Accidental Ecstatic Hypoventilation – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
Breath-work is cheaper than drugs and the effects of happiness linger on and reverberate through your life long after the high is gone. You might ask, “Why aren’t we all doing it?” Well, exactly!
Rene Coman, the super-smart bass player from legendary NOLA band The Iguanas, has been fighting loneliness his whole life, practically from the moment he was born. Then, after years in the wilderness, hanging out with cigarette-smoking 60 year-olds, a successful music career, getting married and raising kids, Rene finally discovered a cure for loneliness: podcasts! Now he’s the co-host of his very own podcast, the highly entertaining, curmudgeonly Troubled Men Podcast.
Owen Legendre is one of the funniest people in New Orleans. And on the internet in general, actually. He’s half of the comedy duo, Bare Handed Bear Handlers (yes, he explains where the name comes from) who are responsible for making some outrageoulsy funny stuff like Pensacola Prophet: The Legend of Pecan Pinwheelie. On today’s show Owen sings a couple of songs, one about old people (“all my friends are dead”) called Platinum Plated Walker, and a brand new country ballad making it’s world premier, about Owen’s Aunt Mille the drug smuggler and her unsuspecting (or is he?) husband, Uncle Willie.
This is the first happy Hour of 2019. We’re off to a roaring start.
