Welcome to Season 12 of this Lit & Lucid Journey! We kick off the season with fellow podcasters, Mary Jane Gibson and Mike Glazer of Weed + Grub. We learn more about how they started the podcast, and the initial ideas that evolved along the way to today’s show about cannabis, culture, comedy, cooking, and calling shit out. We chatted about the munchies and some of the best munchie foods there are out there, including Jarrod’s favorite, Reese’s eggs, and Mary Jane’s favorite roasted chicken recipe by Barefoot Contessa.
Mike and Mary Jane tell us more about how cannabis plays a role in comedy and more on the daily grind of writing jokes. Mike providing authentic insight into what it truly takes to be a comedian, getting creative support from Mary Jane on the reg. We finish up the show with a vulnerable conversation about the importance of therapy and how it’s helped us all become better people giving us the skills to balance life’s daily challenges, especially in 2020!
We loved chatting with fellow podcasts Mike & Mary Jane and hope you get a few laughs and insights from the episode.
