This conversation is extremely personal and touching and we hope you enjoy!
First episode of 2017! Tim talks about detoxing and vinyl records during the intro. This week's guest is James 'Louie' Humphries. A discussion about Louie's recent graduation from Law School leads to topics like criminal justice reform, RICO laws, stop & frisk laws, the ACLU, the Constitution, criminal defense and his work with clemency petitions. Other topics include Louie's time working at Disney World, how he met his wife, fertility issues & in vitro fertilization, religion, music, family, sinkholes, wrestling singlets, how he got his nickname and much more. Tim's favorite quote of Louie's from the episode: “If someone is driving you crazy, take the keys away.” A very entertaining, thoughtful and engaging conversation between two friends. Enjoy!
Last episode of 2016! Tim talks about the holidays, New Year's Eve plans, and this week's episode with Maddison Mutschler. When Tim was asked to provide some insight for this conversation, this is what he had to say: “Madde's episode is a great representation of what I wanted this show to be. It's completely full of great stories and laughs while also including one of the most heart-wrenching, deep and emotional conversations I've had with a guest so far. I can only hope it encourages more people to speak out as there just isn't enough dialogue in this country regarding struggles that so many of us share.” Topics range from religion and Madde's idea of heaven (includes nachos & Christian Bale), first dates/first kisses, societal pressures, anxiety, creating & appreciating art, family, dreams, getting arrested, depression, refusing to operate a vehicle ever again, how crazy rumors of one's sexual orientation can affect life in high school, and much more. Enjoy, everyone! Have a very happy and safe transition from 2016 to 2017!
This week Tim talks about his love of jerky, the Rolling Stones, the holidays and the new Mouth to Mouth w/Tim Spotify Playlist. This week's guest is independent musician/singer/songwriter Ryan M.

Tim talks about Thanksgiving, pays tribute to the late Sharon Jones and introduces this week's guest, Chad Kennedy. The two of them sit down in Chad's living room with a two-person/1 cat audience in attendance. The first half of the conversation is dedicated to Chad's time in the United States Army. Topics include: boot camp, military food, tours in South Korea and Somalia, getting shot at, seeing an enemy up close, torture, stealing a Humvee to get beer, and much much more. Chad even details one of the raids he went on! The second half of the conversation gets even more personal than we could have imagined. Topics include: paranormal experiences, what the term “bull” means in the swinger lifestyle, addiction, psychedelics, family, religion, government, sexual experiences, eating certain meats in Korea which are frowned upon here in the States, and more! Chad holds nothing back and Tim just tries to keep up. We really hope you enjoy this one as it's not often you get to hear blunt and honest stories about most of these topics. Tim hung out with Chad later that night while celebrating a mutual friend's birthday and he told us that Chad was so relaxed and happy after doing the interview. He was telling everyone about it. Let's hope he still likes it now that it's out! Enjoy! Photo Credit: Ted Wilson III
