When the bias trainings, body cams, and oversight doesn’t work, it’s time to defund the police. Maybe even time think about why we ever needed police in the first place? Gasp! Professor Alex Vitale breaks down why the connection between austerity politics of cities and the policing of the poor, and why the left should focus on Democratic governors and mayors as well as Republican lawmakers. Speaking of which, Governor Andrew Cuomo is exactly the New York machista he appears to be on television, CPAC is still a political freak circus, and Marjorie Taylor Greene doesn’t understand gender but is obsessed with your genitalia. Comedian and actor Baron Vaughn joins Francesca for some slapdash Cuomo brothers impersonations and belly laughs.

It's SO funny), is the character 'Bud' in 'Grace and Frankie', and even had a cameo in the amazing American monster film, 'Cloverfield', which came out in 2008.With a successful career in comedy under his belt too - appearing on Conon, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson - I was pretty nervous when it came to speaking to him. But, surprise, surprise, he was lovely.We chatted all things mental health and, of course, spoke about his role in the 'Laughing Matters' Soul Pancake documentary, which features a bunch of successful US comedians speaking about the role mental illness had played throughout their careers.Baron Vaughn: "I'm a person who lives life. So, therefore, I experience anxiety and depression".If you enjoy the episode or any of the others, please share with friends, family, or anyone who you think they may help.This is brilliant.

Things Are Going Great For Me with J. Claude Deering
It’s a comedian heavy episode of Things Are Going Great For Me. J. Claude Deering (Twitter/Instagram) chats with comedian and actor Baron Vaughn (Grace and Frankie / Comedy Central's Corporate). They talk about some personal shared experience seeking out and connecting with a birth parent. The American education system. The way in which fear and anxiety can be a necessary part of the artistic process. Breaking out of the boxes of Hollywood’s racial stereotypes. And putting a tape together for Saturday Night Live. Followed by a second interview with comedian Liz Glazer. Liz talks about doing comedy during a pandemic. Her engagement to a rabbi. Her panic inducing bat mizvah.
