The Dork Forest

Dork on Dork Dialog with Jackie Kashian. I am interested in whatever dorky thing you want to talk about.

Kevin Seccia (@kevinseccia and www.kevinseccia.com) is a writer that loves to watch some Boxing, MMA and has spent some time thinking about who could beat up who. His blog www.howtobeatupanything.com is currently a great book - Punching Tom Hanks  - check that out http://preview.tinyurl.com/PunchingTomHanks It's good stuff. Enjoy. 

Audible is sponsoring this episode of TDF. You know how you can get that deal - a free month and one free book if you join Audible from any number of sites? Well, it's true HERE now. SO. If you've been thinking about joining Audible go here www.audiblepodcast.com/dorkforest and do it NOW. I have an audible account. It's how I listened to all of Sarah Vowell's books. Cuz they're funny but VERY smarty magoo. So, hearing the facts, told by her with timing was even better than reading it.

www.allthingscomedy.com is the podcast network TDF is with and they have a lot of great podcasts and things happening over there. Check them OUT.

Because there's a sponsor doesn't mean that you can't DONATE ... I'm working over here. www.dorkforest.com and www.jackiekashian.com have everything going on. Donation button, Merch page links, Calendar for LIVE TDF (this weekend in San Fran) and standup shows. There's also an Amazon Banner that you can use as a portal to Amazon and I get a kickback. Think about it.

The World Champ Judah Friedlander (@JudahWorldChamp) www.judahfriedlander.com is a great comic, wonderful actor, decent human and loves him some Ping Pong. We talk it out. I learn things and then forget them almost immediately. The phone bonus reflects that. But it's so great. And it was LIVE at the Fontanas for the @NYCPodFest. So great

It's January, so now' the time to start thinking about donating to The Dork Forest. I do the shows. Sometimes they're live. I buy mics and cords and travel and it's a lot of time... you should donate if you can. If you can't... talk it up to others. Pimp this dorky goodness. www.dorkforest.com and www.jackiekashian.com both have donation buttons. There's also an Amazon banner at www.jackiekashian.com to order from them and I get a kickback. You can order TDF shirts and CD's there as well as check my standup schedule.

www.allthingscomedy.com is the podcast network and comedy building empire that TDF is a part of .. check it out over there for more fun pods and vids and comedy.

Brian Thompson (@Amsci) of the podcast QUIT IT http://amateurscientist.org/ is a comedy writer (Feb 19 UCB-LA) and a self-admitted, literary nerd. We are gathered to speak fo Kurt Vonnegut, and we do, we dork out hardcore on books for the hour. I do weed off and sypathize with the witch in Tangled.  Brian goes with it and makes it all so fascinating. It's a good one. Enjoy.

Feel free to DONATE again to the show. My dream is that, if you can, donate $100 over the course of the year. That's $8 a month. It just gives me cash to pay for the extraneous cost of doing the show and it REALLY makes me feel like you value the show and find it worthwile. So there's that.

If you want to order TDF merch (T-shirts, CDs, Hoodies) do it where my standup schedule and links to all things are found, www.jackiekashian.com. There is also an AMAZON banner (white) on the front page that, if you go to amazon through that portal, order your stuff, I get a kickback. No additional cost to you. Very supportive.

www.allthingscomedy.com is the podcast network that I'm with and there's a lot of grea pods over there if you're looking for more goodness.

Corey Olsen (@TolkienProf) teaches in the English Department at Washington College (in Maryland). He has a podcast as The Tolkien Professor https://itunes.apple.com/podcast/the-tolkien-professor/id320513707?mt=2 and we talk about The Hobbit movies v the books. You'll want it to go longer. Me too. We'll do it again. 

Happy NEW YEAR! Feel free to donate to The Dork Forest at www.jackiekashian.com or www.dorkforest.com. Order merch from my standup website, check my standup dates and feel free to order from Amazon through the banner there as well. I get a kickback.

I know that the intro and ads are still from December... so, sure, STILL go to www.geekiana.com and buy geeky cool stuff. For it IS really great. Go ahead and don't donate this week to TDF, donate to the food bank of your choice instead. Turns out people are still hungry and http://feedingamerica.org/foodbank-results.aspx will still help you find your local foodbank.
