I think I can smell Mr. Rosenberg literally pulling his head from the tire spokes. It's been a while and his neck his sore, we'll give him a sec, or until Sept. 30th or so. We cover a listener letter explaining the hypocrisy of an emergency ban on Kratom. As a safe alternative for Veterans natural plant based "drugs" can be used wisely or they can be used like the DEA consultants do their jobs. Oh ya and the Air Force base is burning, the air quality sucks but the content is still great. Welcome back to Sick Call.
Join us this week for an intense encounter with a Navy Vet. My skin is still vibrating and my stomach still turns but I can't wait to have him back. A former Chaplain Assistant shares his experiences from being attached to a Marine Corp Element in Ramadi to overcoming the urge to cut the memories away. It's real, it's raw, it may not be fun. We'll get back to current events soon enough.
The sky is falling and we are subleasing jet packs. This week we are talking dislocated fingers, transsexual truth tellers and virtual reality sex robots. In addition we'll discuss how a terrorist organization releases dogs on children, smashes sacred land and builds stock portfolios. 15 years later it's still all about freedom. Drop out and Tune in.
Mike and I were both away on extended hiatus attending family issues but we're back and there is a ton of idiocy going on in our precious media. We'll argue over the right to sit or stand, if racism exists in such a just world and more importantly, what weed strains are best. We will talk about the socks that seem to be sending San Fran into a tizzy and Native American pipes that only appear in Facebook Newsfeed. This week we're even bringing back b rated movie soundtracks staying the one and only Tupac Shakur. Did you know that literally means get your gun in pashtu? It's true I read it in a meme.
What is it about mixing alcohol with music that makes people act like children? This week we recount some time on a party bus and a beach front reggae concert. As my kids would say, "people watching on FLEEK." We address some important public service announcements this week and cover some stuff our parents should have taught us. Same more incoherent ramblings, same early morning start time, same two fungis, here for you all. I hope every one is having a great week, if you're listening we appreciate every one of you.
What happens when four veterans, some airborne, some ex coppers, some lost, some found all drink a magic brew of fun guys and ancient Chinese Pueh'r. Interesting views as psilocybin speaks of politics, human nature and a future for a corrupt dictatorship. A tummy full of organic veggies, Filet Mignon and tryptamine.
There's some magic in the air and even more in the ground. We're nearing harvest season and we're a week closer to appointing one of the most ridiculous excuses for a leader this country has ever known. As the Internet shares secrets so do we. We're growing like mycelium and stank in' like OG Kush. Somewhere between Bluetooth failures and the origin of religion while dancing in caves there is something for you. Guarantee. Stop with the tricolor garments and useless rhetoric, freedom is between our ears lets tune in, drop out and live free, or whatever Leary said.
Episode 18 or so and things are starting to get real. When it seems as though our nation is entering a stage of de-evolution, we are hear to restore hope. Just kidding we ain't doing nothing of the sort but we are smoking plants and talking story. But it just so happens this week, we are pulling covers and entering a stage of drysnitiching that would make a confidential informant a well paid and free man. A mission to simplify life has led to the undeniable choice to no longer carry other people's secrets. If you're the type that watches Last Survivor stories wearing a light coat of Cleaning Lubricant Protectant while hand cleaning your gun and poaching catchy lines from the Ranger Creed you're going to hate this one. If you plan to vote #nevertrump or #hillary4prison you won't be a fan. If you like Hawaii, you may enjoy it. Any questions or comments firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recorded at 6am on July 7th after watching a killing on YouTube. The news of Alton Sterling is beginning to sweep through Cajun country and the aroma of freshly burned trees is roaming around my outdoor kitchen. It's a freshly ground salad of patriotism, Monday morning quarterbacking and stupid stories. I know it's a huge surprise but I don't really remember what we talked about but I know it was really interesting, check us out on this week's Sick Call podcast. It'll be almost as fun as Pokemon Go!
What's a Forward Observer you ask? TRAV was a forward observer. He'll tell us, he's got a lot to say actually. Starting from a Red Cross telegram he takes us through the oil spills of emotion that await following War. He's the first guy to scoot a cheek and let me have a seat on the bus to Freakville. We discuss what it means to be a parent, blended families, the current state of our political climate and how we can help one another moving forward. I'm honored to have a childhood friend and veteran to this week's SickCall Podcast.
It's 6 am, the Kush salad is strong and our eyes are glossed over. How can they endure such such freedoms, you ask? Is it the sweet sound of bottle rockets or the smell of flower blooms that has their mind dancing? Nope, It's because it's the Fourth of July but it may have been the mushroom tea? This is the Sick Call Podcast. We're back and nothing has changed. It's Independence Day, we're full participants, so you should be too. Take no Lies, BS or horseshit today, lay off the sauce and stick to the green stuff but if you must and you're too drunk don't get highly involved in things like swimming or lighting fireworks from appendages and special orifices. If you find some love, its important to wear a glove but not as important as wearing a smile. Keep your head on swivel and don't drive through cone patterns. Stay Free!
This week the Co-host and producer of the Drunken Taoist Podcast joins us to discuss what it's like being dragged off the islands of paradise and winding up in Ft. Campbell Kentucky. Born of a Vietnam Veteran and his favorite nurse, Mr Rich Evirs is an army brat and like us has a penchant for Veteran right's. He also has notable dislike of corporations who like to grease the wheels of public policy with green mystery paper. We go deep, sometimes we go long, at the end I'm pretty much speechless. Enjoy from just north of the Free Thinking Capital of the World, welcome to this episode of The SickCall Podcast.
