  • (Ep 28) Noah Saunders

    Kelly is joined by writer and comedian Noah Saunders. Noah reflects on his time in Korea, and what he's got planned for back in the USA. He talks about when he had a rare disease called scrofula, and how Medieval disease are making a comeback in America. We also talk about bi-polar disorder and a little bit of what it is like to live with. We have a very interesting conversation about both those subjects, however, we also have plenty of stupid conversation as well. For example, Noah tells us about the time when he was a kid and he kissed Bridget Vanderhorn, the most popular girl in the seventh grade. And I tell a fun story about how my older brother bounced a golfball off a little kid's head a waterpark. Great times! If you enjoy the show, please take a moment to leave a comment and review on iTunes - or tell a friend about it. That'd be nice.

  • (Ep 27) Sean O'Gorman

    Kelly is joined by spoken word artist, Sean O'Gorman. Sean talks about and shares his work, as well as shotguns beers and tells memories of regret. We talk about how the olympics are NBD, tell funny stories about being teachers and share our favorite poems by Shel Silverstein. Sean also tells a story about when he had to clean up a bunch of hobo pee. What a swell time! If you enjoy the podcast, GREAT! How can you help? Tell someone - I think that would be the best thing. If you have a friend that you think might enjoy the show, suggest it. Then we'll make a fan group and we'll call ourselves 'Nothing's Really Realers' and we'll all get matching tattoos. Wakanda Forever!

  • (Ep 26) Mike Ventola and Tim Paugh

    Kelly is joined by Mike & Tim to talk about their new band, Tooth Núñez. Mike gets completely naked and talks about erectile disfunction. Tim says something that makes Kelly upset, they talk it out and make up. The boys play a new song, live on the podcast, and all in all, it's a pretty swell time. If you enjoy the show, please leave a rating on iTunes.

  • Best of 2017

    It's the best moments from 2017. John Durso joins Kelly as they review their favorite things that happened on the podcast last year. It's a lot of fun, and a good jump off point for first time listeners. Enjoy!

  • (Ep 24) Pat Sanders And Jenni Payne Of BETA

    Oh, hi folks. Happy New Year! It was the day after Christmas, and Kelvin was joined by Jenni Payne and Patrick Sanders, to talk about the newest play being presented by Busan English Theatre Association. Almost an Evening, a collection of plays written by Ethan Coen. Jenni is an actor in the production and Patrick is the director. We also have fun talking about things that will or won't be cool in 2018, being bullied, memories of regret, being punched in the eye and going blind for 3 months, our favorite spoilers from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, basketball buzzer sounds - and a whole lot more. Very fun stuff.

It's an entertaining evening - and hey, I hope you like it.

  • (Ep 22) What's Up, 2017. (Solo)

    This is a solo show to sort of explain where the podcast is at, and what's coming up for the rest of the year (2017). We've got a live show coming up on November 4th, Saturday, at 6PM at HQ Bar in Gwangan. I explain what we'll be doing with that show, and what I hope from the audience in terms of participation. I also talk a little about the year, and reflect on the first year of podcast - then I talk about the future a little bit. At the end of all that - I tell a solo memory of regret. Hey, I'm giving the solo show a shot and - lemme know if this is something you can handle or if it's just awful. Get at me! Thanks for your support over the year, see you at the live show, and see you next year. Tell you friends and hey - review the show on iTunes - give me a hot high five star review. I'd really appreciate it!

  • (Ep 20) Part Time Cooks

    It's a big one. Part Time Cooks, Black Moss and Saul Goode come to the podcast to tell stories, share music, tell jokes, and rap live. Part Time Cooks are a rap duo based out of Seoul, South Korea. They have been together since 2014, and are preparing for the future in a lot of ways. Recently, joining the Vismajor crew, recording new music and celebrating fatherhood - we talk about it all. The boys share a song from the last album, 7:30, and they also share a never before heard, unreleased track, for their hardcore fans that have heard everything. They tell triumphant stories from their lives, and also memories of regret. They also determine through a process of elimination, what Part Time Cook's favorite rap album of all time is. I'm telling you folks, there are moments of this podcast that get really real.

  • (Ep 19) John Bocskay w/ Sam Hazelton

    Kelvin is joined by John Bocskay, author of the recently released book, Culture Shock: Korea. John talks about writing the book, what culture shock is, and why he is qualified to write about Korean culture to an audience of ex-pats and foreign travelers. Comedian, Sam Hazelton, is also a return guest and friend to the show. He joins to deepen his relationship with the listener and share his jokes and stories. We talk about times we've experienced culture shock, compare American to Korean police, Donald Trump and North Korea, memories of regret and moments of triumph, and John tells the most disgusting story he's ever heard. Sam also plays a game where he has us identify bird names and it proves to be a lot funnier than it sounds, guaranteed to be heard again on the greatest hits compilation.
