Koz Effect Ep 100: OUR 100TH EPISODE OF KOZ EFFECT!

We've managed to make it to 100 episodes - 100 weeks of haranguing, arguments, finger-pointing, scoffing and lambasting - all the finest aspects of the American political-debate tradition! Some members of our panel have fallen by the wayside over the past two years - mostly from the Right- but nonetheless we have survived to create an UNsafe haven for insane opinions from all sides of the political spectrum weekly. We are proud to have the legendary comics Will Durst (providing a custom made rant weekly!) and Paul Rodriguez (occasionally sitting in from the Right) with us as we embark on our biggest venture yet - doing a live podcast from Politicon on June 25 that we're taping as a pilot to sell the show for TV.

This is funny and smart and if you're a student and listen, make sure your teacher gets you either extra credit or out of detention!

Episode 68 - Send in the Clowns: The Republican Debate

Sound man Johnny O termed this “an amazingly civil debate about the Republican debate”, in which the gang discussed the clown carload of candidates running for President among the Republicans. Still plenty of laughs to be had!

Episode 67 - Abortion, Part II: Selling Organs

More Planned Parenthood videos came out this week, and Ari led the charge against PP for its apparent misuse of fetal organs. But what started as another shouting match soon turned into one of the best and most civil and thoughtful debates over abortion, PP and a wide range of related issues that you will hear anywhere in America. The show really needs to add a woman panelist, but for four dudes, this was one hell of a talk. Great, thoughtful and occasionally funny moments throughout.

Episode 63

Classic Koz Effect

Episode 62 - Mass Shootings

Perhaps our BEST EPISODE EVER, as we took on the Charleston hate-crime shootings, and the nature of what makes mass shooters go crazy, why mass shooters are almost always white guys, and a funny and thoughtful debate over the Second Amendment and was it meant to go this way?

Episode 61 - Transpacific Partnership

With Koz and Conservative Attack Dog Ari David both gone, the show was a lefty lovefest, with Dr. David Robinson and Tymon Shipp joined by special guest panelist Johnny Owens, Radio Titans’ co-head poobah and sound wizard, as they discussed the Transpacific Partnership treaty’s failure and, as usual, a bevy of racial news especially the mysterious case of Rachel Dolezal, the white woman who passed herself off as black so successfully she became head of an NAACP chapter!.

This episode is currently unavailable.



Episode 53 - Ted Lyde Strikes Back / Border Control

An amazingly funny episode, with the original Angry Black Man of “Koz Effect,” Ted Lyde, back in the house and restraining himself from killing the new resident conservative, Ari David. Dr. David Robinson had a joke in “The Week We Were” that made Koz turn purple with laughter, Dr. David also admitted for the first time ever that Reagan was right (well, once, according to him), Ari went down the “why Ted’s not a thug” checklist, and Ted actually agreed with Ari about the need to control our borders, but just differed on how.

We cover Iranian nuke negotiations, Netanyahu’s Israeli win, Suge Knight and his $25 million bail and Starbucks’ ill fated attempt to make us all discuss race over our mocha lattes.

This episode is currently unavailable.



Episode 48 - Racist Rapping / Iran Nuclear Deal

We have another walkout, as conservative panelist Larry Meyers hung up and quit before we even got through Dr. David Robinson’s “The Week We Were” news jokes. But Koz, Tymon and Dave still had fun expressing outrage over Oklahoma’s racist frat brothers and their bizarre house mother’s use of the “N word” while rapping along to a song, all sorts of other racist issues, and then to frightening new GOP Sen. Tom Cotton’s open letter to the Iranian government stating that Congress could interfere or shut down the country’s current nuclear negotiations, when in fact, they really aren’t allowed. A very funny episode filled with humorous outrage!

A rich, fun, and funny episode that ranks as one of our best!

This episode is currently unavailable.



Episode 43 - Terrorism

One of our most explosive episodes ever, as Muslim terror leads to a wild shouting match between Howie and Ted in which a very bad word is used for the first – and last – times ever on the show. If you thought your Thanksgiving dinner arguments were bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

This episode is currently unavailable.



Episode 42 - Terror / Racism

Another hot week in the news, with terror and racism rearing their ugly heads as usual, but with the guys managing to find the funny with Larry calling in, Howie, Ted, Dr. Dave and Koz in the studio.

Episode 41 - Monkey

Dr. David Robinson still phoned in from NYC and Larry Meyers had a car break down keep him from the studio, but things still got crazy as guest host Monica (you heard her two weeks before – oy!- under a different name) dared to call President Obama a “monkey” (her word, not ours) – prompting Koz to stop tape and throw her out of the studio. Then the rest of the gang – Howie Walfish, Ted Lyde, Koz and Dr. Dave – started the tape up again and discussed THAT, race relations, had a mega argument over abortion, and then had fun mocking out Sarah Palin and Donald Trump’s presidential aspirations. One hell of a weird one!

This episode is currently unavailable.



Episode 40 - James Taylor / The Oscars

With Howie Walfish out sick and Dr. David Robinson phoning in from New York City, the show still covered plenty of outrageous topics, from why wasn’t President Obama at the French rally and why DID John Kerry bring James Taylor when HE went? to the whitewashing of the Oscars as no black actors were nominated for only the second time in 20 years, to – as always- broader and more contentiously funny issues involving race, all brought to a gentle close with a group singalong of James Taylor’s “You’ve Got a Friend."

This episode is currently unavailable.



Episode 39 - Deporting Muslims

With “Sal’s Mom” from the late great RT podcast “Sorry You Met My Mother” in the house, things got unpredictable fast! She called for sending back every single Muslim from Paris to the Middle East, and things went weirder from there. Wild, unpredictable stuff.

This episode is currently unavailable.



Episode 38 - Bill Cosby / Police Shootings

We ring in the new year by bashing the old, with the team of Koz, Ted Lyde, Dr. David Robinson, Howie Walfish and Larry Meyers taking on the 5 biggest stories of the year, including Bill Cosby’s misadventures with women, the sad passing of Robin Williams and why comics often are depressed, and the whole battle royale over cops and their tendency to shoot unarmed black men way too often. It’s a hot one and funny too!
