Dudes of Future/Past

Never has a podcast had more fun analyzing the likes and differences of Millennials and Generation X. Comedians Kurt Long and Joey Bragg build bridges between generations using laughter, wit, understanding and nonsense. Joey's youthful exuberance, humor and determination are a great contrast to the more experienced Kurt's cautious skepticism and sarcasm. Together they dissect topics of the day from the perspectives of two entertainment industry professionals separated by 20+ years while providing plenty of laughs and insight. Neither claim to be experts or take themselves too seriously, so their conversations are always hilarious, cutting, and unique.

As our sociological podcast experiment pitting Millennials versus Generation X continues, we dip into how a Millennial gets made! The millennial in question is none-other then our very own Co-host, Joey Bragg! And our special Guests are his parents, Melanie & Ken. They are here to answer all the important questions, like - "How did you meet and fall in love?", "What was Joey like as a young kid?", and "When did you know he was going to be America's Sweetheart?" It's a super fun show with a lot of laughs, singing Frasier's theme song, and discussing all the uncomfortable topics related to family, fame, sex and relationships. 

We are also #BLESSED to have the beautiful and talented Audrey Whitby on the show to help ease Joey's nerves related to having his relations on the show. 

Please let us know how we are doing:

If you're a fan of quality cinema, baseball or "The Walking Dead", you've witnessed the magic of Lew Temple. A chameleon of an actor, Lew got his start in the "Business" only after a brief stint in major league baseball. Now, Mr. Temple is set for big-time stardom on the screen with a starring turn as super "creep" Terry in the Relativity pictures "Kidnap", alongside Halle Berry. Hear Lew discuss the process of going dark as a man who swipes children for parts. Lew and the boys also talk on-set manners, where the business is heading and surviving Leukemia. It's a mega-episode of Lew!

Join the party as we feature a star-studded celebration of Joey's 21st birthday features some of our great friends dropping by to raise a glass to the now-legal-drinking-age cohost! So Joey and Kurt quickly get "Merry" as the show goes along. It's our most outrageous, funny and sometimes emotional shows ever! We have a Liv & Maddie Reunion featuring Kali Rocha, Tenzing Trainor, Jessica Marie Garcia, Victoria Moroles, Jimmy Bellinger, Shelby Wulfert, Shak Gacha and Lucas Adams, along with Audrey & Maddy Whitby and so many more.

Jul 24, 2017

Celebrating a full year of podcasting, the Dudes are happy to welcome former "Liv & Maddie" co-star and current friend, Shelby Wulfert @shelbywulfert . Shelby not only brings her delightful demeanor but also a lesson in Veganism. We discuss our carnivorous ways and if we could ever go "no meat". We dine on an all-vegan lunch and discuss it's merits. Will the boys be pulled to the Vegan side? Listen and find out.

Plus, right at the top, we get a special guest appearance from Joey's Mom, who called right as we were beginning to record. We think Mom might have to make a regular call-in to the show! Let us know if you feel the same: dudes@dudesoffuturepast.com

or @dofpcast on twitter and instagram.

 

And yes, there's a tiny bit of Audio Theater but, well, see what Shelby does to it...

Joey is seeing the last few days of 20 fly by as we discuss the upcoming 21st Birthday and what it all means. Will Joey go on a drinking/gambling binge? Does he have any special plans for his first "legal ID" booze purchase? Or is it just a number? And can Kurt even remember his 20's? We discuss this big life moment and encourage all of you to peruse Joey's Amazon wishlist for his birthday on the 20th of July.

Plus we take a long look at Gender Fluidity! Did Vogue magazine screw up with it's article claiming Zane and Gigi are practically fluid because they share clothes? Twitter seems to think so. Or is it better to just get the conversation out there, even if it is a little overblown?

We discuss bathroom issues for the Gender issues that weren't around in Kurt's youth. Will future generations even care about gender? And how can we all learn to accept each other?  Yeah, we get a little deep!

