Check out the great interview with Tom Barnard and Frank Vascellaro that aired 2/17/15 on WCCO Channel 4 News.
Chris Kluwe of the Minnesota Vikings reached out to Matt Birk of the Baltimore Ravens and to over 20 members of congress to debate the MN Marriage Amendment, (which would make gay marriage in Minnesota unconstitutional). Chris is an outspoken opponent of the amendment. Matt and the 20 others are for the amendment. Nobody took Chris up on the offer, so he debated a chair at the Brave New Workship in Minneapolis. Chris was asked to challenge Matt Birk and the others by the Tom Barnard Podcast. Tom Barnard, (a local radio legend, #1 for 27 years in Minneapolis, MN) moderated the debate. www.tombarnardpodcast.com to hear other great guests. @radiotombarnard to tweet Tom and @ChrisWarcraft to tweet Chris Kluwe.
Tom, Kathryn, Tony, Alex, Andy and Sean chat about…too many things to mention here. You’ll hear some family stories, a few current events, and some things that you simply won’t understand. Godspeed!
EXPLICIT! Just imagine Lenny Bruce as a woman. Paula is very candid and really gives Tom a hard time in this episode. Paula’s performances are dark. Her voice and delivery are undeniably strong and crass, not your average female or comic. It’s the unexpected truths along with her delivery that are hilarious!
Paul Mecurio originally started his career as a lawyer but soon found that stand-up comedy was his true calling. He started out writing jokes for “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” then soon became part of the original writing team for “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”, for which he has won Emmies and a Peabody Award.
