This week, Liam McEneaney talks to W. Kamau Bell, host of FX' Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, about how Chris Rock is his "foul-mouthed Yoda," about his Laughter Against the Machine tour and movie, and about how his mom is not allowed to parent him through Facebook.
Also, Bob Powers returns with a piece titled "When Siri Gossips About Us," and we spend another moment with Stacey Nightmare.
And Liam tells us the story of what it means to meet an idol.

In this week's issue, Liam McEneaney interviews singer/songwriter Mike Doughty (ex Soul Coughing, The Book of Drugs, The Flip is Another Honey) about vacationing in Southeast Asia and what it means to "be the only white man in the movie," getting his start in the avant-jazz scene of the Knitting Factory in the '90s, and how Beavis & Butthead were the only critics who got it right.
Mike also sings a couple of songs, one that he cowrote with an unlikely trio and one that was commissioned for the Twilight soundtrack.
All this and Liam describes his day working as a carnie.
Theme song by A Brief View of the Hudson.

In addition, Bob Powers tells the story of an ill-fated lake cabin guest book and we spend a moment with Stacey Nightmare. Plus, Liam talks about meeting a couple of born-again Christian gypsies, and how their attempt to convert him made him consider his stance on gay marriage.
