Photographer, viral video creator and Moms Demand Action member Dana Spaeth-Williams shares her opinions on gun sense. Spaeth-Williams launches this straightforward interview declaring “You can keep your gun” and stresses her belief in the need for “gun sense”, not the of dismantling the right to bear arms.

At minute 43 we switch gears and Mark, a card carrying NRA member and pistol instructor shares his philosophy on gun control, Second Amendment rights and where he thinks they’re headed.
His Road Stories podcast has been touted by USA Today as “One of the funniest of 2013”. His TV writing for The Tonight Show (Fallon and Leno), Ridiculousness, Bill Engvall’s Here’s Your Sign Awards etc. has earned him more awards than Kim Kardashians had STD’s. He’s written for Conan O’Brian, Steve Carell, Dennis Miller. He created and produced the Cold Turkey reality TV series. In this episode Bernie & AL take a tour around the mind of Murray Valeriano. They get his take on the Joel Osteen, religion and what it’s like to be the son of a preacher.
Of course there’s the obligatory comedy industry stories, dick jokes and other malarkey.
Taylor Williamson talks about how America’s Got Talent changed his comedy career, what he’s been up to since coming in second place on the show and announces his guest appearance date for this season. Don’t let the rags to riches story fool you, Taylor is The Real Deal who has been performing standup comedy full force since his senior year of high school and he works just as hard now as he did when he started. The three comedians discuss working various facets of the comedy circuit and are pleasantly surprised when they realize Taylor is the son Bernie & AL gave up for adoption when they were teens.
