60. Where Are Our Alien Friends? The Fermi Paradox with Josiah Jenkins

Dumb Nerds: Comedians Talking About Smart Topics They're Too Dumb For

Aliens. What do you think? Are they out there? The Fermi Paradox raises a very puzzling belief that there should be and yet we have no evidence. The Fermi Paradox was named after physicist Enrico Fermi and he theorizes that based on all the billions of stars in the galaxy, trillions in the universe, there must exist planets similar to Earth that contains life and yet we have no proof there is. All we have heard out there is silence. So does this silence mean we’re all alone? Or have Earthlings and other alien species not evolved enough to possess the ability to properly communicate with each other? Guest Josiah Jenkins (The 8 Dollar Game Show podcast) and Cassi Jerkins discuss the many different theories that explore the Fermi Paradox. Enjoy!  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Episode 52: Josiah Jenkins


Improvisor and Podcaster Josiah Jenkins exercises his right to remain hilarious as we talk Hanna Barbera cartoons, TV shows that overstayed their welcomes, people (still) paying for AOL and touring a prison. Also, he was a filthy telemarketer, but don't hold that against him. The PopFury Podcast has moved! Please visit us on our new website at PopFuryPodcast.com! SHOW NOTES: 0:00 Intro 0:55 Sammy wonders who Josiah is related to and it leads to a deep dive into Hannah Barbera cartoons like Wacky Races and Laff-A-Lympics.  In related animated news, Brad Bird will be doing The Incredibles 2. 6:30 Josiah is a lawyer and explains how court proceedings really work. Sammy doubts Josiah was a good law student. Josiah wishes he could use a fake name on Facebook. 13:25 Olympus Has Fallen has an upcoming sequel: London Has Fallen. 16:00 NBC has thrown in the towel on sitcoms. Josiah defends The Slap, is digging Brooklyn Nine-Nine and identifies with Michael from Arrested Development (according to Sammy). 27:00 We ponder what TV shows that may have gone on too long. Growing up, Josiah wasn't allowed to watch Friends or Seinfeld. 33:00 A Chinese amusement park has a cremation simulator. 37:25 Congressional Representatives are holding fundraisers at a Taylor Swift concert. Josiah used to be a telemarketer in high school. 43:55 2.1 Million people still pay AOL for dial-up internet.

Episode 90 - MBSing with Josiah Jenkins - Law

The Nerdologues Present: MBSing

Josiah Jenkins is a FOR REAL lawyer while simultaneously being an improviser! And he came to talk some for real law talk with me. It makes me anxious to think about having to take such a definitive stance on things that don't have clear sides, so that coupled with the amount of time cases can take make me not envy the position Josiah enjoys and thrives in. Josiah specifically works in employment law (discrimination, wrongful termination, harassment, etc.), and it's totally fascinating to hear about and think about the ins and outs of this side of civil law. At the top we discuss our shared experiences as podcast hosts, so check out Josiah's show The Remake!
