For our second week of October, we are staying in France to look at the life and legacy of Marquis de Sade. Most authors write what they know, and he knew much about debauchery, perversion, depravity and torture. Themes and values in his life made it into everything he wrote about. His books were also mixed with his political views and can be viewed as a kind of satire. Additionally, he was an aristocrat who lived through the French Revolution, gained seats in the new government, was sent to exile, was in prison for nearly half his life, carried on adulterous affairs and angered Napoleon. He also believed in a life where he could do whatever he wanted, whenever, however and to whomever. He is also the person for whom the term 'sadism" is named after!

The UK has been swept up in a week of economic and political turmoil, with Prime Minister Liz Truss's Conservative government coming under increasing pressure over its controversial tax cut plan. Financial markets are roiled, the British pound tanked, and the IMF issued a rare rebuke. Meanwhile in Italy, the electoral success of Giorgia Meloni marks a lurch to the far right that will see a party with roots in neo-fascism enter power for the first time since World War II. And in the US, the latest January 6 hearing had to be postponed due to the devastating arrival of Hurricane Ian. Political chaos often acts as inspiration for Armando Iannucci's work. He's beloved for his comedies, looking at the absurdity of politics in The Thick of It, Veep, and The Death of Stalin. His latest work, Avenue 5, is a sitcom about a tourist spaceship thrown off course. But as he explains to Christiane, his goal isn't just to poke fun at those in power, but increasingly to try and shore up our fragile democratic norms.

Summary Alex Finley (Twitter; Website) joins Andrew (Twitter; LinkedIn) to discuss life as a CIA Reports Officer turned author. She lives in Barcelona. What You'll Learn Intelligence Her take on CIA analysts vs. case officers  Information and disinformation in fact and fiction  Ukraine, the 2016 election and the Russian historical playbook  The regularity even mundanity of much of daily intelligence life  Reflections Being an American in Barcelona  Viewing your own country from outside the goldfish bowl And much, much more… Episode Notes Alex Finley spent 6 years in the CIA as a Reports Officer - whom she describes as a bridge between the case officers and analysts. She is author of a trilogy of novels on the exploits of fictional CIA officer Victor Caro. Her most recent book, Victor in Trouble, completes the series (…or does it?) by looking at Russian influence operations and the contemporary intelligence landscape through a satirical lens.  She now lives in Barcelona, Spain - and yes, apparently it's as awesome as it sounds! – and she is the voice behind #YachtWatch, which tracks and exposes the activities of Russian oligarchs and their superyachts.  And… Satire is often described as fitting into three categories: Horatian, which offers light comedy and social commentary (e.g., Pride & Prejudice, Parks & Rec, The Colbert Report); Juvenalian, a darker and more abrasive take that can often take the form of speaking truth to power (e.g., Animal Farm, American Psycho, South Park) and Menippean, which casts moral judgement on beliefs or generic character flaws (e.g., Alice in Wonderland, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Saturday Night Live). Which one does Alex use?  Quote of the Week "There, there were points where I found myself in the middle of nowhere, West Africa. And there are these moments where…how did I end up here?

Rebekah is a writer, author, and entrepreneur. Her work has appeared in Forbes, Business Insider, New York Times, HuffPost Comedy, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Be You, and countless other publications. We talk about how you can enjoy solitude, how it positively impacts your mental health, and why you should ditch the shoulds and artificial timelines and enjoy your life today.  “We probably spend half of our lives alone on some level but I don't think we do it very well.” - Rebekah Iliff  “Solitude is kind of this proactive choice and a choice of self-love because we know that we need it and isolation is we're either forced into it or we're doing it because we can't function. And so from a mental health standpoint it's always good to be checking in if we're isolating or we're choosing an act of self-love.” - Rebekah Iliff What You Will Learn From This Episode Why learning how to love solitude is so important right now How we can let go of society's artificial timeline on things like marriage and having kids On losing a friend and how to handle the grief How to date yourself or manage Valentine's Day if you're single or in a complicated relationship Isolation vs solitude - how solitude and doing things alone positively impacts our mental health How to have more fun today About Rebekah Iliff: Rebekah Iliff is a writer, author, and entrepreneur based in Nashville, Tennessee.

