Welcome to episode 6 of Dan Luke is Famous. Titled: Cults, Lunatics and Crazies.” This is “The Dispatch.”
Outside of the green lawns and white picket fences of our homes rests the real America. A land of cults, lunatics, and crazies: Homeless vagarants that eat garbage and burn shoes for warmth, baby gangs of three year old toddlers with tribal tattoss that roam their turf looking for other baby gangs only to take their gerber baby food bottles, break them over a curb and wield them like knives, the streets run red with the blood of babies.
The truth is, to participate in a functioning society is to deal with those that push us out of comfort zones every day. Those that have a different idea of normalcy, and boundaries that we might find “irrational” or perhaps even further, crazy.
Today’s episode of Dan Luke is Famous deals with the Lunatics that pepper our streets, the cults that construct megachurches, and the crazies that accept conspiracy theories as fact.
Because all of us are a little crazy, aren’t we? In fact, some of us even think that we’re famous.
ON BLAST: SOUNDCLOUD.
DUDES! LADIES! We’re abandoning ship over at Soundcloud with Dan Luke is Famous (Podcast) and officially putting them on blast. “But Dan Luke! Why is that?” you might ask. Well, Soundcloud is all style and no substance! It’s pretty looking, but too expensive. Like your Mom. So, I’m just going to host all of the old and new episodes over at the newly redesigned http://danlukeisfamous.com/! That makes more sense anyway. Doesn’t it?
P.S. All guests that have been featured on the podcast via our Soundcloud page thus far – don’t freak out! I will leave the old episodes up as I’m sure you’ve already passed those URL’s and EMBED CODES around like the herpes that is Soundcloud.
Speaking of previous guests, Devon Kay is coming up next.
ACT ONE. THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT.
Devon is a punk rock superhero of sorts. By night he can be seen around Chicago with his guitar, playing his own playful tongue in cheek punk rock songs with his band Devon Kay in the solution. But by day, he works in nerdy anime / videogame shop. Working in any service industry means that you deal with crazies on a daily basis, but what about those that have especially eccentric tastes? This is Devon Kay talking about some especially deranged customers.

ACT TWO. REFLECTIONS ON AN AIRPORT IN DENVER
Greg Worsley is an adept improvisor, but people probably don’t know that a certain high school teacher with a sweet tooth for conspiracy might have had a profound effect on him. I run Greg through a series of conspiracy theories, one concerning a certain airport in Denver, behleld by the lunatics who fuel them which he debunks with a very practical, logical, and critical process.

ACT THREE. UPON ENCOUNTERING THE MEGACHURCH
Alfredo Castil is well known on the Internet podcasting scene, but before his success with the Fredoverse series of podcasts, Fredo grew up as a Catholic in Mexico. One of the first significant encounters he had with America’s unique brand of Christianity was when he beheld, first hand, a Christian Megachurch. And if you ask me, there is nothing more occult than a religious institution the size of a football stadium.
