This week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show features two great guests. 

The first part of the show is very unique, and is perhaps a first in the history of podcasting and other online media. Friend of the show and website Bill the Lizard stops by and offers up a very concerned and heartfelt intervention for his friend of many years Chauncey DeVega. Apparently, Chauncey has been compromised, grammatically possessed by an entity known as "epononymously". 


Over the course of several years, Bill the Lizard has been documenting Chauncey's possession and (now) emancipation. This is an amazing conversation about confronting the evil within ourselves--a journey made even more frightening by the fact that Chauncey did not know that he was under the control of such a terrifying and nefarious entity.


The second part of this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show features sociologist Jessie Daniels. Dr. Daniels is one of the founders--along with Professor Joe Feagin--of the great and essential website known as Racism Review


Jessie and Chauncey chatted several months ago and their first conversation was erased by a mischievous spirit. Jessie kindly agreed to sit down to a second chat at the virtual salon. This was great fun. In this conversation, Jessie and Chauncey talk about popular culture, cyber racism, digital literacy and racism, police murders, the language of "lynching", and Jessie Daniel's upcoming memoir. 


Chauncey also informs Jessie about the joy that is the movies Leprechaun and Troll 2


In this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Chauncey also talks about his favorite cologne, using "mud butt" as a catchall excuse for life's travails, his most recent interview on Ring of Fire TV, and feeling like his timing was off with several great essays full of rhetorical and political dynamite that were misfires this week and last.
