Rank #1: 290 - Joe Rogan and Duncan Trussell (Shrimp Parade #10)
Spent 4 hours today in the studio with these two beautiful maniacs. We talked about everything from DMT to the #metoo movement, to the size of Jeff Sessions's schlong. To call it a "wide-ranging" conversation would be an understatement.

Rank #9: 100 - Cacilda Jethá
Dr. Cacilda Jethá is unlike anyone you've ever met. Guaranteed. My wife, friend, co-author, and partner in crime for the past 15 years, she can't remember how many people have died in front of her, or how many babies she's delivered. She's part Indian, part Persian, part African, part Portuguese, and speaks seven languages. She lives at the nexus of many worlds and moves between them with incredible grace, generosity, and humor.

Rank #15: 360 - Greg Lansky (Porn Mogul)
Greg knew he wasn't going to make it in the normal world. He craved the disapproval of hypocrites and scolds. He wanted to be an outlaw, but didn't want to risk getting shot or put in a cage. And he liked sex. So he fought his way to the top of the adult entertainment industry by being smarter, working harder, and betting it all on himself.

Rank #20: TOMA 8 (Chiapas)
It's 1983, and I'm on my first trip to a foreign culture with a sharpened Kung-Fu star hanging from my neck. One thing leads to another and I realize I've stumbled into something far deeper, and more dangerous, than I could have imagined.