Check out our final discussion of Over the Garden Wall, episodes 7 through 10, in which our intrepid explorers face their final tests of telling friend from foe and resisting pure despair, and they have their long awaited confrontation with The Beast! We also get a bit of their backstory on how they became lost among the lands of The Unknown, and what they stand to lose if they cannot make it back home. We talk about the symbolism and weaknesses of The Beast, and just what makes him so alluring. Like, seriously, he seems like he would be cool to hang out with. We also delve into the nuances of how Greg and Wirt's different personalities shape their experiences of The Unknown. So strap on some comfy headphones and prepare to be intrigued, mystified, and disgusted by your faithful Satirist crew!

Paul sits down with the charming and ascendant George Hahn to talk about sobriety, tenacity and Cary Grant's suit.George was recently featured in the New York Times and given the designation of “Urban Raconteur.”  Spot on considering how the satirist, humorist, sartorialist, minimalist, bicyclist, urbanist, humanist, soloist and coffee elitist is becoming essential viewing on social media with his hilarious and intimate live-streamed morning walks through Central Park with his dogs. But what made this podcast so rich and meaningful was the discussion around George's 19 years of sobriety. Where he was at the turn of the century (Sex and The City and a famous paramour are only part of the story), when his hard living had to end and how he now finds peace as a creative enjoying his own renaissance in the city he loves dearly. Follow George Hahn on Instagram: @georgehahnFollow George Hahn on Twitter: @georgehahnFollow George Hahn on TikTok: @georgehahnnycVisit GeorgeHahn.com Host: Paul ChamberlainGuest: George HahnProduced by: Cerebral Itch LabsEngineered & Edited by: April WinchellLearn more about Smart Funny Tortured: Visit smartfunnytortured.com Clips featured in this episode:North By Northwest - Turner EntertainmentDays of Wine and Roses - Warner Bros.

Jimmy Tingle is one of the first people I interviewed in the Boston comedy scene years ago. He was hosting and producing a stand-up show on race relations that featured, among others, Patrice O'Neal and Sue Costello. During my twenty years covering this scene, Tingle has always been a community-minded guy, whether it's been as a theater owner for five years or his Humor for Humanity comedy benefit shows. So it wasn't a surprise when he declared his candidacy for Lt. Governor of Massachusetts in the Democratic primary last year. He eventually lost, but garnered 41.3 percent of the vote as a first-time candidate in the primary. His new show, 20/20 Vision, recounts his campaign, surreal moments like having Matt Damon and Paula Poundstone record robocalls on his behalf, and presents some of his out-of-the-box ideas, like using exercise bikes as a power source or windmills near highways to power traffic lights. Tingle is a political comedian, but he's never been a fire-breathing, tear-it-all-down satirist. He's always been optimistic and upbeat. It is no easy feat to look at the divisions in this country and offer optimistic solutions. I sat down with Tingle in the Podcast Kitchen and asked him how he remains so hopeful, the one time I ever saw him get angry in a political discussion, about his early days in the Boston and New York comedy scenes, about the campaign, how recovery inspired his political bid, how he believes in government, his cameo on VEEP, and a lot more. You can find out more about where he's going to be and what he's up to at jimmytingle.com I am very pleased to present you with this week's featured tracks, excerpts from the audiobook of Nathan Ballingrud's latest collection, Wounds: Six Stories from the Border of Hell. Ballingrud has a remarkable imagination and a delicious vocabulary. Take the subtitle seriously – these are lovingly rendered tales of the horrific. Severed heads with lolling tongues that induce a feeling of violence in anyone around them. Angels who tear apart their hosts to be born into this world. And child-eating ghouls. About that last one. You may have heard rumors about Jonathan Wormcake. About how he and his friends attacked the Cold Water Fair in 1914, what he does up there in that mansion, about how the children are drawn there by ghastly visions. Maybe some of it is true, but Wormcake is dying, and he'd like to set the record straight on a few myths about ghouls and how the Skullpocket Fair came to be before he goes. And that brings us to the beginning of “Skullpocket,” one of the six stories in Wounds. You can find him at nathanballingrud.com or on Twitter under @nallingrud. He'll be a guest on the podcast next week Audio excerpts courtesy of Simon & Schuster Audio from “Skullpocket”, read by Danny Campbell in the compilation WOUNDS by Nathan Ballingrud.
