Unsafe Studio: Brendan O’Neill, Laura Crawford, Marcella Arguello

Our latest episode of Unsafe Studio, the version of the show recorded in Lou’s apartment as opposed to in front of a live audience, features Brendan O’Neill, editor of spiked magazine and columnist for the Australian and the Big Issue, as well as the hilarious Marcella Arguello and Laura Crawford.

We talk about universities, free speech, whether New York is better or worse now, and a few hundred other things.

Unsafe Space tackles Income Inequality this Wednesday, Feb 24th!

The word of the day is wealth redistribution. Well, that’s two words, but the questions remain, such as:

Should we raise the wage or lower the class rage?
Welfare state: good idea or bad university name?
Blame the billionaire class or celebrate classy billionaires?

Coming to the rescue is our latest show, featuring two great guest comedians:

* Betsy Salkind, who’s appeared on the Tonight Show and Comedy Central and is also a former Federal Reserve Bank Examiner.

* Keith Carey, a fixture at the Comedy Store, host of the Mean Boys Podcast, and winner of three SoCal comedy competitions.

Plus two great experts from very different areas:

* James McKeever, the Chair of Sociology and Philosophy at Pierce College. In addition to teaching, he has worked with the Los Angeles County Probation Department on designing prevention and intervention programs for detained youth.

* Andrei Muresianu, director of research at Capital Group, one of the world’s largest investment management organizations, as well as a former hedge fund manager and board member at Para Los Ninos educational nonprofit. He is also the brother of one of the co-hosts and has been selected through sheer nepotism.

Also joining us will be the most important part of the show – YOU, in the crowd, asking the big questions!

The facebook event is here if you want to be a doll and RSVP. 


Tickets are $5 at the door. Parking is available east of the venue, Oh My Ribs Entertainment at 6468 Santa Monica Blvd in Hollywood.