Of course, we have some hilarious Audio Theater for you!

Hit us up on email, we love hearing from you:

It's Bastille day and the birthday of theme song writer/producer, former guest, Michelle Lewis! Michelle and her husband, Dan, were kind enough to visit us in the 'Coop' on a record day, in order to get a feel for the show in order to write our theme song. We convinced them to be guests on the show and it's probably one of our best ideas yet. Michelle and Dan were delightful, funny and so interesting. So we thought it'd be a fun way to celebrate her efforts to go back and insert the theme song she worked so hard on, into the show she appeared on. Joey's audio is a little low at the top but it gets better throughout. (we were such a young podcast back then, so audio issues happened). Enjoy!

And please don't forget to spread the word about the podcast. Tell friends, share links, rate and review on Itunes! 

Look for a brand new show on Monday where we discuss Joey turning 21. Send him Birthday Love (7/20 is the date) on twitter and instagram @joeybragg

We did it! We made it to the BIG 5-0! So thankful to you for downloading, subscribing, writing positive reviews and trashing @TomHanks on twitter in our behalf! Couldn't do the show without you, fair listener! And to reward you for your patronage, we present one of our best shows yet! A 50 Ep-stravaganza, if you will. Won't you?

Today's show is all about (mostly) Spider-man! We review the latest, "Spider-man: Homecoming", (Spoiler Alert) give out our "Acting MVP's", and rate the entire Spider-man movie canon. (Well, not the super-old made-for-TV one) Who is our favorite webslinger; Tobey, Andrew or Tom? Listen and find out!

Plus we bring a bag full of "Audio Theater" and welcome our secret producer, Curtis Marlborough, along with special guests, "Mark Wahlberg" and "Sly Stallone". It get's crazy. 

Thank you for listening and spreading the word about the show and write to @LAPodfest about having us there!

Have a great week!

Say it ain't so, Drake and JO - SH. Drake and Josh seem to be "no more" as Josh leaves Drake off his wedding guest list and for some reason, we talk about that and even do an "audio theater" about it. Plus we pitch "Reverse Truman Show", and explore Joey's painful past with the song "Sweet Home Alabama". Is Kurt a bad father if he DOESN'T get his son a phone? Will watching "Mike Phelps race a shark" be a thing? And the downfall of Austin Jones! All this and more, on another quality episode of "Dudes of Future/Past"!

Still no Joey. Typical Millennial - Too busy working 14 hour days on a film all the way across the country to get a podcast together! Luckily, Kurt has a lot to say about recent events and a great friend to say it with! That friend is none other then Brad MacDonald. You've seen him in dozens of Progressive commercials, heard him in Japanese anime voice work and maybe you've perused his social media @bradleybumper. Now you get to hear him discuss 'Music' with Kurt. They delve into the recent tragedy in Manchester, England, the loss of the great Chris Cornell and the elation of sharing their experiences at U2's two shows at Pasadena's Rose Bowl. We explore mental illness, music as a connective tissue for people of various backgrounds and there's even a little "Audio Theater" sprinkled in there.

Soon we hope to have Joey and Kurt back together, (Lord knows we have a lot to discuss), but for now, please enjoy our ramblings here and let us know how you are:

While Joey's away in Boston, Kurt shall Play and record a mini podcast for your listening pleasure. Kurt explains the lack of podcasts recently due to Joey's absence. Plus, he talks about his hometown of Boston and the recent ugly news coming from Fenway park. Keeping with the Boston theme, Kurt discusses the reinvention of Mark Wahlberg. Enjoy.

Thanks as always to our theme song writers/producers, Michelle Lewis and Dan Petty.

Also want to thank Chris Holmes for the long-term microphone rental as well as graphic designer, Dave Cogan for all his work with our logos and such.

