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.

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

and you can hit him up on facebook and Twitter: @DirJordanBrady

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.

A 'mega' storm hit Los Angeles creating a river outside the studio we call "The Chicken Coop". But did that stop Joey and Kurt in their pursuit of bringing you free, weekly entertainment and silliness? Heck no! We are here to meander, laugh, pick Oscars, and discuss the McDonald's menu that differs greatly from when Kurt was a youth. Plus, we are chock-full of "Audio-Theater" for you all. Hope you enjoy this hour plus of flood-induced anxiety and fun. As always, tell a friend or two about this, your favorite podcast, and subscribe and review on Itunes. It helps!

Joey and Kurt have talked about a lot of subjects over the course of the podcast, but nothing more heavy than this... DEATH! Sadly, Joey lost his grandmother recently and we felt it appropriate to honor her memory with a deep discussion of the fate we all hold. But the original recording was mysteriously ruined somehow. Ironic that a discussion of death could reach a similar fate? Yes! But we persevered in the face of adversity and sorrow and reconvened and brought the delightful Audrey Whitby to bring her perspective to the matter. And yes, though the subject matter is deep, we keep it fun and interesting while still honoring those we lost. Hope you enjoy and can find a little light even in the toughest of times.

Fresh off an amazing Super Bowl, we are here and delivering for your listening pleasure, a repeat! Or you could call it, a "re-issue" if that makes it more palatable. There is a new open to the show on this one which definitely makes it worth the download. Plus, if you are new to our podcast, it's timely subject matter. Football! Interesting to go back and listen to one of Joey and Kurt's earlier shows and see where they started to click as podcasters and see how far they've come since. Enjoy and remember, New shows on the way... Thanks, sincerely,

Jamie Kaler is a determined son of a gun. He once showed up to his neighborhood bar everyday for a month asking for a job until they relented and gave him one. It's that kind of stubborn drive and refusal to be denied that got him to Hollywood, parts on legendary shows like Friends, Will & Grace and his series regular part on TBS' "My Boys". Just under the wire of the Gen X timeline, Jamie regales us with stories about his stint in the Navy, failed pilot tests with Jenna Elfman, and getting alerted about bookings on his "beeper". Plus, fellow New Englanders, Kurt & Jamie, talk Patriots' championships and when will Joey be able to celebrate his Washington Football team in the Super Bowl? We all pick the score of the big game, so listen all the way through.

Check Jamie out on "America: Facts vs. Fiction" on the American History Channel

Our brief national nightmare is over and Future Dude, Joey Bragg is back on the mic to talk about his recent dental woes. After being laid up with giant holes in his gums for over a week, Joey bravely recounts his experience at the dentist getting four wisdom teeth pulled. What's your biggest dental nightmare? Send us your stories Dudes@dudesoffuturepast.com. Plus, we discuss great movies Kurt grew up with that Joey is just familiarizing himself with. Do they hold up? Will millennials appreciate them as much as the Gen Xers did? Plus, a visit from the recently deceased on another epic episode!

People across the country, nay, the WORLD, got together on Saturday, January 21st to remind the U.S. President that they will not be silenced. With Joey out sick this week, I thought it'd be best to have three incredible women who participated in the "Women's March" in Los Angeles come talk about the experience. And now you get to hear it too! And what an amazing idea it was, (If I do say so myself). @AudreyWhitby @JessMarieGarcia & @VictoriaMoroles came by the chicken coop on a rainy Sunday morning, fresh from the historic event to fill me in on what happened, who came, and what's next! The "Future" is Female! Can't thank these ladies enough for gracing the Coop and chatting with me. Enjoy and make sure to follow them all, & us on all social media! And send @JoeyBragg some get-well tweets!

Thanks,

It's a tumultuous time in the Good Ole U.S. of A. and we could really use a great leader/activist like Martin Luther King Jr. So on the day set aside for celebrating the man, we felt it appropriate to discuss him, the holiday and all he meant to this country. In true DOF/P style, we cover a lot of ground, meandering from what MLK would be like if he could travel through time, how he'd feel about Trump and which stores have Sales in his honor and which states were the last to recognize MLK Day as a holiday? Lots of fun sprinkled throughout. Hope you enjoy! And in the true spirit of MLK, look around and see what you could do for others. He would really appreciate that. Plus, he'd want you to download all our episodes and tell all your friends to do the same... Okay, maybe that's a stretch. Have a great one -

Well, you knew we were going to cover "Star Wars" at some point, right? Here it is, almost as long as the first trilogy and way more fun & entertaining than the second trilogy, DOFPCast's take on the ever expanding SW universe. We give our reviews of "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" and dive into pretty much everything else. Which Star Wars character would we like to be? Who else deserves their own "Solo" treatment in a film? What were the Hog-like Henchmen thinking as they carried the "Carbonyte-Frozen Han" to Jabba's castle? And who are in our top-Five characters in the Star Wars canon?