Join us this week as Donnie and Mike settle into a early morning 6am podcast and some recollection of a place that smells like armpits. Father's Day is in full effect and our kids actually like us. Better than liking us they aren't frightened and have no reason to hide the potatoes. You'll get it later. Probably from the freedom of a warm bed somewhere. Being in America is awesome especially because we don't have to worry about being blown up randomly by a drone strike! We hope you enjoy this week and many more to come. But if you do enjoy it's probably cause you need SickCall...
As Clinton announced her great victory, Mike and I wonder why there is separations of church and state anyway? Aren't we are required to vote at the local church? Anyway holy mail in ballot who cares right? First world problems today on an early morning Sick Call. It's 6am, the wake and bake is strong and I present bumped and bruised from an encounter on the mean streets of the Santa Ynez Valley. You'll get what I mean. Strap on your bolo ties, brush your chops, and hold your glass piece, we could be thrown for a loop. We're meeting Yoda and talking Sapiens. Episode 89 of the Drunken Taoist Podcast is also up, if you haven't please catch up. One Love and One more week.
Welcome to Chicago, where we don't play, Out of Towners get trapped like e'Ery day. Holy real life, minority report. On this week, we'll take you back. Back to when Donnie used to drink way too much. Today he gets the black hand shake from the Fire Service and makes a return trip to a Black Rock in the middle of the ocean. It's D-Day. Muhammad Ali just passed. Michael Bisbing is the new champ and Dan Henderson knocked out that Conan looking Cuban man. Talk about shaking things up. Join Us on Sick Call.
Oh how we love to talk about war, but the real war is sometimes figuring how to clean a dirty bum in a moving vehicle with a bag of wet ones. Is it better to love than to be a fascist dictator over our little minions? This week Mike and I will discuss an educated approach towards raising kids. We discuss what really matters and build sand castles. Episode 8; an ode to Parenting.
I'm super excited about this week's episode. But apparently not as excited as the lipstick applicator emerging in red from son's chihuahuas pelvic region. If he would ever stop rubbing it on the clear glass window across from my workstation, I would be able to recount our venture to mushroom village, the differences between cacti and mushrooms, and most certainly I would remember the delicate details of the Japanese art of woodworking. It may be traumatic brain injury, it may a blue dreamy start, either way it was fun and I think we actually learned a bit too. Come one, come all, Sick Call's open for business and bad words.
On this week's SICK CALL we're smuggling illegal non pasteurized milk and laughing off solicitations for charitable donations. Eventually we discuss a story of a man and his seal, fresh out of water and home in a Texas culture shock, they're past the honeymoon stage and they're blaming one another. Its a hoot. We'll laugh together, and we'll watch democracy crumble before our eyes as the slot machines steal. I Love Vegas, all things Lone Survivor and shameless Roberta Lange. Join us.There will be fungus. And Mike blasts his mom's goat.
This week Mike and I try to understand what the hell happened to American Politics. How is it, that of 350 million people we have these "Dinner for Shmucks" worthy candidates? Is this really the best we got? There are some low points, there are some high points but it's all stoner logic so prepare yourself to be taken on a trip from within the clubhouse of an Outlaw Motorcycle Gang to the Impeachment Wing for past presidents of the BIG white house on Pennsylvania Ave. If you're into to hearing how Bernie Sanders is going to change the world and how we should wait for the policy counsel to help us, this ain't your podcast.
Special Guest code name "Charlie" reminisces his time growing upwith yours truly. Join Mike and I as we interview my dear friend and enlistment buddy in this week's Sick Call. It will be an introduction in veteran benefits and entitlements, a conduit for mockery and a story of redemption. We'll drive the Sour Diesel train and savor some Orange Cookies in this weeks journey from a continuation high school to the halls of higher education and combat jump wings.

Join Mike and I as we talk about the recent loss of a great American Hero and no we aren't talking about Prince, although according to me, he is one bad motherfucka'. Nobody Struts like Prince. High Heels plus electric guitars and third eyes get me every time. Our first fan writes in and we discuss what to do when your spouse thinks you are becoming a stoner. I remember the time I crashed landed on a Island in a commercial jet and recall what it's like to be a brown guy at a Lynyrd Skynrd concert. Boom Hit Subscribe!

In this little bonus episode Mike and Donnie go really deep into cannabis talk. We might have been slightly overmedicated during the recording of this podcast.
Donnie and I discuss organic gardening and raising chickens. And as usual a haze of weed smoke leads us down the conspiracy rabbit holes and has Donnie ranting at Congressional Medal of Honor Winner Dakota Meyer about the effectiveness of corporal punishment.
With is our first guest, Mike and I are honored to have one of our favorite Jiu-Jitsu instructors on the planet, John Marine from Paragon Jiu-Jitsu. He puts the fun back in Fungi. We'll discuss how Jiu-Jitsu has helped us as returning Vets, and just how much fun we had at the Arlington Theater last weekend in beautiful Santa Barbara listening to Tony Hinchcliffe, Joey Diaz and the Powerful Joe Rogan.
Take a little trip with Mike and I to the Jungles of Peru, as I share my first experience with Ayahuasca. In this Episode we discuss the idea of a global society, what would happen if the aliens came and well, just check it out. BIG SHOT OUT to LEE SYATT for helping us get this train on the tracks.