So proud of our new theme song, we couldn't wait to share it with our fans, and even our enemies. Thanks again to Michelle Lewis, @mlewey and Dan Petty for this wonderful theme! We delved into our archives and did some editing so our guests could get the proper production value they deserve. And in honor of Bert Kreischer's recent appearance on Comedy Central's "Comedy Jam", (singing "Take Me Higher" with Scott Stapp of Creed), we thought we'd reissue this great episode. We have an honest, hilarious, engaging conversation with Bert that we know you'll love. So if you've heard it before, you still get to hear our brand new song, and if you haven't, you get a full on quality podcast for your enjoyment. Tell your friends to subscribe and download!

So excited about our brand new theme song, (Many thanks again to Michelle Lewis & Dan Petty), we couldn't wait to share it with all of you! We went back into the archives and inserted it into some of our guest shows so we could sound like a professional podcast! Thought it was the least we could do to give our guests the respect they deserve. And they get more publicity! (So please follow @JimmyPardo on twitter, download his podcast 'Never Not Funny' and tell him we sent you)

Plus, it's a great way to get more downloads!

If you've already heard the interview, at least you get to hear the new podcast. If you haven't, all the better! Welcome to the Dudes of Future/Past podcast family!

We love all of the guests that have come by the chicken coop to chat with us. So many diverse folks with amazing outlooks on life, have sprinkled their magic on us and we are so grateful. It's a task and a half to coordinate just Kurt and Joey's schedules, but to also pick a perfect time to accommodate our guests is extremely tough sometimes. This is one of those times. Sadly, Joey was too busy working in films and stuff to be around on the day we could snare Jordan Brady for the show, so, sadly, it's only half of the Dudes for this interview. But the good news is, Jordan was such a treat to talk to and we know you're going to love listening to all his stories about directing the I Am Comic documentaries, (There are three of them now!), Directing commercials, Going to Coachella with his son, bombing auditions as an actor and teaching others how to be top-notch commercial directors. There are a lot of laughs, wisdom and heart in this podcast to make up for the lack of Joey-ness. So listen and enjoy.

Please go see Jordan's latest film: I AM BATTLE COMIC -

Pre Orders are available now on his website: JORDANBRADY.COM

Sometimes in this busy world of ours, things fall through the cracks. Schedules get jumbled up. People fail to connect. Papers get shredded. A Press Secretary forgets major details about the holocaust. And, sadly, podcasts get delayed. Due to some fortunate events, (Joey booking some film work), we weren't able to produce a regularly scheduled podcast for you all. But we squeezed in some time to chat, laugh and catch up and put out this very funny episode for your enjoyment. It's chock full of Audio Theater, memories of past loves and a quiz about words. It's more fun than it sounds after typing it.... We are so grateful that you found us, downloaded us, and if you've done so, rated us on Itunes. If you haven't, please go to Itunes podcast section and give us a 5 star review. It takes seconds and really helps us out.

Be on the lookout for more great content soon, including interviews, and a Youtube video of us recording our new theme song!

We are a few weeks into the release of Jordan Peele's magnificent "Get Out" in theaters, and as it continues to break records, we dig deep into what it means for race as it pertains to film and society in general. Coming from two white guys, far apart in age, we try to wrap our heads around why racism is still such a problem in the world. We talk about "Get Out", White privilege, "Ghost in a Shell" and the controversy about casting a white female in a role originally written for a Japanese heroine and what it all means. FYI - there are spoilers regarding "Get Out" so if you haven't seen the film, we stop talking about it around the 37 minute mark. Or just go and see the film and then listen. 

As always, thanks for listening, subscribing and rating us on itunes. It really helps.

Friday was a bittersweet day for Joey, Kurt and their guests, Jess Marie Garcia and Shak Ghacha. Proud of the series finale, which aired that day, and all the episodes that preceded it, but sad that the show was finally saying goodbye. The four friends got together and watched the finale with the rest of the West Coast audience and immediately recorded this podcast to share their feelings with you. Lots of reflections on the show's history. Lots of responses from fans' tweets. Hope you all enjoyed Liv and Maddie half as much as we enjoyed bringing it to you. And now, enjoy this podcast. Please hit Itunes with a great review and comments and pass it on to friends.

