He has created and starred in several series for the BBC, including comedies with Mike Wilmot, and documentaries often concerning cinema of the United States. Hall has also maintained a successful stand-up comedy career, as both Otis T. Crenshaw and himself. A combination of stand-up, sketch and interview, Rich Hall’s (US Election) Breakdown broadcasts live from the fictional IBBC network in Washington to the whole of the United States. Rich and his producer Nick Doody take calls from every corner of the United States to hear the concerns of voters, offering their take on the issues troubling the American electorate.
Later, David is joined by American economist and stand-up comedian Yorum Bauman. Bauman bills himself as the “world’s first and only stand-up economist.”
Comedians Josh Comers, Lance Weiss and Brendan Fitzgibbons discuss 9/11 and Trump jokes, what to expect leading up to the final week of the election, jury duty, boy scouts, the Cubs, the dumbing down of America, who’s to blame if Trump wins, what it takes to run a stand-up comedy show, and Gaëtan Dugas.
Ten states will be voting on marijuana reform this Tuesday despite the Obama administration’s decision to keep marijuana as a schedule one drug alongside LSD and heroin. California voters will decide on Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, legalizing possession of one ounce of marijuana for adults over the age of 21. Californians will be allowed to grow up to six plants a year. And the sale of marijuana for recreational use would be taxed and regulated.
For more on this we are joined by Dr. Stanton Glantz who is often called the Ralph Nader of the anti-tobacco movement. Dr. Glantz opposes Prop 64. He’s written four books including The Cigarette Papers and is also a professor at the school of medicine at the University of California San Francisco. Dr. Glantz believes tobacco and marijuana have similar chemical profiles, and that as we move towards legalization of marijuana we need to regulate it more like tobacco and less like alcohol.

“I love how David gives both sides of a story: profound and anti-found.” – Congressman Alan Grayson
“A podcast for folks who believe that strong political convictions and a sense of humor do not have to be mutually exclusive.” – Nathan Rabin, The AV Club
