Coolio has a cookbook out called Cookin’ with Coolio: 5 Star Meals at a 1 Star Price.  Coolio has been cooking since he was 10 years old, and has created his own style of cooking that he calls “Ghetto Gourmet”.  Coolio’s recipes are all meant to be comfort foods with a healthy twist that don’t break the bank.  Click the picture below to check out Coolio’s cookbook.

Before the Coolio interview, we talk to a guy named Alper Can, a marketing student from Belgium. Alper left us a comment on our blog that really pissed Chris off, so we wanted to talk to Alper and tell him how we felt about it, and find out what the marketing strategy is behind the  comments that he leaves. We also talk to Alper about what type of underwear he is wearing, and ask him to weigh in on whether or not it’s okay to wear silly cartoon character underwear when you go out on a date.

Go check out Alper Can’s website at and leave him some great comments. Alper wants to inspire young business intellects to become more ambitious and productive. Thanks to Alper for staying up until 2:00am to be on our show.

At the beginning of the show we talk about bicycle gangs, tight clothes that bicyclists wear, snooty European people, men who wear women’s clothes, a guy Sarah works with who wears tight shorts to the office who has earned the nickname “knuckles” because you can see the shape of his genitals underneath the tight shorts. We discuss what kind of underwear they wear in Europe, what type of underwear women prefer to see men wearing and Sarah explains why she likes to wear thong underwear.