The beauty of delivering a weekly podcast from the viewpoints of two men 23 years apart in age is that you never know what you're going to get. With differing schedules and responsibilities, it's hard to find the optimum time for comedic content. Most of the time, we get lucky and it just happens. No matter what we plan, though, the podcast always just becomes what it wants to become. This one is fun and short (for us), and a little bit punchy. On a rare week where both Kurt and Joey had a lot of business to take care of, plus Joey's quick trip to visit Audrey on set in Utah, we had little time to get a timely record in. And Joey was tired! Waaah. Millennials! Ugh. But I do applaud Joey for fighting through the exhaustion and producing a fun hour of conversation for your enjoyment. This week we dabble a little on the subject of College. It was supposed to be our reaction to "March Madness". But we veered off and discussed a list of potential regrets for people when they get older. Find out what our life priorities turn out to be. And email us about your regrets or experiences you've had that you would have regretted not having.

Generation X had been referred to as the "slacker" generation, but now they are the bosses in many companies. Millennials, meanwhile, are the coddled generation of "participation trophies" and "orange slices". At least, for now. But Joey wants to break the mold in his stand-up career and stop slacking. He wants to put the hours in. He wants to make the effort. Or just book another TV series. Kurt will take whatever he can get while he contemplates driving for Lyft and selling organs to provide for his family. 

Plus, the gentlemen discuss when it's appropriate to give up on life goals, when will Hollywood say "That's all we need of you, thanks" and should we start a 'Vision Board'. In fact, we want to hear what would be on your vision board! Email us at:

Hey Gang, it's a repeat episode! YAYYYY! well, it is pilot season and Joey and Kurt are having trouble coordinating schedules. SO, despite our best efforts, we are forced to put out an old episode. But boy, it is a GOODIE! We talk for over 2 hours with the wonderful Kali Rocha about everything and anything. We get goofy, we get serious, we get a little crazy. Such a blast talking to her. So if you haven't listened to it, it's new to you! If you have heard it already, re-discover the wonder that is The Dudes of Future/Past

If you've been listening to this podcast for any period of time, you know that one of the many things Joey and Kurt have in common is that they can geek out with the best of 'em. So you can imagine how excited we were to get good friend, talented actor/dancer and grandpa-to-be, Al Coronel in the chicken coop to talk about his experience filming the last Wolverine film, Logan! No spoilers here, but you do get treated to some fun on-set hijinks, and a little audio from Hugh Jackman himself. 

Plus we are treated to the lovely Christiana Leucas in studio as well. This beautiful and talented lady came along with her real-life love interest (Al) and their brand new, 6 week old French Bulldog pup, Maya. (Pictures on DoFPCAST insta) But you'll also want to take a look at the gorgeous Miss Leucas on her instagram page: @christianaleucas

We dive into Al & Christiana's relationship (They are also GenX/Millennial), Al's super transition from Marine to Dancer to Feature Film actor, and his impending grandfatherhood. Plus, we discuss the loss of the great Bill Paxton, whom Al recently had the pleasure of shooting with on "Training Day".  

Follow Al Coronel on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram: @AlCoronel

and go see LOGAN in theaters today!

I'm sure it's been said many times before, so I fought the urge to lead this episode summary with, "We live in stressful times" and instead start with, "We live in differently stressful times". Sure, we don't have to outrun dinosaurs, live with the plague or live without air conditioning, but we do seem to have a lot of other things to worry about nowadays. Paying rent, saving the environment, terrorism, loss of human rights. Oh wait, those have been around for a while. Unstable President with a twitchy twitter trigger? That's new. 

Joey and Kurt, being from different generations have a lot of different daily life stresses and a number of shared concerns as well. How do we cope with all this stress? Find out on an all new DOFPCAST where we talk about money, health, commitments, kids, cats and whether or not we have four more years of Pres-Stress.
