On Ep 66 Paco and George met up with the talented and hilarious  Baron Vaughn to discuss the documentary Baron made called Fatherless. In America, one in four children grow-up in homes led by single mothers. This was the case for actor/comedian/writer Baron Vaughn (‘Grace and Frankie’) who, with the support of his mother, chose not to let a statistic define him and set out on a quest to search for the father he never knew. Baron’s journey and the revelations about his upbringing are chronicled with a flair for both the comedic and heartfelt in the new doc.

On episode 64 of Sup Doc hosts Paco Romane and George Chen sit down with the very talented comedian/musician Howard Kremer.

The signature “Muscle Shoals sound” developed in songs such as “I’ll Take You There”, “Brown Sugar”, and “When a Man Loves a Woman.” Howard and the boys also discuss Public Enemy, Hip Hop Evolution, docs vs biopics, high school band names, and Jello Biafra.

Every other Monday we check in with our listeners with an even less formal talk between George and Paco catching everyone up on Doc news, comedy shows, and our upcoming episode.
