On Los Angeles Vacations, Racial Tensions In America And The Art That Is Russian Trolling.
If you're a listener of KTCK 1310-AM or 96.7 FM, you probably feel like you already know TC Fleming and Jake Kemp well. And if you're not a listener of The Ticket? Well, whatever. You're about to get real familiar with these two just the same. Wanna hear past episodes? You can check out IJB's archives here and on our Soundcloud page. Wanna subscribe to the podcast on iTunes?

Emboldened by President Barack Obama's continued use of the podcast medium, we serve up quite an episode this week!
Or maybe it's the extra day that makes this week's take so solid? Not sure, but the reason you're hearing this on a Thursday instead of a Wednesday is because I only just now returned from a trip to Los Angeles.
That trip is the focus of the first half of this week's show. Among other anecdotes, I share a fun interaction I had at a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live! You'll hear about that as well as a hard endorsement from Jake on Disney theme parks and any big drop rides in general. I also discuss an awkward interaction I had with an old couple at Universal Studios. Enjoy that! And our obligatory discussions of the great Los Angeles-set TV show The Shield.
We get way more real in the second half of the podcast, touching real quick on the tough racial week America had. Abroad, there are some crazy things going on in Russia, too, where they've turned trolling into a concentrated weapon, Anyway, we're pretty scared about it.
