Episode 100: Comedian and Actor Pete Holmes



It’s an exciting time for Pete Holmes as Hollywood is recovering from the limitations of the pandemic. Before his current place in the world of comedy was cemented, Pete Holmes starred in CollegeHumor’s beloved web series Badman, a Batman-spoof depicting a socially-awkward caped crusader in some of his less heroic moments. He’s since headlined several hour-long stand-up specials, Dirty Clean, Faces and Sounds, and Nice Try, The Devil! 

His 2017 HBO series Crashing, while short-lived, drew critical acclaim for its endearing, funny, and candid look into the life of an aspiring stand-up comic. His first book, Comedy Sex God, debuted in 2019. A blend of autobiography, philosophical inquiry, and spiritual awakening, the book delivers an engaging, uplifting look at his journey from performing in small-town churches to finding his footing in New York’s comedy scene. In this interview, Holmes shares his take on psychedelics, spirituality, and the progression of his career in comedy.


Episode 99: Baked With Berner



In less than a decade, Gilbert “Berner” Milam Jr., has turned his brand, Cookies, into a half-a-billion dollar a year enterprise. He isn’t a tech mogul turned cannabis enthusiast. He doesn’t come from a long history of money or connections. Berner is a hard-working rapper and former budtender who loves the herb. In 2013, he trademarked “COOKIES SF” as a manufacturer of t-shirts and sweatshirts so he could hang a trademarked sign outside his dispensaries. Since no one can obtain a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for a federally illegal substance, this was the only way to prevent others from using the name and profiting off his work. This clever maneuver was a pivotal step in Berner’s success. His dominion over one of America’s favorite strains allowed the brand to gain global prestige. To discover what combination of drive, innovation, and ingenuity is required for such a meteoric rise, we spoke with Berner from his San Francisco recording studio via phone for the spring 2021 issue.
