Hound Tall with Moshe Kasher (general)

Raves and the History of Electronic Music featuring Sunshine Jones of Dubtribe Sound System and comics : Ari Shaffir (This is not Happening), Phoebe Robinson (Two Dope Queens) and Chris Cubas (@midnight) with special guests Drennon Davis and DJ Real. This one is really special. A magical talk about the history of dance music and rave culture along with the origin story of Moshe's name. They trace dance music's disco childhood and ecstasy addled adolescence all the way to it's current dubstep old age. Which Moshe invented. Wait for it, it will make sense later. PLUR to all listeners.

Hound Tall is releasing a bit early this month to ensure that our Black History Month episode comes out during...Black History Month! This is a great, at time challenging conversation but they make just enough stupid jokes to diffuse all racial tension that has ever existed in america and to solve racism altogether! Seriously, it's over! Give to the United Negro College fund! This conversation on blackness is led by Professor Marne Campbell from Layola Marymount Unuversity and comics: David Alan Grier, Ian Edward and Naomi Ekperigen. Listen and learn. All power to the people.

In an example of perfect timing we're talking all about women in political elections. Can Hillary win? Why do we doubt her? Are we all sexist? Are cowboy boots feminine? Professor Meredith Conroy and comedians Jen Kirkman and Cameron Esposito join on a slightly inflammatory journey. It's an amazing talk.

The episode ends not with a bang but with a whimper. Or maybe a slur. Not racial but drunken. Basically people are funny as hell but also somewhat drunk on this episode. TehyWe discuss fringe religion and cults. Sort of. It's very funny. See if you can identify which audience member Al almost got into a fight with after the show. Comics this month: Joe Mande, Kurt Braunohler, Al Madrigal, Darcy Michael and our expert: professor Veronique Tomaszewski. They talk aliens, reincarnated Anne Frank and other weird shit.
