast!

BONUS: Screw Dana Loesch

The podcast where politics and pop culture collide!! This week Dutch sounds off on Trump staging photo opps in the midst of tragedy and not paying his bills, since he owes over a half million dollars to the city of El Paso, ICE raids six food processing plants in Mississippi, yet nobody wants to talk about the tax evading business owners.  We also give Kudos to the gym owner who took in the separated children. Next, we discuss Dana Loesch and her cronies leading a campaign to successfully silence our Twitter account, so screw you Dana Loesch, you POS.  Tune in for the details.  The meat of the show is the culmination of our chat with Will Chambers of EPSN Dallas, an anti-Trump Conservative, who is now supporting John Delaney for POTUS.  Listen in to hear politics and pop culture collide and have a head on explosion resulting in mass casualties to ears everywhere.  We are a gnarly spirited, supa dope and often mind numbing juxtaposition of politics and pop culture comin' straight from the underground to your earballs!

Caught in the Middle

Dutch is joined by fellow centrist Cole Johnson, the host from Cole Sportz podcast and Revelations podcast.  The duo go deep into political independence and centrism, being moderate and open to opinions from both sides of the aisle while being attacked by both sides, and talk about hypocrisy and tribalism that takes place in today's political climate.  Cole, who has authored a book on divorce, opens up about his views on not only the topic of marriage and divorce, but also on the Bible, how the word of God is or is not used hypocritically by the religious right wing, whether the Bible is literal, whether divorce is actually allowed and the pair juxtapose these ideas with modern thought in America.  We also talk fun topics such as should Halloween be moved to the weekend, how much whiter will Sammy Sosa get, how much darker will Ariana Grande get, and does one's political affiliation of social views have any bearing on whether or not an athlete is enshrined into the Hall of Fame, in light of the current smear campaign taking place with Mariano Rivera.
