Yoshi Didn't Podcast

Please enjoy the new episode of Yoshi Didn't podcast, this time with Professor Sean Tilson. Sean is a postdoctoral fellow at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden. By the way, KTH, the MIT of Sweden, is also the alma mater of Dolph Lundgren! Yes, that Lundgren! (Lundgren as Ivan Drago [to Rocky]: "I must break you.")

Anyway, never mind about my digression. Sean’s a terrific mathematician and fun conversationalist. We met right after my standup show at the Big Ben club in Stockholm. Get ready for some calculating conversation with Sean on subjects ranging from Detroit to homotopy theory!

My comedy compatriot and friend, Jonathan Wolff Cohen, is our guest this week on the Yoshi Didn't podcast. He was instrumental in acquiring my previous guests (Episode 55: Michael Lodberg Olsen and Episode 56: Joergen Kjaer) in Denmark; Jonathan was able to get Mr. Olsen on the show because he’d previously volunteered helping the addicts of Istegade Street via Olsen's "Illegal" organization.

I first met Jonathan through our mutual comedy buddy Jason Rouse (Episode 35) as Jonathan produces many great comedy shows in Denmark and Sweden. We talked about his "Jewish" upbringing and early years as a poor man's Walter White in Northern Denmark (he was a teenage crime lord back then). Anyway, please enjoy the show and follow Jonathan!

Let’s welcome another fantastic guest to the show - my longtime friend and very talented comedian, Rosie Tran. If there's a group of people who can endure torment and take it with a smile, it's the delightful Vietnamese! Rosie exemplifies that: Tough, kind and shrewd.

One thing I’ve learned about Rosie is that she can do anything. She has accomplished so much in the ten years I've known her: Rosie’s a successful standup comedian, actress, scriptwriter and savvy investor (did I mention she's Vietnamese?). She also managed to earn a Master’s degree somewhere in that busy schedule. We talked about her family, and I was stunned to learn of Rosie's gentle dad’s unusual profession during the Vietnam war.

Rosie is the proud mother of two puppies (Mitzi & Jamie) and wife of the poor man’s Liam Hemsworth, aka Andrew Voorhees. Please follow her twitter account and especially her podcast show:

Check out our first episode of 2014, my conversation with standup
comedienne and actress Aiko Tanaka. Originally from Tokyo, she is a
familiar face on the comedy scene in Los Angeles.

Here she tells us the very amusing story of why she first moved to
Boston and eventually to L.A. Aiko was very active in the dancing and
modeling business, until she became smitten by American manzai (standup
comedy). Rick Hall (Episode 49: Go East, Old Man) was also on hand to
chime in when Aiko discussed her views of Japan.

You can check out Aiko in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Miss
Cast Away, and Finishing the Game, as well as her appearances on the
Howard Stern Show and the Tonight Show. Enjoy the episode. Jaa mata ne!
