The crowd went silent this weekend during a great set in Iowa. I had just said that Hitler and Trump have nothing in common. Was I wrong? Time to hit the books and do some analysis! Many times the crowd is right. Lets find out! whydidnttheylaugh@gmail.com join the patreon.com/wdtl hugepianist.com for UK tour tickets

#140 An American in Canada (featuring Dr Jordan Peterson)

My weekend at yuk yuk's in Vancouver was amazing. Great crowds but definitely a major culture shift. I chatted with my opener Ross Dauk was talented, fun, and outspoken about Canadian socialism. The conversation weaved in and out of free speech so much and I realized how many people don't know some of the issues facing it, especially in Canada, so I supplemented the conversation with clips of Dr Jordan Peterson who has become one of my heroes. People always ask me why I'm so against "PC" culture. It's because it's obvious it is the way people are trying to break a population. I just reread 1984. It can be applied to fascism or socialism. Neither side is "right." But the markers are obvious.

This ep I analyze why a joke DOES work and the implications to a lot of these post modern views on gender that are clearly false. Comedy is feared by tyrants because laughter reveals truth and it can't be censored. Much love to all the new patreon subscribers and our sponsor blue apron. patreon.com/wdtl blueapron.com/OWEN
