Changes in the World
First episode of Carmody Central and so excited to have Colin Quinn as my first guest. We talk about new diseases, Colin brings up sex addiction vs. over indulgence and we discuss whether people see real diseases and pretend in order to justify their own behavior? We also discuss boiling a pineapple, jumping in the subway tracks, and how male actors are infuriatingly sexy nowadays. Some other topics we touch on, tabloids, paparazzi, sex clubs, catholic school, and choosing the sex of your baby. New religions involving alien experiences and I try to convince Colin why there’s an Alien headquarters in North Bergen, NJ.
