This week on Black Hoodie Alchemy, comedic actor Steve Berg (of Drunk History, Bob’s Burgers, New Girl, Adventure Time, and movies like Tag and Don’t Worry, Darling) joins us once more! Well… sort of. He actually “put me in touch” with an estranged “friend” of his named Jason Tortilla. As Jason explains throughout the podcast, he was a “professorial-type” that was unable to make tenure while at the Bristol Academy in the UK.

You can listen to the full episode right here!

And if you’d like to see a small video clip of me speaking with Jason, you can watch it right here!

Somehow, through ways that may or may not involve hash, a schizophrenic break, or perhaps a truly chaos-magickal multiverse adventure of epic proportions — Jason found himself stumbling through a hole in the wall that served to be a gateway to what can only be described as JRR Tolkien’s Middle Earth. Yes, the setting of the Lord of the Rings books among many others. To make matters worse, it would appear that the hole from whence Jason emerged is now gone, and he has spent several months trapped in the strange and tumultuous forests of Middle Earth!

How exactly did he end up there? What was his life like before all this, and how has life been since this tragic desolation? How might we be able to get Jason the hell out of there? And also, why hasn’t Steve Berg tried to raise awareness for his so-called-friend’s tragic predicament? Way to drop the ball, Steve…

Anyways, after the conversation with Jason, we do feature a very small bit with Steve himself at the end, talking about his time working on the beloved show, ‘Drunk History’. And after that we reminisce on some of the greatest bits of Black Hoodie Alchemy 30, when Joe Rupe of Lighting the Void interviewed the legend himself — Redneck Mystic Tippy Patson! Tippy talks about his upbringing, his current divination practices, his version of the Book of Revelation, and then we hear some more from our beloved League-of-Extordinary-Gentlemen show sponsors!

Lastly, if you’d like to see Tippy P read Revelations in video-form, check this link here!

Or click this link if you’d like to see Tippy describe how Ufologist David Wilcock taught him how to bathe in his own urine to gain telepathic powers!

I hope you dig it.
