Greg Nibler and Sarah X Dylan's Podcast. Intelligent conversations about ridiculous situations. Based out of Portland, Oregon, both are former Commercial Broadcasters, who decided to break off and do it on their own. They have been sharing their lives and amazing guests, 5 days a week, since 2009.

GUEST: SHANE MAUSS. Kenny B was with us today (although now he prefers to be called Kenneth which isn't going to happen) and we talked about what he's been up to, human-eating cats and the shack man, and Comedian/Educator Shane Mauss joined us to talk about Bridgetown Comedy Festival (tickets/passes here!), his podcast Here We Are, and the insane/fascinating world of psychedelic drugs - it's a trip.