Plus, we catch up over the Holiday Break, celebrate 20,000, and discuss the Coachella lineup for Summer 2017. Download, listen and love.

Chemistry! That's what makes most Hollywood productions work. If there is no chemistry between castmates, directors and writers, producers and people who have all the money, then a creative project usually doesn't get off the ground. So when Joey and Kurt asked Audrey to be a guest on the first episode of the year, they knew it was going to be spectacular. For one, Audrey is a super fantastic, funny, adorable, intelligent, talented lady. And second, she's Joey's main squeeze. So we knew the chemistry would be off the charts. But how would the Dude dynamic work with one of their significant others in the room? Would there be jealousy? Would there be awkwardness? Sure! And it makes it one of our most amazing shows ever. We learn so much about the amazing Audrey, her American Girl Doll past, Her skills with freestyle, and how she has learned to share Joey with Kurt. All that and so much more. Its funny, informational and at times, tense! Listen in for the most spectacular podcast of the year!

Happy Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza and Tuesday to you! Sorry for the delay on our usual Monday Podcast release. As I'm sure you understand, we take days off just like regular working folks for the holidays. And now we are back and bearing a gift of Tallman. You may remember him from the hilarious "Crossballs" or Channel 101's delightful hit, "Time Belt" or more recently from the Nickelodeon smash, "The Thundermans". And to us, he's a super hero as well, with a special power of making us laugh. We are so thankful Chris made some time for us here in the Coop so we could discuss his past performances, child rearing, impersonation contests, dealing with millennial co-stars and so much more! After a rough year all over the social stratosphere, we are so happy to end it (podcast-wise) on a high note with Chris. Enjoy!

One more thing, if you are still reading this, we wanted to thank you so much for subscribing and listening to our show. We do make an effort to entertain, make you laugh, spread some positivity and maybe even make you think a little bit. We welcome your input:

It's a good news/bad news situation in this episode of @DoFPCast ! Joey and Kurt dissect the state of journalism and how Millennials and Gen Xers absorb their news. In light of the recent "Fake News" epidemic that haunted the presidential election, maybe it's about time for an overhaul of the industry that intends to educate & inform. Do we have any bright ideas about it? Bad News...

But it is a fun show where we also discuss Joey's last shoot day on 'Wet Hot American Summer' and Kurt taking his kids to KROQ's Xmas fest Concert. Plus - R.I.P. Alan Thicke, Russian Hack and the sounds snails make when you step on em.

These cold December days sure can put a toll on you. So many Xmas parties. Wet, slushy days of driving, parking, shopping and wrapping. Tiresome nights of consulting "Best/Worst of the year lists". It can really wear you down. That's when you need a little love from Mom. Or in this case, Joey's TV mom, the incredible Kali Rocha! What a treat for the end of the year/pre-inauguration blues! We are so delighted and thankful to have Kali in the chicken coop for over 2 hours of silliness, reflection, discussion and a little distastefulness. But most of all, it is some of the most fun you'll have all year. Seriously, we talked for over 2 hours, (had two pee breaks for the recording) and still could have talked for a few more. I'm excited for you, the listener, to hear it. So go ahead already!

Plus, be sure to follow Kali on twitter: @kalimrocha and watch her on Liv & Maddie: Cali Style as well as her new role on CBS's Man With A Plan. She amazing on both.

The Dudes go international! What? Canada counts as a different country! Kurt recaps his journey to Vancouver and contemplates a potential move up north. Meanwhile, Joey checks in at Court to follow up his recent arrest. The boys also dive into some of their best Audio Theater ever! Also covered in this week's episode - HBO's "Westworld", Not For Me segment  & Our first ever contest winner. Enjoy!

Nov 28, 2016

Sorry for the late cast, but this one is fresh off the mics. (insert Fire emoji) Yes, that's right, we just recorded this minutes before it's release. SO we're supes topical. Fresh off Thanksgiving, we discuss Holiday Traditions and how we blindly follow them. And as our tradition, we meander from there to topics of mental illness, Death, Black Friday and of course, our weekly tradition, "NOT FOR ME" segment. It's a fun filled episode to be sure. We also have a NEW RECURRING SEGMENT, "Audio Theater", SO hope you like it. Oh and we have a CONTEST THIS WEEK. LISTEN AND WIN. Email us your thoughts, criticism, praise and money to Dudes@dudesoffuturepast.com.
