Shut-In Series - EP 01 - Gin Hurley of Tigersmoon Design

Shut-In Series - EP 01 - Gin Hurley of Tigersmoon Design

Today, we have a chat with local artist Gin Hurley of Tigersmoon Design (

Gin is a ceramics artist, and we have a bit of a natter about living with Covid-19 as an artist in North Carolina. We chat fire, pottery and what this whole thing means.

Says Gin: "Form is an element in all of my work, a continuation of the duality between form and function. Form can be the simplicity of shape but also the idea that the item has a decorative quality as opposed to a functional use. Forms have changed over time, though with the study of the past we see they hold elements that have not left us. I find inspiration in forms throughout history both utility and cultural (such as symbols)."

John Jones - The Technology Doctor

John Jones - The Technology Doctor

In Debacle Twenty Two (I can't have it in the title anymore, or Apple throws a hissy and refuses to index the show,) I have another sit-down with John Jones of Dr. Jones PC Support.

Always a lovely time! In this hour-ish episode, we get a little into John's involvement in the Marie Curie, supporting terminal patients and their families.

We laugh a bit too much and tell awful jokes in between massive nuggets of science, wisdom and vaping anecdotes.

Plus Hives and Dead Kennedys!

Debacle Twenty One - Donald Dodson

Debacle Twenty One - Donald Dodson

In this highly immoral episode, I speak with the wonderfully talented Donald Dodson of Dodson Designs. Donald is an amazing leatherworker and artist - and it was a pleasure to get into a little natter with the man.

We talk leather, old-school printing, badassery and what the hell externality means. I'm still not sure - but I'm sure we talk about it.

While you're out there looking at leather, please be sure to visit and BUY MY SHIT!!!

Also, Scratch Acid and Southern Culture on the Skids!

Debacle Twenty - Paul Tokgozoglu

In this highly controversial episode, I sit down with (I am assuming he was sitting) Paul Tokgozoglu and talk about higher intelligence, lower intelligence, the military, space, drugs, block chain, weird smells and those little black rubber things.

Check out more of Paul at Beyond Homosapien. Good stuff from a great guy with a real interest in what it all really means and where it's all really going.

Debacle Nineteen - Katie Switzer

On this weeks debacle, I have the distinct pleasure to welcome the person on Facebook who I probably annoy the most.

Katie Switzer of Guilt Free Families is a parenting "guru" (she hates it when I call her that) with a real focus on healing parents to heal families to raise healthy kids. We talk parenting & entrepreneurship, obscene rage and why we all just need to calm down a little bit.

Debacle Sixteen - Landon Porter

Debacle Sixteen - Landon Porter

In this debacle, I have the pleasure of talking with The King Gorilla himself, Landon Porter. Known far and wide as the Sales Gorilla, Landon has been a vociferous ape for changing the way sales is done.

He's a solid guy with solid advice and somewhat decent taste in music. We chat about sales, egos, ties and a bunch of other stuff I'm too lazy to type out. Good shit, though.

To learn more about Landon and the Gorilla Way, visit

If you don't know Landon, you need to know Landon. If you know Landon, you probably love Landon. If you know Landon and you don't love him, you may need professional help.

Plus Dead Kennedys and Tool!

Debacle Thirteen - Nathan Fraser

Debacle Thirteen - Nathan Fraser

During this debacle, I get to talk to a dude I've been admiring from afar. No - not like that. I've always enjoyed Nathan's swagger and the level of professionalism he brings to all his projects. We have a bit of a chat about social media, artistic integrity (or the lack thereof,) content and memes. Check Nathan out at - goooooooood shit from a good dude with great ideas. Plus GBH & Mark D!!! Sit back and stick a sharp pencil in your ear.

Debacle Twelve - Bob Clark, Dammit

Bob Clark is a man of unfathomable talent and unquestionable prowess in hats, podcasts & social media ideas. While I tried desperately to derail the entire show with nonsense, Bob brought it back around to value. I should probably hire him to produce the debacles.

Debacle Eleven - Ayla Grace Zelles!

Debacle Eleven - Ayla Grace Zelles!

In what is EASILY the sexiest debacle, Uncle Jimbo welcomes in Ayla Grace Zelles, a sex and relationship coach from (I think) somewhere in Spain. Isn't the internet cool? But - we talk about music, touring, toxicity and masturbating in public restrooms. Plus, an inordinately long diatribe about orgasms. Learn more about Ayla at - she's a warm, wonderful soul - and she knows what she's talking about. Plus, Swans & Naked Raygun!!! GET IT IN YOUR EARHOLES!!!

Debacle Ten - Steven S. Safak!

In the latest shambling wreck that is the Uncle Jimbo Side Show, we speak with my son Steven S. Safak. We discuss a few lofty things, but the real meat of the show is talking about dogs. Plus, some strange metaphysical jokes that only make sense if you're WOKE. Steven's a helluva guy with a great sense of humor and a heart the size of Texas. You can check him out at Plus Tomahawk & Fear!

Debacle Nine - Ashley Sanders!

Debacle Nine - Ashley Sanders!

In what may be the worst debacle ever, Ashley Sanders stops by to wander around, chasing her dog all over the damned place. We chat about non-profits, booze and the secret to a long-lasting marriage. We get a little into marketing and influencers - but we quickly changed the topic.

Plus Archers of Loaf and Big Black.

In this massive debacle, we talk with Knuta aaaaaaaallllll the way from Norway.
